  • Deep experience in getting smart devices online using cellular network technologies (e.g. 2G/EGPRS, 3G, 4G, Cat-M1/LTE-M and Cat-NB/NB-IoT) and LoRaWAN – preferably globally
  • You know the good and excellent ranges of RSRQ, RSRP and RSSI, and know the difference between a 20 dB and 23 dB modem output power
  • Knowledge about 2G/3G sunsetting and LTE-bands in North America and Europe
  • You are well versed in communication protocols/networks such as Cellular, BLE, WiFi and TCP/IP
  • Experience with troubleshooting connectivity on cellular edge devices across different cellular networks at a low level (e.g. AT-commands, modem diagnostics, etc.)
  • Knowledge of IoT software platforms, mesh networking, sensor technologies, data transport protocols (e.g. MQTT, HTTPS, REST, XMPP)
  • The ability to effectively manage relationships with external vendors (network providers, MVNOs, etc.)
  • Experience with LTE-M on AT&T and Verizon, and NB-IoT on T-Mobile – or IoT Click Boards is a huge plus
  • The ability to identify opportunities and provide feedback to teams to improve their efficiency, quality level and productivity

You are a curious, self-motivated, and communicative person who is eager to learn and ready to join a startup with few formal procedures and limits.
