PowerUs is building the ultimate career platform for skilled blue-collar workers. Our platform helps workers find jobs they love and guide them in their professional journey - from apprenticeship until retirement. On the other hand, we help companies hire skilled workers faster so they can complete their projects, especially in the renewable energy sector such as solar and wind energy. Qualified workers are the most important missing link in the energy transition towards renewable energy.

With the help of our platform, users can enter these new and exciting industries and earn up to 50% more. We have just raised €24 million in our Series B financing round! Backed by our investors, such as Eurazeo, General Catalyst, Headline and HV Capital, as well as successful business angels such as Max Viessmann, the founders of Personio and Mario Götze, we can truly commit to our mission of a more sustainable future.
