About Urbint

Urbint empowers utilities and infrastructure operators to make communities safer and more resilient with artificial intelligence (AI), helping to quantify the tradeoffs between safety, reliability, and affordability.

Job Description

At Urbint, our mission is to create safer and more resilient communities using AI. We are passionate about taking data about our changing world – from climate, to urbanization, to infrastructure risk – and harnessing it to allow utilities and infrastructure operators to predict and prevent threats and meaningfully reduce field risk. We are a tight-knit team of coders, data scientists, infrastructure experts, entrepreneurs, and creatives working together to create and deliver cutting-edge technology to deliver insights that keep people safe.

You will have a passion for the practical side of managing large, complex systems and services and planning for maximum uptime leveraging modern tools.

    Maintaining System and Network Security - patch management, ensuring that dependencies are kept up to date. Staying informed about zero-day vulnerabilities and any risks that cannot be immediately patched and coming up with alternative methods to mitigate their risk.
    Logging, Metrics and Alerting - managing and organizing an on-call schedule through Pagerduty, connected to metrics and log events. On-call responsibilities will be shared.
