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 a curious, skillful engineer to employ machine learning techniques to develop new features and products at Temboo. You will be responsible for leveraging and advancing existing machine learning systems as you apply them to Temboo’s increasingly rich sensor data and device activity dataset. You will lead the design, prototyping and productization of machine learning-based features, and take responsibility for introducing other Temboo developers to machine learning projects.

Your specific technical skill-set is less important to us than your all-around intelligence, problem-solving ability, and eagerness for new challenges. It will be your responsibility to identify and introduce new languages and tools to support your machine learning initiatives.

What You'll Be Doing

  • Identifying opportunities to apply machine learning techniques to develop new Temboo features, particularly those based on sequence mining
  • Working with other Temboo engineers to implement machine learning algorithms in an efficient manner
  • Shipping new features based on your research
  • Continually observing and refining these features in production to improve behavior over time
  • Taking responsibility for maintaining our data collection, storage and processing infrastructure

What We're Looking For In You

  • Proven experience with developing machine learning systems in a professional or academic environment
  • A deep understanding of the mathematical foundations of machine learning algorithms
  • Strong computer science fundamentals (notably algorithms and data structures, distributed systems and information retrieval)
  • Experience with relational database technology e.g., MySQL, and distributed data storage and processing systems e.g., Hadoop
  • You’re a strong programmer, with experience in both scripting languages and strongly typed programming languages
  • A willingness to learn and use new technologies, strategies, tools, and components
  • Strong written and verbal skills, with an ability to explain complex concepts to a varied audience
  • Experience in a startup environment

Why You Should Apply

  • You’ll have a high-impact role working with transformative technologies like IoT and Machine Learning
  • 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 writing 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, respectful, and fun team
  • We offer competitive compensation, a casual office environment, and respect for autonomy
  • Our users are our customers, and they control their own data. We're not selling ads or user data.
