Yes...that is a functional garage door in our Durham offices.

We value IQ and EQ with an insatiable curiosity to find better solutions.

We're tackling the Industrial Internet of Things space across businesses that touch all of our lives. We're achieving significant energy intensity reductions and financial gains in industries such as the cold chain.  We are backed by a San Francisco based PE fund, established an awesome board of directors and have taken four years of experience in industrial energy efficiency with a working SaaS product to launch 



What does this mean?  It means we’ve built a real-time ingestion and API platform to ingest and expose all kinds of sensor data ranging from electrical meters, accelerometers, temperature sensors and more.  We also integrate with third-party ERP systems parsing both big and small data for advanced analytics, dashboarding and production normalized operations.  Our team has helped lead the development of a Hadoop-based inventory datastore with Cloudera and we actively leverage Cassandra for time series data storage. While we use big tools, it's not just for the hell of it -- we're big believers in using the right tool for the job and are preparing for growth and scale. Oh, and we help predict squid landings on the coast of California.

I can't promise this will be the highest paying job in the region but we do offer stock options and a sense of ownership across truly challenging work.  We're located near Fullsteam Brewery in downtown Durham with a San Francisco office opening soon.  We like to believe we have a culture that values results and creative action, but we're not perfect.  It will not be the right fit for most people and you have to be able to function without a lot of handholding.  

If you're looking to get rich quick and want to build a social app, then we're probably not a great place to work.  We will push you harder then you've ever been pushed but you will quickly see the fruits of your labor making a huge impact by turning unsexy industries cool.  

If that sounds fun and you're willing to work hard, then we'd love to talk to you (and not a recruiter).



What we're currently looking for...

Front End Developer is a Durham, NC based startup looking for a high quality Front-End Engineer to join the team and help us continue to improve the energy management industry. We are looking for someone who is really passionate about their work and can be a big part of a small team. Someone who can be counted on to continue driving us forward. We are not the kind of startup that expects you to work insane hours or sleep at your desk but we do need someone who understands how a start up works and is willing to be a part of the sometimes crazy ride.
