Today, LevelTen Energy was named one of Seattle’s “50 Best Places to Work” by Built In for the category of “small companies.” LevelTen was chosen based on criteria including its compensation, benefits, and flexible work opportunities. The annual awards program honors companies in the eight largest tech markets across the U.S., as well as remote-first employers.
“We’re thrilled that LevelTen was named one of Seattle’s best places to work, particularly because we are growing quickly and actively looking for more talented people to join us,” said Vicky Eriksson, VP of People & Culture at LevelTen Energy. “People are drawn to our mission of accelerating the clean energy transition. It’s a powerful feeling to come into work and know that what you’re doing will help decarbonize the energy grid and slow down climate change, the most pressing issue of our time.”
That was the case for Deepti Hatch, a senior product manager at LevelTen. “Having previously worked in the social media industry for a long time, I got to work with a lot of Fortune 500 companies, but I felt the work I was doing wasn’t making a big impact. I wanted to work in the climate tech sector so I could help shape a product that would make a difference.”
“But mission alone isn’t enough to retain talent. We know how important it is to empower our people with avenues to grow their careers, time off to recharge with our unlimited PTO policy, and reward strong performance with bonuses,” said Eriksson.
For employees like Christian Tinoco, an origination associate who joined the company in 2019, the opportunity to learn and grow was key. “I enjoy the fact that no day is the same, and that there are always ways to diversify my skill set. There are many opportunities at LevelTen to grow your career in the direction that suits you, and you’re supported and encouraged to step outside of your comfort zone and maximize your potential.”
Last year, LevelTen closed a $35 million Series C funding round, whose participants included NGP ETP, Google, and many others. The funding is being used to hire a diverse array of talent – from transaction experts to software developers to data specialists – that will play crucial roles in scaling and expanding LevelTen’s renewable energy transaction platform. Most of LevelTen’s employees are based in Seattle, but some are also located in a handful of major metros, including Denver, San Francisco, and Austin, and LevelTen’s European office in Madrid, Spain.
“Currently we have about 70 employees but with our current hiring pace, it’s possible that by the end of this year we won’t qualify as a ‘small’ company anymore,” said Eriksson. “It’s an exciting time to join LevelTen – whether you have decades of renewable energy experience or are looking to break into the field.”
