Spark is looking for full-stack engineers to build out our scalable infrastructure for connected devices, the Spark Cloud.
We solve hard problems. Building a scalable infrastructure for connected devices is a hard problem. This isn't your standard "how do I handle lots of HTTP requests efficiently" kind of infrastructure; a device cloud is by its nature a complex network of interconnected services with challenging message routing and queueing needs.
Our Cloud engineering team works closely together to develop and test new features that expand the functionality of the Cloud infrastructure while maintaining its reliability, speed, scalability, and security.
Examples of some of the problems you might be solving:
We're a fast-growing start-up with venture capital and crowdfunding in hand seeking like-minded individuals to join our team and help define the nascent Internet of Things.
Here at Spark, we make tools for engineers and designers to create amazing new experiences through internet-connected hardware. Our first product, the Spark Core, is a Wi-Fi development kit designed for engineers, designers, and product creators who want to build a Wi-Fi connected product. We also provide a cloud service, the Spark Cloud, to communicate with and manage a fleet of connected devices. Our tech stack provides a simple, affordable, open source solution for connected products, for things like Wi-Fi connected sprinkler systems, garage door openers, thermostats, Nerf guns, whatever. We help everyone from Makers to large enterprises, and we're building our team to keep up with our growing base of customers big and small.
Spark is currently based in Minneapolis, but will be moving HQ to San Francisco this summer. We offer competitive salaries, equity, health insurance, and a casual, flexible work environment. We will hire employees anywhere, although proximity to San Francisco is a plus.
