Data Scientist

At Sympower

Sympower's mission is to enable the transition to a fully renewable energy system.

With our in-house software platform, we unlock the flexibility of electrical assets and processes: from steel smelting to solar panels, electric vehicles to paper production. When the grid is out of balance, we temporarily adjust the power of machines and processes through our advanced and automated demand response capabilities. Flexibility is a vital component of a fully renewable energy system and by providing non-intrusive software solutions, we allow our customers to enhance the value of their electrical assets. We empower traditional industries to become more sustainable and enable the shift from fossil fuels to renewables.

We are a mission-driven, international team that is based in multiple countries. We are growing fast and have recently been recognised as one of the eleven scale-ups selected for the Techleap Rise programme, featuring tech scale-ups that are contributing to flatten the climate curve.

Our platform

Our platform collects and stores large amounts of data of various types relevant to grid balancing. At Sympower we see data as the oil that keeps business processes running smoothly and efficiently. We want to make data easily accessible to the business by turning them into useful information, knowledge, and insights that our colleagues and customers can use to perform better in their work and to run their operations smoothly. The responsibility for this lies within Sympower's Data Team.

Our Data Team
