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.

Our team

At Kraken we’ve developed an innovative platform that is licensed to support 54 million customer accounts in 17 countries, and we aim to serve 100 million globally by 2027.

Industry Analytics is a newly established business area that sits in our Industry Implementation product group. Our purpose is to serve as the foundation for energy industry expertise in every market. Industry Analysts leverage specialist domain knowledge to detect where issues originate and solve key problems for our clients and end consumers. We are responsible for ensuring Kraken manages industry data successfully, and support Tech and Product teams to develop efficient and compliant products.

As the volume, scope and geographical range of the business rapidly expands, we’re looking for individuals who have a deep understanding of their local market to join Industry Analytics teams across the world, to help us build and maintain our industry data, processes and products.

We’re passionate about building great technology to change the way customers use, and think about energy for the good of the planet. This is a fantastic opportunity to work with us on real market-based challenges, help to drive the development of Kraken’s industry products, move us towards net zero, and support the energy transition.

We would prefer someone who can work in our London office but will consider remote candidates. However, you do need to be able to work in the UK.

We're very excited to be growing our team. We're looking for skills and experience to help shape and define the future of not only our team, but the wider business at a global scale. If you're reading this and grinning, please apply! There are huge challenges to tackle, and we need amazing people who are keen to get stuck in.

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.
