Viam is building a new platform to make robotics more approachable to engineers of all backgrounds, empowering thousands of startups to achieve their robotic visions. We're taking on the hard software challenges, enabling engineers to build modular, practical robots efficiently and cost effectively. We're working on integrating hardware and software in new ways, giving engineers much greater abilities to accomplish their goals. At the same time, we're trying to increase the pace of innovation by bringing costs down tremendously.

Viam's products are built by engineers, for engineers. We want to build a platform we would want to use ourselves.

As a frontend engineer on our Fleet Management team, you will be responsible for building our innovative web applications, with a desire to achieve exceptional usability, accessibility and performance.

The Fleet Management team is responsible for cloud-based functionality to enable remote configuration, control, management, and operation of a fleet of robots. Configuring one robot manually in a lab is one thing, but managing a fleet of 1000s of robots in the wild is what this product is for. The team is also responsible for building the foundation of the cloud management web site that will allow us to add richer features in the future. 

You'll be:

  • Working with frontend technologies such as ES.Next, Typescript, Vue.js, webpack to solve new and unique problems in robotics and cloud computing
  • Defining the initial architecture of our frontend
  • Solving challenges across the stack
  • Building out a multi-tenant cloud service for users to manage their robots
  • Using state-of-the-art technologies that best tackle our problems at hand

We're looking for someone who:

  • Has 3+ years of professional software development experience
  • Has an affinity towards frontend engineering yet is comfortable across the stack 
  • Is opinionated on the design and implementation of interfaces both visual and programmatic
  • Wants to make our users lives easier through making their work more efficient
  • Is excited to approach new technologies and open-ended problems
  • Believes in high-quality, tested, and well documented code

Preferred, but not critical qualifications:

  • Good working knowledge of ES.Next, TypeScript, Vue.js, Webpack or similar bundlers
  • Modern web development experience
  • Experience deploying applications in one of the major cloud providers

Benefits:

  • 100% covered medical/dental/vision insurance plans

Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
