Senior Software Engineer / Python/Golang

Exciting opportunity with a well-funded, high tech startup in the IoT and clean energy space. The Director of Software is hiring their first Data Platform Lead.

This company was founded after 10 years of research by the founder himself. Their electric motor is patented and drastically reduces energy costs by having a microchip at the "brain" of the motor which allows users to cut costs related to space conditioning, refrigeration, and maintenance - while also having a programmable IoT controls package that easily integrates with large-scale electric systems. It has many uses including autonomous/electric vehicles and corporate buildings/campuses.

The Data Platform Lead will define architecture and implement ingestion pipelines and a data store for all incoming motor data. This product was brought to market last year after four years of R&D. The “cloud team” is responsible for all software analytics on top of this core product.

Tech includes Golang, Python, AWS, InfluxDB, and TensorFlow, but the Director of Software is looking for strong engineers with startup experience that have a generalist skill-set.

It's a ground-floor opportunity and definitely a startup to watch in 2019!
