About Cadeo 

Cadeo works at the intersection of policy, markets, and technology. We support utilities, public agencies, and private industry in their efforts to advance energy efficiency and clean energy resources for a cleaner, more sustainable future. To this end, we characterize markets, analyze distribution channels, assess emerging technologies, and analyze policy impacts. Through these services, we provide our clients with actionable recommendations and the ongoing guidance to implement them. Our approach is simple. We listen first, ask next, and answer last. 

Our Culture

Each of us at Cadeo helps shape the culture we want to share. Our work is our craft—something we want to get better at every day. So we take it seriously. To us, that doesn’t mean formality; it means a commitment to continual development, both individually and collectively; it means having the desire to know what works better and the humility to recognize something probably does.

As we continue to grow, our culture will no doubt evolve, but the following core principles will not: 
We start with the premise that we don’t know. That way, we listen better. 
We value candor, curiosity, and clarity. 
We seek feedback. Really. 
We share knowledge. Relentlessly. 
We guard against the creep of bureaucracy.
And, oh yeah, if you want a standing desk, we don’t ask for a doctor’s note.

About the Role:

Cadeo is seeking a consultant to support our projects in energy efficiency and distributed energy resources for utilities and government agencies.

·       Independently or collaboratively developing analytical models that quantify demand impacts, energy savings, and/or adoption of technologies.
·       Analyzing data – interpret data summaries, models – to solve the problem at hand.
·       Summarizing findings through visualization,
·       Presenting approach and findings to internal and external audiences.
·       Developing documentation for client-facing analytical tools and work products.
