Software Engineer

Redwood City   |   Full Time

Our Mission: 

KAV creates the first helmet that you want to wear and provides an elevated level of protection for you and the planet. Our 3D printing process means each helmet is made-to-order resulting in a custom fit and eliminates waste. Starting with the first 3d printed hockey helmet and our new bike helmet, KAV redefines your personal best.


Your Role: 

Work on our proprietary fabrication stack including our impact testing platform, printer management platform, slicing software and customization platform.


What You’ll Be Doing:

  1. Improving the instrumentation and analytics of our test labs to provide the data necessary to make the most protective helmets.
  2. Automating and streamlining our 3D printer farm to create the most advanced helmets in the world.
  3. Enhancing our proprietary slicer to decrease print times, improve fit and finish and minimize post processing of helmet components. 


Key Ingredients for Success:

  • A shared passion for our mission and with it the desire to put all that you love into everything that you do at KAV.
  • Initiative to proactively improve on our early infrastructure. The ability to understand product goals and translate that into software requirements, code and unit tests.
  • Willingness to dive into complex and novel problems and collaborate with other polymaths to iterate towards the best solution.
  • Preferably 3-5 years of experience in software development, including test first practices.
  • “A spike” - the team is comprised of a professional violist from the SF Orchestra, a two-time D1 national volleyball champion, and an engineer who used laser interferometry to detect corrosion in nuclear reactors. The only thing our diverse team has in common is excellence.


What You’ll Get: 

  • The fun and excitement of working in a growing company, developing bleeding edge technology. 
  • The freedom to develop amongst an experienced team from Google, Giro and Bell.
  • Competitive salary and stock options in an early stage startup.
