Kaluza wants to power a world where net-zero is within everyone’s reach, by building the platform that will accelerate a sustainable, affordable and resilient energy transition. It’s a huge challenge, but often the toughest problems are the most rewarding to solve.
Since launching in 2019, Kaluza’s technology has been empowering some of the biggest energy suppliers to better serve millions of customers.
From revolutionising billing to smart electric vehicle charging, our real-time cloud platforms transform energy retailer operations, reducing cost to serve and boosting engagement. And most importantly, they enable suppliers' customers to drive decarbonisation with smart, low carbon technologies.
Where in the world of Kaluza will I be working?
You’ll be joining the Kaluza Platform Design community. We’re made up of squad embedded Product Designers and cross-functional practices in Brand, Content Design, Design Ops, Research and Service Design.
We’re dedicated to forming partnerships with Product and Engineering to solve complex problems. For us that means everything we do, we apply platform thinking — going beyond user centred design — looking at the big picture of ecosystems, designing for interconnectedness and simplifying services.
We're looking for a Design Director to lead our Platform Design team. This is a distributed, multidisciplinary team (London, Bristol, Edinburgh, Lisbon) consisting of Product Designers, Content Designers, Service Designers and User Researchers.
You’ll partner with Product, Engineering and Data to solve complex problems and simplify our services, bringing a human-centred approach to developing Kaluza’s products, services, and technologies. You’ll drive design thinking across the organisation, always considering the bigger ecosystem in which we operate.
Following two years of rapid growth, our 30+ person design team is now entering an exciting new chapter as we accelerate our global B2B SaaS business.
What will I be doing?
Reporting to our VP of Product, you’ll lead the Platform Design team to help Kaluza power a clean energy future. As a member of the leadership team, you’ll make strategic decisions that impact the business as a whole. You’ll support and develop the Platform Design team by increasing its influence and impact in Kaluza and beyond. You will drive an exceptional design team culture where you mentor, coach and grow future leaders.
