What makes working at Solar Monkey a unique experience?

It's very simple! We believe that work should be fun. A happy and satisfied team is our number one priority. Our culture can be characterised as informal, no-nonsense and pleasantly warm. Our working environment is dynamic, has a clear structure and short communication lines. We are a close-knit team, where everyone works together with mutual respect. Thinking along and showing initiative is strongly encouraged in everybody, because we do it together! We like to have a lot of fun together, not just during our strategy days or events, but also on regular working days. Working in a team is just as natural for us as generating solar energy.
