Hive is hiring a Data Scientist in energy analytics

We're looking for an experienced Data Scientist to join our team at Hive in London. Hive is best known for its Active Heating product, which lets you control your heating and hot water from your mobile, tablet or laptop. However, we also work closely with British Gas on their My Energy product, which provides customers with helpful insight into their energy consumption. We're looking for applicants with a scientific background (general machine learning knowledge), practical data analysis skills (ideally python stack), as well as experience in energy analytics (disaggregation would be a huge bonus!). The full job spec is available on the Centrica jobs portal, but if you're thinking of applying do drop me an email first :) We're aiming to fill the role in the next few weeks, so please apply soon if you're interested!

CSR Tales is blog devoted to documenting the stories behind research projects. They recently published a post written mostly by Nipun, covering the story of NILMTK - from the idea's first inception to the rapid development and release of the code and papers. Nipun, Jack and I all look back fondly on this project as some of the most open and productive scientific work we've ever done, and it makes us all really happy to see the project being used by the community. Having said that, none us have much time to keep up with the project these days, which is why we're really excited to welcome Paulo Meira (a postdoc at the University of Campinas in Brazil) to the core NILMTK team. We're keen to continue expanding the NILMTK team to allow the project to grow, so if you're interested in shaping the project's future then please get in touch :)
