Our Values

Blues Wireless is founded on engineering excellence. We know the velocity of the software engineering team has the biggest impact on the bottom line. We believe that high performing software teams satisfy customer requests faster, while doing it more often, recover from failure faster, and fail less. This mean we push testing and security to the left to try to find defects as early as possible. We prefer pushing many small changes quickly over a having a longer development cycle with larger releases. We leave ourselves clues via metrics, log, and automated alerts to detect failures and debug them at speed. And we measure everything so we can verify how awesome it all is with confidence.  

Our Tech

We currently use Go, Vue.js, and the Hashicorp suite (Packer, Terraform, Consul, Nomad) + Docker. A willingness to learn and experiment with new tech is much more important than hands-on experience with our current stack.  

What you'll do:

  • Work with your teammates to prioritize features, design the software, and break the design down into smaller tasks.
  • Write clean maintainable code and review your teammates code for the same.
  • Thoroughly test your own code, from unit tests to automated end-to-end test.
  • Collect metrics and monitor that everything is working. Also leave a trail of structured logs.
  • Debug + repair the system if anything is broken
  • Be deeply concerned with our customers needs and why those needs exist  

Who you are:

  • World class attention to detail and well organized. Was the kid with the neatest lab notebook.

This is something we value deeply and we encourage everyone to come be a part of unlocking the potential of cellular IoT.
