Question 1 of 25

Tell us about yourself.

"Well, I have always been interested in energy. When I was a kid, I wanted to be an inventor, and my heroes were Thomas Alva Edison and Nikola Tesla. So although I am not entirely new to working in the energy sector, I am very much interested in working with a company that is moving the needle to a more green and sustainable future. Working for a company whose values are aligned with mine, where we could make a real impact together, is my goal. Change comes from within, right?"
