Cisco Meraki/Cisco SF Recruiting Events

In 2003, a group of graduate students at MIT set out to build a simple, scalable and cost-effective wireless network to blanket Cambridge, MA. They succeeded, and in the process, invented a new network architecture, based in cloud computing, to make truly plug and play large-scale networks. Realizing they were on to something big, they left MIT, moved to California and started Meraki, now part of Cisco.
