Electrical & Firmware Engineer

About us:

We are creating the world’s first textile computing platform. We’re integrating technology directly into one of the few things we have contact with our entire lives - textiles. Our textiles are wearable, washable, will charge wirelessly and will be loaded with invisible technology, resulting in zero habit change. The sensors and actuators embedded within our clothing create what we call Digital Identity, creating a true interface between the humans and other humans, tools, IoT and the environment. Myant will enable your digital identity to be consumed by yourself, your doctor, coach, other IoT devices, your family members, etc.

We’re looking for people who believe in our mission to make wearable technology truly ubiquitous and convenient, so that everyone can benefit from it. We are a cross-functional team solving big challenges at the intersection of fashion, electronics, software, and data science.

We design, develop and manufacture clothes that can transition from simple to smart, from dark to light, from cold to heated.

We live, design, fit and test in Toronto Canada.We are committed to a culture of transformational development. We are more than just a technically functional textile and emerging technology company – we are revolutionizing the garment and textile industry..
