We are Tibber, the energy company that wants you to use less energy. Whaaat? That’s right. We’ll get back to that. Yes, we are by definition an energy company, but we’re more techy than most. How and why you might ask. Well, a third of our employees are actually working on developing products and solutions that can help you use energy in a smarter way. Our main goal is to empower people, and to reduce the amount of energy being used unnecessarily all around the globe – with the help of cool fancy tech. Good for our customers, their wallets, and the planet.
Our growth rate has been truly amazing, and still, we’re just getting started. With millions of smart devices connected to the Tibber platform (like electric vehicles and smart thermostats), we have one of the most unique portfolios trading energy on the market.
As an energy company, Tibber must procure electricity from the wholesale power markets. These markets function as day ahead markets, meaning we must purchase energy for the next day, 365 days a year. In order to do that we must forecast how much power our customers will consume and produce (for example from their rooftop solar panels).
We’re now looking for a Data Scientist to our trading team! Could you be the next adventurer to join us?
What the role entails
You'll be a part of our skilled trading team, handling immense volumes of fascinating data and working with the latest cloud technology.
In this role, you will work with other data scientists to constantly improve Tibber's electricity consumption and production time-series forecasts - which are the backbone of our trading activities.
With our portfolio making up over half a million households, these forecasts are the basis for us procuring up to one gigawatt-hour of power every hour - that’s the scale of a nuclear power plant!
You'll also work on developing Tibber's energy price forecasting capability for multiple power markets including the day ahead, intraday and imbalance markets. These models will be based on a wealth of fundamental market data such as wind, nuclear hydropower production as well as the transmission flows throughout the European power system.
Exciting, right? In their daily work, the team primarily uses Python as a language together with tools and packages including Airflow, Databricks, SQL, Scipy, Scikit-learn and Pandas. Meanwhile, the Tibber platform is run by employing a microservices architecture on Amazon Web Services.
In order for you to thrive with us in your new role, you:
Have several years professional experience as Data Scientist.
Have a keen interest in forecasting and preferably have experience with time-series forecasting. Experience in the energy landscape and/or trading environment is a plus.
Are highly skilled with Python and SQL. Experience with the tools in our tech stack is a plus.
Enjoy working in teams, where knowledge sharing is key.
have clear and effective communication skills and enjoy working with other people, both remotely and in other locations.
Have a proactive mindset and you enjoy challenging tasks.
Preferably enjoy having a visible role. At Tibber we love innovation and the exchange of great ideas, so we will encourage you to speak your mind!
What we offer:
A startup journey of a lifetime.
A flexible working arrangement including working from home or other international offices.
A chance to being part of disrupting an industry.
A place where you'll meet friends for life.
A story to tell your grandkids.
The Tibber Mindset
Being on a mission to fundamentally change an industry also means being prepared for the unexpected. Tibber is a startup in the true sense of the word, which means we're on a journey of constant change ourselves. We work passionately with sustainability and a circular approach, both with our own products and in the entire ecosystem that is affected by everything we do. The well-known fact that all people are different, and far from everyone is a morning person – are the very reasons why we choose to work with flexible work hours.
Starting out with two passionate founders in 2016, we're now 250+ people working for Tibber in our offices in Stockholm, Førde, Berlin, Amsterdam and Helsinki, and with that number growing each week, we’re only just getting started. Through 2022 we will expand to new markets, and we are thrilled to be backed by investors like Balderton Capital, Eight Roads Ventures, Founders Fund, and Schibsted.
Tibber is a different company in a very traditional industry. We are aiming to create the best digital tool so that you as a user can apply new technologies to reduce energy consumption and power costs.
