About Enode

Do you want to join a fast-growing climate tech startup with real impact?

At Enode, our mission is to accelerate the energy transition 🌍️

A fully renewable energy system is dependent on flexible demand that can adapt to the intermittent supply from wind and solar. To create this flexibility, we need to connect to and control the fast-growing demand coming from electric vehicles, heat pumps and other energy hardware.

This is what we’re doing at Enode. Our APIs power the next generation of green energy apps, reaching more than 60 million consumers worldwide.

We are backed by some of the best climate tech investors in the world, including Y Combinator, Lowercarbon Capital and Helge Lund. We already have a global presence with customers in 11 countries across Europe, US and APAC.

Yet, we’re still at the start of our journey, and we want exceptional people to join us!

To succeed at Enode you should be passionate about our mission. You should be excited about electrification and the opportunity to use consumer products to solve grid challenges in the transition to a renewable energy system. You are a problem solver by nature and someone who can adapt to changing circumstances. We look for someone with:

  • Nimble business mind with a focus on developing creative solutions.

  • Have 1+ years of work experience in a fast-paced environment such as consulting, banking or another high-growth startup with a focus on operations, special projects and budget management working alongside other senior folks.

  • Can break complex problems into smaller, actionable solution steps.

  • Are curious by nature and interested in making an impact.

  • Experience in financial modelling and formulating budgets whilst knowing no job is too big or too small to undertake.

  • Have a solid track record of achievement - e.g. you have worked in a top-tier company/startup, have quickly assumed responsibilities or have won competition awards.

  • Have excellent written and verbal communication in English.

What we offer

  • A stimulating, fun and caring work environment with high drive and ambition.

  • Opportunity to join an early-stage climate tech startup with global ambitions.

  • Competitive salary and benefits, including a very attractive employee option program.

  • Infinite learning opportunities and career development.

  • A remote-first setup where you can work anywhere you want in the world - we will assist you with the perfect design if you do not already have it. We also have an office in Oslo if you want to work from here.

  • Regular offsites with the team in various exciting locations (we went to Tuscany 🇮🇹 earlier this year)

  • Stipend for setting up your home office / co-working space

Don’t meet every single requirement? Studies have shown that women and people of colour are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification. We are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.

About Enode

Enode is Plaid for energy. We build APIs that power green energy apps, helping consumers use more renewable energy and stabilize the grid.

Some of the largest and fastest-growing energy companies in the world, like OVO and David Energy, use our API to let consumers connect their EV and other energy hardware (DERs) to their apps and services. This enables valuable use cases like smart EV charging, where you automatically charge your Tesla when the price is low or when your solar roof is producing excess energy. Key to solving the largest problem we are facing right now, climate change.
