About Helio Home

Helio is on a mission to electrify every home in America. Here at Helio, we believe people want to do their part to fight climate change. Nevertheless, they often don’t realize that 42% of emissions come from decisions they make at the kitchen table. Helio gives homeowners the power to make a dramatic impact on their carbon footprint by making it simple to remove fossil fuels from their homes, and in the process, fully electrify their lives.

The Role

We are an early-stage, venture-backed startup with tremendous early traction. We are building an electrification technology platform that will help guide 100 million homes in the US towards electrification. We are looking for a collaborative software engineer who believes the time is now to make a difference. This is an opportunity to join at the ground floor and shape how we sell electrification.
