Join the VPS Team

Are you passionate about solving real world problems?

How does one revolutionize a model of power delivery that finds itself rooted in the innovations of Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla? That’s where you come in. VPS is building a team of diverse software engineers, hardware engineers, data scientists, and designers who share a passion for solving multidisciplinary problems. We need your help to build a software driven smart grid, that will transform how we use power. But hard problems should be the ones that you are most passionate about. Sounds interesting? Get in touch, we love talking to talented people.

Current Openings


  • Algorithm Scientist Internship (Summer 2018)

    How does one revolutionize a model of power delivery that finds itself rooted in the era of Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla? Simply put, it isn't a one person job. VPS is a growing team of diverse software engineers, hardware engineers, data scientists, and designers who share a passion for solving multidisciplinary problems. Building a software-driven smart grid that will transform how power is managed isn’t easy. But hard problems are the ones that we are most passionate about. It is simply who we are.
    As an algorithm scientist Intern, you will be designing, developing, prototyping algorithms and implementing them in production.

    Responsibilites:

    • Work with the data science team, as well as cross functionally with other teams including developers, product management and QA
    • Analyze power data from data centers
    • Create and validate models for prediction or classification
    • Design algorithms that use these models to control elements of the datacenter
    • Implement these algorithms in production code using functional programming

    Requirements:

    • Hold or currently pursuing a bachelor’s, master’s or Ph.D. in a numerically demanding field such as Statistics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering, Science, Economics
    • Must have experience in design, development and implementation of optimization-based algorithms (e.g. linear programming)
    • Significant programming skill (in languages such as Python, Scala, Matlab, Java, R) and the ability to learn new software systems quickly
    • Knowledge of basic statistics, calculus, linear algebra (more is a plus!)
    • Experience with data analysis and mathematical modeling is a plus
    • Machine learning and/or time series analysis is a plus
    • Strong communication and collaboration skills
    • Ability to work and think independently
