Elemental Machines is changing the way research scientists leverage information by creating full-stack data solutions - sensors, software and machine learning/AI. We are currently building a team based in the San Francisco Bay Area focused on rapid prototyping and development with IoT sensors and software to support experimental and early pilot projects with a wide variety of research science market.
The ideal candidate will be someone who considers themselves a Hacker or Maker first and foremost and has a strong demonstrated passion for experimenting and problem solving using cutting edge technology, especially in the IoT space. Given a customer project, they will be expected to work with the team to come up with a technical solution that could include hardware, software and built vs sourced devices, and quickly develop a proof of concept to test with the customer.
They will be comfortable covering the entire stack - building a device, programming basic interfaces as proof of concepts, deploying to a customer site and getting feedback in real time. They’ll be happy getting their hands dirty, rapidly iterating to get to a solution, and doing basic tech transfer to our manufacturing and product team (based in Cambridge, MA) for productization.
What we offer: a fast-paced, fun, intimate startup atmosphere located just south of SF with the ability to learn a number of skills and grow with the company. We’re a small team of talented hardware, software and data scientists who love just making ‘stuff’.
Some examples of things we’ve played with:
- ultra lower power BLE sensors deployable in harsh environments
- swarm sensor technology to blanket a room in self-locating sensors
- mobile programs for meshing multiple data streams in real time
- a robot for complex feedback controlled experiments
