Senior Software Engineer at Urbint
Our mission is to make communities more resilient. We do this by pairing external data with artificial intelligence to identify areas of high risk and prevent catastrophic loss for utilities and infrastructure operators across the country. We are a team of close-knit engineers, entrepreneurs, and data geeks who obsess over problem-solving, new technologies, and making a positive impact in our communities.
You will help us build software to solve safety and efficiency concerns facing some of the largest utilities and infrastructure operators. These solutions will often involve large amounts of disparate data, complex data pipelines, user-friendly interfaces, wrappers to machine learning models that power our decision engines and security features to achieve the highest levels of information security as is demanded by the problems and our customers.
