What you will do
A few years back, after experiencing friction in preparing devices for the IoT world, we launched Etcher, an open-source software designed to flash data to drives or devices efficiently and flawlessly. Etcher is now a market leader and EtcherPro is its hardware extension, aiming to automate and accelerate the flashing process of IoT devices in production at scale.
As a Product Engineer joining the team, you will collaborate with others to build, maintain and expand Etcher. Your first few weeks will be spent asking lots of questions, reading code and documentation, and absorbing context. As you develop a deep understanding of our interdependent systems and how we work, you will be empowered to identify product improvements, communicate proposals, see new features throughout the entire lifecycle, and build cross-platform capabilities. You will act as a product visionary and a full-stack engineer and your mission will be to remove friction for Etcher users.
Make sure to let us know if any of these items apply to you! If possible, please also share a sample of your work or examples of projects (URL or attachment).
Who we are
Balena is a highly distributed company that has embraced a remote-first approach since 2013. We are a group of individuals from across the globe working together to achieve our mission: “reduce friction for fleet owners and unlock the power of physical computing”.
For us, this means removing the barriers to entry for developing IoT products, whether that’s easing software deployments with balenaCloud, simplifying image flashing with balenaEtcher, or offering our own hardware based on our experience seeing thousands of devices running in production. We are developing an end-to-end solution that makes it easy for developers to build applications at the Edge.
