About us
At Voltus, our mission is to be the Distributed Energy Platform that fulfills the promise of the energy transition. The Voltus platform connects any distributed energy resource (DER) to any energy market across the US and Canada, providing flexibility, reliability, and resilience to the grid while generating revenue for our partners. By partnering with industry leaders and the DER ecosystem, we are building the decarbonized, distributed, decentralized, and digitized energy system of the future.
Voltus is a fully distributed company and this job is remote. You have the flexibility to work from anywhere, but you must overlap with the Eastern Time zone for at least 4 hours of the workday (9am-5pm).
Job description
At Voltus you will work on customer-facing products that make our customers’ lives easier while they get paid for using less energy. You will also help create tools that allow our team of energy experts to manage complex distributed resources in wholesale energy markets. You will be responsible for contributing to the overall design process—from research to concept, development, and delivery of clear and compelling interfaces and services that get the job done. You will work within cross-functional teams of product managers and developers to deliver great experiences to our users.
You have professional experience designing useful tools that bring clarity to complex information and data sets. You can help define our design strategy and think big about our product suite, but still sweat the nitty-gritty details of each feature. You are excited to help us refine our existing products, mature our budding design system, and grow design culture at Voltus. You are bright, gritty, and good, and you want to work with others like you.
You will help our Applications team build interfaces and services that allow humans to interact with the Voltus platform. You will work on tools that help us to better communicate with our customers, meet performance goals during energy market dispatches, process payments quickly, manage complex distributed resources in wholesale energy markets, and bring clarity and context to our growing supply of energy data.

  • Get involved in user research and usability testing.
  • Actively contribute to our design system, help determine whether components are single-use or multi-use, and provide recommendations regarding new component requests.

What’s important to us
