At Switchee, we believe that everyone deserves to live in a decent home and that the environments we inhabit have a massive influence on our ability to enjoy life and prosper.
One in five households in the UK live in social housing, a sector with the right values at its core but that has historically struggled to deploy innovations in the home. Many residents still can’t afford to heat their homes and live in cold, mouldy properties they can’t be proud of.
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 automatically 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 goal is to perfect the ultimate connected hub for the social home. It’s going to revolutionise the way residents interact with their homes and landlords manage their properties.
We may be only 7 years old, but it’s already been quite a ride. Our first product, the connected Switchee thermostat is already in over 100 of the UK’s biggest housing providers.
We’re growing 100% year on year and are backed by some of the best-known investors in technology and social impact. We are a small team of passionate and ambitious people driven by a collective desire to make a positive impact in the housing sector, both for residents and landlords.
We are looking for a motivated individual to be an essential part of our team, supporting the beating “heart” of the business and our new customers.
To expand our team, we are looking for an IT Systems Administrator to help us with our growing IT needs and to provide excellent IT services to our employees.
As an IT Systems Administrator for a remote-first business, you will be reporting to the Data Lead and will be responsible for our IT infrastructure, which includes employee laptops, productivity tools (mostly cloud-based, such as Google Workspace), networks and VPN, instant messaging and video conferencing. In this role, you will have the opportunity to shape the IT Services in a scale-up environment, play an important part in defining and executing our data security policies and support distributed teams by providing reliable and state-of-the-art IT services.
There is a lot of growth potential with this role as you will be the first hire in this area, building out processes we have not run before. As Switchee grows, the role will grow and evolve with it and will provide ongoing career growth opportunities.
These are ideal but not required – we will happily consider applicants who we believe can successfully grow into the role, even if they are not 100% qualified.
P.S Switchee is a Disability Confident Employer and we aim to provide reasonable adjustments for our new hires to ensure they are successful and supported in their roles.
Switchee improves the quality of life for people who live in rented housing. Its mission is to fight fuel poverty and provide social housing providers with remote data insights that reduce maintenance costs and improve resident well-being.
