[JOB] Systems Engineer, GoTenna

About the company:
goTenna is a Williamsburg, Brooklyn ­based startup building products that enable completely decentralized
communication. We’re starting with an eponymous device that, paired with your smartphone, lets you
communicate with friends even when you have no cell or data service. goTenna aims to become a part of
everyone’s technology essentials, reducing our reliance on cell towers and wi­fi routers, and providing users the
ability to create a network on their terms, anywhere in the world, free from charges or fees. We care a ton about
what we’re building — from both philosophical and technological perspectives — and our team is a scrappy group
(6 FT + 2 interns), armed with a seed round of venture capital from some really nice folks (incl. Collaborative Fund,
Bloomberg Beta, A16Z, Brooklyn Bridge, MentorTech). Our office is stocked with snacks and friendly, smart people
who like teaching and learning from each other.

ground floor. Our timeline is fast (and fun), and that should suit you.

should have a track record in designing innovative solutions to unique wireless networking problems, particularly

wireless systems architecture for goTenna at the firmware level across a variety of products and devices.
Requirements & desired skills:
● Masters or higher in electrical engineering, with a focus in networking/communications
● 5+ years of experience solving and implementing networking solutions desired
● Experience in hardware desirable
● Experience with embedded system engineering strongly desired
