Virtual
FULL_TIME

About Us

Our mission is to be the Distributed Energy Platform that fulfills the promise of the energy transition. We create and manage virtual power plants that help the grid meet demand. Our business model directly contributes to the sun-setting of coal power plants, to grid stability during energy crises (like the 2020 blackout in California and the one last year in Texas), and to the efficacy of distributed energy resources like solar and wind.

Voltus is a remote and virtual company, distributed across US, Canada, and abroad with many team members in New York, San Francisco, Boston, Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington, DC and other cities. This role can be based anywhere in the US/Canada.

The Role

Are you interested in building the technical foundation of the worldwide transition to clean energy? Join our product-focused and mission-driven team! 

We are looking for creative and motivated engineers in a variety of skill sets to help build, maintain, architect, and envision the future of our rapidly scaling data platform and product offerings.

Our team reduces the enormous complexity of quantifying and compensating thousands of participants in demand response events to a streamlined and centralized data processing pipeline, warehouse, API, and UI. We build and maintain products underpinning telemetry, performance calculations, forecasts, credits, earnings, savings, and payments between grid providers, channel partners, and Voltus customers. 

We are responsible for:

  • An immutable warehouse with billions of records (and climbing!)
  • Data pipelines that process hundreds of millions of rows daily. 
  • APIs that make this data available in milliseconds
  • UIs that translate this complex information into actionable applications for Voltans and external customers alike
  • The core financial data model unifying the fast-growing universe of energy products at Voltus.
  • The core telemetry model unifying billions of power readings across thousands of IOT devices
  • The core performance calculation platform translating customer participation into quantifiable metrics

You might...

  • Have a solid fluency with modern programming languages (We primarily use Python)
  • Have a deep understanding of SQL database design and queries
  • Have experience or interest in scaling data-intensive pipelines and systems
  • Think of yourself as 'full stack', or strictly data engineer - we're hiring for both!
  • Be hungry to ramp up your expertise in the complex world of energy markets (no prior experience necessary)

We are a distributed, friendly team! If you are excited by the opportunity to impact the way a critical company system is designed, implemented, and supported, we invite you to apply.

At Voltus, we are proud to be an equal opportunity employer because we recognize that a diverse organization begins with a diverse candidate pool. This means we do not tolerate discrimination of any kind and are committed to providing equal employment opportunities regardless of your gender identity, race, nationality, religion, age, sexual orientation, veteran status, disability status, or marital status.
