Building Robotics Inc is a trailblazing Silicon Valley company in Smart Buildings and IoT. We're looking for the brightest minds to join our team as we build end-to-end IoT solutions from sensors to cloud-based Big Data and web-based applications. One of our core missions is to help our customers meet their sustainability challenges. Our innovative lighting control systems are already delivering energy savings of up to 90% at a large and growing number of Fortune 500 companies. Once deployed in commercial buildings, intelligent lighting networks forms the basis for new IoT applications such as space utilization, traffic flow, asset tracking, and air quality monitoring, allowing customers to gain insights into how their buildings and assets are being used.
Building Robotics is part of the Siemens family of companies, combining the agility and culture of a Silicon Valley start-up with the global reach of an industry heavyweight. You will join an energetic, cross-functional team working to seize an enormous market opportunity, backed by all the resources of Siemens, with approximately 4,300 employees across Canada who work together to deliver solutions for sustainable energy, intelligent infrastructure, healthcare, and the future of manufacturing.
We are looking for Senior Python Developers 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. Join us in Transforming the Everyday!
What will you do?
- 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.
What will you need to succeed?
- Bachelor’s degree in computer science, engineering, or other related discipline required or equivalent experience
- Deep knowledge of Python development in a professional setting with at least 5 years of experience
- 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
- Experience building complex, scalable, high-performance software systems that have been successfully delivered to customers
Bonus Points For
- 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: Docker/Kubernetes | AWS | Docker | Datadog | Gitlab CI/CD | Python | TensorFlow | Shell Scripting | Terraform | PostgreSQL | MongoDB | Kafka |Redis | MLflow
