About Tyba

Tyba is a modeling platform for energy companies developing, financing, and operating renewable energy. Energy companies rely on technical models daily to make crucial infrastructure decisions. Our mission is to make cutting-edge models accessible to cross-functional teams such that companies can build and operate more renewable energy more profitably. We apply data science, AI/ML prediction, optimization, and physical modeling to a range of applications that support decision-making, from early-stage siting of power plants to the daily operations of energy storage and solar projects. Our customers access these models via an easy-to-use web application or programmatically through our API and rely on the accuracy of our models and the performance of our software.

  • Managing customer support functions for new asset commissioning and daily operations.
  • Informing product development of customer-facing operations management interface and API in collaboration with Tyba’s product leadership and engineering teams.
  • Informing model development of price forecasting, dispatch optimization, and bidding models for US markets in collaboration with Tyba’s Machine Learning and Optimization teams.

What is the interview process like?

Our interview process focuses on core competencies. We want to make sure that you are set up for success at a fast-growing and high-impact startup. We will first get to know each other through conversations about Tyba, your background, and what you are looking for in your next role. While the specifics vary, from there, we will focus on evaluating your skills and experience relevant to the role. Once we have determined whether or not you are a fit for the team, we will help you get to know the company better and speak with other team members to inform your decision. We prioritize transparency, clear communication, and ensuring that we do our best to find a mutual fit. 

Are you a remote work company?

Tyba started as a remote company, is committed to growing a distributed team, and recruits candidates across all US time zones. Our headquarters is in San Francisco, with remote teammates in California, Illinois, Massachusetts, and Washington. We seek to balance the benefits and the energy of collaboration with the deep work that remote work affords. As such, we support frequent opportunities for remote team members to travel to meet and collaborate with the broader team, have regular meetings to coordinate and pair on projects and focus on a culture of transparent decision-making and written communication around agreements.
