“Our house is on fire” — Greta Thunberg

What’s the most important thing you could be working on right now? Join Bulb to spend eight hours a day saving the planet. We’re the biggest green energy supplier in the UK, and we got here by being technology led, and user focused.

As part of the Content, Design and Research team you will be working with multiple product teams to solve problems, develop new products and services, and make our existing products the best they can be. Between helping our customers understand their energy use, developing new products for electric vehicle owners, helping vulnerable people get the support they need, setting great design standards through the design system, you won’t have a boring day at Bulb.

You’re not going to be working alone. The Content, Design and Research team work closely together. We learn from each other, pair on problems, hang out and eat cake.

We’re very much just-give-it-a-go type of people. When you see an opportunity to make something better, you don’t have to ask anyone’s permission to act on it.

We’re a small team in a fast growing startup, so you will have the opportunity to have a big impact in anything you do.

And we’re the first and only UK energy supplier to achieve B Corp status, because we believe in the power of business to do good in the world.
