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.

About the Team

Embedded design is literally our eyes and ears. We enhance the way our customers use electrical resources within buildings. The delivery of energy intelligence relies on knowing what’s physically happening in a building. These measurement points will be crafted by passionate people like you.

At Verdigris, you will explore rich energy datasets through our advanced IoT connected sensors. You will have a unique opportunity as an embedded engineer to extend our understanding of buildings by improving the capabilities of our sensors. We invite you to become a member of Verdigris and join our mission to preserve the environment we live in.
