Pittsburgh, PA - Full Time

Front End Developer


Conservation Labs invented a way to make a simple microphone classify and quantify any sound with machine learning. We are a team of data scientists and engineers who are passionate about solving complex problems, helping people, and improving the world for future generations. 

Our first product, H2know, is solving for the $70 billion economic impact of 2+ trillion gallons of unwanted water use in the US built environment each year. Our mission is to enable cost effective and sustainable water use. Our goal is to help property owners save money by saving water and provide peace of mind from damaging leaks. Because our solution uses machine learning to develop insights from a low cost sensor, the product is a factor less expensive than similar solutions.

Job Description
