A job at Latch is more than just that - it's the opportunity to look forward to every day ahead. We share passion, dedication, and sheer love for what we do.

So, what are you waiting for?

Renting a home is the world's oldest subscription service. People spend thousands of dollars every month for an experience that is outdated, inconvenient, analog, impersonal, and leaves a lot to be desired. Latch is working to make every building better, and while we've methodically executed this mission since our founding with great success, we're just getting started.

Leveraging our knowledge from companies like Apple, BCG, and IDEO, we’ve rethought how people interact with space. Latch delivers a full-building operating system designed to help owners, residents, and third parties like guests, couriers, and service providers, seamlessly experience the modern building. We’ve done this by combining software, devices, and services into a holistic platform that makes spaces more efficient, enjoyable, and profitable.

The next chapter of the Latch story will be our most exciting yet, and we’re looking for more talented team members to help fuel our growth.

Latch is paving new ground at the nexus of building hardware, access control, and consumer-facing UI/UX. The test engineering team is responsible for automation/robotics, in house test planning and execution, third party test sites, and lab management. This role will be responsible for prioritizing test plans and execution, ownership of testing deliverables, and developing test protocols to improve development cycles. This requires a candidate that has a strong background in these areas combined with a passion for creating a framework to enable cross organizational deployment of testing methods. This is a highly cross-functional position, working with in-house and outside labs, product team, hardware engineering, software, and firmware quality assurance to ensure the successful delivery of new solutions to our customers.
