About Our Company
Are you excited about machine learning? Interested in contributing to a more sustainable future? Myst AI is a startup that uses artificial intelligence to help energy companies better predict the future in order to increase renewable energy adoption and reduce carbon emissions. We are building a platform that helps companies to create highly accurate forecasts at an unprecedented scale. We work with a dozen leading energy companies in Europe and North America, often helping them save millions of dollars a year while reducing their carbon emissions. 

We raised our Series A from top Silicon Valley investors in the summer of 2020 and we’re looking for a summer intern to join our Data Science team. You’ll be joining a group of people committed to positive environmental impact from a wide set of backgrounds, ranging from academia and nonprofits to technology companies like Google, Apple, and Nest. We are committed to creating a culture in which people can be themselves and we strongly believe in building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive team.

Internship Opportunity
Our goal is for you to work on challenging problems and make meaningful contributions to our software product. You will work directly with one of our data scientists, offering a well-guided and structured opportunity to learn directly from them, while also participating as a member of the larger Data Science team. We are keen to share what we’ve learned from working at top technology companies, as well as all of the best practices we've built upon together at Myst. 

Some projects you may work on include:
* Developing state-of-the-art machine learning models for clients
* Testing new optimization methods for hyperparameter tuning and feature selection
* Building new tools for analyzing and monitoring production model performance

The internship will be remote, with the option of joining the team in San Francisco depending on COVID-19 conditions. The internship will be full-time for 8-12 weeks sometime between May 1 - September 30, depending on your availability. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until March 15, 2021 11:59pm PT. Compensation will be competitive with other Bay Area internships in the tech industry.
