#Back End Developer / #Cloud DevOps

Open Application Page

Position Description: 

Tether is a data driven startup that optimizes the charging patterns of Electric Vehicles parked throughout a city, aggregating them into the world's largest virtual battery that reinforces the stability of the power grid. We are looking for candidates with a background in Back End Development or Cloud Architecture Design that want to join a dynamic, early stage team.  

In order to achieve our goals, Tether envisions a cloud hosted algorithm that is connected to thousands or millions of distributed EV chargers in real time. Data needs to be collected, analyzed by our predictive models, fed into an optimization algorithm, and the output of the latter has to be displayed in real time to users and partners via our application. Long term storage is also necessary to maintain a variety of historical EV behavior. We are looking for Back End / Cloud developers or Cloud DevOps interested in building a client-server architecture for real time data acquisition and long term storage from the ground up.

We want candidates that are impact driven, looking for a dynamic and collaborative work environment, and are interested in helping to develop the optimization algorithm at the heart of the company.
