Software Engineer (Backend)

Location: Malmö, Sweden

We are building a smart home alarm and monitoring device that will change the way people approach the health & security of their home.

We are creating a product with the ambition that millions of people will use it to understand what’s going on inside their homes — allowing them to improve their safety today and catch any small issues before they become big issues.

We are trying to create a truly personalised product for each customer. That means delivering tailored insights and advice to each person based on their own situation and needs — whether that’s protecting their home from intruders & fire, or ensuring it’s an environmentally safe place to raise a family. All technology, from our custom hardware to the neural nets powering insights to user apps, is developed in-house which gives you a unique opportunity to interact and learn from people with a broad range of backgrounds.

Four years ago, it was just the 4 founders – and we’re now a team of 25 across 3 offices with hugely ambitious plans. As a consequence, every single member of the team works on high impact and groundbreaking challenges. Our organisation is flat and lean where everyone talks to everyone. This allows us to be quick and work on what matters.

As a software engineer on the backend team, you will be responsible for everything from development and testing to architecture and operations.
