Company Description

Earth Aid is a leading energy start-up that has developed the first free service that enables individuals to monitor their electric, gas, and water utility usage in one place online, compare their usage to that of their friends and neighbors, receive customized tips to help them save, and earn rewards from hundreds of participating businesses - including multiple national brands - for saving energy. Earth Aid is bringing to market one of the most compelling Internet services to date.

Earth Aid is funded by group of angel investors who have backed, built, and/or scaled some of the most successful businesses today, including The Men’s Warehouse and Rue La La. Our first-generation platform has already garnered several awards and has been featured in publications such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Philadelphia Inquirer, USA Today, TechCrunch, and many others.

We are looking for people who want to work on incredibly complex problems and come up with solutions that will change the world. This is an opportunity to not only work with a dynamic group of people, but also the opportunity to build a platform that can revolutionize the way we look at energy consumption. We want the best and the brightest. People who work hard and play hard. People who want to make an impact. Why be a cog in the wheel when you can help steer the ship?
