The person in this role will be involved in the technical analysis of SolarAnywhere® irradiance and weather data, as well as the design and testing of new algorithms and data models for historical and forecast weather data applications.

The Technical Product Manager will work closely with customers to understand needs, and then develop solutions that can be implemented by the software development team. The Technical Product Manager will also work alongside the software development team to conduct industry-leading research in the application of data science to solar irradiance and weather data prediction.

Key customer interactions will involve product consultation and support, while also gathering information on current and future customer needs. The ideal candidate will be familiar with techniques in data science, including statistical analysis and data visualization for presenting to customers and internal stakeholders alike. Exposure to remote sensing applications, such as satellite-based measurement techniques, is a plus. He or she will also provide internal technical support for marketing, sales and business development functions, and represent the company at technical conferences through publications and presentations.

This position is a great opportunity for long-term growth and leadership as the company continues to build expertise around the application of irradiance and other meteorological data more broadly in the energy industry. The company and product serve a complex, creative and competitive marketplace, and a self-driven and highly motivated individual will excel in this role.
