Python Software Developer - Comfy | Enlighted Job Opportunity - USA or Canada

Job Description

Python Software Engineer - Plano, Tx, Charlotte, NC, Any Major US City or Kitchener, Canada 

About Us

Founded in 2012, Comfy | Enlighted is a Siemens-owned business on a mission to connect employees to the people, places, and things they need to do their best work. Our SaaS platform combines building intelligence, space analytics, and a consumer-grade mobile app technology to improve the workplace experience for Fortune 500 companies around the globe. Headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, our fast-growing team balances the dynamic energy of a small company with the backing of a global powerhouse.

Overview

We are looking for Software Engineers to work on Comfy, our market-leading workplace intelligence platform. This is an opportunity to make a difference by developing solutions that make workplaces into interactive and efficient spaces in which to work. Come join our startup culture and participate firsthand in designing the future of workspaces.

Having successfully deployed the first generation of our app, which provided end users with an intuitive way to control the temperature within their building, learning their preferences in the process, we are now well into the next generation, which extends into a range of IT, OT, and IoT use cases (including room booking, access control, wayfinding, and visitor management); and are exploring ways to leverage machine learning across our product. Simultaneously, we are aggressively growing our user base, with some of the largest-ever Comfy deployments currently in flight.

We value clean architecture and modern approaches to software development and testing. Our products consist of cloud-based micro-services and modern web and mobile applications. You will work closely with a tight, agile team that ships features continuously, and you will be able to see the impact of your work on real customers.

As the complexity and scale of our app grows, we need an experienced engineer to rethink and retool our backend services. We’re at the cutting-edge intersection of IoT and mobile apps, which means a lot of never-before-solved challenges around statefulness; cross-system synchronization; and redundancy. In this role you will be working closely alongside our front-end and platforms teams; you’ll be part of the brain-trust that our engineering and product leadership will rely on to advise us on what’s possible, what’s sensible, and what’s simple. In order to do that, you’ll need to have technical depth; systems thinking; and communication skills to evaluate trade-offs around performance, cost, reliability, and scale. This is the ideal role for someone who’s ready to move their career to the next level in terms of technical influence and scope of impact.

About You

  • First and foremost, you love writing software. Your code is comprehensible, well-structured, highly performant; your best days at work are in front of the computer cranking out code on your own, although you have the experience to know that a winning product requires an entire team.
  • You are curious and passionate about knowing “why”, whether it is why a use case is important for a customer, or why something strange happens one time in a hundred tries.
  • You love both learning and teaching. In this role, you will be interfacing with design, front-end, back-end, platforms, analytics, as well as our PM and QA teams; towards that end, you enjoy working across teams to solve hard problems.
  • Agile development is second-nature. Not only will you be expected to participate in daily scrums, sprint planning, and retros; you'll be expected to help improve our ceremonies.
  • You strive for quality, and are obsessed with unit tests, automation, and squashing any bugs that sneak through. But it's more than that: you'll use our product, realize "hey! that's not what I expected!" and figure out how to make it better for everyone.

Your Skills and Experience

  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science, engineering, or other related discipline required or equivalent experience
  • Deep knowledge of Python development in a professional setting
  • Expertise in service-oriented architectures; ideally, you've developed APIs for both internal and external-facing services
  • You're obsessed with performance, and have experience with instrumentation and monitoring services to ensure the application is behaving as expected
  • You have a basic knowledge of computer science fundamentals, including data structures, algorithms, and object-oriented design
  • Experience with Django or similar server framework
  • Ability to define, design and deliver a distributed automation platform for compute, storage, database, queuing and other infrastructure
  • Understanding of web service development
  • Knowledge of multi-tier architectures across multiple technology stacks: Python, web servers, caching, application servers, RDBMS/NoSQL: Postgres, Dynamo DB

This position requires employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 unless they are granted a medical or religious exemption. (For candidates hired in the USA)

Bonus Points For

  • Experience building complex, scalable, high-performance software systems that have been successfully delivered to customers
  • Experience with Cordova, Android, iOS development
  • Experience with authorization (OAuth, Auth0, SAML, etc.)
  • Experience working with third-party / IoT integrations
  • Experience with Building Management Systems and Controllers
  • Experience working with platforms for Big Data or Machine Learning solutions

Technologies We Use: Python | Django | Celery | Twisted | Redis | Postgres | Vue | Kubernetes | Docker | SaltStack | Git | Travis CI | AWS | Azure 

Our Benefits Include 

  • Market-leading software application centered on improving the workplace experience :)
  • Take-what-you-need vacation policy
  • Competitive salaries
  • Generous medical, dental and vision insurance
  • Matching 401k policy
  • Frequent team events (costumes optional)
  • Independent start-up culture with the backing of a global corporate powerhouse, Siemens

Our Promise to You

We believe your work is an extension of yourself. At Comfy | Enlighted, we hire many sorts of selves and that’s what makes us exceptional. We value diversity of thought, always asking tough questions, committing to solutions—and we do that best when we have and nurture every point of view. We value you, and we want to hear you, learn from you, and move forward together.
