“Over the past ten years, Kiwigrid has grown from five passionate founders to over 140 inspiring team members. Every day we are driving the decentralized energy transition and I’m immensely proud to be heading a company that truly lives its values. We challenge the status quo and support each team member to achieve individual and group success.”
Dr. Frank Schlichting (Chief Executive Officer)
“Implementing the decentralized energy transition is extremely exciting from a technological perspective. I would even describe it as the “biggest software project of our time”. At Kiwigrid, we are breaking new, unprecedented ground by building a platform to monitor, control and manage an enormous amount of decentralized renewable energy. Based on standard technology and in collaboration with our cloud partner Google, we aim to significantly increase the use of locally generated renewable energy. This requires a large transactional power plant characterized by high scalability, a very high level of security and robust distributed intelligence.”
Dr.-Ing. Carsten Bether (Chief Plattform Officer)
"Creating added value for our customers is the basis for our economic success and directly links to our contribution to the success of the decentralized energy transition.

We want to be a company that makes a positive and sustainable impact both externally and internally, for our employees, customers and investors, the economy and the environment."

“I enjoy convincing our customers of our green, digital products and working with passionate colleagues who don't miss a single climate strike and are deeply committed to the energy transition. It's the little things, like eating together at the „Falafel-Imbiss“, that I value so much (and currently miss the most).”
Kristin Schumann (Product Marketing Manager)
“A cutting-edge tech stack, working on one of the most important topics of our time, motivated colleagues and many opportunities for further development - these are just four of many more reasons for me to go to work every morning motivated and happy. Building a stable and highly scalable platform presents me with new and exciting challenges every day. For me, the most valuable idea is that by making the platform available, our customers can realize significantly more product ideas for the energy transition on it than we could ever develop ourselves as Kiwigrid.”
Manuel Hoffmann (System Architect)

Furthermore, my job gives me space to grow professionally and stay motivated to learn and overcome challenges!"
