Switchcraft powers the future of personal finance. We enable our members and our partners to access the right deals at the right time, with zero hassle. Innovation is at the heart of what we do, and technology gives us the tools to implement our ideas quickly. We take calculated risks, continuously experimenting with tools and data sources to simplify complex processes.
Switchcraft was founded in 2017 to tackle the loyalty penalty in the energy market, and we've signed up 30k+ households to our auto switching service.In 2020, we refocused on providing APIs to partner businesses (think "Twilio for personal finance").We're now profitable and growing very fast via word of mouth, having signed our first enterprise client alongside dozens of small partnerships since the start of the year.
We're not stopping with energy - UK customers are still overpaying by billions a year on mortgages, telecoms and insurance. We see a future where spending hours hunting for deals on comparison sites is a thing of the past. Our software engineers are hard at work to make that happen.
Innovation is at the heart of what we do, and technology gives us the tools to implement our ideas quickly. We take calculated risks, continuously experimenting with tools and data sources to simplify complex processes.In the last year we've built APIs that can give you an accurate energy quote from just your address, used AI for predicting energy usage, built systems to automatically update our pricing data without human intervention.
We stick to the industry best practices, allowing us to develop new features and software quickly and safely. Automated testing and deployment allow us to release every day and give us confidence in the code we've written. Our core business is all about removing hassle for a customer and we strive to apply the same methodologies to internal work.
