Bedrock Energy is on a mission to transform the heating & cooling of buildings, using geothermal energy to radically reduce costs for people and the environment. We know that the earth underneath our cities holds extraordinary, untapped capacity to accelerate the clean energy transition, and Bedrock is gathering exceptional talent to scale this carbon-free, hyper-efficient, ultra-safe geothermal energy to buildings throughout the world. We seek to work with creative, collaborative, proactive team members who inspire us with their high standards of excellence, integrity, and commitment to our shared mission. We welcome you to join the Bedrock Energy team in empowering one another to innovate together, as we decarbonize buildings everywhere.
You will be responsible for designing and implementing a wide variety of integrated software in support of geothermal heating and cooling. You will collaborate with a growing team of mechanical, electrical, and software engineers to deliver our novel geothermal energy technologies. In doing so, you will also help set the early foundation of our engineering organization’s culture, processes, systems, and standards.
Ideally this position will be based out of Austin, TX; Los Angeles, CA; or SF Bay Area, CA. However, other remote locations may also be considered.
We’re looking for full-stack software engineers who love solving difficult, real-world problems using modern software engineering principles. We’re engineering a wide variety of systems, tools, and experiments to support the challenges that surface with a small team in a highly dynamic environment– people who build systems with quality, integrity, and speed that are “good enough” to solve the problems of now.
Examples of projects may include:
- Build cloud scale physics models to simulate a geothermal borefield over decades
- Work with our field operations team to capture, visualize, and act on real-time data in the field as they drill and install geothermal systems
- Partner closely with mechanical and electrical engineers to build cloud systems for storing, retrieving, and analyzing performance data over time
- Automate the design of a building’s heating and cooling system based on its building energy model
- Attune climate control systems over time with predictive analytics and building automation
- Interface with mechanical systems and industry software specific to geothermal heating and cooling applications
