Genscape – Why Work For Us?

A nimble, innovation-minded company, Genscape thrives on increasing transparency across global commodity and energy markets

The world’s largest private and patented network of land, sea, and satellite monitors delivers exceptionally accurate market insight and intelligence

A Brief History: We Invented This Market

Genscape was founded in 1999 by two power traders who grew frustrated with the lack of transparency into the market – and set about inventing new technologies to expand high quality data access to more market participants than ever before.  

Over the next decade, Genscape invested heavily in research and development and continues to be awarded numerous patents.  Now operating the world’s largest private network of in-the-field monitors, Genscape recently added satellite reconnaissance, artificial intelligence, and maritime freight tracking to its data acquisition capabilities. Today, Genscape delivers its unique brand of unsurpassed market intelligence across the commodity and energy spectrum:  Power, Oil, Natural Gas, Petrochemical and NGL, Agriculture, Biofuels, and Maritime Freight.  

In 2011, Matthew Burkley joined Genscape as CEO, strengthening the leadership team, acquiring numerous companies, and building upon Genscape’s core brand value: to provide the highest quality fundamental data faster than any other organization, bar none.


Genscape provides its information through a subscription service. Customers include the majority of the top global commodity and energy trading hedge funds, banks, producers, marketers, as well as numerous government entities, including U.S. Department of Energy and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).  

Genscape doesn't claim to be the best place for everyone - the question is:

 Are we the best for you? 

People who thrive at Genscape possess the following qualities:

  • Intellectual Curiosity: Do you like solving puzzles? Developing a better understanding of how something works? Can you build a road map for solving a problem?
  • Self-starter: Are you able to take high-level direction and drive something forward without lots of management or direction?
  • Commitment to excellence and service: Does precision matter to you? Does providing a service to customers or other team members brings you joy?
  • Embrace Diversity: Can you work with a broad diversity of people in a non-hierarchical team-based environment? Do you like working in a collaborative environment?

If you answered “yes” to all of the above, Genscape may be great fit. Genscape is a dynamic organization that recognizes its team members are its greatest asset and critical to our success. Team members are empowered to develop their skills, expand their learning, and tap their creative abilities. We seek individuals who have an entrepreneurial spirit, enjoy autonomy and want to make a big impact where they work.

    One of the best part of Genscape is the culture and my immediate team. We are close, collaborative, creative, and encouraged to have ideas and try new things. My colleagues in the Boston office are energetic, smart and love to have fun. We are soon moving to a brand new office space that will be top of the line, we get catered lunch every other Wednesday, and have monthly happy hours among other sponsored employee events. Genscape also focuses on rewarding people for a job well done with opportunities for visibility to the leadership team, compensation and bonuses, and awards. Genscape is high growth and moves quickly in terms of product launches and acquisitions. It's a great fit for someone with an entrepreneurial spirit who can thrive in a fast-paced, sometimes ambiguous environment.


    I currently don't have any challenges or complaints about working at Genscape. It's been a rewarding experience!

    interviewed at Genscape (Boulder, CO) in June 2014.


    Applied online at their website, then contacted by an HR recruiter. Had two phone interviews: first with the recruiter, then with a company member, and then an on-site interview with the same member and one other. No technical questions. Casual atmosphere. Interviewers were friendly and not intimidating. All questions were based off my resume.

    Crude Storage Construction Slows in the Texas Permian Basin

    Oil-related infrastructure is expanding in Texas, the leading crude production state, but many investors have pumped the brakes on storage construction projects in the face of dropping crude prices. Construction could be slowing in some Texas regions and not others based on the grade of crude oil stored at each location.
