About the role

Memfault is seeking a Senior Backend Engineer to join our engineering team. Our tight-knit team manages a platform that stretches from the metal to the cloud and enables millions of devices to work without a hitch.

You'll be working with a team of generalists and on a very large technology stack: we're not the typical web startup. We do everything from SDKs for microcontrollers, to large-scale data pipelining in the backend, to complex custom charting in the frontend.

We're a small but experienced team who has worked at startups, scale-ups, and includes former principal engineers at large tech companies. Our development process encourages and provides training for you to contribute to as many areas of our technology stack as you’re interested in.

You will:

  • Onboard as a backend developer
  • Over the long term, work on the parts of our huge technology stack and the technical challenges that that interest you
  • Start with simple, pragmatic solutions and iterate quickly
  • Help bring modern development tools & practices to a whole software engineering discipline
  • Have a major impact on our product, our infrastructure, our culture and our business

You are:

  • Caring, kind, low ego: other people do better when they work with you
  • A backend developer with 3+ years of experience building web applications
  • Well versed with, and enthusiastic about Python backends
  • Passionate about building good products that deliver value to end users
  • Excited to learn more about hardware and embedded software

You have:

  • Proven experience in building scalable backends in Python (Django, Flask, SQLAlchemy, Celery, PostgreSQL, TimescaleDB, Redis, AWS, Docker a plus)

We want you (yes, you!) to apply

Research shows that candidates from underrepresented backgrounds often don't apply for roles if they don't meet all the criteria — unlike majority candidates meeting significantly fewer requirements.

We strongly encourage you to apply if you’re interested: we’d love to know how you can amplify our team with your unique experience!

About Memfault

Memfault is the first IoT reliability platform that empowers teams to build more robust devices at scale. Today hardware teams have little insight into how their products are performing, and what issues are driving the majority of field failures, with Memfault they can operate with the same speed and agility as software organizations. Companies such as Logitech, Bose, Whoop, and Verkada use Memfault’s performance monitoring, device debugging, and OTA update capabilities to ship fast and build high quality products. Memfault was founded by veterans of Pebble, Fitbit, and Oculus, and is backed by fantastic investors such as YCombinator and Uncork Capital.

Why you should join Memfault

Memfault is the first observability platform for hardware. We are a YC and Uncork Capital-backed developer tool built by veterans of Fitbit, Oculus, and Pebble

We started with error reporting. Imagine having to talk to your customers on the phone to get details on bugs they encounter on your website or in your mobile app? That's still the state of the art for hardware.

This is a big and growing problem. Connected devices are everywhere: there are more of them than cellphones, laptops, and tablets combined. Increasingly, they are running complex software to leverage machine learning and computer vision at the edge. The current state of tools is untenable in the face of growth in both numbers and complexity.

Come work with us to bring an entire category into the 21st century, and redefine how millions of engineers build their products.
