Who we are

SnoFox Sciences provides energy efficiency and predictive maintenance solutions to cold chain logistics providers. A VC-backed startup at the intersection of thermodynamics, data science, and mechanical engineering, SnoFox Sciences is revolutionizing the global cold chain through physics-based analytics.
The stakes couldn't be higher: the refrigeration sector is responsible for ~17% of global energy consumption. The UN estimates that demand on the food supply chain will increase by 70% in the coming years, and this year 80 billion pounds of food was wasted in the US alone – 30% of which is attributed to cold chain failure. Tragically, 50% of the world's vaccine supply goes to waste every year resulting in 1.5 million child deaths per year from vaccine-preventable illnesses.

SnoFox is looking to hire a customer-facing Energy System Engineer (typically someone with a background in mechanical engineering or similar) who is responsible for the development, customization and deployment of thermal hydraulic models that are foundational to the SnoFox platform. Those in this role are expected to support customers across the implementation lifecycle from scoping to go-live in a consultative fashion.
