Octopus Energy

Octopus Energy is a new electricity and gas supplier in Great Britain and is busy making genuine waves in the industry! With a large portfolio of renewable generation at their disposal, they are supplying homes & businesses across the country. As an agile and innovative start-up, Octopus Energy has launched bold new products, been to the fore of bringing fairness to the industry and have always been able to maintain an excellent standard of customer service.

A talented team of in-house developers working in tandem with operations has allowed them to build a super-efficient digital business that is changing the way that people and businesses consume and buy energy. Customers are put in control through simple digital interactions, long waits to call centres are a thing of the past, and the efficiency savings gained are passed on directly to customers. Fundamentally, they’ve build a modern, tech-led energy supplier that’s fit for 2018.

The leadership team all have 20 years+ experience across a range of sectors and business types, including large blue-chip firms. The team is highly entrepreneurial and brings a deep expertise in building digital businesses in complex sectors.

Ultimately a role with Octopus Energy is a chance to join an exciting start-up business within the energy supply sector, and one that is well placed to take advantage of the rapidly changing energy landscape. They enjoy the best of both worlds: backing from a large, well-capitalised umbrella corporate, Octopus and a dynamic environment and energetic team that characterises start-up ventures.
