Our Next Energy, Inc. (ONE), a Michigan-based energy storage technology company, has been recognized by Forbes as one of the top startup employers in the U.S. Forbes annual America’s Best Startup Employers list recognizes startup companies that are committed to maintaining a good reputation, investing in employee satisfaction, and pursuing steady growth. Out of more than 11,000 companies evaluated, ONE ranked #3.

Forbes 2023 Best Startup Employers

Headquartered in Novi, Michigan, ONE is on a mission to overcoming the barriers to electrification and transforming the energy storage industry with offices in Michigan and California. Product offerings include the lithium-phosphate iron (LFP) batteries, Aries I and Aries II, and the recently announced Aries Grid, utility-scale battery system that can serve as long-duration energy storage.

“What we’re finding is that the employees coming to ONE want to boldly go after that goal with us,” ONE CEO Mujeeb Ijaz said. “They’re really on a trajectory with us trying to change the future.”

To determine the list, Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to evaluate 2,600 companies. To be considered companies must be based in the U.S., employ at least 50 people, and founded between 2013 and 2020. Companies ranked on Forbes’ annual America's Best Startup Employers List  were evaluated by three criteria: employer reputation, employee satisfaction and growth. Out of all the companies evaluated in the U.S., 500 employers earned this distinction.

Forbes points out how all employees, not just engineers, are welcomed and encouraged in laboraties where they can see the product, share ideas and learn.

“People can have influence at any time, at any level,” Ijaz said. “There’s not really a bureaucracy.”
