Job Description

Crusoe Energy is on a mission to unlock value in stranded energy resources through the power of computation.

Take a look at what we do! - 

We aim to align the long term interests of the climate with the future of global computing infrastructure. As data centers consume an exponentially growing power footprint to deliver technology to all connected devices, we are inspired by making sure that the energy meeting that demand is sourced in an environmentally responsible fashion. Crusoe co-locates mobile data centers with stranded energy resources, like flared gas and underloaded renewables, to deliver low-cost, carbon-reducing distributed computing solutions. Crusoe Cloud is a managed cloud services platform powered by stranded energy that enables climate-friendly innovation in computationally intensive fields including artificial intelligence, graphics rendering and computational biology.

Our values drive our work from thinking like a mountaineer, our relentless commitment to resource efficiency and tapping into our collective genius. At Crusoe, you will be challenged to do the best work of your entire life and to be and become your best self. Our teams are empowered to tackle hard problems that benefit our customers, grow our business and create a positive impact in reducing global emissions. 

About the Role

As a Software Engineer at Crusoe, you’ll join a lean (we’re ~300 people total, but only 40 engineers), diverse, and mission-driven team building working at the forefront of distributed system technologies across cloud computing and bitcoin mining. You’ll have the opportunity to work on a range of projects across our Platform and our Cloud teams. Your expertise will be instrumental in the design and scaling of our carbon-reducing operating model, as well as the management of critical hardware, software and network components or our computing and bitcoin operations.

You’ll collaborate with other engineers to build and maintain scalable and highly available fault-tolerant distributed systems at scale, build products and tools from the ground up that will be used by customers around the world, triage bugs and solve issues in production, and work with product owners and other stakeholders to iterate on new features.  

While we’re still a young company, the Class of 2024 will mark our fifth university class, so we’re accustomed to offering intimate mentorship from industry experts and plenty of opportunity for impact, responsibility, and ownership.  Over the last two years, we’ve added new grads to the engineering team from Harvard, CMU, Berkeley, MIT, Stanford, Caltech, Washington, UPenn, NYU, and Brown.  

If you have a passion for the energy industry, technology, environmental stewardship and innovative solutions, we want to hear from you.
