WHO WE ARE

Switchee wants to make housing better for everyone.

Switchee is a socially conscious technology innovator, focused on finding elegant solutions to housing issues. Switchee develops and supplies connected devices and analytics for landlords and their residents. Our purpose is to empower landlords to create exceptional homes for their residents. We focus on delivering improved comfort, affordability, security and safety.

Switchee developed its first product, a smart thermostat, in 2015 – specifically designed as an enterprise solution for housing. Before product design had even started, the team conducted expert interviews with senior housing professionals from a range of backgrounds, including Local Authorities, Housing Associations, contractors and consultants. The objective was to understand in detail the issues they faced in supporting the health and wellbeing of their residents and the maintenance of large, complex housing portfolios.

Since launch, Switchee has seen rapid adoption by some of the largest landlords in the U.K. with the first commercial rollouts in Peabody and Flagship starting in 2017. Since 2015, over 45 social landlords have ordered more than 5000 thermostats to be installed in housing association and local authority homes across the country.

We may be only 4 years old, but it’s already been quite a ride.

Our first product, the internet connected Switchee thermostat is already in 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 affordable home. It’s going to revolutionise the way residents interact with their properties and landlords manage their homes.

To strengthen our small team of 25 passionate and ambitious people we are looking for outstanding individuals to join in with the next part of our exciting journey!

About Our Mission.

We believe that radical innovation in internet connected technology can ensure that every resident, every day, is living in a home that allows them to succeed. That’s why our products are built not just on great technology, but on an understanding of what people want from the space they live in.

This approach led us to reimagine the most mundane household object, a thermostat, into a product that automagically reduces energy bills, looks great and offers control to those who want it.

We are also revolutionising the way social landlords manage their housing stock with an obsessively tailored SAAS property dashboard and handy alerts on things like when the boiler is going to break.

Our Core Values

We Are Trusted

We are self-motivated and dependable. We are trusted to manage our own schedule and priorities. We can chose to work from home but are sensitive to team dynamics and being present for others. Our team mates trust us to give them direct and honest feedback. Our customers and users trust us to use their data for good.

We Are Nimble.

We build and test things with customers early, we learn quickly and we iterate fast. We accept that it’s normal for things to go wrong but we work hard to correct issues we encounter. We are natural optimists and believe it is always possible to succeed.

We Are Self-Aware

We have a strong desire to learn and continuously improve –we seek out feedback from others and use it to develop ourselves positively. We are open and show and share personal weakness in order to overcome it. We don’t take ourselves too seriously!

We Are Compassionate.

We are focused on achieving our social mission. We have a genuine care for our users and we are quick to spot when team mates need help. In moments of difficulty we remain calm and collected, allowing us to find the best solution: we don’t let our judgement be clouded by personal anger, stress or worry.

We Are Truth Seeking.

We always look through blockers and challenges to get to the fundamental issues and truths of a situation. We are not afraid to challenge authority. We may have strong opinions, but we hold them lightly and listen to others. We pride ourselves in our ability to sensitively and directly speak the truth to each other and our customers. Wherever we are or whomever we are talking to we are clear: the best idea always wins.
