OVO Energy

We are OVO Energy. We launched in 2009 to make energy cheaper, greener and simpler. Since then they’ve welcomed over a million members, planted over a million trees and set our sights on helping save the planet, including offering 100% renewable energy as standard.

We are very Agile at OVO. We put people first and are always experimenting to continuously improve how we deliver value to our customers. We recently ran a hackathon and created three brilliant innovative solutions to start supporting our customers even more through this energy crisis. I hope you’ll hear more about those very soon. 

In addition to remote working we have vibrant offices in London, Bristol and (soon) Glasgow. Our aim is to build a diverse and inclusive movement: teams of brilliant people, with unique talents, skills, passions, and experiences. At the core are our three values; Find a better way, Do What’s Right and Build Something Great.

OVO are tackling some of the world’s most pressing problems by creating better energy systems for our planet and for everyone on it. It’s a big task - so they need the very best people to help them.  Find out more here.
