Researcher / Scientist / Analyst Vibrant Clean Energy, LLC (VCE) is a
software and consulting company based in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. VCE is
at the forefront of a seismic shift in optimization modeling for electricity
and energy systems. The team at VCE have produced a product known as
WIS:dom. It is a software package that simulates the electricity and energy
system across the United States (with expansions available for the global
economy). It does this using sophisticated and detailed weather datasets,
electricity grid topology datasets, electric and energy demand datasets,
power flow models, weather forecasts, economic drivers, and more. For such a
large-scale model - it solves at 3-km, 5-minute out to 2050 - there are many
opportunities for improvement and studies. To that end VCE wants to grow its
team to include interested, motivated, and talented employees to push our
goals to the next level. We want you to come and join us if you are
