Role Description

Company description

Want to save lives and make cities more resilient? At Safehub, we are reshaping catastrophe risk and resilience from individual buildings to portfolios. Through our SaaS/IoT solution, we provide real-time building-specific earthquake damage information to customers globally. In March 2021, Safehub raised a series A round from Silicon Valley’s top early-stage funds and investors. We have excellent traction, having developed our core product, and are working with fantastic early-adopting customers. Yet we’re still small enough to offer the ground-floor benefits of a venture-backed startup, including significant career growth and financial upside potential. You will join a strong team from diverse backgrounds, including PhDs and founders who have built previous companies in this domain. For more information, see www.safehub.io.

Safehub is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.

What we’re looking for

Experience

  • 3+ years of experience in the web industry
  • Experience with Ruby or Python backend infrastructures
  • Experience in IoT is preferable
  • Willing to gain knowledge in earthquake engineering, digital signal processing and sensor design
  • Be able to confidently understand classical mechanics concepts
