Mid Level

Overview: <p><strong>Who are you?</strong></p> <p>You are an outstanding Software Engineer with exceptional abstract mathematics skills. You are a strong individual contributor who enjoys working autonomously and solving complex problems. Complex programming in multiple languages, imaginary numbers, optimization techniques, non-linear equations and object-oriented designs are well within your area of expertise.</p> <p>This is an exciting opportunity to be deeply involved in implementing new solutions to how we can accelerate the integration of renewable energy. This is a chance to be on the forefront of new technology, developing our core intellectual property.</p> <p><strong>What&rsquo;s in it for you?</strong></p> <p><strong>Challenges. </strong>The electrical power grid is a lifeline to millions of people. Quite literally, this is a system that cannot go down when it comes to hospitals, traffic controls and more. Your challenge is to enhance the data science. It&rsquo;s programming, building the tools and the mechanisms, generating the algorithms and the analytics.</p> <p><strong>Personal and professional satisfaction. </strong>You want to do meaningful work. You don&rsquo;t just want to build and analyze things, you want to directly contribute to technology solutions that matter.</p>
Responsibilities: <p><strong>What will our new Software Engineer work on? You will:</strong></p> <ul> <li>Undertake quantitative development of sophisticated power systems algorithms that effectively take what amounts to Small Data and generates Big Data.</li> <li>Leverage that Big Data by analyzing and distilling it in ways that are meaningful to the people who are tasked with deploying renewables</li> <li>Develop algorithms that incorporate dynamic changes to grid conditions in real-time without skipping a beat.</li> <li>Develop ways to optimize renewable energy on the grid given a stochastic understanding of what will happen next.</li> <li>Interface with advanced modeling languages and optimization engines. Power systems are complex both literally (as in imaginary numbers) and figuratively!</li> </ul>
Requirements: <p><strong>Here&rsquo;s what you bring:</strong></p> <ul> <li>The education. You have a degree in Computer Sciences.</li> <li>The experience. You have 2+ years programming experience with a solid grounding &nbsp;in data structures, advanced algorithm design, OOD, and sound architecture..</li> <li>The technical expertise. You have extensive hands-on experience with implementing numerical methods in multiple programming and modelling languages. You are a fast learner and can easily master Python, NumPy and 4th Generation ML software.</li> <li>The passion. You are equally passionate about clean tech as you are about quality coding and mathematics.</li> <li>The vision. You can focus on the big picture and the details. Robust, reliable and scalable is your motto.</li> <li>The communication. You have exceptional written and oral communication skills. You are a strong presenter.</li> <li>The energy. You thrive in a high volume, fast paced environment.</li> <li>The innovation. You have the ability to anticipate problems and provide creative, quick - and reliable - solutions to complex problems.</li> <li>The mathematical skills. Calculus. (That says it all really.)</li> <li>The beneficial (but not mandatory) knowledge. You have an understanding of power systems, microgrids, energy pricing and demand.</li> </ul>
