Software @ Deako

The software team is a tight-knit team of smart, dedicated people. We are customer focused, we ship often, and are constantly asking “why.” We are passionate about the software we write. We work closely with other Deako teams. Developers at Deako are always looking for a better way and understand that no code is perfect.

Firmware @ Deako

Building firmware at Deako has some unique challenges! Working with upwards of 25 devices in a house, deploying devices that have to work without any internet connection, and more! We’re in the process of building new products and upgrading our existing ones to support more features into the future. The firmware team owns the chip responsible for the Mobile, Cloud and Intra-device communications over Bluetooth and Wifi.
