Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: US only

Category: Software Dev


To our future Senior Embedded Engineer
At Density, we build one of the most advanced people sensing systems in the world. The product and infrastructure is nuanced and one-of-a-kind. Building this product for scale has been an exercise in patience, creativity, remarkable engineering, laser physics, global logistics, and grit. The team is thoughtful, driven, and world-class.


Why this is an important role
Last week our DPUs detected a million humans walking through doors. A number that increases every week.

As engineers, we think it's pretty cool to be capturing events at this volume. Especially when it's done anonymously, accurately, and in real-time. Although counting people is a DPU's top priority, it needs to do so much more.

Our system must efficiently and reliably:
- Receive and process improvements through command and control functionality
- Seamlessly interact with our network of partner products (building automation and security integrations)
- Push diagnostic data to allow remote monitoring and troubleshooting.

Our DPU has a growing set of responsibilities. We need an experienced hand to help us imagine, build, and maintain these mission critical systems and functionalities. Are you up for the job?

This role reports to our Director of Software Engineering.


Requirements:

  • Deep understanding of modern C++
  • Exceptional comfort with networking, specifically in enterprise environments (this is big for us)
  • Strong experience with the Linux system level APIs, placing an emphasis on designing AsyncIO/event loop based embedded user space daemons.
  • Experience integrating with custom hardware via standard Linux interfaces.
  • Strong understanding of TLS based communication (ideally using OpenSSL).
  • Experience interfacing with large scale cloud based backends.
  • Experience with an embedded Linux build system (Yocto, Buildroot, Linux from Scratch)


  • Bonus Points for:

  • Computer Vision
  • Machine learning and machine learning hardware
  • Experience with building automation. Specifically Bacnet protocol.
  • Python 3 AsyncIO
  • AWS lambda
  • Nomad/Terraform
  • ZMQ
  • Kafka
  • BLE
  • 802.11 
  • CDP or LLDP
While we have offices in Syracuse (NY), San Francisco, and NYC, we embrace and have built a culture around remote work.

    Job Opening: Backend Platform Engineer

    We’re looking for someone to join our Platform Engineering team at Ferrum. Are you interested in building services to help hospitals detect and eliminate the millions of medical errors that occur every year? If so, read on.


    About You

    You have experience solving challenges with microservices and scaling systems securely. You are comfortable building robust applications with Go or similar languages, Docker, PostgreSQL, Linux, and more in complex systems. Your significant experience interacting with and developing APIs provides a framework for creating both internal and external facing endpoints. 

    You love efficiency and automation. Your work at Ferrum will have a huge impact on the business. You understand that automation and infrastructure pays dividends. You take pride in creating tools to help the team perform at a high level and scale to new challenges.

    You communicate and document everything. At Ferrum, we are a distributed remote team. A culture of sharing and documentation allows everyone to seamlessly work together. Further, for FDA and other healthcare regulatory approvals our documentation of development, testing, and validation must be airtight. 

    You take ownership of a project from ideation to delivery and maintenance. Your experience provides a framework for you to work independently on multiple initiatives as both the end-to-end owner and as a contributor to features. You take pride in creating services that are easy to debug and maintain.

    You want to make a positive and lasting impact on the world. You understand that technology has the power to improve people’s lives and enrich our society. You see the inequality in your own community and around the world and you look to change it. 


    What You Will Do

    Ferrum is a distributed, fast-growing company so you will be wearing many hats and pitch in on different components and projects across the organization. That said, here are some examples of what you’ll do:

    • Scale up the platform and integrations between machine learning algorithms and the pipeline

    • Design and build the APIs interfacing the data pipeline and machine learning services

    • Building security tools to protect sensitive patient data throughout the data pipeline

    • Optimize bare-metal appliances to meet the high performance needs of the application

    • Provision infrastructure for the secure services coordinating on-premise and cloud-hosted services


    About Ferrum

    Medical errors kill 6 million patients every year and are the third leading cause of death worldwide. Ferrum provides doctors with an automated quality management system and machine learning marketplace that ensures they catch and fix medical errors before they affect patient care. The service does not affect physician workflow, takes less than a day to install, and is delivered via a secure appliance so patient data never leaves the hospital. Ferrum has been deployed at hospitals in multiple countries around the world. We are a highly technical team led by experienced founders who have built, funded, and scaled successful healthcare technology companies previously. 

    Salary: $95,000
