What does Tempo Automation do?

What if electronics manufacturing moved as fast as software development? At Tempo Automation, we're modernizing the way electronics are manufactured and we are looking for the most talented, creative and passionate people to join our team! We’re building a state-of-the-art software system that works in conjunction with an automated factory to allow our customers to go from a CAD design to a fully functioning circuit board in just 3 days.

What are we looking for?

Tempo Automation is currently looking for a Senior Full Stack Engineer to help design and implement new systems, like our factory software, our CAD analysis stack, and our ordering flow.

Why join us?

Solving a real pain point — Electrical engineers don't have the luxury of a tight feedback loop. While software engineers tweak their code, run it, and quickly see the results of those changes, electrical engineers usually wait several weeks to receive prototype boards and continue iterating on their designs. Tempo is fixing that. We know that high-quality circuit boards can be manufactured quickly; we do it every day! In order to continue to take on more complex customer designs, offer more powerful insights into those designs, build and design new factories, and make everything run smoother and faster, we are looking to hire the best of the best.

Big market and great growth — Every company in the world that produces electronics in any form stands to benefit from developing their products with Tempo. The market for electronics prototyping is roughly $230 billion; it contains everything from rocketry and automobiles to thermostats and industrial equipment.

Positive impact on the world — We will significantly accelerate the progress of multiple industries that affect billions of people every day. Looking for a leveraged way to help humanity and move technology as a whole forward? Here it is!

Must Have:

  • 3+ years of python experience
  • 3+ years experience with REACT, AWS and Postgres along with other tech.
  • Experience writing web applications (in python) that communicate with 3rd party API's
  • Familiarity with relational databases

Current technical challenges:

  • Offering real-time, automated manufacturing feedback based on certain parameters of our customers' designs. Think linting for hardware.
  • Optimizing our factory processes with statistics and scheduling algorithms.
  • Encoding the three-dimensional structure of each component (i.e. resistors, capacitors) that we place on customers' boards, to ensure minimal manufacturing defects.
  • Automated optical inspection faster than anyone in the industry.

Benefits

  • Unlimited vacation – We understand the importance of disconnecting and trust you to manage your time and get your work done. We offer salaried employees an open vacation policy.
  • Exceptional benefits package – We value healthy and happy employees. We offer a 401(k) and cover 100% of the premium for our competitive base health, dental, and vision package.

  • Weekly lunches and office snacks – We know nothing says thank you like free food. We offer a stocked snack drawer and free company-wide lunches to fuel the journey.
  • San Francisco office location – We offer a convenient San Francisco location. Don’t live in the city? We offer commuter benefits to help.
  • Transparent and social culture – We work better when we’re all on the same page. We have company-wide weekly meetings to review milestones and metrics, semi-annual off sites to discuss the broader vision, and biweekly socials.

Come help us accelerate the progress of companies developing rockets, drones, medical devices, and much more. We look forward to hearing from you!
