Ever considered why all dog collars are made of nylon or leather, why leashes do not contain any technology, and why everything in this space looks like fishing gear? Well, this company couldn’t find a good reason either.
This fast growing DTC brand is reinventing the relationship between dogs and their humans. They are ex from Nest, Square, Google, MakerBot and Canary andbuild amazing hardware and software that put old brands in the closet and bring a digital rebirth to this space.
They believe that the dog/human relationship is amazing and that it’s time to use technology to take it to the next level. They enable dog owners to keep their best friend safe and in good health, monitor their behavior and leverage data to create a stronger bond between the two species.
They love dogs (of course!) and are having a lot of fun building amazing products to bring this space to the 21st century.
The Challenge: what they do requires the integration of aesthetics / design, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, RF communication, firmware, mobile apps, cloud systems, and everything in between. This is way above the technical complexity of your typical startup job! They are looking for people who enjoy hard challenges and love what they do. They set the bar high and “impossible” means “let me find a solution” in their world.

They are looking for a Senior Software Engineer.
As one of the company’s early engineer, you love building amazing things from nothing. You are comfortable with multiple backend technologies and familiar with best architecture practices. You will work closely with the rest of the engineering team to create best-in-class services and backend systems.
Expect to be working on real engineering challenges in the backend: data aggregation, machine learning, scalable services, and many other interesting problems.
Their development areas range from hardware to firmware, backend and mobile development. You can get involved with any of these areas as you wish and learn new technologies on the fly. Mobile apps are native and backend stack is fairly standard. Knowledge of the stack is not a strong pre-requisite.
You are a SW engineer by training and have a strong track delivering great software from design to production. You have led at least one consumer product from start to finish.
