Job Description

Who is Wyze?
Wyze’s mission is to make great technology accessible to everyone because we believe that when great technology is accessible, curiosity thrives! Founded just over three years ago, Wyze started out as a smart camera company, has since branched out into the entire smart home ecosystem, and recently raised $15M in its latest funding round.
Our offices are based in Kirkland, WA, an outstanding city 10.3 miles east of downtown Seattle and nestled around beautiful Lake Washington! We also have offices in Beijing and Shenzhen, China!
At the announcement of the pandemic reaching US borders, Wyze employees quickly adapted to WFH setups and we, as well as any new hires, will continue to thrive from the safety of our homes until we can make a safe return to work in our new, COVID-conscious office space.
This role is based full-time in Kirkland, Washington and we are happy to help new folks relocate to this wonderful, tech-savvy city!
