Hardware + software to detect powerline failure and prevent wildfires.
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 and blackouts. (More about Gridware below).
To make that happen, we’re currently looking for a frontend engineer to join our growing team.
Imagine in 50 years, you are speaking to a bunch of children about the climate crisis. They specifically ask about the uncontrolled wildfires and blackouts that used to threaten people’s lives and homes. “How did we solve that?” they are asking. Imagine being able to tell them what YOU did to solve this problem. This role, 50 years from now, will be able to say: “Actually, I was working for Gridware at the time, building wildfire and blackout alerting and monitoring software.”
Your application will have a higher chance of standing out if you have one (or more) of the following skills or experiences. If you, however, have all of the required skills but none of the bonus skills we still encourage you to apply.
Although we do not require candidates to submit a cover letter, candidates who wish to have their application stand out are invited to write a cover letter outlining one or all of the following things in a bullet-point format:

We are a mission-driven team passionate about saving lives and creating a future without wildfires or blackouts.
Save Lives Everyday, Everywhere
Prevent catastrophic failures by building a highly adaptable platform capable of answering any question about critical infrastructure.
We provide a full-stack (hardware + firmware + software) solution for real-time monitoring of America's power distribution grid. Our low-cost hardware platforms are deployed to power poles, where they detect and predict faults that lead to wildfire ignition or outages, expedite repairs to limit the duration power outages, and prevent issues from starting catastrophes
Gridware’s technology is designed to unlock essential value for other adjacent verticals. Our unique positioning allows us to solve some of the world’s most critical challenges - from helping policy makers make data-driven infrastructure decisions to helping farmers overcome micro-climate challenges. While others turn a blind eye to these traditional and highly-regulated industries, we at Gridware believe it’s our duty to find win-for-all scenarios that lead to a prosperous future for coming generations.
