What We Are Building

We believe that large industry verticals, largely ignored by modern computing, are changing at an unprecedented pace. We are a YC-backed startup building AI-&-IoT-powered quality intelligence for oil & gas blending, logistics & trading. We are the only AI & IoT powered solution that empowers O&G operators to know true product quality and optimize its value, yielding gains up to $5 – 9 per barrel.

 

Who we are looking for

Backed by top Silicon Valley, Houston and Canadian investors, we are rapidly growing. We are looking for a Software Team Lead that will:
  • Lead the planning, development, and implementation of new software products and features.
  • Collaborate with senior leadership, business development, and analytics teams to define software features and high-level strategy
  • Serve as a mentor to junior members of the software development team, contributing to their professional growth


Desired Qualifications

  • Growth mindset, passion for learning new things, restlessness
  • First-principles thinking – you have the strong desire to understand any topic at a deeper level than most, and are unsatisfied with decisions based on convention or unjustified assumptions
  • A passion for helping those around you become better at what they do
  • Strong business sense and stakeholder-focused approach to problem solving – you believe the best products solve real problems for real people
  • Strong technical background in software development – ability to dive deeply into technical details with team members, provide meaningful mentorship to junior developers in technical areas and occasionally contribute code if needed
  • Experience successfully shipping products as a manager or team lead
  • Some experience with enterprise software preferred, but people with consumer backgrounds will also be considered

 

Bonus Qualifications

  • Experience building and shipping complex enterprise software to large clients
  • Experience with Elixir/Erlang, React.js and Python
  • Experience with data science, machine learning and data visualization
  • Any exposure to large industrial processes, chemical/biochemical analysis and/or logistics
