Software Engineer – Sensors and IoT Applications

Savi Technology is hiring experienced Software Engineers excited by the prospect of combining the Internet of Things, Big Data and Machine Learning to create solutions that provide business unprecedented visibility and insight into literally any thing that moves across land, sea or air. We are agile and fast-paced. We use the latest “Big Data”, Machine Learning, and visualization technologies. We provide end-to-end solutions that let managers and executives make decisions based on information and predictions literally learned from sensor, open and enterprise data.

Our tech stack marries the advantages of traditional application architecture with Lambda “Big Data” processing, providing you the opportunity to work a broad variety of great technologies: Node.js, Kafka, Storm, Spark, Hadoop, Cassandra, PostGRES, WildFly, Flask, SciKit-Learn, HTML5/LESS, Angular and D3.js, iOS and Android (we are even Google Glass Explorers). We use tools like Github Flow, Grunt, Maven and Jenkins with Slack, Hubot, Ansible, and Docker to reduce lifecycle friction and make development and testing less tedious.

If you believe “its all about the data” and are excited by the combination of a “can do” startup culture and the customer base and financials of an established company, and want use the Internet of Things to build solutions to tackle big real-world challenges, then Savi Technology is right for you.
