About the role

About Charge:

Charge Robotics is a Series A startup building robots that build solar farms.

Demand for new solar projects is booming (1/5th of all the solar that exists in the US was installed last year!), but today’s construction companies can’t keep up due to limited labor resources.

We thought this was insane, so we started working on robots to directly address this bottleneck and speed up the world’s transition to renewables.

Charge is a fast-moving company which means constant opportunities for learning and growth. You’ll have a large impact on the direction of our company and our product, which will be reflected in significant equity compensation. And you get to work with 🤖 giant robots 🤖.

If you are excited to work on interesting technical problems with direct climate impact, you’re going to fit right in at Charge Robotics.

Charge’s funding:

We’re MIT-founded and backed by some of Silicon Valley’s top investors, including Lux, YC (W21), Uphonest, Collab, E14, Outset, and more.

What you’ll be working on:

  • Architecting, developing, and maintaining high-quality code and documentation for our fleet of fully-automated factories
  • Designing and building software interfaces to manage the operations of our robot factories

As a Senior Software Engineer at Charge Robotics, your work will directly deploy gigawatts of clean power generation.

You:

  • Are an experienced full-stack web developer
  • Know how to write software as a member of a team, including writing clean code, documenting it, testing it, and using version control and CI.
  • Have excellent written communication skills
  • Can’t stand tedious work and will find a way to automate it
  • Are based in or can relocate to the SF bay area
  • Are excited to see your work deployed onto actual solar farms!

If you’re interested in leveraging your software development skills to have massive climate impact, we want to talk to you.

It’d also be nice if you:

  • Have at least a 4-year degree in CS or similar
  • Know how to instrument and develop highly performant code (networking, high-bandwidth sensor drivers, GPU programming)
  • Gain satisfaction from personally playing a part in mitigating climate change
