Finance Analyst / Commercial Analyst - Pricing

Full time, Melbourne 

Our purpose

Energy Locals is turning the traditional energy model on its head. For a start, we don’t earn more money when our customers use more power. We provide our customers with much-needed transparency in an industry that’s famous for confusion. We’re backed by robust investors and are proud of the work we’re doing to clean up the energy market. Our partners include world-leading companies that are disrupting the energy sector, such as Sonnen and Tesla, by offering products that change the way customers produce, store and use power.

What you’ll do

You’ll initially take on our pricing function, which entails a wide-range of responsibilities that span customer tariffs through to market settlements and some aspects of compliance reporting. Once you’ve demonstrated your talent, we’d like you to broaden your role while retaining oversight for the pricing area. 

You’ll be involved in:

  • Pricing strategy: identifying and evaluating ways in which our pricing structure could better serve our customers.
  • Tariff design and production: mapping cost inputs and producing tariffs in line with our pricing strategy.
  • Integration of tariffs with external systems: integrating our customer tariffs with government comparison websites and our billing platform.
  • Market settlements: wholesale settlements via AEMO and the payment of distribution charges and environmental costs.
  • Internal controls: management of rigorous controls over critical areas such as network tariff reconciliation and market prudential requirements. 
  • Forecasting and reporting: usage forecasting and the production of accurate reports for our key partners and certain government agencies.
  • Project management: setting up and running critical projects such as annual reprice events.
