Where in the world of OVO will I be working?
CORGI HomePlan and CORGI HomeHeat are home assistance businesses which evolved out of the old gas safety regulator, CORGI. Today they maintain their focus on safety and reliability, providing Home Emergency Insurance, Home Heating and installation services to hundreds of thousands of Customers throughout the UK.
As part of the OVO Group, we are investing in a smarter, better future for our Customers. Using CORGI’s expert network of electricians, plumbers, and gas engineers we are installing smart home technologies which provide real benefit to our Customers, and strategic opportunities for OVO & CORGI to deliver better products and services long into the future.
From smart heating solutions, to energy trading platforms; virtual power plants, to remote diagnostics - we have big ambitions.
That sounds great! What will I be doing?
We’re looking for a hands on engineering manager to take technical ownership of our CORGI HomeHeat product. OVO is revolutionising the way Customers use energy in their homes. CORGI HomeHeat sells home heating solutions to Customers who currently have inefficient or broken heating.
By installing connected heating systems (from boilers, to storage heaters) we are able to work with our Customers to optimise their heating efficiency in the background, whilst giving them smart controls and remote diagnostic capability and support.
