Climate Connect invites applications for a Meteorological Data Engineer.

 

Company Profile:

Climate Connect, a Series A funded start-up, is on the mission to make energy green and cheap using clever software. It applies Artificial Intelligence (AI) approaches such as machine learning to a range of opportunities within the evolving energy ecosystem. Founded by Cambridge University alumni, the company has a team of software engineers, data scientists and energy analysts spread across 3 main locations: Delhi (India), Pune (India), Amsterdam (Netherlands).

 

Climate Connect builds forecasting and optimization software for renewable energy and storage technologies to enable asset owners to see greater returns from their investments. This can be achieved through smart analytics to improve operational efficiency; dynamic forecasting to reduce the costs of variable production; or when aligned with our proprietary price forecasting, increase revenue by selling directly to energy markets. In sum, Climate Connect builds software that removes middle-men within the current energy paradigm and returns value to the owners of generative and distributive capacity. Across almost every sector - transport, housing, even food - AI is having a revolutionary and localizing effect, and Climate Connect is at the epicentre of this transformation in energy.
