More than 30% of the global energy is used for heating and cooling of buildings. We believe that this environmental footprint can be reduced significantly by controlling the indoor climate in an intelligent way. Therefore, we develop and sell our smart thermostats and additional services. Now, tado° is the European market leader, being internationally recognized for our unmatched compatibility, our award-winning elegant design, and for being integrated with major smart home platforms.tado° has a strong and fast-growing consumer business in 18 countries as well as a fast-growing B2B business with significant energy companies as our customers. Founded in 2011 in Munich, there are now over 180 employees - roughly half of whom are engineers - contributing daily to the success of our company. We want to make a difference, challenge ourselves and our business every day, and are looking for new colleagues who are just as passionate about our products as we are.

  • Ensuring continuous production flow through our 30+ fully remote administrable test stations (FT, EOL) deployed at our contract manufacturing partners
  • Rapidly and continuously improving the current production processes and tech stacks analyzing the extensive data gathered by our deployed test stations
  • Collaborating with our contract manufacturing partner’s on-site Production Engineers to establish new processes and to scale production including automation of workflows and deployments
  • Scaling our Python-based production software framework to the next level
  • Collaborating with both Embedded Firmware and Hardware Engineers to increase reliability and coverage for tests and to develop new ways of integration
  • Analyzing and presenting engineering tradeoffs to other stakeholders within the company (eg. Supply Chain Management, Product Development Teams, ...)
