Tendril – Why Work For Us?


Tendril is defining data-driven Energy Service Management (ESM) for the evolving energy market.

Our open, cloud-based software platform provides the infrastructure, analytics, and understanding required to deliver personalized energy services. This targeted approach drives new business opportunities, delights consumers, and has led to some of the industry’s highest engagement and satisfaction rates.


At Tendril, we build community.

We’re active people with active minds

We bike to work. We hold walking meetings on the Boulder Creek Trail, located at the doorstep of our office.

We play games. Lots of games.

With more than 300 days sunshine a year, we shoot a lot of hoops and toss around the pigskin.

Indoors, we play ping-pong on the regular,

and it’s taken very seriously.

As are our games of Settlers of Catan.

Every Thursday, we battle it out for longest road and largest army.

We value ongoing career (and personal) development.

We know when to eat. The Tendril kitchen is always open. And every Friday, we nosh on pizza, sandwiches, and barbeque while listening to updates from the executive team on the state of the biz.

It’s rare these days

to find a company that cares as much about its employees (wait until you hear about the vacation policy), but at Tendril, the community soon starts to feel like your family.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Tendril.


    Applied online and quickly heard back from someone in the talent acquisition department who was very friendly and helpful. Had a preliminary phone interview with her, then a more detailed phone interview was scheduled with the manager of the department I was looking to work in. Interview took about an hour on the phone. Learned about the background of the company, the structure of the department I was interested in and the nature of the role, as well as a few industry-specific questions and explanation of my skills/background. The manager was pleasant and the interview seemed to go fairly well, although I was told that they had talked to over 100 candidates and still hadn't found a match. Approximately 2 months went by and I was eventually informed that they had chosen someone from within the company for the position.
