WattTime is working on an ambitious project to estimate emissions from power plants around the world using satellite imagery and we want your help getting us there. This role is a unique opportunity to impact significant emissions reduction efforts across industries globally and with the speed only cutting edge technology and collaboration makes possible.
We have a strong base: We work on this project in partnership with TransitionZero, a collaborative effort we began in 2019 thru a Google AI Impact Challenge Award.
The work is revolutionary: This project inspired and supports the Climate TRACE coalition, a group of 11 organizations and former U.S. Vice President Al Gore which recently released the world’s first electricity emissions inventory. This is work with radical transparency and increased granularity that everyone from world leaders to activists in every country can use to inform climate work.
And the next phases are big: We released the beginning of asset-level data via Climate TRACE Places and with your involvement there’s more to come.
We want you to join WattTime’s machine learning team to build new models, improve data pipelines, and participate in cutting edge research to find new signatures present in satellite imagery which identify how much a given power plant is emitting.
This is challenging, immediately impactful work that you’ll be able to see and drive. Does this sound like what you’re after? Let’s talk.
ABOUT THE WORK
Join a small, committed team to train, improve, analyze, and deploy ML models to estimate power plant emissions around the globe.
This role in particular involves:
WORKING WITH WATTTIME
We are practical, results-driven scientists. We believe nothing has more potential for fast, world-changing impact than software does. We embrace change. We are lean and rapid prototypers. We never confuse growth with impact. We are all personally, fiercely committed to our mission. We are quietly radical in unexpected ways. We have allies, not competitors. Our band of expert volunteers helps us punch above our weight class. We trust in data and everyone’s voice being heard. We know diversity is central to success. We consider respect non-negotiable: there are no jerks here.
Unlike most start-ups, our team is backed by a host of more than 200 volunteers who contributed to our founding and are happy to support us in terms of advice, networking and perspective.
