Equilibrium Energy is a well-funded, Series A clean energy startup backed by some of the most prominent institutional investors in climate. We are building a digital native power company operating at the intersection of grid variability, market volatility, economic optimization, commercial structuring, and risk management, across the end-to-end power value chain. Our mission is to accelerate our collective path to climate, energy, and societal equilibriums. Our goal is to become one of the next-generation, digital-native, end-to-end global clean power companies that reshapes the energy industry.
New colleagues will share our vision that a next-generation energy company must be built from the ground up on deep industry expertise combined with an unwavering commitment to modern digital approaches. We design our commercial strategies, operational approaches, and product suites so as to best leverage data-driven insights, automated workflows, ML-infused pipelines, and fully automated decision engines. These capabilities are enabled by our progressively modern software stack and engineering best practices, which in turn provide the scalable platform we need to put a serious dent in carbon emissions. We’re looking for collaborative, talented, passionate and resourceful folks to join our team and help us lay the foundation for our important mission and ambitious plan.
Equilibrium was founded with a vision for building a company where innovation, collaboration, optimization, machine learning, and data science power all aspects of our algorithmic decision-making. We are looking for a staff / sr staff research scientist with deep power markets domain expertise to accelerate the design and delivery of the autonomous energy market participation, asset optimization, and valuation products that will drive the future success of our company.
As a key member of our energy sciences group, you will play an active role in a) cultivating our culture of experimentation, insights discovery, and incremental delivery, b) facilitating research into state of the art operations research & optimization techniques, c) helping to identify, recruit, train, and mentor members of our growing team of exceptional scientists, and d) partnering with our engineers, product managers, computational scientists, analysts, and commercial team to influence the near to medium term product roadmap.
Use research insights to shape product direction: Influence product and engineering roadmaps through presentation of research insights, experimental results, and model performance metrics, in order to evolve organizational direction. Initiate and lead cross-functional engagements to surface, prioritize, formulate, and structure complex and ambiguous challenges where advanced novel scientific research can have outsized company impact.
Optimization algorithms formulation & research: Tackle complex scientific & operations research problems by researching published academic literature, surveying industry techniques & intuition, and executing hands-on experimental testing & modeling. Solve ambiguous energy domain-specific optimal bidding & risk management problems through novel and innovative quantitative solutions and architectures. Lead medium to long term research projects that advance the state-of-the-art in energy asset management and financial trading performance.
Energy market analytics: Develop models and tools to analyze the behavior of electricity markets, including power prices, ancillary services dispatch, grid network models, transmission outages & constraints, and optimal power flows.
