About Us

The way we heat/cool our homes, power our vehicles, and cook our meals is antiquated: we take for granted that we use fossil fuels in homes to keep them comfortable and healthy.  There is a better way.

Elephant Energy is a venture-funded business, building a next generation home comfort & electrification platform that helps homeowners get clean, safe, and affordable technologies for their homes and vehicles.  We are growing quickly, supported by the ever increasing demand from customers for more comfortable homes.  This is an exciting opportunity to join at the ground floor and shape how we deploy home comfort and home electrification.

The HVAC Team Lead will be responsible for building our internal capabilities and developing our installer-partners to deliver Heat Pump projects at scale in Colorado.

To succeed at Elephant Energy, you must be energetic, organized, and hard working. You have a passion for building and making things better. You embrace a team ethic and are capable of being self-directed to solve challenging problems to ensure a successful customer journey.
