Palo Alto, CA --- Full Times & Paid Internships --- H1B OK, Relocation Friendly, Full Benefits.

After spending almost a decade working for Steve Jobs, Tony Fadell, the iPod Godfather, decided it was time to think of the home beyond a mere shelter. Last year, Nest established the first corner stone of this vision by releasing its first learning Thermostats; recently, Nest delivered again by introducing the second version of the Thermostat, which was lauded by the New York Times as “gorgeous, elegant, and very, very smart.” [1]

To deliver on the vision of bringing Apple-like discipline to home automation, we are currently looking for motivated individuals with any of the following skill sets:

-Mobile Developer: iOS or Android

-Frontend developers: our frontend stack is in Django, and we’re also using Amber.js, Backbone.js, and more.

-Backend Developers: our stack is in Scala, and we’re more than happy to teach you horizontal/vertical scaling.

-Algorithm & Machine Learning Experts: the thermostats provide tons of data we use to help people save energy.

-EE people in Networking, System Integration, Firmware...etc

We’re still a pretty small team but we’ve got big ambitions and are already having a tangible impact (wait ‘til you see our energy saving numbers). If you want to come change the world with us, please feel free to send us a note at jose@nestlabs.com (or reply to this thread).

When you say paid internships, do you mean for next summer? Your company sounds wonderfully exciting, but over here the Winter Semester just started and I have yet to pin down whether I'll be expected to stay around for summer here at grad school or what.
