Gridware is on a mission to create a future without wildland fires. We’re a startup building hardware and software that monitors the power grid to prevent and detect faults that lead to wildfire ignition. (More about Gridware below).
To make that happen, we’re currently looking for an enthusiastic data scientist who is detail oriented and interested in working in a fast-paced, mission critical environment. You will be the first to know when our device fleets detect critical power line faults and design data-driven decision frameworks to address real-time events.
We’re at an exciting point where we are ramping up field deployments of our power grid monitoring devices and are establishing cutting-edge data analysis processes to ingest large quantities of time-series data in answering critical questions about the grid. As the first line of visibility into ground-truth field data, we rely on data scientists to detect and understand patterns or anomalies originating from deployed systems. This insight directly informs our core product, research direction, design decisions, and operations tactics.
Although we do not require candidates to submit a cover letter, candidates who wish to have their application stand out are invited to write a cover letter outlining one or all of the following things in a bullet-point format:
We offer competitive benefits that help employees to thrive and grow. These benefits include:
We are a mission-driven team passionate about saving lives and creating a future without wildfires.
Save Lives Everyday, Everywhere
Prevent catastrophic failures by building a highly adaptable platform capable of answering any question about critical infrastructure.
We provide a full-stack (hardware + firmware + software) solution for real-time monitoring of America's power distribution grid. Our low-cost hardware platforms are deployed to power poles, where they:
Gridware’s technology is designed to unlock essential values for other adjacent verticals. Our unique positioning allows us to solve some of the world’s most burning challenges - from helping policy makers make data-driven infrastructure decisions to helping farmers overcome micro-climate challenges. While others turn a blind eye to these aged and highly-regulated industries, we at Gridware believe it’s our duty to find win-for-all scenarios that lead to a prosperous future for coming generations.
