Could This Be Your Dream Job?

Do you love working with data and research to derive insights and connect to and inform program strategy and decision making?  Do you enjoy building excel models to quantify program strategy and potential?

The Typical Day May Include…

  • Meeting with a cross-functional team to synthesize the latest market research and data into insights that will influence future program direction and resulting energy savings forecast.
  • Forecasting various ‘what if’s’ of a market intervention strategy to establish the range of potential market outcomes for an emerging technology.

  • Reading a final report from a field trial of an emerging technology to extract relevant datapoints that support assumptions in your market analysis and energy savings forecasts.
  • Presenting your analysis to our Advisory Committees and discussing assumptions used for reporting market-wide efficiency gains to our funders.

What Are You Good At?

Top performers will be excited about making a difference in energy efficiency adoption by consumers and businesses across the Northwest region.  The mission of decreasing customers’ energy costs and carbon emissions will energize the ideal candidate.  You will enjoy using analytical approaches to forecast out new product potential, as well as working with cross-functional teams and speaking up in meetings to bridge the strategy with the forecast.  You will flex between the science of building out technical assumptions and documenting sources to the art of creating scenarios of what the future can be with each efficiency program in the Northwest.
