LevelTen Energy, Inc. (“LTE”) is a software company headquartered in Seattle that provides multiple products (the “Platform”), including those designed to facilitate renewable energy PPAs (“PPA Marketplace”), PPA contract monitoring (“Performance Monitoring”), and the purchase & sales of renewable energy assets (“Asset Marketplace”) in a highly efficient manner. Each Platform product incorporates sophisticated analytic engines to forecast value & risk associated with individual PPA and asset offers.

LTE’s central product is the PPA Marketplace, where individual project offers (price; P50 generation profile; COD) are compared against a range of internal and external forward curves, as well as an internal stochastic risk model to calculate unique value & risk forecasts for each offer. Current market coverage includes the US, Canada, and approximately 20 European countries.

You will be responsible for refining existing approaches and developing new approaches for new geographies, new products, and in response to changing market & policy conditions. You will oversee all technical work performed by the Analytics team and will work closely with the Product and Engineering teams to integrate analytics approaches into the Platform software. In short - you will be the LTE “thought leader” for all analytics theory and applications.

  • Familiarity with US and European power market fundamentals required; other global markets a plus.

  • Detailed familiarity and recent experience with renewable energy PPAs and settlement mechanics, including a strong understanding of contractual options to allocate risk. Experience with other forms of energy contracting (eg storage, gas/tolling, hedging instruments) a plus.
  • Familiarity with renewable energy project development and financing.
  • You are strong people manager who will serve as a mentor to your team. You combine high expectations and accountability with professionalism and poise. You bring the best out of your team and make proactive efforts to help them advance their knowledge and careers.
