In order to accomplish this vision, we develop our very own SODAQ hardware products that are compatible with many existing modules and systems, allowing for seamless integration with existing products on the market. Our boards are so energy efficient, that projects are able to be powered by small lithium batteries and solar panels alone, removing the need for devices to be plugged into the wall. Whether it’s building an innovative smart label for one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the world, or whether it’s developing a small-sized solar powered ear tag to help rural farmers in Australia track their cattle – SODAQ does it all. With a small scale team, every input counts. Joining SODAQ therefore offers you a range of benefits. Firstly, you get to take part in world class developments that will almost always be deployed in the field. Even our interns contribute to these projects! Secondly, the team is young, international and dynamic giving you a set of enjoyable colleagues to interact with on a daily basis. Alongside this, the growth of the company will give you unique possibilities to develop into different functions should this be of interest. Finally, the salary itself is competitive, providing another reason to join our high-tech firm. Check out the open positions below!
