Careers at PXiSE

Delivering software solutions for a renewable, resilient electric grid is what we do, but who we are is so much more.

A slice of PXiSE life

At PXiSE, we build autonomous controls, and we also build autonomy into how we do our jobs. Work from home, work from our office, start early or work through the night, it’s your call. We trust you to do what’s right for you to do the best job for us.

PXiSE is headquartered in San Diego, California, which is known for its sandy beaches and near-perfect year-round weather. But beyond the tourist sites, residents know it’s the county’s varied landscapes—beaches, mountains and valleys, and blend of urban and rural lifestyles--that make life here pretty nice.

Our differences make us stronger

In a similar way, PXiSE knows that it’s the diversity of our people that gives us an innovative edge. We like to think of it as the PXiSE spice. We’re helping build the 21st century grid—a paradigm shift that requires visionary minds unencumbered by what’s been done in the past. For that we need creators, innovators and dreamers from all walks of life who share our ambitious vision. Are you spice enough for that?
