X is Alphabet’s moonshot factory. We are a diverse group of inventors and entrepreneurs who build and launch technologies that aim to improve the lives of millions, even billions, of people. Our goal: 10x impact on the world’s most intractable problems, not just 10% improvement. We approach projects that have the aspiration and riskiness of research with the speed and ambition of a startup.
We are a team working to rapidly decarbonize the electric grid. Our mission is to help create a shared understanding of what is happening on the grid for everyone who is involved in building, managing and using it.
How you will make 10x Impact:
- Lead the development of electric grid-based optimization solutions (e.g. solutions to improve the resiliency, economics, sustainability, and equity of the power grid) in both the transmission and distribution domains
- Provide thought-leadership internally and externally
- Drive and own strategic programs that are large and complex, span multiple organizations, and have a direct measurable business impact on what are often product area or company level OKRs.
- Set strategy and objectives, drive organizational change, and solve problems holistically independent of organizational boundaries.
- Propose, design, develop, and evaluate software and analytics-based solutions (e.g., ML, edge devices, cloud, etc.,.) to meet customers' needs
- Work with a team of engineers, scientists, product managers, and grid operators to transition prototypes into production
- Engage closely with existing and prospective partners on new technologies that transform how the grid is planned and operated
- Explore the energy technology landscape and do fast evaluation of ideas and concepts
What you should have:
- BS degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Data Science, Statistics or equivalent practical experience
- Experience and in-depth knowledge of Machine Learning/Deep Learning/Computer Vision
- Proficiency in algorithm design and coding
- Ability to execute and iterate quickly with ever-changing problem sets and environments
It’d be great if you also had these:
- Research or industry experience in ML systems, cloud computing, mobile development, or IoT projects
- Solid problem solving and cross-team communication skills
- Knowledge of recent development in energy-related technologies such as microgrids, battery storage, industrial internet of things, or inverters
- Interested in business or product development in a startup-like environment
