Data Scientist - Performance Analysis & Automation, Energy Systems

About Stem

Stem provides solutions that address the challenges of today’s dynamic energy market. By combining advanced energy storage solutions with Athena™, a world-class artificial intelligence (AI)-powered analytics platform, Stem enables customers and partners to optimize energy use by automatically switching between battery power, onsite generation and grid power. Stem’s solutions help enterprise customers benefit from a clean, adaptive energy infrastructure and achieve a wide variety of goals, including expense reduction, resilience, sustainability, environmental and corporate responsibility and innovation. Stem also offers full support for solar partners interested in adding storage to standalone, community or commercial solar projects – both behind and in front of the meter.

Stem’s culture embodies diversity & inclusion beyond the traditional facets of gender, ethnicity, age, disabilities and sexual orientation to include experience, personality, communication, workstyles and more. At our core, Stem is at the momentous intersection of clean energy and software technology where diverse ideas, experiences and professional skills converge to make the inclusive culture we have today. Together, we are turning old-school thoughts about software and energy into progressive, collaborative, and innovative solutions. By joining our team, you will be collaborating with data scientists, energy experts, skilled salespeople, thought-leading executives and more from a range of backgrounds. This intersection of ideas, beliefs and skills is what makes us unique enough to lead the world’s largest network of digitally connected energy storage systems.

What we are looking for:

This data scientist role is an exciting opportunity to quantify, visualize, explain, and alter the performance of the Athena platform. As a part of Stem’s optimization and controls team, this role will lead the analytic investigations that resolve fleet issues pertaining to optimization driven services and applications at Stem. They will work with cross functional stakeholders and SMEs to ensure on time and high quality resolution of fleet issues in behind-the-meter and front-of-the-meter solar and energy storage operations. This individual will report to the Senior Mgr, Optimization and Controls.

Responsibilities:
- Lead efforts to accurately triage data science related fleet issues, meeting response time goals
- Leverage controls, optimization, data science and software platform technical background to deep dive into root cause analysis, propose & implement containment and corrective actions
- Proactively identify, diagnose and implement corrective actions before customer escalations
- Liaison with various operations teams to propose and establish measures to prevent known failure modes in future
- Define and establish processes, based on lean principles, to streamline production issue resolution
- Work with the optimization and controls team to provide tuned optimization and controls parameters and support provisioning and monitoring of first-of-it’s-kind sites to ensure that the new products/features meet expectations
- Define and establish metrics to track fleet performance of newly released features and work closely with data operations and programs teams to monitor early trends
- Work as a member of the Data Science team to create and maintain knowledge base articles and conduct training sessions for the organization
- Build tools and analytics for Level Two triaging that integrates directly with Stem’s operational software products, in partnership with the software development team
- Create customer value through contributing to the roadmap for reduction of cost of poor quality (CoPQ) and improving performance, in partnership with the performance and product team.
- Foster a strong technical culture characterized by high-quality implementations, effective organizational communication, decisiveness and speed, constructive conflict resolution, and a can-do mentality.
- Establish effective and collaborative cross-functional working relationships with peers, developers, and operations teams.

Required Experience:
- 2+ years experience in delivering industry-leading software and data science products.
- 2+ years experience in investigating complex systems operations, providing technical resolutions, and establishing processes for production issues.
- Electric power industry domain experience with demonstrated understanding of renewable energy, power systems, wholesale power markets, retail tariff structures, and Smart Grid technologies.
- Expert knowledge of energy system operational optimization.
- Prior work with cross-functional teams, including developers, engineers, architects, quality assurance, and operations.
- Experience working in an Agile engineering organization.

Desired Technical Experience:
- Application areas: Wholesale power market participation and energy asset portfolio optimization, preferably using battery and solar PV systems, and energy asset portfolio optimization behind-the-meter subject to retail tariff and aggregation level operational constraints.
- Understand value streams, topologies, incentives and constraints applicable to battery storage systems operating at commercial and industrial scale sites, utility scale power plants, micro-grids, EV charging stations, etc.
- Familiarity with Docker, Kubernetes and microservices architecture
- Familiarity with linear and mixed integer linear programming techniques
- Familiarity with optimization solvers and libraries like Gurobi, CPLEX, cvxpy, pyomo etc.
- Experience with cloud technologies– AWS preferred
- Experience with BI and visualization tools such as Tableau, Jupyter
- Power user of JIRA, Confluence
- Experience with algorithm ops: Validation, simulation and deployment pipeline, feature engineering, A/B testing

General Qualifications:
- Extraordinary communication skills, and able to present on complex technical topics to non-technical audiences.
- Experience in high-quality companies known for excellence in engineering is highly desirable.
- Intellectually curious: You’re interested in understanding and experimenting with new cutting-edge technologies. You want to dive deep into technical matters and can hold your own in discussions with engineers.
- Decisiveness: You gather the data and make informed, critical decisions quickly.
- Experience in full life cycle agile engineering practices ranging from concept, design, development, and QA to continuous release and maintenance.
- An entrepreneurial spirit with an ability to operate successfully in a high-growth company environment.
- A positive, energetic, can-do attitude: You’re driven to succeed, achievement-oriented, and self-motivated with high integrity, principles, and ethics.

Qualifications
- Masters degree in Engineering, Sciences
- 2 years of experience as a technical contributor and/or fleet analyst working on energy systems optimization products.
