HVAC/Mechanical/Commissioning Engineer

There’s a new discipline being added to the HVAC mechanical engineering field—one that deals with data. Specifically, operational data used to assess and verify how the building runs.  If you think data will become an additional discipline of HVAC mechanical engineering, then this might be a unique opportunity for you.

Interval Data Systems is hiring an experienced HVAC/mechanical/Cx engineer for its Building Operational Analysis department. You’ll combine your engineering experience with building operational data to evaluate HVAC operations for clients.


  • Mechanical Engineering degree or able to demonstrate a deep knowledge of HVAC mechanical design and controls. PE, CEM, Cx certifications help. But the work is not in design and controls theory, it’s hands-on operational analysis. You should have a passion for seeing systems actually operating as they should.
  • You have to like data.  We’re not looking for a data scientist with no idea how HVAC systems work, but first an engineer that’s also got the right amount of data geek in them.
  • You must be able to communicate HVAC design intent and fundamental engineering concepts in and organized simple to understand presentation form. Must be able to speak authoritatively and knowledgably with a systems perspective on operating a building, not just an equipment perspective.
  • Have a strong desire to see the industry do better and help make it so. Change how buildings are delivered, how they run, and what it costs to keep them going.
  • Experience with complex buildings required, such as medical and science labs, hospitals, cleanrooms, etc.
  • Familiarity with ASHRAE standards 90.1, 62.1, 55 and in particular ASHRAE G36 High Performance Buildings Sequences of Operation a plus
  • Presentation skills, written and oral. This is your opportunity to stand in front of the customer (virtually) and provide feedback and recommendations. Become recognized as an expert in building science and operational excellence.
  • Must be able to work with design engineering firms to provide input on SOO, data required for MBCx, and input on controls and HVAC equipment.  We’re pioneering the discipline of getting the automation right in the design phase of the project.
  • You can impart your expertise on many more buildings when the data comes to you and you don’t have to go to the building (also means you can make more money)

This is a chance to advance your career and expertise in building controls and hone your presentation skills and ability to present mechanical engineering through data. Become an expert in evaluating SOO and have the chance to revise/improve them as well.


At IDS, we’re committed to providing our customers with the best solutions possible to create comfortable, healthy, and efficient buildings. We don’t believe in unnecessary equipment upgrades, outdated sequences, or half-baked implementations.
