Hardware Engineer

New York, United States Full-time

About Oden:

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, there’s a staggering opportunity for efficiency and production leaps. Oden is driving this revolution. We’re on a mission to eliminate waste in manufacturing.

We have combined industrial hardware, wireless connectivity, and big data architecture into one simple platform so all manufacturers can analyze and optimize their production, from any device. Efficiency, sustainability, and competitiveness are democratized.

Why We Do It:

We like to enable those who make things - to make more, to waste less, to serve their customers, and to thrive in a competitive world. Help enough makers, and the world can give us all the abundance we want for less cost and environmental impact. We’re on the verge of a 4th industrial revolution that begs for absolute efficiency in all factors of life. We plan to deliver that to everyone who makes things.


  • Are never satisfied with the way things are, but excited about the way things could be.
  • Tinker. You embrace different technologies and want to see how they can work together.
  • Are happy to put on steel toe boots and hit the factory floor to work with the production manager.
  • Empathize with customer needs while also looking towards long-term innovation.
  • Live by transparent and scientific thinking. You put in the work to find the best ideas with those around you, without ego.

The Role:

As an Engineer on the Hardware Team you will be responsible for writing code that pulls data from industrial machines and monitoring devices in the field. You will come up with test plans and implement them in our lab. Any future development of the QA lab will be a part of your tasking, with the purpose of improving, testing, and validating upcoming device features. This is a crucial role for Oden, and requires someone who will uphold the highest standards of quality, accountability, and attention to detail.

Responsibilities Include But Not Limited To:

  • Write critical code that pulls data from our remote devices and troubleshoot issues
  • Test end to end, verify new devices, features, and machine protocols in the lab or in a virtual environment before deploying to the client
  • Work closely with deployment team to gather requirements and feedback for the next iteration of tools and features that go into our hardware
  • Work with industrial automation hardware, PLCs, sensors, HMIs and related protocols
  • Enforce best practice of coding and testing standards
  • Take part in code reviews
  • Be part of a growing team and participate in group discussion on technical topics ranging from embedded devices to visualizations


  • Strong demonstrated CS fundamentals with experience writing code in one or more languages such as Python, Go, C and/or similar
  • Testing and debugging experience, both in the lab and on site
  • Ability to write up documentation and set up procedures
  • Able to write tests, set up automation environments to simulate a full data path from device to platform


  • Experience with PLCs and industrial protocols such as Modbus, Ethernet/IP, PROFINET, etc
  • Knowledge of the Linux kernel, drivers, boot loader, build tools
  • Experience with networks, troubleshooting and relevant toolchains
  • Familiar with single board computer devices such as the Raspberry Pi
  • Prior experience testing hardware


What We Offer You:

  • Measurable impact to the world. You have the chance to help actual people - family businesses, entrepreneurs, engineers - that will also result in improvements for many.
  • Exposure to many tech disciplines, most of which are rapidly evolving.
  • A bridge between the physical and cloud worlds of tech. Our platform unites big data visualizations with sensors, M2M tech, and heavy industrial equipment.
  • A platform that has the potential to evolve beyond what we have envisioned now.
  • Scientific and transparent thinking, for everyone involved.
  • We have backing by world leaders of both industry and tech that will ensure long term growth and development for us.
