At QuantAQ, we build low-cost, professional-grade air quality sensors and associated software platform to help deploy and manage distributed air ...View Company Profile
At QuantAQ, our mission is to mitigate global air pollution.
As a company, we value the role that fundamental scientific and engineering research play in developing new technologies while doing so with the knowledge that what we build must scale if we want to meet our goals.
At QuantAQ, we provide access to professional-grade air quality data to a variety of clients (including research, government, and the private sector) to empower informed decision-making and to create cleaner (air) outcomes. We provide our clients with everything they need to build and manage distributed air quality sensor networks at scale including our proprietary air quality sensors (developed through years of R+D at MIT and Aerodyne Research) and our integrated software platform. We care deeply about using innovative technologies and socio-technological approaches to help businesses, governments, and community stakeholders obtain actionable air quality information across a variety of contexts.
If you're looking for an opportunity that allows you to highlight your own skills and solve one of society's most pressing environmental challenges, we would love to hear from you. To learn more about QuantAQ, check out our Climatetech Summit video.
We are looking for a talented and experienced full-stack python developer to help drive the development of our core software platform. QuantAQ builds internet-connected air quality sensors and an associated software platform (QuantAQ Cloud). The QuantAQ Cloud supports our globally-distributed sensor network and helps our customers make educated decisions about their air quality in real-time.
