Renting a home is the world's oldest subscription service. People spend thousands of dollars every month for an experience that is outdated, inconvenient, analog, impersonal, and leaves a lot to be desired. Latch is working to make every building better, and while we've methodically executed this mission since our founding with great success, we're just getting started.
Leveraging our knowledge from companies like Apple, BCG, and IDEO, we’ve rethought how people interact with space. Latch delivers a full-building operating system designed to help owners, residents, and third parties like guests, couriers, and service providers, seamlessly experience the modern building. We’ve done this by combining software, devices, and services into a holistic platform that makes spaces more efficient, enjoyable, and profitable.
The next chapter of the Latch story will be our most exciting yet, and we’re looking for more talented team members to help fuel our growth.
Latch is seeking a Staff Reliability Engineer to act as an individual contributor and team lead to build and expand our failure analysis capabilities. This role will interact with several cross functional teams.
As a Reliability Engineer you will engage with an experienced cross-disciplinary staff to conceive and design infrastructure technologies. You will work closely with an internal interdisciplinary team, and outside partners to drive key aspects of root cause and failure analysis. You must be responsive, flexible, and able to succeed within an open collaborative peer environment. You will:
Be responsible for the failure analysis process and organization of cross functional efforts to address emerging issues. You will have a fundamental understanding of Reliability statistics, physics of failure and a solid understanding of system engineering to deep dive into failure modes. Lead identifying and quantifying risks and work with design teams to mitigate them. Define root cause methodologies to efficiently realize points of corrective action. Provide technical leadership and mentor engineers.
