About Us

UtilityAPI is a mission-driven company fighting climate change by helping utilities and energy companies securely manage customer data access. Lack of streamlined access to data is a pain point for many companies in renewable energy, energy efficiency, electric vehicles, building management, etc. Our automation and gateway tools solve this problem, and our customers love us for it. 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 are a US-based remote team, and you can work from anywhere in the United States.
