Junior Modeller

Combining a passion for energy and advanced modelling

About the Job

Quintel's key product, the Energy Transition Model (ETM), is used by thousands of users ranging from governments and grid operators to consultants and students. They use the model to create realistic plans for the future of their region or country towards a clean, affordable and reliable energy system. The ETM is fully open-access, web-based and is regarded by many as the 'de-facto standard' for energy system simulation in the Netherlands and abroad.

With the number of (high profile) users of the Energy Transition Model rapidly increasing, we are expanding our team to keep up with the growing demands put on our model and organisation.

As a modeller, you will contribute to the continued performance, development, improvement and maintenance of the Energy Transition Model. Together with a team of passionate modellers and software developers, you will be working on a wide range of topics. These can be technical: for example researching the ins and outs of a new promising technology and adding it to the ETM. Other times these are more conceptual: for example improving the workflow around the ETM to better support its user in the challenging decision they have to make in the energy transition.

We envision a full-time position where time will be divided between technical work, project management and supporting our userbase.

We are looking for someone who:

  • has a professional working proficiency in Dutch and English
  • has a higher education degree, preferred Master of Science, with an excellent academic record
  • has 0 - 2 years of relevant experience
  • has strong analytical and quantitative skills
  • is passionate about the energy transition and modelling
  • is a creative, innovative thinker and has a "can do" mentality
  • has strong communication skills and is intrinsically motivated to deliver excellence
  • enjoys problem solving and in-depth projects with our team of experts

What we offer

  • an inspiring work environment with a strong sense of purpose
  • an extensive network of governments, grid operators, consultants and other energy experts
  • excellent salary and benefits
  • excellent training possibilities
  • an office location in the historic Amsterdam Canal District
  • possibility of hybrid working (Monday is our office day)


You will work from our office in the center of Amsterdam. You will travel around the Netherlands, and possibly Europe.

About us

We help our clients answer questions like: "What does a climate neutral energy system for my area look like?". The ETM is used by governments, grid operators, consultants, NGO's, academics and others to research their options to bring down greenhouse gas emissions. Since the energy transition is a highly collaborative effort, the ETM is rapidly becoming a factual framework for discussions between various stakeholders in the energy transition.

Quintel develops the Energy Transition Model and is a Dutch company, with an office in the centre of Amsterdam. Our team gets the work done during office hours, so that we can enjoy our evenings, with the occasional after-work drinks.
