Gridware is on a mission to create a future without deadly wildfires. We’re a startup building hardware and software that monitors the power grid to prevent and detect faults that lead to wildfire ignition. (More about Gridware below).
To make that happen, we’re currently looking for an embedded software engineer to join our growing team.
Our goal is to stop grid-ignited wildfires. To do that, our devices need to run robust, well-tested, and power efficient firmware. We are looking for you to help us develop that firmware. You will solve challenges related to power consumption, communications, and signal processing, enabling our devices to detect increasingly subtle faults in increasingly remote regions.
This is what you’ll be doing:
