“Working at Elder Research gave me the opportunity to spread my wings and develop software that contributes to the world in a way that I can be proud of. One of the projects I worked on was predictive maintenance for hydro-electric generators based on sensor data, and I got to contribute a non-insignificant amount to the infrastructure that brings the trained models to the real world.”
