Our mission is to make communities more resilient. We do this by pairing external data with artificial intelligence to identify areas of high risk and prevent catastrophic loss for utilities across the country. We are a team of close-knit engineers, entrepreneurs, and data nerds who obsess over problem solving, new technologies, and making a positive impact in our communities.

In this role, you'll work as part of a diverse team of ML Engineers, Software Engineers, and Product Designers to create, coordinate, organize, present, and deploy solutions against the most challenging problems facing utilities. You will balance the technical nature of the role with the ability to synthesize problems into simple solutions for non-technical users. This role will require research, analysis, and creative problem solving through proactive conversation and coordination across multiple internal and external stakeholders. Your primary motivation is to continue moving a project forward with tenacious attention to detail. You'll have a cursory knowledge of machine learning techniques, and immerse yourself in workflows and data.

This role requires a great deal of comfort with ambiguity and self direction. You view the right question as better than the right answer.
