Account Director

At Diode, we’re on a mission to simplify the journey to net zero for businesses and consumers. We’re accelerating the change by building software solutions to make the journey net-zero technologies, such as electric vehicles, charge points, solar PV, batteries and heat pumps, more intuitive, insightful and data-driven.

Our route to market is through strategic partnerships – such as vehicle providers, large banking groups, and global energy companies. We support them by integrating our technology into their customer journeys to drive engagement, generate leads and increase conversion.

We’re on a well-funded battery-powered rocket ship with massive, disruptive growth plans, backed by VCs, the UK government via Innovate UK, and the Department for Transport.

What we offer

  • 25 days holiday per year, plus bank holidays and your birthday off.
  • Up to 3 days a year of paid volunteering leave – time to learn new skills or give back to the community.
  • Monthly socials at or around our Finsbury Park office.
  • North London office, with hybrid working.
  • Salary up to £55k, plus bonus, depending on experience.

  • Commercially innovative, forthcoming and proactive to give you the ability to really understand and help partners overcome challenges and maximise sales.
