Who we are

At Inpixon, we turn location data into actionable indoor intelligence. Our comprehensive intelligence platform with mapping, positioning, security, and analytics harnesses the future of the Internet of Things (IoT) now.

We are motivated by and focused on our vision to ‘do good’ with indoor data and build something that can quite literally change the world we interact with. We take pride in the way we positively impact the daily lives of our customers and continue to push the boundaries of how our platform can benefit others. Inpixon’s Indoor Intelligence solutions can:

Help people return to the office safely. Through a track and trace app, we can push out notifications to individuals, activate requests for deep sanitation, close off access to spaces, and push people into alternate work areas with greater distance between them.
Help staff and patients navigate hospitals easily. Through indoor mapping and awareness, we can direct patients from their car directly to their appointments, from registration to labs, and to waiting rooms. For nurses, we can tag equipment and supplies allowing quick access to other team members, visualizing asset movement and sending notifications.
Increase safety within schools. Through positioning and awareness, we can push out alerts in real time if an unregistered device enters the premises and fails to obtain clearance.
Manage cybersecurity. Through integration with Mobile Device Management, we can detect unauthorized devices, control applications in secured zones, and uphold best practices, security policies and compliance in government, pharmaceutical, and financial agencies managing a sensitive work environment.
Optimize resources allocation. Through any number of our product features, we manage, prioritize, and control the way spaces are used and accessed. Whether it’s staff allocation in retail space, managing temperature and electricity consumption in a workspace, we improve space utilization.

Inpixon Indoor Intelligence is continuously uncovering new ways to improve our lives.

The technology

Inpixon Indoor Intelligence ingests diverse data from IoT and third-party sensors designed to detect and position all active - cellular, wifi, Bluetooth and Ultra-wide Band - devices using a proprietary computing process ensuring anonymity. Our platform provides a complete solution to locate, track, guide and monitor everything indoors along with the plug-in architecture and open APIs that enable interoperability and seamless integration with other systems increasing the reach, flexibility and power of indoor solutions.

The opportunity

Inpixon is looking for a Junior Automation Test Specialist who wants to play a critical role collaborating with our Development team and testing our new essential Workplace Readiness product. This is a greenfield opportunity to work in IoT, AI, and Indoor Intelligence, enhancing the way people navigate and experience indoor space digitally and in real-time. This is a chance for someone to join us in either our Palo Alto, CA or Toronto (Canada) locations or be part of our growing remote team.

Who you are

You are a new or recent grad with one year of professional or work-term experience and you are eager to learn everything you can about automation, testing, and shipping SaaS products in a cloud environment. You live and breathe tech, and you want to work for a company where you will be mentored and supported in your career trajectory. You are calm under pressure, approach testing in a systematic way and you enjoy digging into issues. You want to solve real-world problems with the latest IoT and AI technology and be part of the current movement focused on returning people to work in a smart, safe, and secure way.

What's in it for you

An incredible suite of products. This is a chance to be part of a scaling company that provides intelligent solutions to building operators with tools to help people return to work safely through indoor navigation, analytics dashboards, cybersecurity tools, asset-tracking to geofencing. We have a robust platform that has defined features and functionality, based on three pillars of indoor intelligence: maps, analytics, and positioning.

A genuine career opportunity. We are at a turning point in how indoor space is experienced, and we are growing rapidly. You will be mentored and learn from the Development team as you work in close partnership with them. You will have the chance to take on writing automation scripts and becoming an Automation Lead or growing into a Developer role.

A high growth company. You want to work at the cutting edge of IoT. We are disciplined about pouring our R&D dollars into it, and we recently raised $40 million. This is a chance to join a company that offers the best of both worlds: a funded, publicly-traded stable organization and a fast-paced, responsive and Agile scale-up investing in research and the latest-in-everything.

A collaborative team and supportive leader. We want your ideas and your involvement. This is a place where you can make mistakes and learn from them. With a quarterly set of goals and continuous feedback from your manager, you will expand your skills and stay on a progressive career track. You will be part of a team that hosts regular "show and share" opportunities where Engineers demonstrate what they are working on and talk about its impact on the evolution of the product or the business.

What you will focus on:
Test automation. You will execute automated tests for our web services and APIs; build performance test suites; and automate UI tests using provided feature files for our web and mobile platform.
Releases. You will ensure new features and functions are error-free, troubleshooting, and collaborating with teams to solve issues.
Learn. You will expand your testing skills, growing your understanding of how code was written and applications developed.

What do you bring?

The technical expertise. You have a Computer Science or Engineering degree, or you may have earned your hands-on skills in an alternate way. Through several academic-work terms or one year of professional experience, you have gained a solid foundation in Javascript, Java, or Python; an understanding of HTML and CSS best practices; and you have worked with RESTful APIs. You know how relational databases work and how to communicate with them.
An Agile team approach. You use an open mind to establish the groundwork for the tasks at hand. You understand how to work within an Agile framework. You are committed to your team, have fantastic communication skills, and the ability to pivot when needed.
A depth of practical knowledge. You understand how developers think and you use that knowledge to enhance automation and testing. You are always ready to brainstorm a solution for every kind of situation.

Why join us:
Together is better. We are one team. We recognize that people join a company, and want to be part of a team because of a shared vision, mission, and opportunity. Our mission to apply the best and latest in IoT, data analytics, and AI to every day indoor spaces is what drives our work. The people we work with are what brings us together every day.

Together we make it happen. We got this. We are all rowing in sync, in the same direction, heading towards group success and individual championing. Everyone at Inpixon is engaged with what we do, who we do it with and why we do it.

Courage is contagious. We have the courage to innovate. We are willing to take risks, try new things, fail fast and learn from our mistakes. Accountability and responsiveness guide the way we work with each other and our customers.

Balance tensions. We prioritize competing concepts to scale and grow. We are a publicly traded company with a multinational outlook that nurtures a start-up mentality. We measure outcomes not time, guided by the principle of being present and meeting goals and that provides the balance of life outside work.

If you feel you have 70% of the qualifications we are looking for and Inpixon sounds like something you want to be part of, apply now. We can't promise it will be a fit, but we do promise to consider your experience.

At Inpixon, we celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. We believe that diversity & inclusion among our teammates is critical to our success, and we seek to recruit, develop, and retain people from a diverse candidate pool. We welcome and encourage applications from people of all abilities. Accommodations are available on request for candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process.
