Product Analyst

About us

Weave Grid builds software to make it cheaper and safer for utilities to serve electric vehicles, add renewable energy resources, and save customers money. Our mission is to drive rapid decarbonization in the global transport and power sectors by intelligently connecting electric vehicles to the grid.

We are currently in market with early utility clients, and we must rapidly build and deliver product improvements to serve existing customers and win new deals from our deep pipeline. As a rapidly growing company, we are building a thoughtful, capable team that can adapt with our rapidly evolving circumstances.

Industry context

We are living through historic changes in the ways people use transportation — a sector that is now one of the largest and fastest-growing sources of greenhouse gas emissions.

Electric vehicle (EV) sales are growing at over 60% a year, with vehicle manufacturers spending billions to get ready for an electric future. Boston Consulting Group estimates EVs will account for over half of all vehicle sales by 2030. Electric utilities see massive opportunities in this transformation, as the rise of EVs could drive more growth in energy demand over the next 10 years than any decade since the 1950s.  

‍Larger EV fleets can also help support renewable energy sources on the grid. But to accommodate growth in EVs, utilities will need to make substantial investments in infrastructure and technology. Weave Grid's software helps meet the challenge of our transition to electrified transport.

Job description

We’re growing our utility customer base rapidly. To deliver value for clients and help accelerate progress on transportation electrification and grid decarbonization, we need to enroll, delight, retain and shape the behavior of EV drivers in our utility clients’ programs.

The person stepping into this role will own the product analytics suite that empowers the company to build large ‘fleets’ of drivers, charging their EVs in ways that support successful vehicle-grid integration.

We’re a small team and your contributions will be foundational to company success. You’ll also have the chance to learn from behavioral data on the frontiers of market development and grow professionally with the company’s trajectory.

This role will
Develop data products that support essential utility client program objectives
Guide analytics data modeling for driver enrollment and retention optimization.
Experiment to determine features and winning content that substantively help EV drivers and shape charging behavior
Uncover opportunities in the application to simplify users’ EV charging experience and keep them active in utility programs
Distill insights from collected data for team stakeholders and utility clients to highlight product impact and strategic opportunities
Identify EV drivers for acquisition through data gathering and modeling

About You

Building the driver engagement engine requires skill in gathering and interpreting data, particularly on EV driver behavior. This is all new territory, so you’ll be organizing yourself and (mostly) be building processes from scratch.

You’ll need to identify and prioritize your highest impact tasks and be able to make prudent decisions under ambiguous requirements. You should be able to reference previous experience owning and managing complex, demanding projects in the past, particularly in unstructured work environments. You’ll also need to empower and guide colleagues while solving important challenges for external stakeholders. For this, you’ll need interpersonal empathy and the ability to communicate clearly and concisely - verbally and in writing.

You should have comfort crafting readable emails, memos and requirements documents, tailored to your intended audience. If you can draft persuasive, engaging presentations in a common format (ppt, keynote, slides, etc), that is very helpful too.

Most of all, you should share the team’s commitment to achieving outcomes that reduce climate risk and support the shift to electrified transport, as well as our commitment to helping each other along this shared startup journey.

To meet the needs of this role, you will bring
The skills to own our data warehouse → transformation → visualization data pipeline
Strategies for enhancing our driver analytics platform and improving our understanding of driver behavior
Ability to write scripts in Python and/or R, drawing on common data analysis libraries
SQL expertise to extract insights - join, group, filter and execute window functions
Clear, maintainable, interpretable, actionable data resources (metrics, visualizations, models) for internal and external stakeholders
Well-supported conclusions from collected data, using statistical methods
Combining collected qualitative driver research with relevant quantitative insights
Collaboration with Weave Grid product and engineering teams
Culture and Mission
Beyond your core skills and track record, you are someone who will expand the culture and cumulative wisdom of the team as a whole. This can take many forms - relevant past projects, hard-won perspective from personal history, an unusual or adjacent skillset, a motivating passion, and so on. We are whole individuals, not just functional role-fillers, and we value everything that you can bring to the team.
Finally, you should be strongly motivated by Weave Grid’s mission. Energy and transportation expertise are not necessary, but it is important that you are passionate about tackling the climate crisis head on, by improving societal and environmental health.

Compensation and Location

We are looking to fill this position as soon as possible. Compensation will include competitive salary, equity, and benefits. Weave Grid is based in San Francisco but is open to considering remote candidates in the US demonstrating the skills listed above.
