Ecotricity – the green energy pioneer – has announced the opening of a new office in Bristol, its first in the city. The Ecotricity Tech Hub will open early in the New Year, and the firm is finalising discussions with a provider of city-centre office space to tech-based start-ups and digital teams from leading businesses.
Ecotricity is seeking top digital talent from the city to help transform the experience of its customers, as well as working on a new generation of products to help people manage their carbon footprint and connected homes.
Ecotricity has begun hiring for the office, beginning with a Digital Development Lead and a team of Full Stack Digital Developers. It hopes to have up to 15 people in the city by the end of 2018. Ecotricity’s Technology & Transformation Director, Dan Goodall will oversee the new Bristol location.
Founded in 1995 by Dale Vince with just one windmill, Ecotricity now supplies over 200,000 customers with green electricity and gas. Ecotricity also created and operates the Electric Highway – the country’s first national charging network for electric vehicles – and also runs Forest Green Rovers, recently described by FIFA as the “world’s greenest football club.”
Dan Goodall, Technology & Transformation Director, Ecotricity, said:
“We have great talent in our technology team in Stroud, but we’re creating a presence that will tap into the wider Bristol and West digital and tech ecosystem in the city and surrounding area. We’re keen to drive the green agenda in the future of the connected home and the connected city, and Bristol is at the forefront of our thinking.”
Dale Vince, Founder of Ecotricity, added:
“It’s good for us to have a presence in different parts of the country. Bristol is a great place to be – it’s full of talented people and like-minded companies we can collaborate with. We’re very pleased to be moving in.”
