The world needs a different type of energy. Yours, for example. We're hiring a National Account Manager.

Job Title: Vice President - Business Development (National Accounts)

Location: Our Head Office is in Calgary, but you could operate from whichever Canadian city you live in!

Our Company Profile:
Canadian Energy is a well-established, successful, and rapidly growing stored and renewable energy company with locations all across Canada. We provide our customer’s solutions in the form of batteries, stored energy, DC power conversion, and renewable energy solutions all across Canada and all over the world.

We can tell you more about the company in the interview. Suffice it to say, we're awesome! You'll probably want to work here for free once you see how awesome we are. That's a joke. It’s important to have a sense of humor to work here too.

If you wake up in the morning with a fire inside to make something happen and build a great life for yourself and others in the greatest country in the world, then this could be a good fit. If you want to disappear into a corporate cubical - or you prefer to follow instead of lead, this isn't for you.

We strictly adhere to the ‘no negative energy’ rule. Big egos and bad attitudes don't succeed here. We just get after it and try to have some fun along the way. But make no mistake - this is a challenging job. If you possess a positive, "whatever it takes" attitude, then you can experience a rewarding and long career here with us.
