WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING AS A DATA ANALYST

The Data Analyst will work closely with data scientists, software engineers and product managers to design, develop and test data science, machine learning, and statistical methods across our multifaceted, enterprise SaaS platform.

This platform, comprised of our PowerClerk®, WattPlan®, and SolarAnywhere®, enables utilities and the energy industry to inform, streamline and value energy-related decisions and processes. Across our products, a variety of best-in-class, highly unique datasets are growing every day, from a nationwide database of 1 km resolution solar irradiance data derived from satellite image feeds, to a continuous data feed of customer interest in clean energy technologies.

Clean Power Research is leveraging these datasets to solve new customer problems. The Data Analyst will identify and research additional data sets, conduct rigorous technical and data analysis and collaborate with the team to elevate these data sets in new and existing software products.

The person in this role will perform the technical analysis of irradiance and weather data, among other data sets, and validate new data models for historical and forecast weather data applications. Additionally, the Data Analyst will work alongside the product management team to conduct industry-leading research in the application of data science to solar irradiance and weather data prediction.

The Data Analyst will help assess and automate the analysis of the quality of different data sets such as energy consumption data from utilities, DER adoption related data sets, and evaluate and troubleshoot the accuracy of models developed based on this data. Additionally, the person in this role will also identify and research additional data sets, and work closely with the team to elevate the use of these data sets in new and existing software products.

Because this role is a part of the engineering org, it requires significant collaboration with people in the broader engineering team, including software engineers and data scientists. Additionally, the Data Analyst will work across different products based on the current needs and priorities of each team.

The Data Analyst will also provide internal technical support for marketing, sales and business development functions and may represent the company at technical conferences through publications and presentations.
