Job Description

About us:

RIZM was founded on the belief that a future where humanity matches its climate goals is fundamentally more desirable and exciting than one where we are not. We also believe that industrial companies will transform their energy supply if there is a way to do so while staying competitive.

The energy sector is currently undergoing a fundamental transformation. In the past, energy decisions were made based on the assumption that energy costs would remain relatively stable. However, the rise of renewable energies has introduced volatility in both energy production and prices, requiring companies to adapt. Our SaaS solution helps businesses navigate this transformation by providing data-driven planning and operating support. We have demonstrated with companies like the BMW Group that this shift holds enormous potential. For instance, we have shown that, by using our software, the BMW Group has uncovered the potential of hundreds of millions in savings.

Expanding access to Software that enables companies to benefit from the new energy world is a critical step in realizing our long-term plan of saving the industrial sector and our planet.
While we hope that one day, every industrial company will base its energy decisions and supply on smart algorithms, realizing this future still requires a lot of selling.
