Operations Internship

full-time Switchee London

About Switchee

We may be only five years old, but it’s already been quite a ride!

Our first product, the internet-connected Switchee thermostat is already in over 40 of the biggest housing providers in the UK. We’re growing 100% year on year and are backed by some of the best-known investors in technology and social impact. Our next project is to build the ultimate connected hub for the social home. It’s going to revolutionise the way residents interact with their properties and landlords manage their homes.

One in five households in the UK live in social housing, a sector with the right values at its

core but that has historically struggled to deploy innovations in the home. Many residents

still can’t afford to heat their homes and live in cold, mouldy properties they can’t be proud

of. At Switchee, we believe that everyone deserves to live in a decent home and that the

environments we inhabit have a massive influence on our ability to enjoy life and prosper.
