Gridware

Gridware’s mission is to create a future where suburban wildfires are a thing of the past. We provide a truly full-stack (hardware + firmware + software) solution for real-time monitoring of America's power distribution grid. The system centers around low-cost hardware platforms that are easily and permanently deployed to power poles. The platform detects and predicts faults that ignite wildfires, expedites repairs during power outages, and helps utilities demonstrate risk reduction to regulators through comprehensive asset health profiles.

Gridware is a privately-held company with funding from top VCs including True Ventures, Fifty Years, and Y-combinator, with the support from California Energy Commission.

We operate in Walnut Creek, California.

Gridware is on a mission to create a future without deadly wildfires. We’re a startup building hardware and software that monitors the power grid to prevent and detect faults that lead to wildfire ignition . (More about Gridware below). To make that happen, we’re currently looking for a mechanical research engineer to join our growing team. Why do we need you? We’re manufacturing and deploying our first fleet of critical infrastructure monitoring devices to detect real world fault events that lead to wildfires. As an early team member you will have the opportunity to set the foundation for at-edge systems for protecting the power grid and preventing the next big blaze. The research you do and prototypes that you build will change the capabilities of our system which will, in turn, influence how the grid is designed, operated, and upgraded. You’ll work side-by-side with a highly driven team of mechanical/electrical/software engineers, researchers, and data...
