The Company You’ll Join 

At Bidgely (which means "electricity" in Hindi), we work to accelerate a clean energy future by emPOWERing energy companies and consumers to make data-driven, energy-related decisions. 

We are a global company, with roots in Silicon Valley, California, and Bangalore, India. Bidgely carries over nineteen energy patents, and brings a passion for AI to utilities serving over thirty million customers worldwide! 

Bidgely is an AI-powered, cloud-based SaaS solution provider that enables electric and gas utilities worldwide to personalize customer experiences, optimize grid and customer operations, and accelerate their journey toward a clean energy future.

The Energy Industry is being disrupted by several new technologies like EVs, Solar, Batteries, Smart Meters, and Smart Home devices. Consumers are becoming self-sufficient with their own energy production and storage, threatening a century-old utility business model. Additionally, the grid was not designed for the peaks created by EVs and the valleys created by solar generation which has created new challenges and opportunities for the utilities (and innovative companies) to manage an evolving grid.
