To solve the global problem of energy poverty and the lack of access to essential products across Africa, the role of technology is essential. At Bboxx, we are ambitious to help solve the issue of energy poverty and fulfill the UN SDGs. In order to do so, it requires best-in-class technology and our devices team works day and night to bring such technology to life.
Our devices team is consisting of hardware, production, and support functions. From electronic engineers to firmware experts, all these engineers work in synergy to transform millions of lives.
The hardware function is based on industrial designers, mechanical, electrical and firmware engineers. They are responsible to bring our products to life. From designing the PCBs to testing the firmware, these engineers work in close coordination with our Innovation team to continuously enhance the experience of our customers.
Once the systems are rolled out to the markets, the IoT device management team jumps in to monitor the performance of our solar home systems. Each of our solar home systems is IoT (Internet of Things) connected, enabling us to remotely monitor and control the systems round the clock. The IoT device management team, along with the devices support function, wake up every morning with one and only one goal – to make sure our systems are operating efficiently in a customer’s house. Each unit generates over 1 billion data points including various alerts. These engineers use key data points like current in, current out, voltage, temperature, and connectivity to understand the consumption patterns of our customers, helping us serve our customers better.
Our dedicated team of hardware engineers is at the core of our business.
