  • Experience programming with Python
  • Experience working with GIT and GITOPS, and building CI/CD pipelines with Jenkins or AWS code pipelines
  • Product-oriented mindset
  • Proven track record of efficiently designing, developing, and releasing software products both independently and collaboratively

A little about E Source

Since 1986, E Source has focused on partnering with utilities to help their customers save electricity. That novel approach defined the art of electric end-use efficiency—better known as energy efficiency. We’ve expanded that concept to include a broader perspective of sustainability for utilities that deliver electricity, natural gas, and water.

We work to enhance relationships with the people utilities serve, achieve the next generation of savings, and lead the carbon-reduction effort. We help utilities think differently, make data useful, and learn from the best strategies across the industry. Our people, our insights, and our network help our clients and give them the assurance that the programs they implement are the most effective.


  • We offer excellent insurance packages, including medical, dental, and vision plans; company-paid life insurance; company-paid long- and short-term disability insurance; and medical and dependent-care flexible spending plans.
  • We provide a flexible time off (FTO) program; E Source employees can take as many paid days off per year as they need, with manager approval, while fulfilling their work obligations and ensuring proper coverage of their responsibilities.
  • We offer flexible schedules, flexible work locations, and a paid parental leave benefit.
  • We provide a 401(k) plan (or RRSP for Canadian employees) with a 3% employer match.

The budgeted salary for this position is $160,000 to $199,000 CAD + annual bonus. Actual pay will be adjusted based on experience.

This person can work remote, a hybrid schedule, or from one of our physical office locations.
