Data modeler

Sep 06, 2023

United States - Remote

Do you want to be part of the transition to a zero-carbon economy? Buildings are responsible for 40% of the world’s energy footprint. Gridium makes SaaS software that helps people run their buildings better, at lower cost and with less energy.

Our products run on data. We ingest data from hundreds of sources so that we can analyze it, surface the most important information, and present it in beautiful and easy-to-use visualizations.

We're looking for a US-based data modeler who can help expand our services to new geographical territories. The role will focus on modeling utility pricing rules. Prices for electricity vary according to a complex set of rules designed to match supply and demand. It is critical for Gridium to accurately model these pricing rules so that we can precisely measure the savings from our customers’ energy efficiency efforts.

You will work with the product delivery team to expand Gridium’s geographic reach by modeling pricing rules from new utilities. Key responsibilities include:

  • Reading utility rate documents to understand how utilities structure their pricing rules.
  • Modeling utility pricing rules in spreadsheets and in a custom modeling language.
  • Using example bills to validate our understanding of how utility pricing rules work.
  • Documenting utility pricing rules clearly so that cross-functional teams including sales and customer success can better support customers.
  • Managing a data capture team in their ongoing effort to update Gridium’s database of utility price information.


Ideal candidates will meet the following requirements:

  • College degree in a quantitative field.
  • Excellent spreadsheet skills and a demonstrated ability to model complex domains in a way that lends itself to long-term maintainability.
  • Some programming experience is required. Scripting languages such as JavaScript or even spreadsheet macros are fine.
  • Strong communication skills, particularly in written communication.
  • A love of working with numbers and strong attention to detail.

You do not have to have prior experience in energy or utility rates, although any such experience may be a plus. This is an entry level position for someone who is eager to learn.


The position comes with salary, stock options, 401(k) match, a great health plan, vision, dental, generous parental leave, and a flexible vacation policy — we want you to take the time off you need so that you are happy and productive.
