IoT Engineer

About us

Weave Grid builds software to make it cheaper and safer for utilities to serve electric vehicles, add renewable energy resources, and save customers money. Our mission is to drive rapid decarbonization in the global transport and power sectors by intelligently connecting electric vehicles to the grid.

We are currently in market with early utility clients, and we must rapidly build and deliver product improvements to serve existing customers and win new deals from our deep pipeline. As a rapidly growing company, we are building a thoughtful, capable team that can adapt with our rapidly evolving circumstances.

Industry context

We are living through historic changes in the ways people use transportation — a sector that is now one of the largest and fastest-growing sources of greenhouse gas emissions.  

Electric vehicle (EV) sales are growing at over 60% a year, with vehicle manufacturers spending billions to get ready for an electric future. Boston Consulting Group estimates EVs will account for over half of all vehicle sales by 2030. Electric utilities see massive opportunities in this transformation, as the rise of EVs could drive more growth in energy demand over the next 10 years than any decade since the 1950s.  

Larger EV fleets can also help support renewable energy sources on the grid. But to accommodate growth in EVs, utilities will need to make substantial investments in infrastructure and technology. Weave Grid's software helps meet the challenge of our transition to electrified transport.

Job description

We are looking for an engineer to lead the development of our device telemetry system.  This involves implementing reliable communications with a range of IoT devices.  The person in this role will develop microservices and data processing pipelines for collection and ingestion into our own systems.

About You

‍First and foremost, you possess some experience with Internet of Things (IoT) data collection and API integration. You can draw on a variety of prior projects, both successes and otherwise, to guide your current work.  You are aware of and have proposed solutions for dealing with the most common hurdles in IoT data collection and remote monitoring.  

You are experienced enough to operate independently based on desired outcomes and functional requirements, although you will be working closely with other members of our vehicle-facing engineering team. We are largely a Python shop, although we are open to implementing parts of our system with Node and Go where appropriate.

  • Experience with IoT, SCADA or in the industrial or operational sensor space
  • Prior experience using and developing REST APIs
  • Charles proxy / Fiddler / Postman experience
  • Comfort with modern, agile software engineering practices - version control, branches, sprints, scrums and all that
  • Strong commitment to technical collaboration, and communication skills to match

Beyond these core skills and a relevant track record, we hire people who will expand the culture and cumulative wisdom of the team as a whole. This can take many forms - relevant past projects, hard-won perspective from personal history, an unusual or adjacent skillset, a motivating passion, and so on. We are whole individuals, not just functional role-fillers, and we value everything that you can bring to the team. Help us understand the whole picture!

Finally, you should be strongly motivated by Weave Grid’s mission. Energy and transportation expertise are not necessary, but it is important that you are passionate about tackling the climate crisis head on, by improving societal and environmental health.

We are looking to fill this position as soon as possible. Compensation will include competitive salary, equity, and benefits.  Some preference will be given to candidates based in the San Francisco Bay Area, though candidates with solid remote skills should certainly apply
