  • Experience with Node.js
  • Experience with mobile app development (React Native, Expo experience is a plus)
  • Experience with developing data science models for predictive analytics
  • Experience with low level systems and PCB design

What the job involves

  • You will be working closely with fellow team members to plan, produce, test and deploy new full-stack features across our entire codebase
  • You will support the development of our product and back-end infrastructure as we scale across the UK and further afield (US & Germany)
  • You will have the opportunity to manage and scale the development of our suite of tools and implement new features and functionality which allows clients to install, better visualise and manage their sensor fleets
  • You will develop APIs, data models, visualisations, and analytics for flood warnings and predictive alerts - allowing clients to take a proactive approach to flood management
  • You will help test, automate, and optimise our existing workflows
  • You will develop efficient algorithms and APIs that enhance and optimise our device firmware and the IoT backend infrastructure that supports the cross stack interactions (app-device, device-backend, backend-dashboard)
  • You will balance speed and quality, with a focus on tangible results as you work across multiple tech stacks (often in parallel)
  • You will work shoulder to shoulder with the CTO and engineering team to help us scale fast in a robust manner while contributing to the system level design and end-end architecture discussions

Otta's take

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

As the effects of climate change intensify, the frequency of flooding events is increasing. However, major infrastructures are currently grappling with a reactive approach, mainly due to the scale of their networks and the absence of adequate sensing technology and analytics. This approach proves to be expensive and environmentally harmful. Recognising these challenges, ManholeMetrics wants to address these issues and provide an effective solution to mitigate the impact of flooding.

ManholeMetrics provides cost-effective, long-lasting sensors that are designed to monitor wastewater levels. These sensors are accompanied by real-time and predictive alert systems, allowing infrastructure operators to take a proactive approach to flood management. Through this proactive approach, ManholeMetrics enables the creation of calibrated models and facilitates optimised data-driven decision-making for more effective flood prevention and response.

ManholeMetrics has received support from Yorkshire Water, Thames Water, and National Highways. This support not only serves as a testament to the credibility of ManholeMetrics' technology, but also propels the company closer to achieving its ambitious goal of ending flooding.
