Who we are

Otovo is the market leader for residential PV installations in Europe.

Founded in Oslo, Norway, we aim to change how people consume energy in their homes through a better, cleaner, cheaper solution: photovoltaic panels.

Over the years, Otovo has developed a marketplace and tools allowing customers to quickly obtain an offer for a solar installation on their roofs. Also, we provide installers with work where they can bid and price their services for PV projects. With our technology, we bring customers and installers together efficiently and effectively to make solar more affordable for everyone.

By joining the Italian team in the early stages of the company, you will have plenty of growth opportunities to learn!

What we offer

  • Sustainable Mission: more solar panels means less global warming. You will have the opportunity to work for a better world.

  • Top Location: our office is located in the central area of Milan.
