Over 1 billion people lack access to reliable power, and yet 700 million have access to a mobile phone. For many, getting their phone charged and connecting to the network is a daily challenge. Without the ability to connect, these phone users will struggle to function in the modern economy.
BuffaloGrid provides mobile power and internet connectivity to the off-grid world. To our customers in rural India, BuffaloGrid is a red box that sits in a village or shop, and provides a power for their lights and mobile phones. Using innovative hardware, renewable energy, and a cashless payment system, we're helping people living in off-grid communities to get connected and stay connected.
Our Culture & How We Hire
Our CEO, COO and CTO will be directly involved in the hiring process. We will typically hold two interviews followed by a chemistry session (see: coffee/beer) with the rest of the UK team.
We look for people with deep specialism, but a broad understanding of systems.
We are a mission-driven company, so we look for candidates who care about geo-politics, development and macro human trends. We are also very clearly a business, not a charity. We believe in the power of profit-driven ventures to deliver sustainable change.
