Senior Software Engineer II, Core Platform - Remote (USA)

SmartRent is made up of passionate, diverse, and innovative professionals who enjoy working together. We are on a mission to make smart home technology accessible for everyone by embracing our shared guiding principles. We don’t take shortcuts; we do the hard work. We own our outcomes. We win as a team. We value authenticity and others’ perspectives. We believe solving problems starts before we write any code.

We are leading the way for smart technology for housing, particularly multifamily apartment complexes and single-family rentals. It’s a really fun intersection of physical hardware, such as locks and thermostats, and software that can control the devices; we provide applications for both the property staff — whether single-family or multifamily and also the residents of the properties. We started in 2017 and have had explosive growth ever since — going public in 2021 for $2.2b. We have deployed over 300,000 units that contain over one million IoT devices and ingest billions of events from those devices in a given month.
