Who we are:

The vision of a planet powered by reliable, clean energy isn’t what keeps us up at night; it’s what gets us out of bed. At Opus One, we develop software solutions that change how electrical energy is used and delivered in an evolving modern grid. From microgrids that keep things running in the event of an outage to enabling new infrastructure to support electric vehicles and, using Tesla's latest battery technologies to help accelerate the integration of renewable energy, we are at the forefront of this evolution. We are helping electric utilities to optimize their operations, reduce costs and lower the grid’s carbon footprint by facilitating higher levels of renewable generation such as solar and wind, towards 100% clean energy. 

We believe that some of the best talent in the tech and energy sectors share our passion for delivering technology that matters, and that will make a difference in our lifetime and beyond. We want to work with people who believe in the` potential to transform the world into a better place.
