Even if you do not meet all of the attributes below, if you believe you are a good fit for this position and can articulate such, we look forward to receiving your application.
Gaiascope is a company focused on the future.
Gaiascope’s name is rooted in two concepts:
Gaiascope’s name reflects the values of the company: to maintain planetary balance and combat climate change, humanity’s largest systems must work as an intelligent collective. Gaiascope’s system of focus is the electric grid: Gaiascope is building the ‘brain’ for, arguably, humanity’s most complex invention to date, enabling billions of individual components like electric vehicles, solar farms, and demand response to operate effectively, and in parallel. Gaiascope’s brain will inform everything from grid operations to buildout, and is paramount to entering the next age of humanity: the Electric Age, when we as a species have the abundant energy resources required to continue our exponential progress, yet still live in symbiosis with our planet.
Gaiascope's software is a sophisticated hybrid of machine learning and compute-efficient physical models. To prove the value of this, the company uses its software to predict electricity prices for proprietary trading; in effect, trading is the engine which funds reinvestment and growth, as well as a valuable marketing tool. So far in 2021, trading capital informed by Gaiascope’s software has grown +65% year to date. In concert with growing third-party client revenue, Gaiascope is raising an LP fund, which will launch in early 2022.
Gaiascope's team comes from Harvard, MIT, MORSE, Wayfair, USC, ClimateConnect and wall street, and its founders were Y Combinator S19 alums.
