Who are we?

Sealed is a climate tech company on a mission to stop home energy waste and electrify all homes.

Sealed designs, manages, and finances home weatherization and electrification projects, making it easy and affordable for people to be more comfortable while using less energy. Our proven holistic approach can reduce energy use by 50% and takes a home completely off of fossil fuels with upgrades like high-performance insulation, air sealing, and heat pump HVAC. Our expert team designs the right solution, matches top-rated local contractors, and manages the project start to finish. Sealed covers the upfront costs, and we’re accountable to impact: if we don’t cut energy waste, we don’t get paid.

Sealed is venture backed, based in New York City, and was featured as one of Inc. Magazine's 'Ventures that Embody the U.N.‘s Sustainability Goals'. Learn more at sealed.com.

What will you do?

As one of Sealed’s first full-time software engineers, you will have a unique opportunity to build world-class software for a Series B, Clean-tech, company. You will work with an exceptional team of product and engineering leaders to develop on top of a proven service-oriented architecture (GCP / Java).  We are creating exciting applications that make it easy for home owners to reduce energy waste, eliminate carbon emissions, and fully electrify. The software you create will allow Sealed to scale to millions of homes.

Your north star is creating a customer experience that can design and deliver a clean home renovation project with minimum human interaction. In order to meet this challenge, you will work closely with product managers, designers, and other business stakeholders to prioritize development and determine the best strategies to maximize business value. We work in an agile environment and we’ll look to you to creating sprints based on business and technical infrastructure needs.

What success looks like:

As a Staff Software Engineer, you build the right things in the right way. With ample opportunity to work independently, you also collaborate with your delivery team to come up with the appropriate engineering solutions. You act as a leader and are not afraid to engage other members of the team to clarify specifications and business goals. You build trust with your team through active listening and proactive communication.

Most importantly, by working diligently and collaboratively, you create results. Your applications move metrics, delight customers, and improve the quality of homes and the environment. 

You know that the pace of development accelerates with intelligent investments in infrastructure and documentation. You are a critical member of the Sealed Engineering department, which is a shining example of agile development best practices and empowering teams.
