Community Manager

As Essent IT we drive the energy transition. Our tech people make it happen. As a Community Manager you strategize and execute community engagement initiatives that align with our company objectives, with a particular focus on the IT community.
Using smart thinking, perspectives and solutions to help our customers take the next step in energy. That motivates you. Apply for this Community Manager vacancy in Den Bosch.
The growing number of households with solar panels and electric cars has made our customers’ energy usage more volatile. Moreover, the ‘energy landscape’ is changing rapidly, triggering the need for new services and solutions. The rate of change will probably increase even further. While stability, security and robustness remain as important as ever, flexibility, scalability and changeability are becoming increasingly important. This means Essent IT will have to improve itself drastically and take on a different role than before. Digital services play a critical role in Essent’s strategy and Essent IT must take the lead in this digital transformation.
