Help us make a big green dent in the universe. We're on a mission to drive the global renewable energy revolution, and we need loads more people to help us make our vision a reality.

Octopus Energy Services is a tech driven business that is spearheading the transition to greener, cheaper energy through the installation of in-home technologies; from smart meters and EV chargers; to low carbon heating, home batteries, solar, and beyond. 

We deliver smart energy, low carbon solutions for our customers and we’ve fallen head-over-heels in love with heat pumps - which provide an ultra-efficient, reliable alternative to replace dirty gas boilers that contribute 14% of the UK’s CO2 emissions.

We're on the lookout for a Data Analyst to join our heat pump sales function, working collaboratively with our Sales Leadership Team to provide the killer data insight required to give us an edge.

This role can be based in either our Brighton or Manchester office.

If this sounds like you then we'd love to hear from you.

Studies have shown that some groups of people, like women, are less likely to apply to a role unless they meet 100% of the job requirements. Whoever you are, if you like one of our jobs, we encourage you to apply as you might just be the candidate we hire. Across Octopus, we're looking for genuinely decent people who are honest and empathetic. Our people are our strongest asset and the unique skills and perspectives people bring to the team are the driving force of our success. As an equal opportunity employer, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected attribute. Our commitment is to provide equal opportunities, an inclusive work environment, and fairness for everyone.

  • You will build tools that can be 'self-serve' for team members with frequently-repeated questions.
  • You will also set the agenda and lead improvements in how Octopus accesses, stores, analyses, displays, and uses data

  • What you'll need

  • Bachelor's Degree, preferably in an analytical discipline such as engineering, science, economics or computer science.

  • Beneficial (not essential) to also have experience in Low Carbon Technologies such as Heat Pumps and Solar Panels.

  • Why else you'll love it here

  • Wondering what the salary for this role is? Just ask us! On a call with one of our recruiters it's something we always cover as we genuinely want to match your experience with the correct salary. The reason why we don't advertise is because we honestly have a degree of flexibility and would never want salary to be a reason why someone doesn't apply to Octopus - what's more important to us is finding the right octofit!
