Packetized Energy is seeking a talented, highly motivated and mission driven individual to join our team as a Software Engineer.

At Packetized Energy our mission is to enable a future with clean, affordable, and resilient energy for all people. Our Nimble platform transforms energy devices at the edge of the grid, such as HVAC systems, water heaters, EV chargers, and behind-the-meter batteries, into valuable grid resources (virtual batteries) for the electricity industry. Through the Nimble platform, we provide software-based grid services and energy IoT devices to electric utilities and to wholesale electricity markets, while providing comfort and value for consumers. And we do all of this in a way that greatly simplifies the complexity of deploying and managing distributed energy resources, so that grid operators and electric utilities can reliably and cost-effectively transition to renewable energy sources, and consumers get clean, resilient, and easy-to-use energy for their homes.

Software engineers at Packetized work across technology stacks to build a full-stack software platform for grid operators and homeowners. Utilizing serverless technologies allows us to easily scale our services to ever-increasing numbers of energy resources. Our cloud platform enables grid operators to manage devices and monitor available flexibility across their fleet. Our mobile app gives homeowners unique views into their energy usage and allows them to participate in clean energy programs with their community.

Our vision is to do all of this in a way that is human-friendly. We work hard and have fun building awesome products that people love, and we are actively committed to enabling greater diversity, equity, and inclusion in the energy industry. Our team works collaboratively from our headquarters in Vermont and from other locations including New York, California and Boston (Greentown Labs).
