Careers at Bulb

Bulb was founded in 2015 by Hayden Wood and Amit Gudka, and in just four years has become the UK's fastest growing private company. Hayden and Amit were frustrated with the unfair treatment of customers in Britain’s energy market and with how much businesses were charging for renewable energy. They saw an opportunity to make energy simpler, cheaper and greener for everyone - and made it their mission to do so. Bulb was the first energy supplier in the UK to become an accredited B Corp, which means it meets the highest standards of social and environmental performance, whilst providing a great place to work. Bulb now provides 100% renewable electricity and carbon neutral gas to 1.7 million homes across the UK, France, Spain and Texas.

There are currently lots of open roles to join the team in a variety of departments too for Escapees looking to work for a scaling organisation making a real impact in the energy sector.
