Full-time

One reason we like working here is that we enjoy spending our time on meaningful problems. Our mission at Verdigris is to sustain and enrich human life through responsive energy intelligence. We see our work as a critical step toward inventing ambient intelligence.  In the near future, we believe buildings will become autonomous, sustainable environments responsive to their inhabitants.

Our product is an intelligent electricity monitoring and notification system for mission-critical commercial facilities. Our sensors enable artificial intelligence to automate energy management and predict unseen equipment failures.

We believe extraordinary outcomes need exceptional teams. We believe deeply in the power of a growth mindset for individuals and team development. Don't worry if you don't understand energy analytics and facilities automation just yet. As a fast learner and collaborative teammate, you are ready to handle that challenge and more.

About the Data Science Team
As a Data Scientist at Verdigris, you’ll be generating business value from our unstructured data lake. You’ll be responsible for taking projects from research to production. Projects on our roadmap include energy forecasting, motor fault detection, disaggregation, anomaly detection, energy storage optimization, and building controls among others. In the meantime, you’ll be collaborating with all team members from growth to hardware, to full-stack, to customer success. Come help us shed light in this untapped data!
