    SilviaTerra is excited to be hiring a full-time software developer as the 10th member of our team. Help us build the future of precision forestry. Our clients include NGOs, state and national governmental agencies, and several of the largest forest landowners in the world.

    Our work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, and the BBC. Through our collaboration with Microsoft as an AI for Earth grantee we’ve been able to create the first ever high resolution nationwide forest inventory, with data for every acre in America. Looking forward, we believe that recent advancements in remote sensing, cloud computing, and AI - combined with deep domain expertise - puts us in a unique position to build the future of forestry. If we ship even half of the things we have planned for 2020, it will be a wild year and we can’t do it without you.

    In this role, you’ll work closely with project managers to help design the next generation of forestry software. We’re a small team, so you’ll be contributing at all levels of the process - from initial UI/UX sketches to phone calls with users in the field about their experience with the new feature.

    SilviaTerra is a fully remote company, loosely working US hours. Some travel will be required to company meetings (3-4 weeks per year).

    Required Skills + Experience

    A successful candidate will have the following:

    • Experience with Python, Docker, and Linux based development

    • Front end experience - can design product UI/UX. HTML/CSS/Javascript. Has googled “how to vertically center a div” before at least a few times (and knows they will have to again!)

    • Ability to manage their own work remotely

    • A highly organized, communicative and collaborative work style

    Desired Skills + Experience

    We'd be extra excited if you have:

    • Experience with React/Redux, Django

    • Experience building mobile applications

    • Dev Ops experience. Digital Ocean/AWS/Azure, CI/CD.

    • General interest in forestry. For this position, we won’t need you to be able to distinguish between a Pine and Spruce (hint: it’s the needles!). We have a separate Biometrics Team for that. However, we hope you can get excited about nature or, at the very least, a good game of Photosynthesis the Board Game.

    To Apply

    Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and resume to [email protected] We will begin reviewing applications immediately and until the position is filled. We know your time is valuable, and we hope to respond to all applicants with a firm answer as quickly as possible.

    Gridium is looking for a full stack engineer to help us build the next generation of energy and operations software tools for buildings. You’ll participate in evolving our system for better resiliency, scalability, and transparency.

    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 full stack engineer to design, develop, and scale our services. At Gridium we manage quite a bit of data, pouring in daily from hundreds of thousands of electricity meters. We need help connecting new data sources and growing our web applications to support ever-greater volumes of data. That’s where you come in.

    About the job

    Our stack lives on AWS and includes Docker, Postgres, Python, Java, Elasticsearch, and Ember.js. For this role, we’re looking for someone with strong Python and relational database experience. Experience with Java, Selenium, writing web scrapers, or a background as a QA engineer are all pluses. Experience with any modern front-end framework is also useful.

    You should be comfortable with consuming 3rd party APIs, ETL processes, data validation, and debugging across multiple systems. You should be able to make good decisions (and explain them!) about when to build something custom vs taking advantage of AWS and/or open source options.

    You should have strong experience with Python, SQL, and writing unit tests. You should be self-directed, responsible, and committed to delivering efficient, well-documented, and well-tested code.

    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. For example, you might trace a data issue from a 3rd party API to a Java parsing task to a relational database, then explain what’s wrong and how to fix it.

    • Do you enjoy a fast-moving startup environment?

    • Are you an expert in debugging services with lots of moving parts?

    • Are you excited about what you can do with AWS products and services?

    • Are you obsessed with data, and experienced with data modeling?

    • Do you want to truly own the systems you work on?

    • Are you comfortable working in a remote environment?

    • Do you enjoy diving deep into complex systems to track down a data issue?

    If so, Gridium is the place for you.

    Requirements

    • Strong experience with Python.

    • Experience writing SQL and tuning relational database queries.

    • Proficiency creating integrations with external APIs.

    • Ability to design systems for observability and effective monitoring.

    • Must currently reside in the United States and have the legal right to work in the United States; must be available to travel for four days each quarter.

    About Gridium

    Gridium is a growing, venture-backed SaaS software provider for buildings. Our products help commercial property owners manage all aspects of their buildings, from energy to work orders. We serve buildings of every shape and size, deploying a range of statistical and machine learning techniques to help develop energy efficiency strategies, streamline operations, and delight tenants.

    Of course, spending time face-to-face is important, so once a quarter we pick a city and meet up for several days of highly productive and highly fun planning and doing (and eating and recreating). Past trips include Palm Springs, Breckenridge, Chicago, Austin, and more.

    We have a casual work environment where everyone’s ideas and opinions matter. We are committed to work-life balance and offer everyone opportunities to learn, experiment, and grow. Since creative, enthusiastic employees are the basis for our success, we take great care and pride in how we attract, hire, and support our employees.

    Benefits

    The position comes with salary, stock options, 401(k) match, a great health plan, vision, dental, generous parental leave, and a flexible vacation policy — we want you to take the time off you need so that you are happy and productive.
