Culture and Team

Quick guide:

Culture is at the core of the OhmConnect team.

It’s not all business around these parts! Our team enjoys fully remote work days as well as monthly and quarterly offsites, where we focus on where we're going as a business and decompress together. We've strapped on our walking shoes for team hikes, explored the Bay Area on segways, and created a culture where it's rare to go more than a few hours without sharing a good meme on Slack.

The values that shape our culture

Be Brave
We lean into the toughest challenges to create the biggest impact.
Put Families First
It is about your life, and your family.
Get Stuff Done
We move fast, and we iterate often.
Lead with Purpose
We are deliberate, thoughtful, and focused on what matters most.

OhmConnect's Equity, Access, and Outreach Strategy

At OhmConnect, we acknowledge the systemic inequity faced by low-income families and people of color and recognize that these communities are often most impacted by climate change, despite having done the least to create it. Furthermore, these communities are underrepresented in the energy and consumer technology sectors in which OhmConnect operates.

In service of our mission to improve the lives of people and the health of the planet, we created OhmConnect’s Equity, Access, and Outreach (EA&O) Committee to research, design, and enact initiatives to help combat systemic inequity, both in our workforce and in the communities we serve.

How OhmConnect got started

OhmConnect first began in 2014 when three people in different stages of life - and with wildly different work experience - came together to focus on what they all considered (and still consider) to be the paramount challenge to the human race: long-term, sustainable energy.

With backgrounds in technology, energy markets and consumer marketing respectively, Cadir Lee, Matt Duesterberg and Curtis Tongue set up shop in a basement office in San Francisco and since then have grown a team of smart, creative, and passionate folks who are the fabric of the OhmConnect culture.
