  • Germany

Venquis currently have an opening with one of our longest standing partners who have an opening for a Principal to join their team on a full time, permanent basis.

Do you want to transform the challenges of digitisation into the energy supply solutions of the future? Leverage the digital potential of their clients with customised platforms, architectures, strategies, and organisations, and drive key innovations. Enrich their unique team with your individual strengths. Together with their partners, they turn digital visions into reality. Become an essential part of their world-class global energy supply and sustainability network, making a difference for their clients.

Your Role

As a Principal Energy Supply, you will work directly with our client’s team and their partners on projects to unlock value from electricity and gas sales, customer solutions, and energy networks. You will build new or improved distribution and network solutions that address modernisation and digitisation needs. Develop new solutions for end customers and use data and digital platforms to open up new revenue streams. You will be responsible for the continuous development of their offerings, building a team of internal and customer-oriented IT experts in energy supply companies, creating a network with new partners, and expanding their existing offerings with comprehensive technical and solution expertise.

What you will be doing:

  • Provide technical support for customers in the energy industry, focusing on energy sales, grids, and customer solutions; from requirements analysis and target architecture definition through to implementation.
  • Translate business concepts into solution designs for implementation teams (e.g., detailing use cases, capability mapping, requirements engineering, process design, data domains, and flow analyses).
  • Define and design self-developed and commercial off-the-shelf solutions for customer service, sales, and energy networks, including CRM, billing, pricing, forecasting, planning, and logistics solutions, as well as digital data platforms and tools for the analysis and use of energy data.
  • Advance clients’ digital agendas to develop novel capabilities and future-proof their data and system landscapes.
  • Manage large transformation programs by steering implementation activities and guiding delivery teams (e.g., business analysts, developers).
  • Improve delivery quality by developing and sharing methodological skills.
  • Develop best practices for delivery teams in the utility industry based on deep solution expertise and extensive utility experience.
  • Further develop energy platforms, technical capabilities, and service offerings in energy supply to create new opportunities for energy customers globally.
  • Build and lead a team of energy supply experts who work directly with customers but also develop prototypes in their own environments.

This is How You Can Make a Difference

  • An above-average degree in (business) informatics, business administration, energy engineering, or a related field.
  • At least eight years of experience in the context of energy suppliers, software development, and management of implementation projects in the energy sales, energy grid, or energy IT industry.
  • Strong leadership experience of larger teams of business analysts or developers across multiple (sub)projects and workstreams.
  • Theoretical and practical experience in the design, implementation, and configuration of industry-standard energy supply software (e.g., SAP, Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics, Powercloud).
  • Excellent analytical and conceptual skills, a drive to achieve high-quality results, and enjoyment in working with high-performing teams.
  • Advanced communication and presentation skills to align teams and organisations around common goals and present concepts and projects to IT stakeholders and business partners.
  • An active network with energy companies, system houses, and/or system integrators is an advantage.
  • Proficiency in written and spoken German and English.
