We are now entering a stage where we offer the window covering industry and retailers the opportunity to sell the product through their channels. This will mean a strong expansion and a very exciting trip where you can form the MOVE Teptron app's UI / UX.
We can offer you:
* To be involved early in the development of the company with the ability to influence and put your mark on a system that has a large user base and is growing fast.
* The opportunity to work in an environment where ideas about products can be quickly transformed into working prototypes and supplies. This is because the company has electronic design capacity and has a smaller production line for PCBs, 3D cad tools, 3D printers and many other machines for machine processing.
* employment in a dynamic startup company at the forefront of Bluetooth Mesh and IoT. Which brings the opportunity to work with the latest technology and develop new skills.
* Freedom under responsibility and the ability to work remotely.
* Ongoing new challenges and problem solving in a creative environment.
Objective-C / Swift programming
Frameworks such as Core Data and Core Animation
SQLite database programming
SQLite database programming
Previous experience with Bluetooth LE is a plus but not necessary to apply.
*Previous experience with app development is a requirement.
Who are we?
Teptron AB | Sweden
We consider ourselves to be a technology startup with the focus on creating smart solutions for the window covering industry. By using the latest technology in combination with innovative ideas, we can offer alternative solutions to motorize blinds/shades versus the already established brands in the market.
We are today six people working at Teptron and we are all passionate about creating new products and "brain storms" about new products that would bring smart digital solutions to traditional analog products.
We are pioneers for the Bluetooth "Mesh" technology and are leading in Sweden when it comes to the number of Bluetooth Mesh products we put on the market. Our smart motor for new and existing blinds and shades is the smartest (if we can tell it yourself) and the best-selling motor for retrofitting on the market.
In the company, we have a broad experience in product development. We have the opportunity to make prototype and supplies in-house. We work with SolidWorks for 3D cad compilation and simulation, have 3D printers and various other mechanical processing machines. We work in Altium for electronics construction and have a smaller line for the production of printed circuit boards.
An overall goal we have is to keep development and production geographically close to each other. This is partly from an environmental perspective, but also because we believe it is important for the quality. By keeping development and production geographically close together, we can quickly capture problems and more naturally find possible solutions.
Therefore, we have many Swedish suppliers and constantly work on evaluating geographically close suppliers that can deliver the components and knowledge we need.
If you are interested get in touch with us!

Visit us at R+T Stuttgart - 18
We are happy to announce that Teptron is one of the exhibitors at the worlds largest trade fair for roller shutters, doors/gates and sun protection systems.
Before founding Teptron and deciding to create a smart motor for existing blinds and shades part of our team was in the blinds industry. It was then that the idea to find a solution that could be retrofitted to new and existing blinds was born.
Now there is such a solution and it is called MOVE with over 10.000 users of the product!
So far we have only sold the product online but the product is now mature enough to start selling it through physical stores and through the professional blinds industry.
If you are nearby Stuttgart in late February come and visit us. We are eager to chat with you and show you our product first hand.
You will find us at Hall 7 Booth No:7A64 at the 27th of February - 3rd of March 2018
To book a meeting contact email@example.com
That said, we hope that you are soon able to find MOVE in a local blinds store near you!

New Android app is now released!
Automate your blinds and shades, create groups, set favorites and so much more...
We are happy to announce that the new Android app and the OTAU (Over the air upgrade) app is finally ready and released. We know that a lot of you have been waiting patiently a long time for the automations to be activated in your MOVE Teptron app. It is finally here and we are super excited to finally be able to release it! The features that you have been missing are included in the new app, automate your blinds on time, sun or temperature, create groups, set favorites and more. Download the MOVE Teptron app in Google Play but before you do that you need to upgrade the firmware in your MOVE units, read about it below.
For the last 6-8 months have been working on rebuilding our previous mesh to be more in line with the new official Bluetooth mesh standard.
If you have not heard about Bluetooth mesh before, Bluetooth mesh allows Bluetooth devices to behave similar as Wi-Fi devices in a Wi-Fi network. This means that you will enter a network key and then be able to communicate with all devices in that network. This is done using standard Bluetooth which mean you do not need anything more than a regular smartphone to access and control the Bluetooth mesh network. But the huge benefit of using Bluetooth mesh is that all devices will retransmit the messages sent in the network , this extends the range and makes sure the messages actually gets to the designated device.
This is perfect for MOVE as we usually have a lot of windows/ blinds that you want to motorize and sometimes in a big house. So even if you are far away from the MOVE unit that you want to control the message will jump from one MOVE unit to another until it reaches the unit that is intended to receive the message.
Bluetooth mesh is also great because we want to save as much energy as possible. Compared to other radio protocols (Wi-Fi, ZigBee, Z-wave and so on) Bluetooth is the most energy efficient. That is very important if you run MOVE on only batteries, so it is able to run for a longer time period without the need to recharge the batteries.
Another great aspect is that you do not need a HUB or Gateway to enjoy the mesh benefits. You are able to control up to (theoretically) about 65.000 MOVE units directly from your phone or tablet.
That said, here it is!
Upgrading your existing MOVE units with the new firmware
Before you are able to enjoy all the new features you need to upgrade the firmware in your MOVE units. You do this through MOVE OTAU that is available to download in Google Play. It´s an easy process which only takes a couple of minutes for each MOVE unit.
As it has not been tested among thousands of users before we really appreciate all feedback we can get, thanks in advance! We would also appreciate if you rate us and type a comment regarding your experience with MOVE, be kind please =)
If you are having issues with the upgrade of your MOVE units contact us first before you give us a low rating in Google Play.
Thank you very much all MOVE users and if you need assistance we are happy to help!
