Software Engineering Manager - Lisbon
Kaluza was born out of OVO Energy wanting to do things differently and an ambition to be market leading through the energy transition.
When OVO was founded in 2009, all energy companies had the same technology strategy buying off the shelf energy utility software.
With a fast-evolving energy landscape, it is clear that the traditional approach to technology is no longer fit for purpose.
Today’s energy retailers are grappling with the need to rapidly digitise and reap the rewards of modern technology across all areas of their businesses.
In an increasingly connected and data-rich world, legacy operating systems are weighing and slowing retailers down, draining resources and hampering innovation for customers who are at the heart of the energy transition.
While the electrification of heat and transport and the rise of the smart home are driving decarbonisation, suppliers are challenged with engaging customers in a more flexible and affordable energy system
From revolutionising billing to smart electric vehicle charging, Kaluza’s technology is empowering some of the biggest energy suppliers to better serve millions of customers.
Its real-time cloud platforms transform supplier operations, reducing cost to serve, boosting customer engagement and enabling them to drive decarbonisation with smart, low carbon technologies.
Kaluza’s leading innovation is recognised across the industry, winning Technological Innovation’ in edie’s Sustainability Leaders Awards 2020, Transport Technology’ in BusinessGreen Technology Awards 2019 and Best Innovation in Electricity’ at the UK Energy Innovation Awards 2019.
Kaluza’s Energy Retail Platform
As the world’s energy needs evolve, suppliers with legacy systems are struggling to stay on top of increasingly complex and changing data, at great expense.
Kaluza leverages advanced automation to simplify previously unmanageable volumes of live customer and industry data. The SaaS platform intelligently learns from new data in real time and self-updates at scale, removing the need for manual maintenance.
In doing so, Kaluza creates considerable cost savings for suppliers enabling them to instead invest in innovating for tomorrow’s customers and future-proofing their business for a zero-carbon world.
