Matchstiq's take on Osho

Osho is on a mission to build a residential electricity model that is fit for the future world.

The market opportunity ahead for Osho

The first leap we are taking is to redesign the electrical infrastructure that homes depend on. It's a small step in our master plan, but an important one if we are to realise our ambitious vision. We all need to contribute to accelerating efforts to combat climate change and dampen rising household costs.

Why Osho is a great place to work

At Osho, we're building a team of exceptionally talented people to drive toward our goals. We are driven by purpose, real innovation and ambition. We're well-funded and are growing fast - but we're focused on doing so with the right people, a solid culture of ambition and values that mean something to all of us.

Although we have offices, we take a remote-first approach to ensure we are ready for any situation, way of life, type of person or location, as best as we can. We also have great flexibility, office dogs and unlimited annual leave.

Our Culture

What makes Osho a great place to work

Our team is empathetic, passionate, and constantly learning and improving the way we work together. We encourage everyone to take an entrepreneurial approach to their work, and test new ideas for the good of the company, even if there are many failures along the way.

We promote distributed, remote working, but some of our team does need to be based close to our Christchurch Design Lab for access to products and tools. Despite being dispersed, our team communicates regularly, travels between offices on occasion, and has flexibility when it comes to work hours, days, and locations.

We’re building a talented team across many domains - design, hardware and software engineering, product, community, operations, and people experience (to name a few) and we’d love to hear from you regardless of where you are in NZ (or the wider world)!

Why now?

This is your chance to be a part of something new, exciting, and well-funded at an early stage - an opportunity that many people look for in a start-up but can miss out on. Not only that, you’re helping contribute to a higher purpose by pushing society towards cleaner, greener energy and reducing our collective carbon footprint. 

We’ve got a motivating ESOP scheme, an unlimited annual leave policy, the choice to work from home when you want, office dogs, and team events (just ask what we did for our Christmas party last year). So jump aboard!

Power Electronics Engineer

The Role

We have lots of interesting power electronics problems to solve and need an excellent engineer to design world class solutions. We are presently transitioning from research into design, so you will have a foot in both camps, as we simultaneously progress our future roadmap technologies and address our most urgent product design requirements and their transition to production.

Some of the things that you might be involved in include:

  • Negotiating design requirements, topology selection and cross-functional tradeoffs
  • Evaluating circuit topologies and concepts, supported by simulation where appropriate
  • Creating, reviewing and updating schematics and PCB layouts
  • Establishing test plans and conducting extensive detailed design analysis of power electronic circuits
  • Constructing test jigs and prototypes. This includes performing circuit bringup, debugging and design verification testing in our electronics lab.
  • Working with the rest of our hardware team to develop custom transducers, high-bandwidth opamp circuits, high-bandgap semiconductor switches, FET gate driver circuits and AC to DC power supplies
  • Analysing standards and designing products to meet them e.g. creepage & clearance, withstand voltages, leakage current and EMC

About You

We know from research that women and other marginalised groups tend to apply only if they feel they check every box. So take note of what we've listed below, but if you think you have what it takes and aren't sure you meet all the bullet points, we still want to hear from you
