Senior Back-end Software Engineer

About us

Infogrid is making the unfulfilled promise of scalable IoT (Internet of Things) a reality. Our goal is to be the global go-to provider for connected devices in smart buildings, creating dynamic solutions for everyday challenges. Our mantra is "keep it simple, keep it stable" and this ethos drives our product development.

We are a small, rapidly expanding team, but already have a broad portfolio of blue-chip clients – a testament to the strength of our product market fit. We are supported by The University of Oxford’s accelerator and smart-money investors.

Infogrid is an IoT platform (Sensors + SaaS) capable of handling millions of data events from hundreds of thousands of sensors every day. With cutting-edge, low-cost micro sensors provided by a 3rd party partner we're able to turn any building into a ‘smart’ building at a fraction of the cost of existing providers. The simplicity of our solution enables clients to self-install thousands of sensors in a matter of hours, and receive immediate real-time data. With the analytics and reporting we generate, companies can run more efficiently, pre-empt failures, save money, meet regulatory requirements, provide better environments

About the role

Working with us means working directly with live, high-profile end clients and shaping the future of our product. You’ll be dealing with very large, real datasets from a wide range of sensor types and use cases – with data processed in real time. You’ll work in Python, Microservices, Docker and AWS. We’re looking for you to join so you can help scale out a distributed architecture for lots of different data sources and lots of different live clients.

You’ll work alongside a very small team, meaning you’ll have loads of responsibility and will make a huge impact on our architecture processes. The work will be challenging, but fun; you’ll work at the cutting edge of IoT and learn a huge amount. Most of all, we offer the opportunity to help shape the future of IoT for end users, globally.
