About Us

UtilityAPI’s automated data service helps shorten sales cycles, lower customer acquisition costs, and provides the infrastructure needed to build the energy economy of the future. Everyone in the Clean Energy ecosystem needs a fast, easy, safe way to share energy data. Lack of access to data chokes innovation at clean energy companies. UtilityAPI’s goal is to end that chokehold. Our customers love us.

We have a diverse leadership team, and we value the insights that a diverse team can bring. We encourage applications from members of groups that have been traditionally underrepresented and underestimated in tech, including women, people of color, and people with disabilities.

We encourage applications from any interested candidate, whether you meet all listed requirements. UtilityAPI is committed to being a workplace that values nontraditional work histories.
