Join us in the fight against climate change.

We’re hiring for the following positions:

Data Engineer

Who we are looking for:

Everything kWh does depends on the quality and quantity of solar data in our data vault. As a member of our 5-person Data Engineering team, you will be leading the charge as you parse operational and financial data from remote APIs and client data file dumps in a variety of formats, and integrate it into the Vault.

What you can look forward to:

  • Writing code to output cleaned and summarized data in the form needed for data science, statistics, data visualizations, and front-end website features
  • Optimizing queries for good performance on very large data sets
  • Designing database schema, or redesigning them to meet changing needs
  • Automating, testing, and scaling out the data pipeline
  • Working closely with a product manager on a small team to prioritize features and estimate implementation times

Required skills: 

  • Excellent Python coding skills
  • Fluency with SQL (We use Postgres, but other flavors are acceptable)
  • Fluency with Linux server command line environment

What you’ll need to do the job well:

  • A curiosity and drive to constantly learn new languages, skills, and tools
  • A dedication to quality, craftsmanship, truth and accuracy in reporting
  • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment as the solar industry is constantly growing and changing
  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science or equivalent real-world experience
  • If you aren’t already familiar with the solar industry, you should be excited to learn about it

Please send your cover letter, resume, and github to people@kwhanalytics.com

Sr. Director of Business Development

Who we are looking for:

We are looking for an entrepreneurial ambassador for our financial product, the Solar Revenue Put . You will work closely with the CEO and be given the responsibility of both developing the overall customer engagement strategy as well as its effective execution. To help you be successful, we have assembled a talented team and built up a clientele that includes some of the biggest investor names in the industry.

What you can look forward to:

  • Joint leadership in development efforts for a brand new line of business
  • Interfacing with solar developers and financiers to close transactions
  • Explaining the value proposition of the industry’s newest tool for cost reduction
  • Working with a team of experienced solar veterans committed to helping you succeed
  • Solving a critical problem that has hindered the solar industry since its inception

What you likely need to do the job well:

  • Project finance experience. Ideally you are fluent in the language of solar project finance and completely unfazed by the term “partnership flip”
  • Your background is some mix of business development, origination, or banking, and you have a knack for structuring deals
  • A strong network in solar. The industry may have grown 100x over the last 10 years, but you know that it’s still a relatively small community of people who make things happen
  • Willingness to roll up your sleeves. We are a start-up and need people who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty (like firing up Excel to test a financial model or picking up a phone to call someone you don’t already know)

Please send your cover letter and LinkedIn page to people@kwhanalytics.com

Data Scientist

Who we are looking for:

We are building a first-of-its-kind predictive model that can accurately forecast the energy output of solar power projects, and we need you to lead the development of the model. We need a self starter who has a strong quantitative background, great communication skills, and ideally an expertise in weather. To help you be successful, you will have access to the largest database of historical solar project performance to feed your model.

What you can look forward to:

  • You’ll be responsible for comparing alternative modeling methodologies and choosing the best tools for the job
  • Continuously seeking new ways to validate and improve the accuracy of the model
  • Delivering well-supported analysis with uncertainty / confidence metrics that we can stand by

Required skills:

  • Excellent Python coding skills
  • Excellent command of statistics — random variables, statistical tests, confidence intervals, etc.

What you likely need to do the job well:

  • Fluency with a variety of statistical modeling approaches, and ability to clearly explain the trade-offs and why a certain one is best for a certain problem
  • Experience working with weather and weather models is strongly preferred
  • You know the difference between testing a hypothesis and just going on a fishing expedition
  • A track record of spotting relevant trends in noisy data sets
  • Dedication to quality, craftsmanship, truth and accuracy in reporting

Please send your resume to people@kwhanalytics.com. If possible, please include a link to an example of a data analysis or prediction you have done (for example a Kaggle contest), along with the reasoning behind your approach.
