Join Hammerhead! We’re a tech startup, building the software platform for the sport of cycling. At present we are focused on building the Karoo, the world’s best bicycle computer. We are a team of athletes, creators, and doers who get to spend our time building the finest product in our category, for the sport we love. The Hammerhead Karoo shipped in March of 2018 and is used by thousands of customers in 32 countries worldwide. This is an exciting time to come aboard, and we are now seeking an experienced software engineer to grow out our software development team near Malvern, PA.
This position reports to the head of software and operates as a member of a cross-functional Agile development team in a mixed hardware and software environment. The Karoo cycling computer runs on a customized Android platform so the bulk of the work we do is with Android applications, frameworks, and platform. The product does also include cloud-deployed componentry for moving routes and other information to the cycling computer. Ideally, the candidate has experience in cycling or with components related to the product such as mapping, routing, and wireless sensor integration.
We are not here to take part in our category, we are here to take it over. We are working on applying some of the most interesting technology to some of the most exciting applications. We’ve built a strong team from around the world. We have extremely ambitious goals for the future as well as the team to seize them. You must bring enthusiasm, aggression, and the determination to succeed, excited by the prospect of working hard, in the full confidence that your colleagues are too.
We do not believe in work/life balance. It’s all life, and it is short. We believe in spending it doing something meaningful, with people you admire, enjoy, and respect. Our culture is defined by the things that we do right, when it would be easier to do them wrong. You must be willing to admit your own mistakes, develop a plan to overcome them, and blame no one else. You must set this example for the team that you directly lead and grow.
