\nCome join SparkMeter's software team and help increase electricity access in developing countries. As a Web Engineer, you'll help build the web application our utility customers use to set up and operate our affordable smart metering systems. Your work will be high impact: the electrification your code will help enable is not an incremental improvement, it is a fundamental change in the way real people live, work, go to school, eat, and relax.\n\nYou'll focus on these areas:\n\n\n* Frontend development. You'll be in charge of our web application's frontend, writing modern HTML, CSS, & JavaScript to develop new features and keep existing features working smoothly. You'll set the direction for the frontend stack, making sure we're choosing secure and supportable patterns, libraries, and tools.\n\n* Backend development. You'll work closely with Johan Dahlin, our backend-focused engineer, to write efficient backend code with a footprint small enough to run well on inexpensive hardware like Raspberry Pis.\n\n* Product development. Engineers are key contributors to the product development process at SparkMeter. You'll participate in the product design and refine the development roadmap by attending product meetings, helping to develop user stories, and vetting designs for usability and implementation.\n\n\n\n\nIn your first few months you'll:\n\n\n* Improve low bandwidth performance. Our customers use inexpensive Android tablets and high latency connections to access the web interface. You'll remove extraneous code, minimize requests, cache as much as you can, and explore other techniques to make the application work well for all users.\n\n* Build new data visualizations. Microgrids generate a lot of data. You'll help design new visualizations using Pandas, Highcharts, and other tools to to help our customers understand how the grid is working and make better decisions.\n\n* Visit a microgrid. You'll have the opportunity to travel to a microgrid project to see how it works, how the utility administers it, and the impact it has on the community — and you'll apply what you learn to improve our metering systems when you get back.\n\n\n\n\nSparkMeter's Stack\nOur smart meter firmware is written in C, and the meters communicate with each other and their base station with a TCP/JSON API over USB to radio. Python (Flask) web applications run both on the base stations and in the cloud. We use PostgreSQL and SQLAlchemy for a data store, Celery / RabbitMQ for asynchronous operations, and Pandas for data analysis. The Bootstrap-based web frontend uses a mix of Angular and traditional, server-driven views.\n\nWhere You'll Work\nSparkMeter's software team is based in our Waltham, Massachusetts office, but our engineers are all over the world. You're welcome to join us in the Boston area, to work remotely, or some combination of the two.\n\nHow You'll Work\nWe use an Agile-like workflow to run the development process. You'll join daily software team stand-ups to build relationships and report on personal development progress, and weekly bug triage meetings to make sure we're fixing as many bugs as we can before writing new code. You'll also work with other engineers in regular code reviews to teach and learn new coding strategies and catch mistakes.\n\nSparkMeter was founded to promote opportunity in underrepresented communities.\nSparkMeter's core value is opportunity: the opportunity for underserved communities to achieve great things. That's why our mission is to increase access to electricity in underserved communities - it is electricity and the services derived from it that unlock and create those opportunities. This value is reflected in our hiring ethos: we believe that the strongest teams have diverse backgrounds. Our approach to hiring has been validated by academic and industry studies that show that workforce diversity improves team and business performance. (It has also been validated by the quality of the team we've assembled so far!) We encourage applications from members of groups currently underrepresented in web development & software engineering.
