Based in Cambridge (UK) Green Energy Options (geo) specialise in the design, manufacture and support of energy management display and information systems for domestic markets across Europe and Australasia. Our focus is helping consumers understand and manage their domestic energy (and water) consumption. As such we design, manufacture and support consumer products. Established in 2006 geo is now one of the leading home energy management system companies in the world having sold well over 3 million systems.
With major contracts to supply the UK smart metering programme, multiple connected home contracts and a growing distribution channel the company is looking forward to a period of substantial growth. GEO takes pride in helping to develop the market, introducing new ideas and taking innovative approaches. To-date this has been very much product focused, however, the market is now looking for energy related information services and data-driven loyalty platforms. We have introduced our first “app-cessory”, are steadily building user numbers for our “energynote” platform and are developing a crowd content information service. Data services are therefore set to become a major component of this business.
We like to start from the user’s perspective – and this is no easy task. Energy is out of sight and so out of mind, which means this is very nearly a green field area for providing user information and feedback. We have conducted a lot of user research and continue to gather feedback from our most current products and services. We find that as people learn, so their needs and expectations change, which means this is a constantly evolving topic. Ours currently is a small team and the purpose of this position is to provide core expertise on user focused design spanning the whole user experience. You will be a key member of our creative team and be expected to help with the design and specification of user interfaces for our hardware and digital products and services.
Your salary will be competitive.
We work in a converted barn in Hardwick, a village just to the West of Cambridge with ample free parking and good village amenities.
