Company description

Imagine a world where there is less reliance on non-renewable power, where you source your electricity from your neighbors rather than from power stations hundreds of miles away and software makes the best possible use of the solar, wind and battery storage available. This is Geli's vision - the "Internet of Energy” (IoEn).

Geli provides software and business solutions to design, connect, and operate energy storage systems ranging in size from residential to utility-scale, as well as grid-tied, microgrid, and off-grid systems.

We're a growing Series-A funded company with 25 employees located in San Francisco's SOMA district looking for enthusiastic engineers that are not only fluent in technology, but also share our vision of a world running on 100% renewable energy.

We value the insights that a diverse team can bring. We encourage applications from members of groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in tech. Geli is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin.
