Software Engineer (Frontend)
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.
Software engineers working on the frontend primarily help design, build, and deploy our next-generation factory analytics platform. This includes working on both our React SPAs and Node servers, as well as backing APIs. We're a small but highly skilled software engineering team, where your contributions will have a big impact on the success of the company. You will work across the full stack, but the main focus will be on building modern web applications.
Frontend engineers care deeply about our users and the tools we build to help them solve problems - to make more, to waste less, to serve their customers, and to thrive in a competitive world. They write clean and testable code, but more importantly they work closely with the business, product team, and fellow engineers to plan features, create specifications, and estimate effort. We are a highly collaborative engineering team with an emphasis on peer review: nothing is exempt from scientific questioning.

It doesn’t matter what industries and languages you have experience in, but it does matter that you’re motivated to learn. At Oden we’re reimagining the role of data in manufacturing and we’re passionate about using the best tool for the job. Right now we use:
- React and MobX for view and state
GraphQL, REST, and SSE for data retrieval and streaming
Highcharts for data visualization
