Our mission is to move humanity off of fossil fuel heating. 20% of US global warming emissions come from homes (that’s more than cars!). The largest driver of home emissions is burning fossil fuels for heat. To stop climate change, over 80M US homes need to transition from combustion to efficient, electric heat pumps over the coming decades.

We believe for this to happen the world needs fantastic products that are easy to purchase. Today's heat pumps lack great design, make limited use of software, and are difficult and stressful to adopt. We are building a next generation, beautifully designed, AI optimized home heating and cooling system that is 10x better than what is on the market today.

Our founders recently left Google, where they had highly successful careers across engineering, design, and product management. We are backed by some of the best climate tech and AI investors in the world.

We are looking for an amazing engineer to lead embedded system development on a brand new HW product. This is a rare opportunity to put your unique fingerprint on a high potential early stage start-up that will accelerate decarbonization through the adoption of heat pumps. You will be hands on setting technical architecture, overseeing implementation, and building and cultivating a world class team.

Qualifications

    • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering or equivalent experience
    • 5 years experience managing and building high performance software teams
    • Proven experience shipping quality software / hardware products 
    • Ability to set technical direction from the low level firmware through embedded layers
    • Willing and excited to get your hands dirty building an amazing product
    • Ability to inspire, create a strong culture, and recruit top talent
    • Experience working with embedded software system design and verification
    • Experience with motor controllers, sensors, and hardware manufacturing
    • Experience with control systems, sensor fusion, and optimization algorithms
    • Passion for electrification and home automation
    • Strong mission alignment around climate and decarbonization
    • Excited to coach and mentor junior and senior engineers
    • Excited to build a product and team from scratch and ability to thrive in ambiguity

Responsibilities

    • Lead Embedded SW development for an innovative and novel heat pump system.
    • Set technical direction and manage schedule and deliverables
    • Build, manage, and continuously develop SW team
    • Be a hands on contributor on the SW side
This is an opportunity to join a highly ambitious team of people who truly care about the impact of their work and quality of their products. We are on a mission to accelerate a species-level human transition. For over a million years we've been burning things to stay warm. It's time to move to a better way of living.
