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 supplier 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 Risk and Compliance community - a 2nd line team of technical leaders and experts focused on managing the risk and compliance landscape in a futuristic manner that propels Kaluza toward  its aim of providing high quality services to customers while revolutionising and decarbonising the energy grid. We design disruptive and innovative risk and compliance strategies that allows Kaluza to succeed while maintaining regulatory compliance and expertly managing operational, technology and business-related risks.

  • Providing a balanced, lean and efficient view on risk and compliance in relation to commercial objectives 
  • Assessing, analysing and evaluating risks as well as the related impact to the business
  • Partnering with key stakeholders across the business to guide them with governance, regulatory, compliance advice and control implementation (in line with policy) advice

  • Performing regular Exco and Board reporting on the risks with a view of KRI’s and/or KPI’s 
  • Undertaking corporate governance involving external risk reporting to stakeholders where required e.g. support for SOC2 reports
  • Horizon scanning and up-to-date regulatory awareness to inform management of potential changes, threats and opportunities
  • Engaging with customer Regulatory and Risk teams to support management in understanding requirements and translating it back to the technology platform(s)
  • Providing support, education and training to staff to build risk awareness within the organisation

Is this the job for me?

Ideally you may have/be:

  • High awareness of risk management, including developing governance, consistent processes and a thriving risk culture in the organisation
  • Experience in Audit, Assurance, Compliance or Risk Management 
  • Strong stakeholder management, documentation and presentation skills
  • The ability to grasp and articulate technical concepts to technical and non-technical audiences
  • Analytical thinking and the ability to manage complex detail without losing sight of the big picture
  • At least one risk, audit, or governance certification e.g. CISA, CISSP, CRISK, CGEIT or equivalent 
  • Knowledge of relevant Frameworks (e.g. ISO 27001 and others, COBIT, NIST etc)
  • Technical/Infrastructure knowledge i.e. detailed knowledge of some of the following:
    • SaaS Platforms
