At Myant, we are creating the world’s first textile computing platform, integrating technology directly into the only thing we’ve been wearing our entire life – our clothing. The sensors and actuators embedded within our apparel create your Digital Identity, which can be shared with those who matter to you - your doctors, coaches, other IoT devices, your family members - without you consciously having to think about it. Imagine a world where you walk into your house and the temperature automatically adjusts to suit you, or the lights adjust to your mood, or your doctor is aware of the onset of a disease before you even visit. The line between the digital and physical world is becoming increasingly blurry, and we believe textile is the next medium to bridge that gap.
Myant is 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 are seeking a highly motivated and versatile Firmware Engineer to join our small but growing team. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to bring multiple products from early prototyping to mass production, creating a portfolio of next generation wearable products.
To be successful, the candidate must have a strong background in programming embedded systems and experience with implementing algorithms that are optimized for embedded systems. Applicants should have a keen eye for solving problems that currently do not have well defined solutions and be able to rapidly design/prototype these ideas. He or she will work with limited supervision and will be accountable for the delivery and critical appraisal of their results.
The successful candidate will join a multi-disciplinary team of scientists, engineers, textile experts, fashion designers and entrepreneurs to actively participate in the creation and optimization of new products.
