Piclo is on a mission to make our energy system smart, flexible and more sustainable.
The energy industry has entered a new era. Supply and demand are decentralising fast; energy companies are starting to embrace renewables and looking for new ways to reduce costs, increase efficiency and build a smarter grid. That’s where Piclo comes in.
Our flagship product, Piclo Flex, is an industry first - it’s the leading online marketplace for flexible energy trading in the UK, and a frontrunner in a sector that’s poised to transform smart energy technology.
The Piclo team is led by founders James Johnston, Andy Kilner and Alice Tyler. Our chairman is Volker Beckers, former CEO of NPower. To date, we’ve raised £1m of innovation grants and £1.4m of angel investment, including from Ian Marchant, former CEO of SSE.
We have a bright, modern office in Old Street/Shoreditch (EC2A) and offer a range of benefits including a generous holiday policy, a 35-hour week and a £500 budget (per annum) for every member of staff to buy custom items for their workstation or invest in professional development.
Every employee is allocated a budget of £500 every year for personal development, health, happiness and comfort at work. We’ll also give you a paid day off work if you choose to use your budget to attend a professional development event.Flexible working
We offer a 35-hour week and we're flexible on core working hours and location - as long as the team is happy and we're achieving our objectives. We've invested in decent video conferencing tech to enable easy dial-in for remote attendance at meetings.Holidays
We offer a generous holiday allowance and encourage you to use it, to give you a chance to properly switch off.Team shindigs
We have regular company events including fortnightly 'show & tell' for the dev team to demo new features over a beer, as well as annual get-togethers in summer and at Christmas.
