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.

What we're looking for

We are looking for a team member who is excited to do everything involved in shipping great products: writing code, managing infrastructure, talking with customers, learning about thermodynamics and cooling systems, and setting direction for the company. You will be joining as an early member of the team that will shape everything that comes next at SnoFox. Your past experience should include a track record of building powerful, data-heavy applications.
