Senior Optimisation Analyst
Limejump Ltd.


About Limejump

Optimising a 100% renewable energy future is our vision.

Limejump is a technology platform that manages a large renewable energy network. Our portfolio delivers clean energy to businesses and homes, using renewables and stored energy when it’s needed to meet demand.

We connect and manage 100% renewable energy through the intelligent control of renewable generators, such as wind turbines and solar panels. We work closely with renewable asset owners, buying their energy and then selling it onto the UK’s grid, giving them simple access to the power market. But, the sun isn’t always shining and the wind isn’t always blowing. We must therefore capture energy for times when there is high demand. By harnessing big data and renewable technology, we accelerate the UK’s transition to net zero carbon emissions.


The Role

The Senior Optimisation Analyst will be responsible for delivering independent insight into Limejump’s portfolio to identify major opportunities and risk areas in order to drive performance improvement for the business.
