What is your name, title, and role at your company?
Brandon Satrom, VP of Experience Engineering
What does your company do?
Blues Wireless is accelerating IoT by providing low-code solutions for connecting devices to the cloud. Our embeddable, wireless smart device infrastructure enables customers to deploy and test custom-built devices simply, quickly, and affordably, and our consumption-based pricing allows them to scale at their own pace.
What are some neat projects that your company is currently working on?
We have a lot going on! We just released Sparrow, our new product that enables low-cost LoRa-based sensor cluster deployments. We also have another product launch, a game-changing feature update, and a major global initiative all on the horizon. Unfortunately, we can’t share too many details about those… yet! But stay tuned.
How would you describe your company’s culture?
We are builders at heart and the culture at Blues Wireless is collaborative to its core. Everyone who works at Blues is quick to support their colleagues and pick up any ball that’s handed to them. It’s a collective of curious minds all driven to deliver a product to the world because we believe in it, and we believe in the power of connectivity to solve problems that were impossible twenty years ago. “IoT for good” is also part of our company ethos, and we all rally behind the power of the Blues Wireless product family to enable people to make positive change.
How does your company differentiate itself from your competitors?
We believe that simplifying IoT product creation is the key to accelerating adoption and achieving the projections of billions upon billions of IoT devices. Some of that shines through in our no-fees approach to pricing the Notecard, 100% JSON-based API for wireless communications, and usage-based cloud pricing. At our core, though, we believe that what the IoT space needs is not another platform, but a set of low-code products and approaches that solve a common set of problems across IoT use cases, and that gets out of the way so builders can deliver useful solutions.
If you could see anyone in concert, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
It’s a tie between A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, and Run The Jewels. I am a life-long hip-hop addict and those three acts represent the beginning, middle, and now of my love of the form. RTJ has been my favorite act for the last several years and I hear they put on an amazing live show, so they might win out by a nose.
Is there anything additional you would like to share about your company?
We love working with RIoT and the community of entrepreneurs, developers, municipalities, and integrators that you bring together. Blues Wireless is here to be a resource as part of this community, so please feel free to reach out to us for technical advice or support, or for collaborating on your own efforts.
