About us

Changing the world is no easy task. But in 1999 that’s exactly what Good Energy set out to do. Its purpose is to enable people, in their homes and their businesses, to play an important role in protecting their world from climate change, by providing households and businesses access to locally sourced 100% renewable energy.

Fast forward to today, and we are now a key player in the renewable energy market. But we’re now embarking on an exciting new phase that will transform Good Energy into a digital-led business that’s at the forefront of technology in the energy sector. To make that happen, we’re forming new teams of technology experts to build digital and business applications that will set us apart in the eyes of our customers, and enable us to bring the future of renewable power closer.

Each member of these cross-functional agile teams have the opportunity to influence the direction of the business, and the energy sector as a whole. Fundamentally, we want our IT & Digital teams to be made up of clever and self-motivated individuals to proactively identify and solve problems.

About the function and role

Within our flat agile structure you will report directly to the Business Solutions Manager but be able to bring your own ideas to the products you’re involved in, to find the best solutions to challenging problems. This is an exciting opportunity for an individual with strong programming skills to apply themselves to a growing area of the business and learn more about the Energy Industry.
