Ways of working
 

 

London is, and always has been, the tech capital of Europe, which is why we’re proud to call it home. Work either in our Vauxhall office, a stone's throw from the river Thames, or in our east London lab (the biggest of its kind in London). Here we work on ground-breaking technology together with inclusive talent.
 
There’s an open atmosphere in our offices. We often have lunch together, go bouldering or play Nintendo Switch after hours. There are always drinks and snacks because, just as our planet needs clean energy, so do you. Even though we love the energy of working face to face, we also support hybrid working for all.
Working with us should be a win-win
