Working at Gridium

Better buildings for a better world

At Gridium, we develop beautiful tools to help large buildings reduce their energy use and improve their operations. We believe that everyone deserves to use great software, and that teams work best when talented people are allowed to take risks in a warm, collaborative environment.

An environment to

Do your best work

Big challenges

We take in enormous amounts of data and use it to uncover meaningful patterns so that our customers, whether a large utility or a downtown skyscraper, gain unprecedented insight into their energy use.

You’ll have your choice of interesting problems to work on, whether you’re most excited about delivering great user experiences, cracking hard analytic problems, or scaling up web services to millions of users.

Collaborative, flexible

At Gridium, do your best work alongside other smart, creative people. We’re a small, focused team where everyone takes ownership of the end result, and informal collaboration takes precedence over long meetings.

We share information freely at Gridium: company goals, financial metrics, planning sessions, you name it. We believe an open environment lets us make better decisions, faster.

Work remotely

We’re a distributed team, which means you can work wherever you work best, whether a home office, a coworking space, your mountain hideaway, a favorite coffee shop, or anywhere else.

Not everyone is comfortable working remotely – we understand! – but we’ve invested heavily in the tools and processes necessary to make distributed collaboration work. Maybe you want to be home every day when your kids get back from school. Or maybe you just prefer to stay close to your favorite mountain bike trail. Whatever the situation, if you’re a self-starter who craves flexibility, remote work might be for you.

Face time counts

Because sometimes face-to-face really is best, all Gridium employees get together once a quarter for three days of intensive planning, doing, eating, and socializing.

These get-togethers are highly productive and also a lot of fun. Past meetups have brought us to Chicago, San Francisco, Tahoe, Denver, Park City, and other great destinations. Spouses and pets make frequent guest visits!
