Product Manager for Renewable Energy SaaS-Solution (d/f/m)

Product / Design

Exnaton is a spinoff company of ETH Zurich which offers software for renewable energy to energy companies. Our software enables energy providers to enable consumers to share renewable energy. Users of our software can track their energy consumption and buy renewable energy from their neighbors, which makes investing in the energy transition simple and fun! Our software processes smart meter data and computes smart real-time prices for locally produced energy which make renewable energy financially more attractive. End-users receive an app that maps the sources of their energy, making their electricity consumption more understandable.

Our small team consists of a diverse mix of engineers and business developers and we are all motivated to use technology to create a sustainable impact in our society. We are aiming to become Europe’s leading software provider for energy sharing and we are looking for motivated and passionate people to join that mission.


At Exnaton you will play a key role in designing and delivering a product that makes renewable energy more attractive. We are building a SaaS platform which enables utility companies to offer dynamic tariffs, to bill decentralized energy resources and to offer energy sharing to their customers. Among others, your main responsibilities in this role are the following:

  • Collecting and analyzing customer needs and translating them into product features in close collaboration with our sales and engineering teams
  • Understanding and collecting legal requirements around energy market operations, market communication, and smart metering in EU countries / Switzerland (e.g. Marktkommunikation, Messstellenbetriebsgesetz)
  • Conceptualizing product features around pricing mechanisms, energy analytics, and add-on services to our platform
  • Refining our product vision, and deriving and prioritizing product requirements for different customer groups and national markets
  • Manage the product roadmap and accompany our SCRUM development process to help us design and develop the best product on the market
  • Supporting business development with industry partners (e.g. SAP, bpc, Theben), customer workshops, and integration projects


We define ourselves by a culture of collaboration and ownership. We’re looking for a driven, capable, and thoughtful person to add to our mission. The main qualifications we expect you to have are the following:

  • Degree in technology management, industrial engineering or energy-related field (profound technical understanding of technology and software is required!)
  • 2+ years industry experience in the energy sector or a software company
  • Relevant experience in product management, ideally in utility company/energy provider or related energy companies
  • Interest in ICT and sustainability, basic understanding of renewable energy and energy systems
  • Pragmatic mindset, make quick decisions, and clearly prioritize on what moves the needle
  • Fluency in English and German (required for the interaction with our existing customers, other languages are a plus as well)


Our hierarchy is flat and communication is direct, which means that we operate and learn fast, as a team. At Exnaton, you can expect the following:

  • Competitive salary and equity package
  • Flexible working hours (and partially location) as we believe in ownership and trust
  • Regular team events and exchange with other startups at ETH Zurich’s RocketHub
  • Fun building cool products for a really important purpose with a cool team

We are dedicated to fostering diversity and to combat discrimination. We strongly encourage individuals from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech to apply and intend to consider all applications equally regardless of sex, ethnicity, ancestry, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, or gender identity. We won't inquire about how you identify or if you've experienced discrimination, but if you want to tell your story, we are all ears.
