The way we heat/cool our homes, power our vehicles, and cook our meals is antiquated: we take for granted that we use fossil fuels in homes to keep them comfortable and healthy. There is a better way.
Elephant Energy is building a home comfort & electrification platform that helps homeowners upgrade their homes with heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, induction, energy efficiency, and EV charging. We are growing quickly, supported by the ever increasing demand from customers for more comfortable homes.
We’re building a high energy, creative, and ambitious sales team. This is an exciting opportunity to join at the ground floor and shape how we sell and deploy home comfort and home electrification.

You have a passion for creating exceptional experiences through your ability to engage with each individual customer and to help cultivate a team around you that espouses these values. As a primary representative of the company, you are professional and knowledgeable with strong verbal and written communication skills. You embrace a team ethic and are capable of being self-directed to solve challenging problems to ensure a successful customer journey.
