UX/UI Product Designer

Job description

Who are we?

RedGrid is a Melbourne-based startup on a mission to accelerate the clean energy revolution. We’re building tech that shakes up the status quo, making it easy for households to not only save money on their energy bills but also be rewarded for using energy when it’s optimal for the grid and the planet.

What do we do?

Our technology turns everyday household appliances into energy and planet-saving robots. By putting the power in the hands of the customer, we’re helping households and businesses benefit from their energy savings while reducing the fossil fuel energy burden on the planet. RedGrid puts individuals in the driver’s seat with their data, enabling them to be the ones who get paid when they share their usage data, whilst keeping it completely anonymous. We drive the use of electricity at times when renewables are the highest in the grid.

We work with large enterprises, community groups, and institutions like universities to enable decentralized, best-in-class software, for smart energy management and engagement. Our software platform enables our partners to create and benefit from smart energy actions that suit their customers, lowering emissions and saving money. We are the rocket fuel for the clean energy revolution.
