We are on the brink of the next industrial revolution.
Manufacturing has long been an analog world, but this is about to change. By introducing machines to the digital world, theres a staggering opportunity for efficiency & production leaps. Oden is driving this revolution. Were on a mission to eliminate waste in manufacturing.
We have combined industrial hardware, wireless connectivity, & modern cloud architecture into one simple platform so all manufacturers can analyze & optimize their production, from any device. Efficiency, sustainability, & competitiveness are democratized.
Software Engineers on the Backend team build features to enable a widening array of analytical tasks against manufacturing data. Some of the questions we explore are:
- How do we compress the complexity of a factory into a single statistic so that an operations manager in Greece can understand a factorys overall health in real-time or over historical intervals?
- How do we build partition tolerant services that run both on premise & in the cloud?
- How do we help an operator in Ohio maximize production while maximizing safety & minimizing waste?
Software Engineers are self-starters & team players, & during the product development lifecycle they collaborate closely with customer success, product, design, frontend, & data science to design the best solution. We believe that the best way to understand the needs of our users is to stand in their shoes, so occasionally well tour factories & engage face-to-face. This position comes with steel toe boots.
It doesnt matter what industries & languages you have experience in, but it does matter that youre motivated to learn. At Oden were always expanding into new manufacturing verticals, & were passionate about using the best tool for the job. Right now we use:
- Go (primarily), Java, & Python
- SQL & NoSQL databases for time-series & manufacturing data
- Open-source cloud infrastructure tools such as Kubernetes, Apache Beam, & Apache Airflow, deployed in GCP & on-prem
