Gridium is looking for a devops engineer to help us build the next generation of energy and operations software tools for buildings.
Buildings are responsible for 40% of the world's energy footprint. A typical building contains thousands of pieces of equipment, sensors, and interconnections. Gridium makes software that helps people run their buildings better, at lower cost and with less energy.
We're looking for a US-based engineer to design, develop, and scale our backend services. At Gridium we manage quite a bit of data, pouring in daily from hundreds of thousands of electric and gas meters. We need help gathering data, running analytics, and making the results available to our web applications. That's where you come in.
About the job
Our stack lives on AWS and includes Docker, Postgres, Java, Python, and Ember.js. This job is for someone who wants to own and drive the operations of an exciting startup. You will be responsible for developing and managing complex systems that process large amounts of data every day.
We are a small team, and you should expect to work closely with both engineers and non-technical staff. We need someone who is self-directed and a great problem-solver, but also able to ask good questions and collaborate effectively with teammates.
