ChemiSense has developed an air quality monitor that is able to detect all of the key pollutants of air quality present throughout the world today. The data collected by our devices are sent to the Cloud, where proprietary software and machine learning algorithms parse the data, and allow our device to provide an unprecedented degree of accuracy and range of detection for commercial and indoor building applications. Our devices are able to detect PM1, PM2.5, PM10, NO2, CO, CO2, tVOCs, Formaldehyde, Humidity, and Temperature at or below levels set out by organizations such as OSHA and the EPA, and our primary focus is on the indoor air quality markets.
Our company has just found its first large scale customer (1000+ units), and we offer a (relatively) unique opportunity for students to work with a small scale very bootstrapped startup as it begins to scale its production lines, and as such there are many needs. We are generally most in need of test engineers, programmers (C, application developers, front-end work), and people to help create marketing materials such as product videos, technical documents and case studies of our devices.
As mentioned above, our primary goal for any business/marketing oriented interns would be to create marketing materials such as product videos, technical documents and case studies of our devices that have been deployed in the field.
We are also looking for engineers to help on two fronts of our front-end experience: an application able to fully display device data from our web server and also connect our device to the internet, and also to help clean up the current website (separate from the ChemiSense.co website) that is used to display the data from our sensors.
We are finally looking for additional test engineers to help run continued longevity tests, data analytics and device validation tests. This would involve some work with compressed gasses, test ovens, and a good amount of data crunching.
