Remote management for all.

What is SixEye?

Unifying remote management for manufacturers and integrators of lighting and audio visual control systems.

Theme parks, architecture, live entertainment, exhibitions, retail - across the world, installations are controlled 24/7 by millions of sophisticated devices.

Specialist companies integrate lighting with video; fountain control with audio; rollercoaster ride position with animatronic hydraulics. Interoperable control products from many manufacturers are brought together to create astounding results.

Fountains under control

But once an installation is up and running and the technicians, programmers and integrators have left, how easy is it to make changes to content? When something stops working, how much does it cost to send someone to site to diagnose and fix the problem?

Clients demand remote access - for monitoring, control and content management. But simply getting a secure, 2-way communication link to the myriad devices involved in any one installation requires additional hardware and expertise. In reality, remote access is rarely achieved.

Faders on control desk

What if secure remote management of lighting and audio visual control devices was as simple as plugging them in, anywhere in the world? And what if devices from multiple manufacturers could be managed together, in one web application, across multiple locations?

This is our mission. SixEye is developing a hosted platform to allow manufacturers and system integrators to provide a unified remote management solution under their own brand that seamlessly combines the remote management of content and devices from multiple manufacturers.

Overview

SixEye is an exciting startup, based in west London. SixEye is developing a multi-tenant, scalable SaaS platform that allows integrators of audio visual control systems to provide a unified remote management solution under their own brand, seamlessly combining the remote management of content and devices from multiple manufacturers. The product was launched in March 2018 and we are due to start deploying to live installations from August 2018.

SixEye raised investment and successfully pitched for incubation support from Carallon, a pioneering company with a track record of incubating successful startups working at the forefront of live entertainment & architectural control system development. Carallon is behind the success of Brompton Technology (New Company of the Year, Elektra Awards 2016), manufacturer of industry-leading video processors, and Pharos Architectural Controls, manufacturer of multi-award winning architectural lighting control systems.

The board & management team of SixEye are experienced entrepreneurs, bringing decades of experience in product development, software design, sales & new business development.

SixEye is seeking a highly-motivated Ruby on Rails developer to join its development team.

Above all, you will be:

  • Fastidious in the design of secure, performant, scalable web applications.
  • Fearless when trying new technologies and techniques.
  • Excited by the development of elegant, reliable, tested code and continuous integration.

Your primary responsibilities will include:

  • Working closely with the Lead Developer and back end team to implement features and associated tests for the SixEye JSON API server, built with Rails 5.2.
  • Taking responsibility for the full development lifecycle of new features.
  • Working in partnership with embedded systems engineers to integrate the JSON API with the SixEye SDK for embedded devices.
  • Ensuring software is easy to maintain, efficient, loosely coupled and adheres to the company's design principles.

You will also:

  • Have 2-3 years' experience working with Ruby on Rails in a comparable role.
  • Have a good degree in a relevant discipline (e.g. Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, etc.).
  • Have a thorough understanding of:
    • Object-oriented programming principles & design patterns.
    • Web technologies & protocols (HTTPS, HTML, SASS, JavaScript, etc.).
    • Database access and concurrency considerations.
  • Have experience of:
    • Developing RESTful APIs (knowledge of the JSON API specification would be beneficial).
    • Integrating with third-party services.
    • Using Git for version control.
  • Be familiar with the JSON Web Token standard, and the use of JWTs for authentication.
  • Have excellent technical communication skills in both verbal and written English.
  • Have excellent analytical skills, including the ability to understand and form clear arguments around complex information.
  • Be adept at time management when required to prioritise conflicting tasks.

Technologies

On the front end, we're using Redux with React to implement a web client to interact with our JSON API. We're testing JavaScript with Jest. Deployment is to AWS, using S3 with CloudFront.

Our JSON API server is implemented in Ruby on Rails. We use Codeship for CI and AWS Elastic Beanstalk for continuous delivery to EC2.

Why work for us?

  • We believe in collaboration to solve problems. Great ideas may come from anyone — your contribution is welcome and encouraged. If people find a better way — we do that.
  • Within the Carallon group of companies, many of the team come from a live entertainment background, which fosters a high degree of shared responsibility and effort as deadlines approach.
  • Code is reviewed; engineers review each other's code.
  • We believe in continuous professional development. Time off is given to attend weekly sessions run by engineers, for engineers, as well as sessions from non-engineering disciplines. An extensive library of technical resources is available, including subscriptions to online training platforms, which engineers are encouraged to make use of for technologies in or outside of their role.
  • SixEye offers a flexible working environment — there are core hours to facilitate maximum collaboration whilst allowing employees to skew their day early or late as desired. Most roles allow you to work remotely if desired.
  • Annual leave is flexible — you can choose to work on public holidays if you want to take them at another time, in addition to 25 days paid holiday.
  • We'll match your pension contributions up to 4%.
