Remote Energy Markets Analyst

June 5, 2024

Job Description

The energy sector is experiencing its most significant transformation since industrialization, and we are positioning ourselves at the forefront of this rapid change.

Our goal is to become the leading global provider of solutions that enable customers to unlock £30bn of value annually from distributed energy resources (DERs). We’re building a Software as a Service (SaaS) subscription business, targeting a global market worth £2.4 billion per year, by digitally connecting hundreds of thousands of DERs with energy markets.

KrakenFlex has already established itself as a market leader and a recognized innovator in the industry. Our achievements have garnered the support of Octopus Energy, an award-winning UK energy supplier that shares our passion and values.

With our recent expansion into the USA, both in retail and software licensing, we have an exciting opportunity to influence key product development decisions and help us grow rapidly in the US.

What You’ll Do

  • Evaluate US energy markets, ancillary service markets, and utility systems, identifying participation criteria for utility-scale and residential DERs.
  • Assist the business development team in assessing the value of flexibility.
  • Represent Kraken and actively participate in industry forums to accelerate the energy transition.
  • Use advanced data analysis and modeling techniques, along with market research, to inform strategic business decisions.
  • Collaborate with product teams to identify and analyze upcoming roadmap items.
  • Develop and deliver persuasive presentations for clients, regulators, and other industry stakeholders.

What You’ll Need

  • 5 years of experience in a similar role related to US energy markets, including positions at RTO/ISO, scheduling coordinator, or DER/DSM programs.
  • Ability to analyze complex regulatory filings and communicate appropriate responses or strategies.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills.
  • Strong organizational and project management abilities.
  • Adaptability to work in a fast-paced environment and a willingness to learn.
  • Proven ability to collect, analyze, and interpret complex quantitative data.
  • Knowledge of US wholesale energy markets, energy storage, and renewable energy technologies.
  • Familiarity with federal, state, and local laws, regulations, and ordinances governing energy markets, especially related to DER/DSM.
  • Experience with energy storage systems and renewables.

Why You’ll Love It Here

  • We discuss salaries openly with candidates to ensure we match your experience with the appropriate compensation. We value finding the right fit over sticking to a fixed salary range.
  • Octopus Energy offers a unique culture where people learn, decide, and build quickly, working with autonomy on groundbreaking projects. We value your hard work with perks you truly care about.
  • We were named the best company to work for in 2022, ranked among Glassdoor’s 50 best places to work, and our Group CEO, Greg, has shared insights about our empowering culture.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.

Studies show that some groups, like women, are less likely to apply for a job unless they meet all the requirements. Regardless of who you are, if you’re interested in one of our roles, we encourage you to apply. We seek honest and empathetic individuals across Octopus. Our people are our greatest asset, and their unique skills and perspectives drive our success. As an equal opportunity employer, we do not discriminate based on any protected attribute. We are committed to providing equal opportunities, an inclusive work environment, and fairness for everyone.
