Marcel Smit

Chief Executive Officer

Marcel’s playground for the past 25 years has been the global enterprise software market. Early in his career, he cut his chops at Oracle and MicroStrategy. As a hands-on CEO for the past 15+ years, he’s worked with a number of young and fast-growing companies in Europe and the U.S.

Marcel enjoys “dress down” day, but more often than not you can find him in one of his unique suits, each of which has a specific theme. “Energy” is his favorite (well before he joined Energyworx!), as he is a strong believer in walking the extra mile. Another favorite suit is “Focus”, as life is too short to waste on things that don’t matter – and being focused means getting things done. The meaning of the “FIFO” suit is something that is best discussed over a glass or two of wine…

Marcel gets his energy from a broad range of music, working out, and traveling. Since he’s based both in San Francisco and The Netherlands, plenty of travel is guaranteed.

Marcel is passionate about building great teams, designing the company strategy, and executing the company’s go-to-market plans.

Everything we do is designed to accelerate the world’s transition to clean energy. We do this through technology innovation.

We live in a changing Energy World, moving away from fossil fuels transitioning in a complex new Energy Mix from demand to supply and a change from centralized to distributed generation. People and communities care about energy efficiency and want to be engaged in reducing their environmental impact. This requires a rethink of the structure and suppleness of the Smart Grid and its systems. Data is fuelling the Industry and Energyworx is putting these disparate data streams and stores to use with high tech energy intelligence, based on time series analytics and machine learning concepts, to solve today’s information challenges. We deliver value in days, rather than months or years. We therefore only work with the most talented people who share our DNA. Do you have what it takes?

  • You walk the extra mile
    You are intrinsically passionate about what you do. You focus on our clients and if necessary, work all night to deliver what you promised. You do not have a 9-5 mentality and you have an eye for every important detail.
  • You dare to be ingenious
    With clear vision and not afraid to use the latest innovations, you deliver the best solution possible within time and customer expectations. You can easily adapt to changing technologies and ways of working and dare to think differently.
