  • Experience with Printed Circuit Board design using Altium, Eagle, or similar CAD tools
  • Experience with communication protocols such as I2C, SPI, Ethernet, or Cellular
  • Familiarity with Firmware design of microprocessor systems using C, assembly language, Arduino, or similar languages.
  • Familiarity with Python programming and common libraries.
  • Willing to travel occasionally

What does joining LineVision mean for you?

  • Impact. Your talent, time, and energy will critically impact our success in providing utilities around the world with solutions to increase the flexibility, efficiency and safety of their grids for a cleaner and electrified future
  • Real World Data Science. Data science jobs that combine real-world sensor data, and impact a critical real world system like the electricity grid are rare. We give you the opportunity to think like a scientist, but still have a direct business impact.
  • Growth. You will join a high-performing data science team to maintain LineVision’s technical expertise for line monitoring and dynamic line ratings. This role will be hands-on directly with cutting edge LiDAR, weather, and geospatial data. You’ll have opportunities to work with many cross functional teams, getting exposure to just about every aspect of LineVision’s business.
  • Distinction. You will inspire the future by being part of a team that introduces a fundamentally differentiated solution to utilities that helps solve the challenges they face in updating and increasing the capacity of the current grid system
  • Ownership. You hold broad responsibilities with high autonomy in a communicative, collaborative, and fast-paced environment with other scientists and engineers

Who we are…

We are a rapidly growing technology company, enabling electric utilities around the world to lead the clean energy transition with enhanced transmission grid flexibility, increased resiliency, and more grid capacity for renewable energy. We provide utilities with our patented, non-contact sensors for the real-time monitoring and predictive analytics they need to accelerate the path to a net-zero grid.

  • We are a team of dedicated individuals who are passionate about helping to solve the biggest challenges facing today’s electric grid
  • We believe unlocking transmission capacity is critical to the resilience of our future grid and the ability to integrate renewables at scale
  • We value and benefit from the wide-ranging perspectives that come from a diverse and inclusive work environment
  • We are committed to providing:
    • Situational awareness to help grid operators make informed decisions on the physical position of their conductors that can help to prevent damage and fires
    • Dynamic Line Ratings to increase capacity by up to 40% on existing transmission lines with real-time monitoring while improving reliability & safety
    • Asset health monitoring to improve maintenance strategies by creating a digital twin to determine the true conductor health
