Position: Manager, People and Culture

Ecotagious combines big data with social psychology to help utility companies meet their conservation targets and/or increase customer satisfaction. Ecotagious provides utilities’ residential customers with personalized information on how much energy they are using on each of their major appliances, how their usage compares to their peers and what specifically each customer can do if they wanted to save. This feedback is generated from Ecotagious’ proprietary smart meter data analytics that disaggregate smart meter data into appliance-level insights. Ecotagious Inc. is a fast-growing private company based in Vancouver, Canada.
