Embedded 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 think buildings will become autonomous, sustainable environments responsive to their inhabitants and see our work as critical to inventing ambient intelligence. Our product is a SaaS for high-end commercial buildings. We deploy machine-learning sensors and generate powerful recommendations to predict failure of critical equipment, track energy demand, and inform efficiency projects.

Extraordinary outcomes need exceptional teams. We deeply believe in the power of growth mindsets 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.
