We are transforming the way people connect to physical places, their family and community via the most consumer friendly IoT device.
Hi, we’re Canary… a New York City based startup that is transforming the way people connect to physical places, their family, and their community. We’re building the most consumer friendly “Internet of Things” device that has already won awards and is the most successful crowdfunded product on Indiegogo. We are building a platform that will scale to process more real time video, audio and sensor data than any consumer product on the market. This is a massive real-time data problem that will change the way people connect to physical places.
You’ll be tasked with processing, storing and scaling one the fastest growing real time datasets of any physical product on the market. You will be responsible for designing and building our backend APIs and data processing pipeline. This is an incredibly important role as we scale our platform to hundreds of thousands of devices in the next 12 months.
There are a lot of “smart home” companies out there trying to “connect” things - dishwashers, lights, fridges, TVs, crock-pots, etc. At Canary we prefer to solve problems.
We started with home security because it’s a need shared by hundreds of millions of people around the globe. We know because we’ve already sold Canary in 78 countries, and proved through our Indiegogo campaign (the most successful ever) that there’s a real demand for affordable intelligent home security. Rather than just preventing the bad (including burglaries, fires and nosy landlords), Canary also helps out in other ways whether it’s letting users watch their kids play during the middle of the day or providing a digital neighborhood watch while they’re on vacation.
The goal for our first product is to make a security device that people want to interact with on a daily basis. We're looking for awesome people who love toppling giants, working autonomously in small teams, solving challenging problems, and developing solutions for actual people.
