About Hatch Data:

Climate change is real.  Addressing this is the biggest issue of our time.  While moving the world from dirty energy sources to clean ones matters, there is also an enormous opportunity to use existing resources more efficiently.  Buildings consume up to 40% of the energy in North America alone. This is a big opportunity to create change. We bring our values to work and every day push to solve these problems at scale. 

Our team applies their knowledge of energy systems, mechanical engineering, IoT, machine learning and the built environment, to design cutting edge software that reduces the negative environmental impact of our indoor spaces while improving the bottom line for owners and operators. Our software platform has been proven across more than 550M square feet of commercial real estate with marquee customers, and we’re doubling down our efforts in the coming months as we prepare to accelerate growth and impact. 

This is a unique opportunity to join a company that “does well by doing good” and is positioned for significant expansion. You’ll enjoy comprehensive benefits, competitive salary, and meaningful equity. We offer a flexible work environment and the opportunity to work alongside an incredibly talented, fun, and highly motivated team.
