Who we are

About Seam

Seam is building a platform for software developers to connect and manage smart devices in buildings, like locks, thermostats, and intercoms. It provides a way for software applications, like Airbnb, Zillow, and WeWork, to easily interact with and control these devices across various brands and technologies, streamlining the process of building and scaling smart home and building applications.

Seam is backed by Tiger Global, Root VC, founders and execs at Stripe, Plaid, and Airbnb, and other amazing angels and funds.

About the team

The Seam Mobile SDK allows developers to build mobile applications that communicate with smart devices via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC. Our goal is to develop SDKs in various languages including Swift, Objective C, Kotlin, and Java. We also aim to create a code generation framework to produce SDKs and documentation snippets.

Seam was founded to make it easier for developers to automate the physical world. We are dedicated to providing a world class experience for developers using our API and SDKs. While we’ve solved a small part of that problem, our ambition is to go much further.

We are seeking an experienced Mobile Developer skilled in iOS or Android development. You should have a background in Mobile SDK development and BLE technology, and be comfortable with our Node.js, TypeScript, and PostgreSQL stack.

As the first dedicated mobile developer at our company, you will play a key role in designing our Mobile SDKs and mentoring our engineers in mobile development. You will work closely with our engineering team to improve developer productivity, streamline build processes, and enhance the overall developer experience.

We play with a lot of hardware and spend a lot of time thinking about developer UX. We like written communications. We prefer to keep things simple and don't overthink first implementations. You should generally be curious, comfortable with the unknown / experimentation, and be able to move fast.

As set forth in Seam’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected group status under any applicable law.

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection.

Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

Form CC-305
Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 04/30/2026

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
