Service Engineer

Location: M4 corridor – between Bristol and Swindon

Salary: £35,000 -£45,000

We are a rapidly growing CleanTech business looking to disrupt the heating industry with a new kind of low-carbon boiler technology. Decarbonisation of domestic heating is the single biggest challenge facing the UK’s goal to reach Net Zero. Heating represents over 17% of all carbon emissions in the UK.

Our product is a new type of low carbon heating technology which is becoming a game changer in the drive to decarbonise domestic heating. It’s called a Zero Emission Boiler (ZEB)® and is a direct replacement for a gas or oil boiler. It uses electricity to ‘charge’ ultra-high density thermal storage when energy prices and the carbon intensity of the grid are low. Our IoT technology and cloud-based algorithms automatically optimise the ZEB to minimise cost & carbon. The ZEB operates like a normal boiler for our customers, is easy to install and massively reduces the carbon emissions from heating.

We’ve been recognised as one of the fastest growing and most exciting CleanTech scale-ups in the UK and were recently featured on the Everything Electric Show. There’s more on our website at tepeo.com.

About the role

At tepeo, we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace where everyone feels welcome and valued. We are recruiting for a Service Engineer to join our growing Field Operations team. You will become an expert at servicing, diagnosing faults and carrying out maintenance on our products in customer homes. You may also get involved with training others and there is room to grow into a team management role. 

You will need to be someone who cares deeply about customer care and who is reliable, courteous and has great attention to detail. You will have had experience as a service engineer for other manufacturers of products, preferably domestic heating related products such as gas boilers, heat pumps or solar thermal. Experience of understanding and diagnosing heating system and controls issues would be a huge advantage.

We are an inclusive team and committed to building a team that represents a variety of perspectives and experiences, and we believe that diversity makes us stronger.
