Diagnose, troubleshoot, and solve software/hardware challenges at the intersection of refrigeration, thermodynamics, energy and facilities management, and enterprise software.
Perform data-driven analyses in Python to inform product feature and commissioning decisions.
Generate and maintain best practices for Axiom's Product Team.
Manage communication with relevant stakeholders and drive incubation of new features.
Build tools in Python to assist with development and testing.
Leverage the skills of our unique and exceptional cross-functional staff to create innovative solutions to physical engineering challenges.
