Want to join a company that is changing the way cities work?
OptiRTC, a technology company focused on monitoring and control of stormwater infrastructure, is seeking a full-time IoT Engineer to join our R&D team in Boston.
We are a small, multidisciplinary team of engineers working to invent and implement the next generation of internet-of-things-based, real-time environmental management. We uniquely combine data describing the actual state of the environment with weather forecasts to actively manage water storage infrastructure, increasing its effectiveness and helping keep water resources clean. To make this all happen, the R&D team builds, operates, and maintains a set of cloud services and embedded devices: collectively the Opti Platform. We are a small enough team that every engineer plays a crucial role in our success.
The right candidate has a background in either software engineering, electrical engineering, or computer engineering and has some experience developing both PCB-based hardware as well as the firmware that runs on it. Additionally, the ideal candidate is familiar with technologies outside of the hardware world (e.g. the use of REST APIs), embraces modern development practices such as the use of Git source control and unit testing, and has a drive to continue to improve development practices at Opti. Past experience in environmental monitoring is preferred as most of the systems we integrate with are in that context.
Responsibilities of the position include, but are not limited to, contributing to the development and support of our Particle.io-based embedded products: creating new functionality, increasing unit-test and integration-test coverage, developing and maintaining product documentation and materials for sales-oriented product cut-sheets, and supporting our operations engineers with complex troubleshooting of both in-house and remote sensors, controls, and embedded devices. This position will report to OptiRTC’s VP of Information and Technology and will be instrumental in supporting existing services and producing new implementations and features on our platform.
Specific activities this role will take part in include:
You will be working with a group of passionate software, environmental, water resources, and mechanical engineers who are eager to learn and improve and who are committed to OptiRTC’s vision of adaptive cities and safer and cleaner water.
Preferred candidates will hold a Bachelor’s degree in computer science, computer engineering, or a related discipline. Experience and/or certifications in related computer science and information technology applications may be substituted for the degree concentration. Preferred candidate will also have 2 to 5 years of related experience. A background in science or engineering is beneficial.
PLEASE NOTE: Along with standard interviews, you will be asked to take and submit our coding test as part of your application. For this position, please submit our OptiIot-VendingMachine test.
