About PingThings, Inc.

Join the Core Team

Work with a small, world class team building the next generation of time series platforms to revolutionize the country's electric grid and more.

When we say time series, we mean a streaming sequence of tuples each with a timestamp and a floating point value [timestamp, value]; the value arises from a sensor taking a measurement of a real world, physical process at some sample rate, often significantly greater than 1 Hz. We have won grants from the Department of Energy, ARPA-E, and the National Science Foundation. If you have ever wanted to join a startup whose management is primarily technical and who has market traction before the Series A, this is that opportunity.
