Solution Architect

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 enrich human life through responsive energy intelligence. We see our work as a critical step toward inventing ambient intelligence. In the future, buildings will become autonomous, sustainable environments responsive to their inhabitants.

Verdigris is an intelligent electricity monitoring and notification system for mission-critical commercial facilities. Our sensors enable artificial intelligence to develop unique energy insights. We can even predict unseen equipment failures and automate energy management.

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.
