We are just getting a sense of what this could be and every customer request, every new business model starting to emerge on top of our API gets us even more excited. We are developers making products for other developers. We are designing APIs that we ourselves would be delighted with, developer dashboards that look beautiful but are incredibly functional. For this reason, we are looking for product led engineers. We don't have Product Managers or Project Managers, we expect you to understand the needs of your customer, know what's possible to deliver and just get the job done! You have two roles as a founding engineer - the first is building the product and the second is building the company.
We are also developers who care about what we are building at the end of the day. It's important to us that it's not just another e-commerce product, social media app or ads platform, but something that may actually have some meaningful impact. Admittedly, we may not be the extreme climate warriors you read about at the latest COP forum but we do care deeply about climate change, and aligning our skills and time to making a difference is key.
It just so happens, we also LOVE tech! It's hard for software engineers to have a play in climate tech as most of those roles have some hardware component. After all, climate change is impact from Atoms not Bits. Our bet is on the Electrification of Everything, and as the world transitions to electricity then more electricity meters will exist. Lucky for us, these meters are SMART, they're already plugged in and already transmitting data .... somewhere =)
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thoughtful written communication is important to us, so write a short note letting us know why you're excited about the role and why you think you'd be a good fit. Don't worry too much about a CV but do send us your LinkedIn profile and your Github repo so we can check it out. This is good signal for us regarding your level of curiosity when it comes to tech.
If you really wanted to impress us, you could consider the following challenge (this is optional but it could be kinda fun). It gives you a good sense of what's possible using the Openvolt API also. If you do opt to do this, then either zip up the solution or post it to a github repo and include the link in your email.
The timeframe is for the month of January 2023
