You give life to what you give energy to.

Access to clean and affordable energy is the first step in development. Nowadays, gone are the times where a product is designed to stand the test of time. But we at Barefoot College strive to reintroduce the classic method; built to last.

At Barefoot College, planned obsolescence is a thing of the past; products are being designed so that customers can restore them on their own. You can join in making servicing and repairing a right to the customer and reduce waste that ends up in the landfill. If this mindset resonates with you, please apply to become a Research and Development Specialist with our team of professionals.
