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!

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.

Why you should join 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.
