At Habitat Energy we bring together exceptionally talented and passionate people in the domains of energy trading, data science, software engineering and an in-depth understanding of flexible energy assets. Our aim is to maximise the value of large-scale flexible energy assets, (e.g. battery storage), so they are attractive investments, are deployed at scale and enable the energy transition.

We are looking for smart, motivated people to join our team who share our belief that we can outperform the energy sector dinosaurs, have a positive impact on the planet and have fun doing it together.

We encourage you to apply even if you may not meet every requirement in this posting. We value diversity and our environment is supportive, challenging and focused on the consistent delivery of high quality, meaningful work.

  • You have a passion for algorithmic decision-making and a desire to apply that within the energy sector
  • You have a BA/BSc degree in Computer Science, Machine Learning or related technical field
  • You have experience with Python and its wider numerical ecosystem (Pandas, SciKit-learn, etc.)
  • You have at least 3 years of work/educational experience building and delivering real-time projects in Machine Learning, Data Science and/or Convex Optimization

Extra credit if you can demonstrate:

In return, we'll give you a competitive salary, flexible working arrangements and a lot of personal development opportunities.
