Engineering Manager, Payments team

As one of Europe's fastest-growing green tech start-ups, we're determined to make our dream of bringing local and clean energy to every home a reality.

Otovo is a European marketplace that connects consumers wanting to add batteries or solar panels to their homes with installer companies looking to fill their order book with projects. Otovo's mission is to put solar panels and batteries in every European home, and by using software and technology we are able to make solar energy easy, cheap and available everywhere.

Founded in 2016, Otovo has rapidly scaled its platform beyond the Nordics, and it is currently operating in 13 countries: Norway, Sweden, France, Spain, Poland, Italy, Germany, Austria, Portugal, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Netherlands and Belgium.
