Analyst/Senior Analyst

The Company

Aurora Energy Research is a dynamic and fast-growing energy analytics company. We provide optimisation solutions and data-driven analytics on European and global energy markets that helps our clients navigate the global energy transformation.

Founded in 2013 by a group of University of Oxford academics on the premise that technological progress, and policies tackling climate change, render energy markets increasingly complex, but that this complexity yields to rigorous, sophisticated analysis and modelling.

Aurora is now a thriving, rapidly-growing company of over 100 staff with offices in Oxford, Berlin and Sydney. Demand for our services – spanning subscription research and consultancy – is immense, in the UK and abroad. We currently serve over 200 of Europe’s most influential energy sector participants, and we expect to grow beyond 150 staff over the next 18 months.
