Careers at Switchee

Switchee is a socially conscious technology innovator, focused on finding elegant solutions to housing issues. Switchee develops and supplies connected devices and analytics for landlords and their residents. Our purpose is to empower landlords to create exceptional homes for their residents. We focus on delivering improved comfort, affordability, security and safety.

Switchee developed its first product, a smart thermostat, in 2015 – specifically designed as an enterprise solution for housing. Before product design had even started, the team conducted expert interviews with senior housing professionals from a range backgrounds, including Local Authorities, Housing Associations, contractors and consultants. The objective was to understand in detail the issues they faced in supporting the health and wellbeing of their residents and the maintenance of large, complex housing portfolios.

Since launch, Switchee has seen rapid adoption by some of the largest landlords in the U.K. with the first commercial rollouts in Peabody and Flagship starting in 2017. Since 2015, over 45 social landlords have ordered more than 5000 thermostats to be installed in housing association and local authority homes across the country.
