There’s never been a better time to be at AGL
It’s an extraordinary time for the energy sector. A time of complex challenges and unprecedented opportunities.
At AGL we have the scale, resources and ambition to take the lead and make real the possibilities the future holds. We’re renewing and expanding our portfolio of sources and products to make them more sustainable, reliable, affordable and useful for all Australians.
That’s what we call progress. To achieve it,

we’re bringing together people with unique stories, perspectives, and talent - and we need yours too.
At AGL, we believe progress is powered by our people. Let us empower you to make a positive difference and help bring progress to life.
About the Role

Innovation and personalization are essential for the future of energy and as AGL’s relevance to customers continues to change we are dedicated to establishing new product offerings and business models. This is the mission for the Emerging Products team.
As an Innovation Lead for Emerging Products you will report directly to the Ideation Program Manager. Responsible for conducting ideation activities with business or external stakeholders you will generate new opportunities to feed the innovation pipeline, conduct customer research and execute fast, low-cost experiments to test customer demands for all new ideas.
Your key responsibilities will be to:
plan, organize and execute a systematic program of idea generation activities to continually replenish the innovation pipeline idea pool
collate, manage and screen all ideas from idea generation activities for idea backlog
conduct exploratory customer research activities to understand customer problems, unmet needs and pain points
run fast, low-cost experiments to test customer demand for new product and service opportunities
You will be joining a fast-paced, high performing innovation team and working closely with Product Managers across the Product and Portfolio team.
About You

You are an entrepreneurial thinker and operator; fast, scrappy and hustle hard with limited resources at your disposal. Data trumps opinion, so you’ll be savvy with data, analytics and insights driven decision making. Finally, you are a collaborator, who works best in a team setting as part of a high performing group.
To be successful you’ll have:
practically applied experience in Lean Startup and/or Human Centred Design. Rapid Prototyping experience would also be advantageous
demonstrated experience leading and facilitating workshops for tangible outcomes
demonstrated comfort working with early stage, ill-formed concepts and ideas
prior experience working with stakeholders of all levels and managing their expectations
This is a unique 12 month fixed term opportunity at the forefront of product development and innovation. Lead the exploration in finding emerging product opportunities for AGL.

About Us
It truly is an exciting time to be part of AGL Energy as we lead the way in generating sustainable energy solutions for all Australians.
With a heritage of over 175 years and listed in the top 50 companies on the ASX, AGL offers a genuinely diverse, safe and supportive work environment, where "actions not words" fosters a culture of achievement and personal development.
At AGL, we’re committed to diversity and inclusion, so we encourage applications from Indigenous Australians, people with disability, people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people.
