Temboo is home to environmentalists, technologists, designers, and everyone in between. We believe in empowering all people to use emerging technology to make their own world a better place.

Our no-code platform for environmental engagement helps communities advocate for policy changes, nonprofits assess environmental conditions, cities maintain green infrastructure, and citizens become more involved.

We’re building software that helps people measure, share, and grow their sustainability efforts—and we want you to help! Here’s some things we’re excited about:

  • Our customers are building a wide range of environmental monitoring applications, from tracking soil moisture in city tree beds to assessing pH levels in octopus farms!
  • As reported by the New York Times, our platform helps people combine science, sensors, and community organizing to make where they live, work, and play greener. Regardless of background or experience, we provide all the tools needed to measure, engage, inform, and advocate to build more engaged communities, neighborhoods, and environments.
  • We partner with groups like the Waterfront Alliance, The Grid, and SWIM to lend our support for smarter, more resilient waterfronts and urban communities.
  • Our software comes pre-shipped in hardware development platforms for millions of devices from companies like Texas Instruments, Samsung, and Arduino.
  • Our software integrates with over 100 internal and external APIs and cloud services, and we work closely with API providers such as Amazon and Microsoft to make their APIs more accessible.
  • Temboo has been adopted as a teaching tool by over 150 universities worldwide, in courses ranging from traditional CS and engineering, to digital art and urban data mining.

We’re looking for an imaginative and skillful engineering manager to join our team. You'll play a key role, both technically and culturally, in shaping how we build products. This role is unique in that you’ll get to contribute to core product features while working across teams, doing whatever is necessary to ship great software and establish an environment for your fellow engineers that fosters continuous learning and growth.

Your specific technical skill-set is less important to us than your all-around intelligence, problem-solving ability, and eagerness for new challenges.

What You'll Be Doing

  • Contributing to the management of the Temboo engineering team, mentoring and inspiring our engineers to do their best work
  • Representing the engineering team during planning and product design
  • Helping define and implement effective engineering processes
  • Architecting distributed systems with an eye on both immediate and future needs
  • Using your technical chops to contribute directly across the board, from new feature development to troubleshooting in production
  • Dedicating time to researching emerging technologies to help push the Temboo platform forward

What We're Looking For In You

  • Prior experience in an engineering management or lead role on a complex software product that people love
  • Proven ability to mentor and inspire engineers: you lead by example, by setting the right context, and by helping teammates do their best work
  • You’re a strong programmer with solid knowledge of computer science fundamentals
  • You have hands-on experience with architecting robust, scalable distributed systems
  • A willingness to learn and use new technologies, strategies and tools
  • Strong written and verbal skills, with an ability to explain complex concepts to a range of audiences
  • Bonus points for: experience with any Temboo-supported language, building scalable backend services, programmable hardware (e.g., Raspberry Pi) and a quick sense of humor; we also need a bass player, so let us know if you can jam!

Why You Should Apply

  • You’ll have a high-impact role working with transformative emerging technologies
  • You'll work on exciting technical challenges like designing secure, optimized protocols for communicating with internet-connected hardware, iterating on our data models and supporting architecture to scale to masses of connected devices, and implementing predictive algorithms for generating insights on sensor data sets
  • You’ll be building software that people use to make a positive impact on the world
  • You’ll get wide-ranging exposure to different aspects of the technology and business worlds since Temboo touches hardware & software, multiple layers of the technology stack, and a variety of industries
  • You’ll be part of a committed, smart, kind, and thoughtful team
  • We offer competitive compensation, a casual work environment, and respect for autonomy
  • Our users are our customers, and they control their own data. We're not selling ads or user data.
