About the job

At Modo Energy, we're on a mission to build the information architecture for the energy transition - we're the most accessible and comprehensive place to come to for information on the global energy transitions to net zero.

We're a dedicated and passionate team building a category-defining business, working on one of the most important missions the world needs. We are looking for individuals who love product-building, want to work with pace at a mission-oriented startup, and will collaborate with us in shaping the culture of a rapidly growing team.

Who are we looking for?

The Market Analyst positions will be the first hire into each of our US markets research teams and will report to the Director of Content and Community. Our Markets team are the driving force behind the incisive insights and articles we publish, which help our customers to get to grips with the ever-changing energy market landscape. And we need someone to take us from zero to one to bring insightful analysis to our customers on the ERCOT market.

Though every day will be different, you can expect to spend time:

  • Creating analytical content in various formats (research articles, videos, reports) to communicate insights to our subscribers and readers.
  • Sourcing, processing, analyzing and interpreting large & complex datasets to support both research and the wider company.
  • Shaping and supporting the growth of the Markets team in ERCOT.
  • Getting to know our subscribers, building your network, and staying up to date with the latest developments in the clean energy industry.
  • Work collaboratively with teams across the company on customer success, content creation, product and more.

We are looking for someone who has:

  • Knowledge of or interest in how the energy system works and how power is traded in either ERCOT, PJM or CAISO - and the ability and willingness to learn more quickly.
  • Experience in writing clearly and concisely to distill and communicate complex topics in human and accessible language.
  • Excellent quantitative and analytical skills - discover, explore, visualize, and communicate numerical data. Prior experience in coding and data processing is advantageous.
  • Ability to think critically and develop thoughtful opinions by cutting through the data, extracting key patterns, applying skepticism to the claims of industry participants and asking insightful questions.
  • Is excited to help build a team from the ground up.

We'd love it if you also have:

  • Experience with at least one programming language (e.g. Python, R).
  • Experience communicating your ideas through video or a strong willingness to learn.
