Industrial-strength energy efficiency and decarbonization starts with exceptional people. Today, we would like to introduce you to Jinsy Oommen, a Cascadian that leads and inspires her team to continually strive towards the triple bottom line of people, planet, and profits. Jinsy has been trailblazing at Cascade for almost nine years, developing the best energy efficiency software in the industry, as well as advising on Cascade’s DEIA team. In every capacity, she brings a drive and insightfulness to her work that truly embodies the values that fuel Cascade’s successes.
Jinsy spent her first days at Cascade as a software developer for Energy Sensei and recalls her first company interactions with fondness.
While thinking back on her experience, she shared, “I will always remember the warm and welcoming atmosphere that I experienced during my interview at Cascade Energy. It was truly refreshing to feel genuinely welcomed and valued, and it made me excited to join the team.”
She now serves as Cascade’s Energy Sensei Director, striving each day to build the best energy efficiency software so that our customers can reach their decarbonization and energy savings goals. Under her guidance, the team brings excellence to all Energy Sensei users, including utilities, other DSM program implementers and energy and sustainability teams throughout the industrial sector. She says that the “ever-evolving nature of the field” is a strong source of excitement and motivation:
“I am extremely proud to be a part of the team at Cascade Energy. Not only do we have the opportunity to make a difference in the world by reducing the usage of precious resources, but we also have a collaborative and transparent work environment that fosters growth and learning.”
A belief in tackling challenges head-on has drawn Jinsy to opportunities in nurturing Cascade’s inclusive culture, including two years of service on the DEIA team.
In 2018 she played a key role in elevating the conversation around diversity by creating and distributing a workplace flyer themed on intentionally supporting minorities. Her commitment to “Seek Shared Success” (her favorite of Cascade’s five values) creates a positive and productive environment for all who work alongside her.
When asked what she sees for Cascade’s future, Jinsy smiled enthusiastically and said, “I am excited to be a part of a company that is driving progress and innovation towards our goal of efficiency-first decarbonization. With a strong mix of subject matter experts and advanced technology at our disposal, the sky truly is the limit for what we can achieve.”
Cascade is thrilled to have Jinsy on the team! Thank you, Jinsy, for the talent and dedication you bring to making Energy Sensei the best energy efficiency software – and making Cascade the best place to work!
