iFixit's sister company Dozuki is building software that enables industrial companies to improve their manufacturing practices in real time. Dozuki make it easy to create documentation for any employee to learn how to build rockets. (Really, one of our customers is building rockets but we can’t tell you about them–yet. Another is building hypersonic airplanes.) Workers who assemble rockets and fast airplanes need to get trained and certified on specific machinery and grow into new roles as their skills improve. Oh, and one of our other customers is working on the COVID-19 vaccine. Training people matters!

At Dozuki you’ll be managing a high-caliber team of engineers in the beautiful city of San Luis Obispo. Relocation required (post-pandemic).

What You'd Be Doing

Our north star is teaching people at scale how to accomplish tasks in the real world. The biggest obstacle to people learning is a lack of information, so our software makes it easy to create training information in any language to be deployed on any device.

Manufacturers are stuck using 20th century tools–you’d be shocked how many times we find reams of paper on the assembly line. We’re replacing that with a modern and sophisticated content and training management system. Built on the solid technical foundation of iFixit, the highly popular online repair wiki, we are adding enterprise-grade data controls, on premise product delivery via Terraform, and a spectrum of manufacturing-oriented features like worker skill ratings.

This job isn’t easy. We have to manage the complexities of revision control and offline mobile access. We also make all content automatically machine translated (we just added Haitian Creole support!), but provide humans the ability to improve the text. And we natively support rich media, from photos to videos to technical schematics.

  • Lead our engineering team to ship high-quality software on predictable schedules.
    • Set expectations, provide regular feedback, perform reviews & generally hold team members accountable.
    • Support engineers and help reach a resolution when challenges arise.
    • Craft a fulfilling and engaging work experience through regular career growth and development conversations.
  • Translate our technical roadmap into action. Build an intuitive, fast, scalable experience for our users.
  • Iterate and improve our engineering processes and set a high bar for technical excellence.
  • Maintain a strong and up-to-date understanding of the challenges and opportunities your team is facing building and deploying software. Most of your time may not be spent coding, but you should get your hands dirty regularly to maintain context, ask informative questions, and assist the team in making strategic trade-offs
  • Hire and train new engineers as our team grows.

Why Dozuki?

Manufacturing is one of the last industries to be disrupted by software. It's unfortunate that the production floors of today look pretty similar to 50 years ago. At Dozuki, you'll join a team that is leading a new wave of software adoption by making modern Standard Work an industry standard.

Dozuki is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. Diverse teams are better teams. We believe that it takes people of all backgrounds to help us reach our highest potential. Therefore, Dozuki does not discriminate based upon race, religion, color, national origin, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, status as a protected veteran, status as an individual with a disability, or any of the other important characteristics that make us unique and valuable.

Dozuki is committed to creating a diverse team—not only in who we hire—but through creating a supportive environment for all of our team members based on mutual respect and inclusivity.
