Come and help us shape the future of energy 🙌

Who we are

With a vision of a world powered by cheap, clean and abundant energy - James, Andy and Alice founded Piclo (previously known as Open Utility) in 2013.

We are now a quickly growing team of over 40 software developers, product managers, designers and more.

We’d love for you to join us! To see our latest job vacancies, please visit our jobs board.

At Piclo, we believe we are not powerless against climate change and are focused on enabling the transition to make our energy systems smart, flexible and sustainable. Piclo Flex is the leading independent marketplace that enables technologies, such as electric vehicles, to provide flexibility to electricity grids.

We know “flexibility” can be quite complex to understand at first, take a look at this video which explains what are flexibility services?

Inclusivity

Our team welcomes everyone to work together on our mission. We don’t believe that anyone should be discriminated against for any reason, be that age, nationality, gender, race, sexual preferences, religious beliefs, political leanings or disabilities. We welcome diversity among our colleagues and see it as important that everyone is supported and comfortable working with us.

Working at Piclo has been one of the best working experiences I’ve had over the last 10 years in the energy sector... Piclo’s culture and management team have also given me the opportunity to fulfil a life goal of completing my MBA.

Piclo is that rare, purpose-driven startup that not only manages to make a big impact in its sector, but does so by focusing intensely on the wellbeing and fulfilment of its staff.
