Electrical Engineer

Moffett Field, CA 94035

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 buildings. 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.
