Engineering Program Manager

Hardware
Full-time
Lighthouse exists to improve human life by giving our physical spaces useful and accessible intelligence.  We’re starting with the home: tell it what you care about, and it tells you when those things happen.

"Let me know if the kids don't get home by 4pm."  
"Tell me if you see someone waving hello while I’m out."  
"Did you see anyone new over the weekend?"

It’s made possible by the combination of cutting edge computer vision, natural language understanding, and 3D sensing like you’d find in an iPhone X or a self-driving car.
