About The Role
About the job
We have an exciting opportunity to join us for one of our clients, a Paris-based startup working on the future industry standard for touchless building access control solutions. Their innovative solution, based on leading edge technologies, will allow you to gain experience with IoT, highly scalable Cloud Platforms, complex integrations via API and latest generation apps with carefully crafted UI/UX.
The company automates the process of securing residential building access and has several unique core features which are attracting enormous interest from within the industry. This has resulted in closing their latest round of funding which allows them to now ramp up their development and you will hold a key position in the engineering team as they move out of their MVP stages.
You’ll take on the exiting challenge to build, from the ground up, our first set of Android Embedded apps which will run on the company’s Access Control devices. Laying solid foundations, you will help us shape the team and organize ourselves into powering our hardware with extremely reliable apps, ensuring smooth integration with our cloud platform and mobile apps.
On a regular day, you’ll work with the product manager, the mobile frontend developers (Android / iOS), the UI/UX designer, the Cloud backend developers, the IoT engineer and the CTO to bring on new features, resolve issues and propose enhancements.
You will be involved in various stages of the project, from the requirement analysis to its delivery and production. You will also be involved in contributing to improving features and the overall design of the Platform.
As a founding member of the team, you will have the opportunity to take a leadership role, whether it be as a team lead, technology advocate or driving topics that help support your colleagues, customers and the organization.
