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.

Cadeo is looking for an analytical individual who balances strong technical and communication skills, with the ability to work independently and collaboratively. The ideal candidate is a problem solver and analytical leader, comfortable engaging subject matter experts to ask the right questions, and skilled at compiling information into a logical framework.
The person who fills this role will guide the work of our analysts and support senior staff in producing high-quality, accurate deliverables that communicate actionable research findings with compelling narratives and graphics by executing research activities and writing up results. This role also offers client-facing opportunities: working directly with our clients to determine the appropriate analytical methods and options to meet their project needs, leading working sessions, crafting project scopes, serving as project manager and analytical lead for tasks or projects. The ideal candidate is one who tackles challenging research projects with optimism and curiosity and can apply a structured approach to complex problems where solutions are often not well-defined. This role will work closely with our Data Science and Market Analytics & Evaluation teams. 
 Typical projects include:
·       Developing work plans that chart the course of analytical work from raw data through completed deliverable.
·       Performing data management tasks to cleanse and organize complex and often-incomplete data for analysis.
·       Developing statistical or mathematical models that quantify demand impacts, energy savings, and/or adoption of technologies, including establishing the underlying methodology and seeking stakeholder feedback
·       Summarizing findings through visualization.
·       Analyzing data – interpret data summaries, models – to solve the problem at hand.
·       Presenting approach and findings to internal and external audiences.
This role will contribute to producing high-quality, accurate deliverables that communicate actionable findings with compelling narratives and visuals.
This is a full-time position located in Cadeo’s Portland, OR, Seattle, or Washington, DC office.
Note: all Cadeo staff are currently working from home; we anticipate returning to our office when it is safe to do so.

The successful candidate will commit to an equitable and inclusive workplace, including but not limited to; racial equity, accessibility for individuals with disabilities, use of gender inclusive language and cultural sensitivity.
