About Gradyent

\n

Half of all energy in the world is consumed in the form of heating, used in either buildings or industrial processes. Smart production, exchange and consumption of heating is the most significant opportunity for cities and industries to decarbonise. Gradyent is a leading scale-up company with a mission to help cities and industries to decarbonise faster by digitising their heating networks with our digital twin. Backed by a group of top investors, we are scaling the platform globally.

\n

We currently have a team of 70+ people and offices in Rotterdam (the Netherlands), Germany, Sweden, Poland, Hungary & beyond. Our team combines AI and energy specialists, data scientists and top-tier consulting alums. We are expanding quickly and looking for an experienced Business Development Lead in Germany to help us scale in the industrial sector.

\n

What we do

\n

We offer a SaaS solution to create digital twins of heating networks. These digital twins, powered by AI and analytics, optimise district heating networks and industrial steam networks from heat production to distribution and consumption. As a result, we help transform networks and reduce CO2 emissions and optimise operations in terms of temperatures, pressures, and other metrics. These AI solutions minimise energy usage, CO2 emissions and operating costs while maintaining the proper end-user service levels.
