Who We Are:

The world’s economies must transition to zero-carbon. With real estate representing 65% of global wealth and 40% of carbon emissions, there is no carbon-free future without carbon-free buildings. This is why we exist, and why we need you.

Audette is creating carbon reduction plans for every existing building on the planet. We apply building science and machine learning to model the most important features that contribute to carbon emissions. Our platform turns data into retrofit strategies for commercial real estate’s zero-carbon future.

The Opportunity:

We are seeking a  Data Platform Lead who thrives in a space of constant change and problem solving. Reporting to the Director of Technology, you’ll play a pivotal role in building our next generation SaaS platform that will deliver ground-breaking carbon intelligence to the entire planet. You will be instrumental in the development of others, so being a passionate leader will help you get the most out of your team. We understand leadership is always evolving, and we are committed to helping you develop within that space. This role is best suited for a generalist who is unattached to a particular platform, or tool, and is comfortable working in many aspects of technology stacks and cloud systems.

What you’ll do: 

● Build, lead and work alongside a small, customer-focused team to rapidly incorporate internal and external customer needs into small, incremental deliverables
● Lead Data Architecture, Warehousing, Modeling and Engineering efforts
● Be a self-starter, reporting progress, risks, needs and opportunities without prompting
● Work closely with diverse stakeholders to deliver and spearhead emergent value to the organization
● Advocate for industry best practices and help to train and mentor other team members
● Evolve the organization by identifying risks and opportunities and taking initiative to find solutions proactively 
● Take advantage of learning opportunities to keep your skills current, then share this
knowledge with stakeholders and other engineers.
● Develop expertise in a technology or system that is unique in the organization.

What’s in it for you?

Impact & Influence - This is a ground-floor opportunity where your contributions will directly affect not only the success of the company but the community as well. You will create a data ecosystem that will grow to planetary scale. Your expertise will be vital to our success and will support strategic decision making. You will work on challenging problems with a team of building science, data science, machine learning and software engineers. You will have a major impact over our technology, product and company

Growth and Development - Our rapid growth offers career development and mobility both upward and laterally. We believe in supporting our people with their career goals every step of the way, and we are committed to long term success with each person.

Collaboration - Work with a diverse, cross-functional, multidisciplinary team of smart, motivated humans. We believe that diversity and inclusion are critical to success and we strive to ensure everyone has a voice. This role will work closely with other leaders to collectively synchronize efforts to time delivery across the stack 

What you bring:

Experience - You are likely a Senior Data Scientist or Machine Learning Engineer who loves to coach and mentor others to success, while staying close to the modeling and taking tactical ownership of delivery. You will have expertise in commercial data modeling, and will have developed mature, functional data ecosystems in the past. Your tech stack is deep, and will work well with AWS or GCP. You have a keen eye for seeing the bigger picture and looking ahead to navigate potential risks and proactively solve for them.

Growth Mindset - You are open to new ideas and motivated to take on challenges, thriving in an ambiguous environment. You’re excited to utilize cutting edge technology, and to be continuously learning and growing. You can research and apply best practices, document and implement processes, draw on past insights to avoid pitfalls, and share your experience to upskill your team. You respond to change by adapting and can quickly pivot when the situation calls for it. With a strong commitment to value delivery, you have the confidence that allows you to take risks, inspire others, and grow together as you learn from both successes and missteps.

Leadership skills - You are curious, and continuously empower each contributor in your team.  You practice empathetic leadership through kindness and honesty, partnered with mindful communication skills to foster transparency.  You hold yourself and others to high standards of accountability, raising the bar of excellence with every delivery.  You drive engagement through a blameless culture of ownership, instilling confidence by supporting them through risk taking with strong mentorship. Lastly, you value what a diverse team can accomplish and strive for a culture of inclusion, safety, and learning on your team. 

Together, we’re creating something unprecedented to tackle a huge global problem. To make this happen, we strive to create a best-in-class workplace in many areas, including continuous skills improvement, servant leadership, empathic communication, high-trust culture, and more.

We know not everyone gains their education and skills the traditional way, especially those within a marginalized group, so if you feel you have 70% of the qualifications we are looking for and you are ready to make a difference, submit your application. We promise to consider the full scope of who you are and what you bring.

Audette is committed to creating an inclusive employee experience for all. Regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or parental responsibilities, we firmly believe that our work is at its best when everyone feels free to be their most authentic self.
