Nexamp is seeking an experienced data scientist to work with diverse data sets including weather, equipment performance, solar energy generation, ISO grid pricing, and utility costs.  You will develop and refine models in Python in conjunction with area subject matter experts from across the company (in some cases based on Excel prior art).  Candidates should be comfortable both conceptualizing and implementing solutions. It's expected that you are familiar and comfortable with associated standard software tasks including testing, repository use, deployment to users and compute resources.

A typical challenge would involve modeling the energy output of a solar field over 30 years, including factors like climate change, equipment degradation and market cost of energy in order to recommend “repowering” (equipment upgrade) event timing.

  • Propose and test correlations that create business value
  • Implement one time and ongoing analyses or models using statistical, ML, and other approaches
  • Interact with existing analysts and design tooling in support of their operations, including evaluating existing modeling and display in Excel for upgrade and background deeper analysis opportunities
  • Collaborate with product management and software development on interfaces to core systems
  • Diagnose, debug and correct defects
  • Document implementations
  • Establish a data analysis group positioned for growth



The ideal candidate must be enthusiastic, self-motivated, hands-on, results-oriented, and a team player.

  • 3-5 years of model development experience
  • Data set modeling, analysis and visualization in Python family tooling ( Numpy, Scipy, Pandas, Tensorflow)
  • Data pipeline construction and curation
  • Strong listening, interaction and collaboration capabilities
  • Excellent written and spoken English communications skills
  • Past experience in related technologies is appreciated



Not only will you get to work with a group of innovative, dedicated, and motivated peers, you will also have access to all the benefits that Nexamp Offers! This includes: our competitive compensation package; a 401 (k) employer-match; health, dental, & vision insurance with company contribution; Flexible Paid Time Off; Commuter Benefits and Cell Phone Reimbursement.
