What We're About
At Brewbird, we believe in building a sustainable future in coffee. We’re developing a technology platform to scale the $100 billion specialty coffee market, while working with top local and national roasters to bring the highest quality cup of coffee to every home and office. Brewbird is backed by some of the world’s best venture funds. We’re a passionate team of builders who use technology to craft elegant and delightful solutions to challenging real world problems.

What You'll Be Working On
You’ll join our early-stage team to lead firmware design for our machine that sits at the intersection of quality and sustainability. You'll be responsible for fine-tuning the existing codebase, writing new real time code, and setting a foundation of best practices for the current and future team. If you're interested in being hands-on with everything from developing driver level code to creating tests & documentation - come drink some coffee with us!

We are headquartered in San Mateo, CA, but you don't have to be in the office every day.

You are:

    • A technical swiss army knife. You'll be constantly collaborating with teammates to define requirements, develop software architecture, write unit and integration tests, and deliver solutions from concept to production. You'll also have the opportunity to participate in brainstorms and contribute to areas outside of your primary expertise.
    • A highly engaged foundation builder. Outside of code reviews, design reviews, and documentation, you will be working with all cross-functional teams to make sure we meet product requirements and create a delightful user experience.
    • A leader at heart . You care about growth in yourself and others, want to exist in and contribute to a culture of feedback, and will jump at mentorship opportunities.

You'll need experience with:

    • Development for RTOS (FreeRTOS, or other)
    • Strong C/C++ experience
    • Experience working with low level drivers (UART, I2C, SPI, USB, Flash, ADC, etc)
    • WiFi/Bluetooth
    • BSP/Board Package Support
    • Experience in State Machine Design and practice Thread Safe Design
    • Understanding of build and automation tools (GNU make, cmake, etc)
    • Hardware & firmware debugging (JTAG, SWD, oscilloscopes, logic analyzers)
    • Ability to read and understand electrical specifications, schematics and datasheets
    • Good development workflow (comfortable in Agile development, track work in JIRA, use of version control efficiently)
    • And ideally 5+ years of experience in this field!

Our core values ☕

    • We operate with a spirit of generosity. We go the extra mile to act in ways that allow others to experience happiness, success and fulfillment - in big ways and small. We believe acting and communicating openly, honestly and generously is a virtuous cycle.
    • We do the work that truly matters. There's so much we can do, and so we ruthlessly focus on the things that allow us to have the most impact. To us, results matter more than hours worked or time spent. We protect our time and are considerate of the time of others so that we can all be at our best in work and life.
    • We believe in joining forces. We bring people with different experiences, backgrounds and perspectives together to accomplish far more than we ever could alone. When we don't know something, we ask. We believe in supporting each other and ultimately hold ourselves accountable to each person that makes up the Brewbird whole - our customers, roasting partners, employees and more.
    • We prove bold ambition and integrity can co-exist. We're in it for the long haul. We set big, audacious goals - ones that make our hearts proud - and take the responsibility that comes with them seriously. We're honest with ourselves and others about where we are and what we're working on. We keep on keeping on with persistence and seek to master the art of resilience along the way.
    • We cultivate joy, together. For us, coffee is ultimately about feeling good. And, we believe the best things in life are experienced together. We're motivated by genuine human interaction. Work and productivity have their time and important place, yet we're not "nothing but business" kind of people. We believe in bringing people together to celebrate life's moments - big and small.
At Brewbird, we put our people first. In addition to a competitive compensation package with meaningful
