Nabu Casa is hiringNode.js developer

Who we are looking for

Nabu Casa is looking for a Node.js developer to join our Cloud & Infrastructure team full-time, working primarily on Home Assistant Cloud services.

As one of the most active open-source projects in the world, Home Assistant exists because of its community. To empower this community and allow more users to enjoy the harder-to-reach features of Home Assistant, we have created our subscription service, Home Assistant Cloud. This service gives the community access to features that are normally reserved for power users with expensive hardware at home. Current features such as remote access and text-to-speech / speech-to-text support are made available without ever compromising on privacy. We're looking for someone who will maintain the existing features and infrastructure and help us create valuable new features with efficiency and privacy in mind.

What you are going to do

  • Design and implement scalable, high-performance, and reliable Node.js applications
  • Review teammates code
  • Collaborate with Support and Home Assistant Core teams to define, design, and ship new features
  • Ensure the performance, quality, and responsiveness of the cloud services
  • Implement security and data protection measures
  • Stay up-to-date with industry trends and ensure the team adopts best practice

What you need to have

  • 2 years of professional experience in Node.js/Typescript
  • Basic knowledge of system administration
  • Experience with cloud services (preferably AWS)
  • Experience with Git & Github
  • Strong verbal and written English communication skills

It would be great if you also have

  • Experience in NestJS
  • Experience in Terraform
  • Experience in Grafana
  • Experience in Python
  • Knowledge in modern frontend app development, preferably React
  • Personal experience using Home Assistant
  • Affinity with open-source development and philosophy

We would like to receive your Github profile with your application.

What we offer you

Nabu Casa is a fully remote company that uses Remote to employ people from all over the world. You will be a normal salaried employee in your country, and no work visa is required.

This is a full-time position for 40 hours per week. Because we are a fully remote company, there is no fixed schedule. For the purpose of team communication, we do try to ensure at least 3 hours of overlap in the workday. You will be part of the Cloud & Infrastructure team, and your team manager is based in the CET timezone (UTC +01:00), so you need to be based in a European timezone.

As a profitable company with no investors, we prioritize our team’s well-being. We will adhere to all benefits the local laws of your country provide, but we also want to make sure all our employees, regardless of country of origin, get at least a minimal set of benefits, including:

  • Five weeks (twenty-five days) of paid time off.
  • Fourteen days of paid sick leave if your country/laws treat them as unpaid.
  • Six weeks of paid and six weeks of unpaid parental leave to be used in the first year after birth. We will provide the missing days if your country/laws do not provide such compensation.
  • A budget to equip your home workspace once you start. After three years, you may keep this equipment for personal use.
  • A monthly smart home budget to ensure you keep up-to-date with the latest that smart homes offer.
  • A 50% contribution to your internet connection fee at your home workspace.
  • If you are currently working on Home Assistant-related side projects, you can spend work time maintaining it.

About us

Home Assistant is the world's largest free and open-source smart home platform, powering 1 million households globally. It's built on the principle that a smart home should serve its users, not big tech companies, and prioritizes privacy and local control. Powered by a worldwide community of open-source developers, it was ranked the second most active open-source project in the world in 2023 by GitHub.

Nabu Casa was founded to ensure that the development of Home Assistant would remain sustainable as it kept growing. We now employ more than 30 contributors from all over the world to make sure they have the financial freedom to focus on Home Assistant and other open-source projects that help drive the Open Home vision.

Nabu Casa is profitable, has no external investors, and our only funding comes from people subscribing to Home Assistant Cloud and buying Home Assistant hardware. That means the only stakeholders we have to concern ourselves with are our employees and our users.

Our Open Home vision defines the values that we put at the heart of every decision we make. It’s woven into our architecture, licensing, community, and everything else. The Open Home vision is about privacy, choice, and sustainability.

Other Open Home projects supported by Nabu Casa include:

These projects are open source and made available to the whole world to power projects beyond the scope of Home Assistant.
