Position Specific Description

eIQ Mobility, a subsidiary of Nextera Energy, is a data science and software company based in San Francisco, CA. eIQ Mobility is the leading software provider of fleet electrification solutions, building the most trusted platform that drives vehicle fleets into a smart, electric, and cost-effective future. eIQ Mobility was founded in 2018 in response to the unique roadblocks that corporate and public fleet leaders face in electrifying their vehicles, starting with identifying ‘where and how’ to electrify. To date, eIQ Mobility has assessed 150,000+ vehicles for EV feasibility for Fortune 500 companies, EV manufacturers, utilities, and public fleets.

eIQ software engineers collaborate with data scientists, product experts and business leaders to design, build, and maintain applications that model and operate electrified fleets. We work as a team: each of us taking their turn to lead, follow, teach, or learn as the occasion requires. On any given day, one of us might:

  • Write a small web service using Python’s Flask framework

  • Review a colleague’s PR for functionality, security, and quality

  • Debug a container orchestration issue on Google Cloud

  • Write a script to load customer data into our SQL store

  • Tweak a ReactJS component holding a data visualization

  • Consult with business leaders on a utility-scale clean energy initiative

You might be a good fit for this role if:

  • You have excellent cloud software development skills: distributed system design, container orchestration, data engineering, integrated testing, and the review of complex patches

  • You are an exemplary teammate: always ready to help a colleague, express complex concepts clearly, listen to complicated explanations patiently, do unavoidable chores cheerfully, and leverage your attention effectively

  • You will be very productive with our primary toolkit: Python, SQL, HTTP, bash/POSIX, and container orchestration

  • You can occasionally contribute to our secondary needs: Google Cloud administration (Kubernetes, CI/CD, GCP-specific data services), ReactJS, visualization and observability

  • (We would like at least one of our new colleagues to have strong Kubernetes skills)

  • You have previous experience with data science pipelines, the transportation industry, or electricity systems

  • You have a passion for decarbonizing transportation and want a career that positively impacts millions of human beings
