Leading climatetech company electrifying millions of homes

Location: Denver Metro Area 

About Us

For roughly 500,000 years, humans have been burning stuff to heat our homes, burning stuff to light our homes, and burning stuff to power our machines. It’s 2024, people. Let’s change that.

Right now, homes account for roughly 20% of the world’s carbon emissions. Here at Elephant Energy, we know that there is a better way, so we are building a one-stop shop that makes it easy to upgrade to a climate-friendly home. We enable homeowners to confidently make the switch to modern, electric technologies and get their homes off of fossil fuels – all at once, or over time.

Nice to Have, Though Not Required

  • Experience working on a distributed team, familiarity with remote communication tools
  • Experience in the home services or construction industry is highly desirable given the blended nature of our workforce
