Carbon Lighthouse is looking for an adaptable, self-motivated, Senior Backend Software Engineer to work and grow with us to envision and build out our software platform and accelerate environmental impact. Along the way, you’ll learn all about energy efficiency, solar, real estate markets, construction, and probably get your hands dirty (or at least dusty) on site visits.
We’re looking for people to both innovate and expand our technology and energy service by creating solutions that enable our internal Engineering users to analyze and quantify energy opportunities. This role is responsible for leading improvements the accuracy, speed, and scope of our technology by building scalable thermodynamic models and creating robust analytical tools for Engineering users that leverage the large datasets Carbon Lighthouse captures to evaluate building energy consumption (e.g. timeseries data, metadata, unstructured data). Senior Software Engineers on the Model Development group directly influence our operations, focusing on improvements like: increasing the depth and breadth of our models, implementing methods that automate analyses, and identifying data requirements. As a member of the Model Development Group, they collaborate heavily with Model Development Data Scientists and Engineers (thermodynamicists) and work closely with our Software Team to develop and deploy production code.
You should have a bachelor’s degree in computer science (or similar), 5+ years of professional development experience, and be excited by complex and open-ended engineering problems. You genuinely enjoy working on collaborative teams, and want to be involved in large scale challenges that require long term effort. While this role involves significant software development work, you will also spend time interacting with Carbon Lighthouse mechanical engineers, project managers, and energy performance engineers to connect our software to our real-world mission.
The role is based at our headquarters in downtown San Francisco, but may require occasional travel to our satellite offices or client sites.
