We work at the crossroad of the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, and cloud computing to build a seamless fabric that interconnects all types of devices and systems in what we call the “Sensor Web”. Our solution is based on open standards and open source software, with the aim to improve how things get done in many sectors such as emergency response, smart cities, environmental monitoring, intelligence, and defense. We are a small but growing team where every member is vital.

Positions are preferably full-time and based in Madison/Huntsville, Alabama, with flexible schedule and the possibility to work from home, if desired. Attractive salary. Junior and Senior-level programmers considered.
Will be working with testbed development activities in support of GeoHuntsville and federal agency needs, to include sensor deployment and development of sensor drivers, tools, and geospatial clients.
