Fundamentally changing how commercial buildings operate, applying machine learning algorithms to extremely large data sets.
The modern office building can have thousands of sensors that can tell you a ridiculous number of things about what’s going on inside. Most of the data generated by these sensors goes unused, leaving opportunities for energy and operational efficiency on the table. At Cortex we are building an intelligent mobile assistant to make sense of all this data and contextualize it for the people operating the building. Our app is already driving a big reduction in energy usage for our clients, saving them money and reducing emissions. And we’re just getting warmed up.
Cortex is looking to double its engineering team by hiring a single super-talented individual who wants to be involved in all aspects of delivering upon this vision. We’ve got a lot of work to do that will touch upon a variety of buzzwords. We are building an IoT infrastructure to collect and store more sensor data. We are developing and training algorithms to make actionable recommendations based on that data. We need an intuitive and performant mobile user experience to communicate the goods to our users. All of this needs automated testing, monitoring, and deployment.
You should be excited about getting your hands dirty in all of these areas. Ideally you’ll teach us a thing or two about at least one of them.
Our current codebase is a clean, well-tested collection of web services (Rails/Postgres), a ReactJS front end, and data science jobs (Python) and it all runs on Heroku. We’ll expect you to have a deep understanding of similar technologies and a willingness to pick up ours.
We’re a four person team at the moment, so we’re also looking for someone to be a foundational member of our culture. Come and make a difference.
