Data Science Intern

Posted 4 weeks ago

How does one revolutionize a model of power delivery that finds itself rooted in the era of Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla? Simply put, it isn’t a one person job. VPS is a growing team of diverse software engineers, hardware engineers, data scientists and designers who share a passion for solving multidisciplinary problems. Building a software-driven smart grid that will transform how power is managed isn’t easy. But hard problems are the ones that we are most passionate about. It is simply who we are.

As an algorithm scientist Intern, you will be designing, developing, prototyping algorithms and
implementing them in production.

What You’ll Do

  • Work with the data science team, as well as cross functionally with other teams
    including developers, product management and QA
  • Analyze real time power data from data centers
  • Design algorithms for control and optimization of the datacenter power usage
  • Implement these algorithms in production code using functional programming


  • Hold or currently finishing up a bachelor’s, master’s or Ph.D. in a numerically demanding
    field such as Statistics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering, Science,
  • Significant programming skill (in languages such as Python, Scala, Matlab, Java, R) and
    the ability to learn new software systems quickly
  • Must have experience in design, development and implementation of optimization-based
    algorithms (e.g. linear programming, convex optimization)
  • Experience with data analysis and mathematical modeling
  • Experience with machine learning and/or time series analysis
  • Strong communication and collaboration skills
  • Ability to work and think independently
