Help us use technology to make a big green dent in the universe!

Kraken powers some of the most innovative global developments in energy.

We’re a technology company focused on creating a smart, sustainable energy system. From optimising renewable generation, creating a more intelligent grid and enabling utilities to provide excellent customer experiences, our operating system for energy is transforming the industry around the world in a way that benefits everyone.

It’s a really exciting time in energy. Help us make a real impact on shaping a better, more sustainable future.

At Kraken Technologies we're looking to revolutionise the energy system to make power cheaper, greener, and better for people around the world. Our tech platform ‘Kraken’ is already licensed to support 50 million customer accounts globally, and we aim to serve 100 million by 2027.

Octopus’ cloud software technology platform Kraken Tech offers utility clients end-to-end customer management through one simple solution aimed at helping utilities and their customers transition into a decarbonised future. 

We’re currently charging our platform to serve the water and broadband industries and have created a new team; Kraken Utilities. This team has already signed 4 clients; Severn Trent, Leep, Portsmouth Water, and Cuckoo.

We are looking to bring on an intern to work with our growth and strategy team, reporting into the growth lead. Your role will be to help drive a key research project designed to help us identify areas of opportunity within the global water market. 

The role will allow a high level of autonomy, so we are looking for someone who is a self-starter and can work proactively. 

We are aiming for this person to start ASAP and will work full-time for 8-10 weeks during the summer. Our aim will be to have you coming into our London office 3-4 times a week to collaborate with the team in person - although this is not a requirement. 

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

Are you ready for a career with us? We want to ensure you have all the tools and environment you need to unleash your potential. Need any specific accommodations? Whether you require specific accommodations or have a unique preference, let us know, and we'll do what we can to customise your interview process for comfort and maximum magic!

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.

What you'll do:

  • You will take ownership of a key research project to identify opportunities within the global water market. 
  • Naturally your role will involve a lot of research and communication with team members. 
  • You will present your findings back to the Growth Lead, and this information may be used to directly influence how we decide to proceed. 
  • What you'll need:

  • We’re looking for someone who is currently studying for or completed a University degree. 
  • Previous consulting experience is a big bonus. 
  • Someone who is available to work 4-5 days a week for 10-12 weeks. 
  • A passion for sustainability and renewable energy, a love for problem-solving, an eye for detail and an interest in trying new things.  
  • Above all, we’re looking for someone who thrives in a dynamic environment and who isn’t afraid to think differently and challenge the status quo.
