    • Experience developing graph/network models
    • Economics background and/or optimization experience
    • Experience in the utility, green energy, cleantech, regulatory, or automotive industries
    • Experience with the growth trajectory of a small start-up
    • Experience with git and collaborative software development
We are headquartered in San Francisco, but we embrace the virtual office and are continuing to grow our team across the United States. 
Salary Range
