SmartHalo is looking for a Firmware Developer

Start date : when we find the right person

About us: At SmartHalo, we believe that cycling is the future of urban transport. It’s the solution to the pains of city life: pollution, congestion and overloaded public transit.  Using a savvy mix of cutting-edge technology and minimalist design, we’re encouraging people to choose their bikes.

We’re a team of creators: engineers, designers, business and sales people. We’re a passionate, hardworking bunch. Our offices are at the center of the universe (Montreal’s Mile-End). In 2015, we took Kickstarter by storm with an award-winning circular interface that resonated with cyclists all over the world. Now, we’ve shipped over 15,000 units in 72 countries and are the only Canadian hardware product sold at the Apple Store. But the best is yet to come: we’ve only scratched the surface and we want to bring SmartHalo to every cyclist.

About you: We are looking for a technology creator to help build the software that powers our hardware. Our goal is to create amazing products and the firmware is a essential piece as it is the interface between our mobile apps and the device that people use.
