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.

    I worked at Tendril full-time (More than a year)


    Excellent engineering processes, management and agile. Suggestions for process changes, technologies utilized, architectural changes, etc from engineers are embraced by management. Methods of implementation are discussed in an open forum with the scrum team and all voices are respected. Very effective agile implementation. Well defined definitions of "done" and ability to define your estimates. Great team work. Great place to work and expand your engineering skills. Some of the smartest people I have ever worked with, particularly Mark Koch. Overall: A+


    When I was with Tendril, there seemed to be a lot of employee turn over. I never really figured out why...

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    I applied throug a recruiter, the process take 2.5w, was because the manager was out of the town, frst is a phone screen with the manager, second round an onsite interview with 5-6 people, 3 of them are software developers, others are manager. Basically some whiteboard exercises about web and REST API, a code review with unit testing exercises and a couple of basic java questions. Engineers are great people seems to be very friendly and polite, facilities looks great.
