Working at Otovo
Otovo simplifies the transition from energy-draining, energy-stupid individual homes to solar powered, smarter and interacting communities. We build software that helps people decide on going solar and we run a network of installers that make it happen in the real world. In addition we connect the solar powered homes with the grid and operate a power company that sells clean and local power. Otovo has offices in Stockholm and Oslo. We will add capabilities, countries and products as we move forward.
We were founded in 2016. Since then we have launched products, attracted customers and had a pretty steep revenue curve. We have raised roughly €10m to date. We are financially solid and serious about making sure we can achieve what we set out to do. Otovo will of course be taking risks, which also means there is ample opportunity to be part of the fun, where you influence outcomes substantially. It’s cool to get in early.
We value curiosity and experimentation. We make decisions fast and we act early, learn quickly and keep moving. Our work environment is open minded, inclusive and transparent. People here believe in our mission to put clean and local energy in every home and work hard to make that a reality. It’s really cool if you too care about improving the outlook for our planet and the quality of our cities.
We allow for flexibility in work hours and workstyle. Our people are intent on creating results, so we love when people do stuff rather than talk about it or plan forever: If you’re a maker you’ll enjoy working here. We celebrate completing things, not starting them.
Otovistas are positive and love social gatherings, including parties, boat rides on the Oslo fjord and skiing in Hemsedal. We’ve gathered a bunch of really smart people with cool and diverse skills and interest. We’ve got all sorts of tasks: Otovo employs designers, developers, project managers, technical experts and sales consultants. Among us you’ll find boxers, surfers, sailors, dancers, readers, open source volunteers, army veterans and runners. Some speak Chinese, others Icelandic, French or Farsi - and by the time this gets updated next probably more... You’ll find moms and dads with afternoons filled up with babies, ballet, band practice and handball trainings. We understand you have a life to live outside of work. We’re family friendly. We will be prioritizing diversity in our hiring.
We offer really challenging work. You can probably fetch your maximal paycheck somewhere else, but we pay honest salaries and bonuses. All full time employees are enrolled in our stock option programme, as well as our good pension and insurance scheme. We follow high Scandinavian social and medical standards in our employee handbook. You’ll also find a bunch of other nice perks there. Otovo helps people who want to join us from outside Scandinavia with relocation expenses.
