Engineering Manager for Front End & Mobile
Eneco is evolving into a climate-neutral, digital-first energy company, driven by a product-focused digital division that seamlessly integrates product, data, and IT. The IT teams provide technical expertise to the product teams, closely aligned with the business. The Engineering Manager for Front End & Mobile, along with their Team Leads, oversees the 50+ front-end and mobile engineers responsible for all digital touchpoints that consumers interact with daily.
Driven by its mission of ‘sustainable energy for everyone,’ Eneco empowers consumers and businesses to pursue sustainability in their homes, workplaces, and lifestyles. The energy company focuses primarily on the radical electrification of industry, mobility, and the buildings and structures in our environment, the phasing out of natural gas, and the accelerated adoption of sustainable heating solutions such as geothermal energy, green gas, and green hydrogen.
Eneco operates in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and the United Kingdom under the brands Eneco, AgroEnergy, LichtBlick, Oxxio, and WoonEnergie. Headquartered in Rotterdam, the company experiences annual growth, serving approximately 5.6 million customers and generating a revenue of 5.2 billion euros in 2021. It produced a total of 14,735 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of energy, over ten percent more than in 2020, with around seventy percent derived from wind and solar energy.
“We need to take action now, to prevent the planet from warming beyond one and a half degrees, ensuring its habitability for future generations. Together with our customers, we strive to achieve climate neutrality by 2035.” – As Tempelman, Chief Executive Officer
Eneco’s digital products and propositions play a pivotal role in accelerating the energy transition and realizing the One Planet Plan. The roadmap includes, for instance, dynamic pricing—adjusting rates based on the current demand and supply of energy—and the Virtual Power Plant, a system connecting Eneco assets and third-party assets. This system enables Eneco to respond in real-time to energy demands.
Additionally, a platform for heat pumps, providing installers, technicians, and consumers with insights into the performance of heat pump installations, and an app-first service model are on the strategic agenda. To achieve these objectives, the digital organization is undergoing a thourough modernization with an emphasis on product development closely aligned with the business and with top-tier engineering. The Engineering Managers will play a significant role in this transformative process.
