A bit about us

We are a team comprising of software braniacs, electricity experts, and blockchain geeks, product and project specialists, business development executives, crypto vanguards and more. We have one purpose: the democratization of power for a sustainable future.
With a culturally diverse workplace, we collectively rise up to challenges and celebrate our successes. We promote a healthy work-life balance with additional annual leave, workplace flexibility, home office allowance, along with wellness and mental wellbeing programs. There are also additional staff benefits and retailer discounts on offer.
We believe in developing staff to achieve their professional goals and career aspirations, with training grants and career coaching. We recognize the hard work of our people with quarterly awards and incentives. And whilst we might work hard, we like to celebrate with a good party too - with monthly social club events along with mid and end of year celebrations throughout the year.

We are open to learn from our partners, the market and adapt our solutions to make sure we deliver the best value in any given circumstance.
We are one team
We are there for each other. We are open-minded, active listeners, who speak candidly and maintain honest communication. Teammates at all levels are unafraid to speak their mind, ask for help, learn from one another, develop ideas, or seek some kind of contribution; Especially before they push the button on something.
Built on accountability
We take personal responsibility and are accountable for delivering the company mission and goals in the pursuit of success of the business.
We recognise that to build trust we need to operate inside of these four dimensions: being truthful, holding ourselves and others accountable when things do and don’t go to plan, operating in a way that is consistent with our competence and delivering what is important to our clients.

We strive for excellence with rigorous attention to detail and if necessary persistence. Our rigour allows us to understand our world, our industry and our clients and we don’t feel we need to just resort to cliche or just follow the herd.
