Employing the best people in the industry and living our company values and mission every day is what has propelled Flexitricity to the forefront of this industry and kept us there for the past decade.
We work in partnership with our customers—our Energy Partners—rather than just selling a piece of software or equipment. We think that understanding each customer’s unique requirements and having a manned 24/7 operation is vitally important, rather than solely relying on automation to deliver a critical service. We think that route to market providers like Flexitricity need traders, data scientists, algorithms and operators to capture the full opportunity. We believe automation is essential, but it’s not enough on its own.
