Job Description

Job title: Product Manager

Location: London (Including Hybrid)

Part time available? No

Salary: £55,000 - £80,000

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 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 working on Kaluza’s Flex platform. Designed to be the nervous system connecting energy retailers, grid operators, and consumers, Flex will aid us in creating the distributed, consumer-centric, dynamic energy system of the future. Bridging the gap between distributed renewable generation and smart devices, it helps consumers shift their energy consumption to times when there's more renewable energy. This not only saves them money, but enables society as a whole to meet the challenge of decarbonising transport and residential heating/cooling. We’re directly driving the energy transition by building the innovative technology behind unique, market-leading customer propositions like Vehicle to Grid and Charge Anytime Energy Plan with our energy retailer partners.

You’ll be joining the Kaluza Product community. We’re a group of Product Managers and Leaders focused on translating complex needs into simple and innovative solutions that solve real customer and business problems. 

What will I be doing?

As a Product Manager for our Japan team, you will take charge of building products and capabilities that enable Japanese Energy Service Providers (ESPs) and vehicle manufacturers (also known as “Auto OEMs”) to build, bring to market and scale some of the very first smart charging propositions for electric vehicle drivers in Japan. Your team will work closely with internal Kaluza teams as well as external software engineering teams to configure Kaluza’s core capabilities in the flexibility space and bring value to our Japanese ESP clients and Auto OEM partners as well as their end consumers, while also addressing their unique operational needs. Additionally, along with our Client Success and Partnerships team, you will foster strong relationships with key client and partner stakeholders and ensure that insights acquired through these engagements are effectively disseminated among your team and other Flex teams, so that we can ensure continuing success for the platform.


  • Drive the creation of your team’s Objectives and Key Results and provide the product leadership necessary to help your team achieve amazing outcomes
  • Collaborate with the Product Marketing and Partnerships team to gain a deep understanding of the Japanese energy and electric vehicle market as it relates to flexibility propositions
  • Work with our amazing software engineers, data analysts and designers to create solutions that drive value for energy retailers/utilities, are commercially viable for the business, and feasible for your product team to deliver
  • Own, refine and maintain a prioritised product backlog for your team
  • Work with your team to build and measure the right metrics for product success and nurture a culture of learning from data 
  • Find the right channels to remove impediments for your team
  • Run agile ceremonies including sprint planning, retrospectives, backlog refinement and showcases for your team
  • Radiate information, improve transparency and communicate effectively to internal and external audiences

Is this the job for me?

You’re the right person for us if you…

  • Have 3+ years experience as a Product Manager, preferably within an agile delivery framework
  • Have experience working in the energy or residential flexibility space
  • Excel at written and visual communication to both technical and commercial audiences
  • Are comfortable working in a fast-paced, dynamic environment where fast iteration and experimentation are the norm
  • Are a patient and tenacious problem solver who is willing to roll up their sleeves to learn and understand a domain despite limited knowledge or experience in it
  • Are passionate about decarbonisation and are highly driven to achieve your professional & personal goals
  • Are a team player who embraces collaboration and knowledge sharing within your team and across different teams - but recognize that the “buck stops with you” on all team decisions
  • (Highly desirable) Have experience working in a Japanese business context, or have business fluency in Japanese
