Engineering at Sapient Industries

Engineering team and processes

The engineering team is currently grouped by system function — web, machine learning, infrastructure. We're all of a similar mind when it comes to process: minimize unnecessary ceremony and minimize reporting for reporting's sake. We use informal time-boxed iterations and as we grow will likely need to get a bit more formal to facilitate communication.

Technical Challenges

The amount of streaming sensor data we need to manage and monitor is very large. Individual per minute sensor readings need to be processed in near-real-time as well as batch processed to produce optimized queryable data sets.

Projects you might work on
  • Our machine learning subsystem automatically detects what type of device is plugged in to each of our smart outlets.

  • We infer asset and space utilization based on the usage patterns of the deployed smart outlets.

  • Our massive fleet of IoT devices requires robust monitoring and telemetry.
