Listing Description

What we do. Electric Car Leasing

Why we do it. Greener. Fairer. Future.

Electric cars are coming faster than most people can imagine.

The electric revolution has arrived - and from 2030 you will no longer be able to buy a new petrol or diesel car in the UK. Just like the iPhone revolutionised phones, Tesla kick-started the car revolution - and now every other manufacturer is racing to catch up - with >30 now available and more being launched every day. PLUS - the UK has almost twice as many places you can charge up your car publicly than you can fill up with petrol, and the government is investing a further £1.3bn into the network. Not to mention, many of us will just charge up at home overnight - like a mobile phone. So convenient.

Octopus Electric Vehicles launched in 2018 to make it easy to make the switch to cleaner, greener driving. Our mission is to drive sustainable change and provide our customers with fair pricing and a fantastic experience. 

This is the chance to join one of the UK’s most exciting start-ups – making it easy for individuals and businesses to go electric - getting set up with their new car or van, and charging.

We’re expanding our InfoSec and Privacy team at Octopus Electric Vehicles! 

We’re looking for an Information Security and Privacy Analyst to join our growing team and support our fast-paced security landscape. 

You’ll be supporting our business and ensuring that we remain fully-operational and compliant with infosec legislation and processes while working with various teams to expand our capabilities and develop creative solutions to business challenges and opportunities to improve our service to both new and existing customers.

Our group includes Octopus Energy, Kraken Technology, Octopus Renewables, and Octopus Energy Services. Together, we recently secured investment from Origin, Australia’s largest Energy Company, and Tokyo Gas in Japan (valuing us most recently at >$2bn) to help continue our mission. At Octopus, we're looking for genuinely decent people who are honest and empathetic.
