Angaza Design provides a hardware/software platform that enables “Pay-As-You-Go” (PAYG) pricing for solar energy products in emerging markets. Our reference design is a 3W solar device from which customers in East Africa can buy energy using electronic payments, exactly like they buy cell phone airtime. Our technology makes it possible for distributors and manufacturers of energy products to reach the billion+ consumers living off-grid.
Angaza is looking for a talented generalist electrical engineer to join our team in the SF Bay Area.
designing and optimizing new product hardware;
supporting ongoing manufacturing;
assisting with firmware development;
contributing to collaborative research in low-cost distributed metering, including novel digital communication systems;
traveling occasionally to field sites across the world;
and helping to solve any of the unforeseen and exciting challenges that emerge in a rapidly changing startup environment.
If hired, you will create a new approach to how energy is generated, distributed, and financed in emerging markets. You will receive both a salary and equity stake in the company.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
