IoT Engineer

Contract Position

Role

Seeking only the best IoT engineers to develop products for one of the coolest tech / sports / entertainment companies EVER! We are developing unique IoT, gaming and AI technology to transform one of the oldest forms of sports-entertainment to bring it into the 21st century and make it a destination experience. Think K1 Speed or Topgolf, but in a completely different area of sports & recreation. To be clear, we are not AR or AV; we are amplifying the fun, skill-building and enjoyment of a particular form of live-action sports-entertainment with advanced gamification and special effects technology.

About Us

We are a technology-rich company with multiple patent filings in 14 major areas of tech ranging from sensors, signal processing, networking, user interaction, systems and more. Our team comes from some of the world’s best tech companies including Google, Microsoft, Salesforce, GE, Disney and more.

Our products fall into two categories:

  • Connected Smart Devices
  • Connected Digital Services

Connected Devices are all of the physical products including our proprietary products specific to our sport, custom-designed user/gamer wearables, and third-party systems for lighting and special effects. All Connected Devices are hard real-time with critical events times sub-5 milliseconds. Connected Devices are continuously networked with the Level Up Live central, cloud-based Connected Services. Our products are based on Arduino controllers, specifically the SAMD Cortex and ESP32 families of devices.

Connected Services are all of the software elements of the Level Up Live system including user management, games, levels, achievements and more. Our Digital Services enable and promote our users to create teams, clans and leagues to compete, share progress and interact. Connected Digital Services include an electronic payments service to allow users to purchase games, tokens, memberships, merchandise, guest passes and more.

Requirements

We are seeking a computer or electrical engineering with significant Arduino design expertise:

  • Design and layout of integrated controllers that incorporate our existing boards, shields, feathers and wings into a single board or boards.
  • Cable and connector engineering for a high-stress, high-load environment.
  • Development of OTA firmware update capabilities for all Connected Devices.
  • Improvement of network device management, security, performance, etc.
  • Working with fab houses to get boards made and tested.
  • All of the usual electronic product engineering tasks including packaging, power, agency approvals, etc.
  • Some industrial design to package all of the electronic components to protect them from the environment, shock, etc.
  • Working closely with our game developers on our game sequencer, which orchestrates all of the physical elements of our system with game play.

Skills and background:

  • BS or MS in computer engineering or electrical engineering.
  • Transducer interfacing, specifically accelerometers and strain gages.
  • Advanced signal processing of transducer data.
  • Board design and layout, especially Arduino reference designs around the Cortex M0 and M4 family of devices, as well as the ESP32 family of devices.
  • Software development for real-time data processing, sensing, networking and control.
  • Expertise with Arduino-based software development including IP networking, web server and client, WebSocket, device management, JSON, control systems, etc.
  • C, C++ software development in an embedded systems environment, which means very efficient code, use of memory, speed/performance and hard real-time.
  • Expertise with the Arduino IDE including the ability to configure compile-time variables to be set/selectable from the IDE.
  • As a plus, expertise with gaming systems that incorporate physical devices including sequencing, events, timers, progress, and so forth.
  • Plus-plus if you have experience and expertise with writing patents and supporting the patent process.

The Company is well funded and has strategic partnerships with the leading companies in our space, in tech and hospitality. All of our team members, partners, advisors and investors are big fans of the sport we are transforming, so that is a hard requirement for anyone who joins our team. For the right person, this is a dream job – tech, sports and entertainment all in one.

If you are a top computer/electrical engineer looking for far more challenge and far more fun in your career, we invite you to contact us.

SOME ON-SITE WORK REQUIRED

We believe in the flexibility of remote work. However this role will require some physical access to our R&D facilities in the Seattle and greater area.
