Seattle, WA, USA
Posted on Friday, June 7, 2024

Electric Era was founded to revolutionize the world's electric vehicle charging infrastructure. We have developed PowerNode, a high performance and autonomous EV fast charging station that can be deployed anywhere on the grid to provide the necessary charging infrastructure needed for the affordable and timely electrification of transportation. Electric Era is building the future of car refill for the next generation of drivers. Come help build the future of car refill with our dynamic, energetic and passionate team in our beautiful offices overlooking the Seattle skyline.

The Role:

Electric Era’s software team redefines “full-stack” - we write everything from low-level firmware to cloud-hosted backend software to factory test infrastructure to artificial intelligence and simulation tooling. We believe in first-principles engineering with rapid iteration towards success.

You will have the opportunity to join us in this mission, take ownership in part of the open-ended problem of EV charging infrastructure, and execute the creation of end-to-end test infrastructure that will level up the industry’s definition of “highly reliable fast charging”. Your contributions will be critical to the long-term success of the company in making EV fast charging ubiquitous and affordable.

Responsibilities:

  • You will own end-to-end development and operation of our entire test infrastructure, leveraging both hardware out-of-the-loop (HOOTL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HITL) systems
  • You will source requirements cross-functionally to produce optimal first principles designs and will present and defend those design decisions
  • You will develop and maintain continuous integration in production to achieve best-in-class operational reliability of PowerNode
  • You will collaborate with our external vendors and partner to ensure we can maintain our software and hardware interfaces and adequately test for regressions in our product line
  • You will be responsible for preventing regression of Electric Era’s software products through their entire product and development lifecycle
  • You will mentor and educate other engineers to continuously elevate the Electric Era engineering team’s technical acumen

Qualifications & Preferred Skills:

  • 2-7 years of experience in software development
  • Track record of delivering test software infrastructure in products involving hardware and external parties
  • Experience in mission- and safety-critical test software development for hardware
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or related field
  • Demonstrated track record showcasing end-to-end ownership of business-critical software products through a production lifecycle
  • Development experience in C, C++, Python, Golang, or TypeScript
  • Capability to support operations on-call rotations as needed
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
