Job Description

EnergyHub is seeking a Data Scientist for our Advanced Grid Services and Analytics team: someone who can build and maintain large-scale statistical models that turn billions of data points into insights, forecasts, and optimal device control.  Your work will reach thermostats, EV chargers, solar panels, and other smart energy devices in homes and businesses across the country, aggregating them into grid-aware virtual power plants that stabilize the electric grid and enable its continued decarbonization. 

As a Data Scientist you will:

  • Extend our industry-leading analytics platform for distributed energy resources (DERs), including
    • Digital twin models of air conditioners, grid-interactive water heaters, EV chargers, batteries, smart inverters, and other DERs
    • Load, generation, and capacity forecasting models to provide utilities and our own control algorithms unparalleled visibility into the grid edge
    • Advanced grid services, including battery and water heater load shift services, solar curtailment, and EV managed charging
    • Our real-time control platform, which turns grid service objectives, real-time data, and forecasts into optimal, multiscale DER control
  • Write, test, and maintain high-performance python code that runs in our mission-critical production system
  • Architect, implement, and provide real-time operational support for our suite of advanced grid services
  • Use physical and statistical modeling techniques to enhance the quality of our device and meter data
  • Design in-depth analyses of device, customer, and grid service performance data in partnership with our client success and market services teams
  • Collaborate with our engineering team to design API integrations with our DER partners, based on electrical engineering principles and grid service needs


  • Advanced degree in a quantitative field (PhD preferred)
  • Strong fundamentals in one or more of the related areas: machine learning, statistics, optimization. Experience using those skills to design and implement novel solutions to real-world problems.
  • Experience using the Python scientific stack (numpy, pandas, scikit-learn, scipy, statsmodels) to clean, filter, aggregate, transform, visualize and then model data
  • Significant team project work in either production-facing commercial application development (preferred), open source contributions or large academic projects
  • Strong oral and written communication skills in English, particularly around technical subject matter

Nice to haves:

  • Experience with our tech stack: MongoDB, RabbitMQ, Docker, AWS (EC2, S3, Cloudwatch), and Travis CI
  • Knowledge of electric power systems, including utility systems and equipment, power engineering, DERs, and energy markets
  • Background in electrical engineering or control theory.
  • Experience maintaining and troubleshooting real-time, customer-facing software applications
  • A passion for clean energy!
