The electricityMap team, part of Tomorrow, is hiring a data scientist with project management skills to help us build and improve our database of worldwide electricity emissions data, advance our forecasting and modeling efforts to help make our data more actionable, and help our partners best leverage our data to accelerate the energy system towards a zero-carbon future.
At electricityMap, we maintain a database and pipeline that ingests real-time data in order to power a popular open-source project and commercial API used by companies, universities, NGOs, and policy-makers (including some heads of state!) around the world every day to understand and reduce the climate impact of the electricity grid.
Our team works from across Europe and out of an office in Copenhagen. You’re welcome to work from Copenhagen, but you’re also welcome to work from anywhere in Europe as long as you’re prepared to visit Copenhagen (or other team offsite locations!) several times each year.
You are welcome at Tomorrow for who you are, no matter your background or what you look like. We believe that it’s in our differences that we will find the power to solve one of the biggest challenges of our time.
At Tomorrow, we’re building tech products that address the climate crisis. We’re a venture capital-backed company that was founded 4 years ago with the creation of electricityMap. You can read more about our mission here.
Tomorrow is made up of two autonomous product teams, electricityMap, which already has had a meaningful impact on reducing carbon emissions thanks to our open-source approach and our partnerships with organizations like Google, and Bloom, which is building a solution to help organizations measure, understand and reduce their carbon footprint.
We’re facing growing demand for our data and insights, with both increasingly being leveraged at scale. With these exciting developments comes a need for constantly improving our database, improving our modeling and forecasting capabilities, and being there to help our partners make the most of our data and API. If you’re looking for opportunities to not only solve interesting data science and machine learning problems, but also be hands-on with external stakeholders and the direct impact of your work, look no further. Your job will be to:
Expect to roughly spend 50% of your time stewarding and improving our datasets, 20% of your time engaging with stakeholders and managing projects, 20% of your time building machine-learning models, and 10% of your time sharing our mission and methodology through whitepapers, reports, etc.
A note about the project management aspect of the role: internally, we work with an loosely agile-style cycle structure (heavily inspired by Basecamp), but in your role you will be managing primarily our external collaborations, meaning that the style of project management will depend on the stakeholders.
We’re looking for a structured, purpose-driven, and empathetic data scientist with an aspiration to work directly with our clients and partners, and who is comfortable with autonomy and tackling challenging problems that will help the world understand and reduce its emissions.
Your personality, breadth of experience and your hunger to learn means more than years of experience. Even if you don’t fulfill all the skills listed below, do apply!
