About The Role

The device platform team at rabbit builds low-level software running on our hardware prototypes. You will be working closely with our design, cloud, and hardware teams to bring our magical experiences to our devices.

Your day-to-day responsibilities will look like:
  • Customize our on-device operating system to meet our usage requirements, and perform various performance benchmarks and optimizations.
  • Implement UI and UX features for our hardware experience, including animations, text display, and interaction patterns, with guidance from our design team.
  • Integrate machine learning features such as speech recognition, speech synthesis, natural language processing, and computer vision into our operating system, either on-device or over-cloud.
  • Collaborate with our cloud team to co-implement and optimize communication protocols between our device and our cloud.
  • Independently execute tasks, solve problems, and report to technical leadership, with the goal of leading a broader team of full-time employees and interns in the future.
We’d love to see you comfortable with:
  • Working with the AOSP stack.
  • Shipping consumer software at scale.
  • Working with mobile devices.
  • Integrating with cutting-edge, AI-native services on-device or over-cloud.
  • Implementing new interaction paradigms, combined with great skills in designing application architecture.

This role is ideal for candidates who have four or more years of industry experience.

Nice to haves:
  • Experience working with a tablet form factor.
  • Experience with on-device audio processing (playback, capture, noise cancellation, echo cancellation).
  • Experience with WebRTC.

This role is based in our Los Angeles headquarters. However, we may consider remote candidates in exceptional circumstances.
