We are offering a rare opportunity in a fast-moving and challenging work environment. As a member of our tech-team you will not only develop features for our voice-operated / always on / Android computer but you will also get the chance to be in on the bottom floor of a leading-edge start-up company.
Skills & Requirements
You have successfully completed university in the field of computer science and you are an outstanding developer talent with a risk-reward, entrepreneurial spirit. You enjoy creating from a blank page and you see product performance as a feature. You are characterized by accuracy, professionalism and the ability to act as a team player.
You may have some experience in working on mobile/ tablet apps and perhaps a year or so working with Android. But just as this experience plus Java, C+ and Android SDK are important to this job, even more so is your attitude and sense of creativity, innovation, curiosity and problem solving.
If you have always wanted to work for an exciting start-up and wanted to be part of a young, dynamic and forward thinking team? Then working on Ubi is the right place for you!
About Ubi and about us:
Ubi is a new form of computer that will change how people interact with computers at home. Short form for Ubiquitous Computer, Ubi is a voice-operated computer that plugs into a wall outlet connects to the Internet through WiFi. It has a microphone and speakers and listens for commands and speaks back the results. Saying "Ubi" wakes up the Ubi for receiving verbal commands. You can then instruct the Ubi to do your bidding. Ubi will receive plain language commands. Ubi communicates back to you through speech or by using lights. Ubi creates a smart home where the Internet is embedded in your surroundings.
Onboard the Ubi are sensors to monitor your environment, e.g., temperature, humidity, air pressure, ambient light, etc. This data can be stored online or used to trigger alerts to your mobile device or email.
The Ubi runs Android with a powerful processor to perform voice recognition and also has the ability to connect to other devices. You can plug in speakers, USB drives, or connect through Bluetooth directly to your iPhone or Android device. For developers, you can also communicate with potentially thousands of devices (through RF, wifi, or Bluetooth) and we're making the device open so peripherals and other applications can be used with it.
Ubi is also the first product to be offered by the Unified Computer Intelligence Corporation based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
