Engineering Lead - Remote

Denver, CO
Do you have a passion for leading engineering teams that develop cutting edge Voice and Mobile technologies? Do you enjoy working within a collaborative and entrepreneurial environment? We are a remote first voice technology startup and have an exciting opportunity for a highly productive
systems architect to lead the development of Native Voice’s software.

Native Voice connects brands' voice services (e.g., Hey iHeart, Alexa, etc.) directly with consumers via an SDK and multi-wake word support on audio hardware devices. As voice becomes the fastest adopted technology in human history, a software access point is now required on every audio device to enable access to a rapidly growing number of voice services - “Alexa” “Hey Google” and quickly emerging new services including “Hey iHeart” “Hey TuneIn” “Hey NPR” etc. We are set to launch with multiple major brands and our first tier 1 audio partner Skullcandy.
