Europe's best-funded green tech start-up
We're one of the few UK 'double unicorns', building cutting-edge technology to drive the global green energy revolution.
Recently we were honoured to receive $600 million investment from Al Gore’s own sustainable investment fund, Generation – a massive vote of confidence from one of the world's foremost climate action leaders.
Transforming the energy system using tech

The best-loved energy supplier in the UK
We've gone from a tiny startup supplier to a global leader in just 5 years, and through that relentless growth we still put customers at the heart of everything we do. That's how we've got five starts on TrustPilot based on over 70,000 customer reviews and why consumer champions Which? have named us a Recommended Provider for the last four years in a row.
We're fighting to make energy fairer, more affordable, and more accessible for all. Jump to customer operations roles.
What it's like to work at Octopus
We work with freedom and responsibility. You'll get a lot of trust to run with ideas and take ownership of what you do.
Our founder Greg has a theory that building a great team should be like building a dry-stone wall: rather than forcing people into 'cuboids' and sticking them together in neat little rows, we take authentic humans, and find ways for them to fit together naturally to form a truly solid team full of unique perspectives and strengths.
You'll be treated like an adult. So instead of managers pushing KPIs, you'll get the space and opportunity to deliver brilliance. What you do at Octopus morphs and changes, so you can make the biggest impact doing what you're really good at.
This way of working isn't for everyone. You have to drive your own work forward; be agile, flexible, and personally accountable for everything you do, from idea to conception.
