What is Patch:
Patch is a new company that’s bringing a new kind of communication device to market. This is the absolute ground floor of a company that’s positioned to become a household name.
Patch is a device and suite of services that facilitates a new communication channel between you and the people you care about the most. The end user experience is unlike anything that has existed before and the potential market is enormous.
In late 2016 we refined the concept, built and tested prototypes, and received backing from a Boulder based fund. The founder is working from a background in engineering and design at IDEO and a subsequent successful consumer goods startup.
This position is full-time and located in Boulder, CO. The applicant will be joining a small team creating a connected device and surrounding software service from scratch. There are a lot of hats to be worn.
The candidate should be ready to work in a very dynamic position and tackle a variety of tasks. A depth in firmware is essential, but the candidate also needs to be able to roll up their sleeves to do what it takes to bring the device to market.
The ideal candidate will have depth in firmware development with interest and experience in the surrounding disciplines. The candidate should be able to work across firmware and app development. They should love to make stuff while also being able to manage the software development team and partners that it will take to get the device to market. It’s a lot to ask.
The candidate should also have direct experience creating hardware from the ground up. Examples of hardware developed and the role the applicant played in the development will be a key point of focus.
