The Role

We are seeking an experienced mobile engineer to build polished, user-friendly mobile applications for two categories of our customers: homeowners and product installers. Our mobile apps are the key to unlocking the potential of the Span panel for our users by giving them insights and never before available control over the energy usage of their homes. As the first dedicated mobile engineer, you will have the autonomy to chart the direction of the mobile experience and build a team to drive the development of your goals.

  • Collaborate with product and design teams to understand customer needs and product requirements
  • Design, implement and test entire features in our React Native apps
  • Partner with the firmware and backend engineers to build seamless integration with our hardware product

As we are a startup, this list should be considered neither exhaustive nor complete. We are excited for people to explore responsibilities outside their normal areas of expertise if the need or interest arises.

Potential Projects

  • Build out easy to use but robust authentication that is secure enough for an app that controls the electricity of someone's home
  • Stand up features and notifications to help homeowners manage their energy usage, especially during power outages
  • Setup the app for multiple communication pathways including local wifi and bluetooth that allow seamless communication with the panel when away and at home, even if the wider internet goes out
  • Build the manual and automated testing and verification processes for our mobile apps
