Our sensor networks generate a lot of data.

Our aim is to help people understand, manipulate and act upon this data. We are looking for a ​User Interface Engineer​ to create tools that simplify problems, automate tasks, and expand environmental intelligence. Take your love for combining creative design with logical problem solving to develop fluid and natural experiences.

Today, our data interfaces live on the web; tomorrow they may be on phones, walls, in virtual reality, or as part of AI assistants. We are always envisioning and experimenting.

We work in a relaxed, purpose-driven atmosphere which encourages rapid iteration, crazy ideas, and collaborative empathy. Aclima is unique in its breadth of multi-disciplinary work; expect to collaborate with climate scientists, electrical engineers, lab technicians, data scientists, product managers, and more on a regular basis. Because of our open ended problem, we emphasize flexibility, core knowledge, and openness to learn. We believe great interfaces need to be wherever our insights are. If this sounds exciting, please apply to join our team!
