UX/Visual designer of the solar revolutionaries (Oslo)

How do you like the idea of using your design skills in a startup substantially helping the climate challenge? A startup growing fast and expanding throughout the European market, mentioned in Forbes as well as showing presence in conferences such as the Ignite 2019 energy conference.

That startup is looking for a UX/Visual designer.

We offer the unique opportunities of a scaling company, a skilled and passionate team as well as a job with a deep sense of purpose. You will have room for developing your craft as well as a young brand. You will be part of an autonomous team with continuous and fast development. We value insight and inclusion and believe iterations make perfection.

"We aren't your typical energy utility sector crowd but ecommerce professionals with a vision that solar panels and installation services should be sold online both cost effectively and with as much ease as a television set or a pair of jeans."

- Andreas Thorsheim, CEO

Who we believe you are

You are a strong visual designer of digital interfaces. You have an independent, proactive working style with strong attention to detail.

Design is your craft and you have an urge to explore, develop and learn. You want to understand the business, get to know our customers and involve users to create awesome products. Together with a UX designer, you will be able to drive the visual language and customer experience of our products in the future, with the power of design.

We imagine you have 4 years of experience or more, but we are more interested in your attitude and abilities than number of years. Your story will show us that you are a keen visual designer who want to do your best work and grow together with a team.

What you will do

You will create designs and concepts for the customer experience across the whole of our service; from the sales channel, Otovo app, recurring services to our installer platform.

You will maintain and develop the Otovo brand and design system as well as evangelize design culture in the company.

Special abilities

We are a young company and need people to help where it is needed. While we are looking for allrounders, some special skills are appreciated. Perhaps you have one or two of these?

  • Enjoys communicating design and design decisions

  • Brand management

  • Design for different cultures

  • Writing for web

  • Usability ambassador

  • Experience with e-commerce as well as expert tools

The challenge

“Over the next five years, we fully expect Europe to surpass the United States in terms of solar installations. From a residential solar installation standpoint, we are just at the start of the journey and expect five million homes to go solar in the next five years.”

- Andreas Thorsheim, CEO


We believe being part of growing a company that is putting sustainable energy into every home is the best possible perk. We also offer great pension, personal insurances as well as a conference budget and great room for self development. More reasons to join us.
