Technical lead

Posted Nov 6

Headquarters: San Francisco, CA

Buildings are responsible for 40% of the world's energy footprint, and 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 are looking for someone to guide the engineering team creating the world’s best building operations tools. Someone who is passionate about developing industry-leading software using the most current tools and technologies. This is a role for a creative, collaborative technical leader excited to work in a small startup environment to help realize us realize our vision of an energy-efficient world.

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.

We are a distributed company, so all employees work remotely. Remote work allows us to find great people wherever they happen to be, and it allows you to structure your day flexibly and with minimal interruption so that you can get stuff done in the style that makes most sense for you.

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 Austin, LA, Tahoe, Park City, Denver, LA, Chicago, 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.
