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 a senior data scientist with deep experience working with high frequency physical sensor data. You will design, implement, and help productionize multi-modal fault classification and prediction models that operate on resource-constrained edge compute systems.
Gridware's core product relies on robust models to detect and predict the types of physical fault phenomena that can lead to a grid outage or wildfire ignition. Using a plethora of data sources, ranging from experiments at our physical test site to sensors deployed on real distribution grids, we centrally fit models that are then deployed to unique inference and learning environments. To continuously improve our product performance and innovate on the data challenges, we're looking for a creative scientist with a strong track record in execution.
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:
