Job Description


Our electrical infrastructure sits at an inflection point, soon to be overwhelmed by rapidly increasing demand and aging, vulnerable infrastructure. Energy costs will continue to rise and outages will become more frequent unless we rapidly transition from our current centrally managed model, to a decentralized and intelligent grid.

DEP’s mission is to make clean, resilient, and renewable energy systems accessible to everyone by developing intelligent software that automates the design and deployment of ultra-efficient decentralized micro grids. The future of energy is decentralized and we're building the team that will make it a reality.
