Who We Are: We’re an applied ML research company squarely focused on solving climate change.
We recently closed a $1.5M seed round
We’re backed by Y Combinator (W23)
Our founder previously started the Battery Data Science Team at Rivian
What We’re Building: We’re optimizing how large batteries in the grid buy and sell energy so that the grid can run on more renewables. To do this, we’re developing self-optimizing, self-adapting systems using reinforcement learning.
Why It Matters: As the grid increasingly shifts to renewable energy from wind and solar, more and more large battery systems are needed to store that energy for times when there’s huge demand for energy but not enough supply. As a society, we have all the physical battery technology needed to do this, but the software technology that figures out when and how to optimally use the battery is still in its infancy.
There’s going to be a 15x increase in these large batteries by 2030, and they’re currently growing at 50% YoY. As the grid is fundamentally altered by the addition of these batteries, we need to ensure that we’re utilizing all of them to their full potential.
We're hiring for a skilled, tech-forward ML engineer to design and enhance our core training, experimentation, and deployment infrastructure. The ideal candidate will have built this from scratch in a previous role for an applied ML application solving an important problem.
What You’ll Be Responsible For:
Design, build, and enhance core training infrastructure for our RL agents
Closely collaborate with research scientists working on new agent designs
Optimize large-scale training for cost, speed, and scale
Develop CI/CD pipelines and ETL pipelines for a variety of applications
2+ years of industry experience building ML training infrastructure from scratch
Experience architecting and implementing CI/CD pipelines
Collaborative, results-oriented mindset, ability to work in a fast-paced environment, strong communication skills
Frameworks: AWS (required), Kubernetes (required), Airflow (required), Docker (required), Spark (ideal), Pandas (required)
Languages: Python (required), C/C++ (ideal)
Willing and able to work in-person in Los Angeles
