Who are we?
Sidewalk Labs is an Alphabet company with a mission to radically improve urban life. We aim to create inclusive, large-scale communities by bringing together an innovative planning approach, products and services designed to address urban challenges, and capital for real estate and advanced infrastructure.
Since our founding in 2015, we've grown into an organization of over 100 employees based primarily in New York and Toronto. Our cross-disciplinary team consists of experts from real estate, urban planning, government, finance, technology, and engineering, among other backgrounds.
With the potential to catalyze and scale new models for inclusive growth, our work is both highly exciting and complex. We are working to achieve something unprecedented — help us build it!
What is the role?
To significantly improve sustainability and reduce costs in buildings, Sidewalk Labs is developing new technology that will revolutionize electrical distribution within buildings by using new hardware and software. You will be working to build and integrate our advanced, next generation electrical systems for commercial and residential buildings. This system is a combination of hardware and software built internally and with third parties.
We are looking for a hardware engineer and prototyper to join our team. Your first project will be improving our existing low voltage DC power system used in offices. This involves everything from circuit design to physical prototyping. From there, it is working with partners to continue prototyping and designing the system.

As this is an early-stage product, conversion to full-time regular employment or an extension of full-time fixed-term will be based on a combination of personal performance and long-term investment in the product.
