The energy industry is undergoing the largest transformation since industrialisation at an unprecedented rate of change and we are positioning ourselves to be at the heart of that change.
Our aim is to be the leading global provider of solutions that enable customers to release £30bn of value per annum from distributed energy resources (DERs). We are building a Software as a Service (SaaS) subscription business with a global addressable market of £2.4 billion per annum, by digitally connecting hundreds of thousands of DERs with energy markets.
We have already attained a market leading position and KrakenFlex is a recognised thought leader and innovator in the industry. Our efforts have not gone unnoticed and we are pleased to announce that we now have the full support and backing of Octopus Energy, an award-winning UK energy supplier who share our passion and values.
Sennen has recently combined forces with KrakenFlex! Our vision is to transform infrastructure through technology together, for a more sustainable world. Our mission is to become the go-to technology provider for renewable energy operators who are serious about safety, automation and efficiency at scale.
Our technology has two primary functions. For offshore wind farm operators, our sophisticated modular solution is designed to manage marine coordination, work management and health and safety control through a single integrated platform. For asset owners and funders, our software enables asset managers to streamline reporting, improve data quality and manage risk and compliance.
As a company, we seek to collaborate, deliver and grow. We listen to our customers and each other in order to offer support and share our expertise. We have trust and confidence in our team and let our creativity flourish. We don’t have all the answers and are always learning. Underpinning everything we do is a commitment to help deliver the energy transition to combat climate change and limit environmental destruction.

The reason why we don't advertise is because we honestly have a degree of flexibility and would never want salary to be a reason why someone doesn't apply to Octopus - what's more important to us is finding the right octofit!

If this sounds like you then we'd love to hear from you.
Studies have shown that some groups of people, like women, are less likely to apply to a role unless they meet 100% of the job requirements.
