The systems team at eero develops the critical software platform that brings eero products to life and supports application development. Team members work across the organization, creating the APIs, system services on eero devices. There are opportunities to work in kernel and device driver development or to focus on higher level software development. The team is small, values open discussion and curiosity, encourages people to ask questions about how things work, and collaborates on all aspects of the product. This is a fantastic opportunity to have a significant impact on all aspects of the product while working to build a world-class company that embodies great design, attention to detail, technological innovation, and quality.

At eero we believe the foundation of home technology has been broken for far too long. After years of slowly waving laptops around in hopes of a better signal, we couldn't wait any longer. So in 2014, we assembled a team of the brightest engineers and designers with a singular goal: never worry about WiFi again. And that's what we've done. eero is easy to setup, blankets your home with WiFi, and intelligently adapts to your home and devices for max performance. But it does not stop there. Imagine if everything from home automation to health monitoring could tap into the connectivity, context, and intelligence provided by an eero system. Not everything has to be smart, as long as it's connected to something that is.
We also offer competitive benefits like full medical, dental, and vision coverage, on-site lunches, unlimited and flexible PTO, nine weeks of parental leave, short-term and long-term disability, and contribution towards commute and parking.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
