Gridcognition provides advanced software to plan and optimise distributed energy projects. Their software is used by large energy suppliers, energy project developers, technology providers, and large energy users.
They believe the future of energy is small, smart and clean, and that software can be used to accelerate decarbonisation to help tackle climate change.

Gridcognition is a fast growing technology startup and they want to have a global impact. They are looking for smart, savvy and curious learners to join their distributed team and to help invent new technology to lead the world into a decentralised energy future.
