Amber is a new way to buy power, designed for a world powered by renewable energy.

We give customers direct access to the real-time wholesale electricity price as it varies every 30 minutes, and the technology to shift more of their energy usage to the times when cheaper renewables are available in the grid.

It's a cheaper way to buy power and the fastest way for Australia to reach 100% renewable energy.

We are growing rapidly and have thousands of customers who love what we are doing and a great product that will play a significant role in driving Australia towards a renewable future.

We are backed by Australia's leading VCs (including Square Peg Capital and Main Sequence Ventures), impact-focused investors and individuals, and most recently by Commonwealth Bank and NRMA.

We're now at a critical moment in taking the business to real scale as we disrupt a huge market for the better.

We're committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace and a great culture of people who love coming to work to build a better world.

You'd be a part of a growing team of over 70, with expertise across energy, technology, marketing, and operations.

About the Role Build a balanced and high performing team, through recruiting from a wide range of backgrounds, experience levels, etc Grow the individual capabilities of team members through continuous professional development, training, and performance reviews Cultivate a highly collaborative environment and foster psychological safety Contribute to technical and product strategy, especially where they touch on the capabilities (or gaps) of your team Contribute to scalable and repeatable team processes and documentation (ie onboarding, perf review structures, etc) Key Requirements At least two years of engineering management experience, OR four years at a tech/team lead level, with a strong interest in people.

Strong verbal and written communications skills built on a foundation of empathy for your fellow humans.

Enough technical grounding to participate in problem solving and design discussions at all levels of the organisation.

What we believe a great team looks like We put the customer at the centre of everything we do.

Whatever it is we are doing, it's always with a viewpoint that this will help our customers, whether that's 10,000 customers right now, or 1 million customers in the future.

We are willing to take calculated risks on bold ideas.

We seek to do things differently and are willing to try creative ideas if we believe there is significant upside with a culture where we recognise that not all ideas will succeed.

Hypothesis driven approach.

We develop hypotheses of actions we can take to improve the business and then set up the systems to quickly test if that hypothesis was correct.

We seek insight.

We seek to disaggregate the data to draw out the insight to inform our next hypothesis.  We prioritise the biggest opportunities.

We test a variety of ideas but quickly cut what isn't working and double down on what is.  We continually learn and improve.

We keep track of what we have learnt so that we continually improve and never make the same mistake twice.  We create leverage.

We believe that the key to creating an efficient business at scale is to create leverage in everything we do.

Whether that's implementing a better processes or developing a new technology to solve a problem faster.

We have fun.

We love coming to work, and interacting with our colleagues and customers.

If we spot an opportunity for a joke, or to do something nice for someone, then we take it.
