Employment Status: Full-Time Regular

We’re looking for new talent to join us as we reinvent the future of energy. Across BC, we have a diverse team of more than 2,500 employees we can’t do without, yet we’re growing as fast as ever.

You may think we’re your standard utility that delivers natural gas and electricity, but we’re also into cool, innovative energy solutions. Think carbon capture, renewable energies and lower-carbon transportation for a start. We believe in creating a cleaner, healthier tomorrow.

If you like meaningful work, a dynamic environment and forward-thinking colleagues, build your career with us. You’ll get opportunities to grow, lead, solve, and create. So what are you waiting for? Let’s rethink energy together.

With your skillset and experience, you’d fit right in as our Program Manager, Innovative Technologies.


Joining our Conservations and Energy Management department, you’ll design, develop and execute pilots projects and transition them into full-scale energy efficiency programs in order to advance pre-commercial natural gas demand-side management (DSM) technologies.


You’ve set the gold standard for delivering multi-stakeholder projects on time, on budget and within scope because you proactively identify project barriers and creative solutions to overcome challenges along the way. You’re drive and dedication to constantly push the boundaries for what’s possible is what truly makes your ideas shine, and we know you’ll translate that energy into shaping future of energy efficiency for our customers.  


Adhering to our value for innovation, we're committed to reducing our customer's greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent by the year 2030. This is your opportunity to bring more sustainable energy solutions to all British Columbians and join us in rethinking our energy future.

  • Develop rapport and effective working relationships with internal and external stakeholders.
  • Expand your knowledge of innovative DSM technology solutions, and become familiar with our customer base and strategic vision.
  • Identify, prioritize and advance new innovative technology solutions that have a significant opportunity to reduce natural gas consumption.
  • Meet challenges head-on while determining who needs to be involved with decisions, and how to best execute, document and communicate the necessary changes.

In year 2, you will:


  • Fine-tune the development cycle to increase participation and customer satisfaction.
  • Streamline operations within the framework of program terms and conditions and internal quality standards.
  • Become an industry expert by developing extensive networks with all market actors to drive the adoption of DSM innovative technologies.
  • Spearhead efficiencies to improve the execution of current and future projects.
  • Identify new natural gas DSM technologies and lead its advancement in the market.

What it takes:


  • A Bachelor’s degree in Business, Engineering or related discipline from a recognized program, plus a minimum of five years of recent, related experience with demonstrated success. A combination of education and experience may be considered.
  • Experience in project or construction management. Project Management Professional or Certified Energy Manager designations would be an asset.
  • Experience with delivering and communicating DSM programs and experience working in a regulated utility would be an asset.
