To sum it up...

Lead the development at Kaluza. A highly scalable, intelligent technology platform.

Role overview

Kaluza (An OVO company), are shaping the future: a distributed, consumer-centric energy system providing clean, affordable energy for everyone — and a key element in delivering this promise is our intelligent technology platform based on real-time energy availability.

OVO is the UK’s leading independent energy technology company and supplier - we serve nearly one million customers with intelligent energy services. 🔌

Today OVO is no longer simply an energy retail business: it is a group of innovative, dynamic companies, all striving to harness technological advances with great customer propositions to create more abundant clean energy for everyone. 🍃👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

We’re creating tools to help customers unlock the full benefits of renewable energy, power their connected hardware, and interact with devices which don’t have displays of their own. This stuff is how we bring electric vehicles and connected homes to market.

We’re building the future of our business and we’ve a lot to do. We need to develop, test, and release software that scales, quickly and reliably. Over the last few years, we’ve built a highly skilled team of software engineers that is making a real impact to our business, and shaking up 🤝 our industry.

We care about code quality, test automation and continuous delivery. Our developers drive our technology choices and own the software they create from their laptop all the way through to production. We’re building a better energy company, and we’re doing it one Git commit at a time.

Right, I’m convinced… but where in the world of OVO will I be working?

Kaluza is the centrepiece of OVO’s ambition in becoming the world leader in distributed energy technology. It is an intelligent control layer running on top of the already existing energy infrastructure, giving both the market players as well the end consumers a fast forward ticket to the distributed green energy future. 🔌

Kaluza will be the nervous system of OVO’s IoT landscape sitting between grid operators and end customers, connecting energy suppliers, energy IoT and Virtual Power Plants. 🏭

That sounds great! What will I be doing?

  • Own, architect, build and scale parts of our microservice platform.
  • Drive both product and technical improvements.
  • Communicate your ideas, engage with different teams and encourage debate and collaboration.
  • Mentor and develop the skills of your team members.
  • Share your innovative technical ideas with the wider team internally, and ideally building a public profile through our tech blog.

That sounds super exciting, but… Do I have what it takes?

  • Experience designing and building scalable, distributed applications.
  • Expert understanding of multiple languages such as Scala, Go, Python or Node.
  • Experience with asynchronous event driven programming using distributed commit logs.
  • A security conscious approach to development, especially in regards to IoT integrations.
  • Experience working in a full continuous delivery environment.
  • Experience driving automation across build, test and release processes.
  • An exceptional people person and communicator, able to share your ideas effectively.
  • A leader in your field of expertise, perhaps speaking at events or running meet-ups.
  • Recognised widely as a go to person on one or more technical areas.
  • A keen mentor of others, taking pride in helping other engineers improve their technical skills.
  • Experience leading communities of practises or teams.
  • You consistently exhibit our technology behaviours at a high level.

Location

London is the capital of the United Kingdom, situated in the South East of the island. The world's largest financial centre, London is also often referred to the culture capital of the world. The city is well-known for its heritage, including Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Kew Gardens, Westminster Abbey, and the historic settlement of Greenwich. London Underground is the oldest urban railway network in the world.

Technology workers in London earn 60pc more than the city average, with the figure even higher for foreign born workers, who earned 28pc more than their British counterparts in tech jobs. London can be considered as a center for professional relocation. Furthermore, there are over 100 of Europe's 500 largest companies' headquarters in London.

The city is famous for unpredictable weather. For instance, it could be cold, warm and rainy in one day and it’s often the topic of conversation across the city.

Did you know...

  • 2.5M people, one third of Londoners, are foreign born
  • 40% of Greater London is green space
  • 250+

One of the first systems of its kind, Kaluza is a highly scalable, intelligent technology platform that captures the value of flexibility present in all energy resources.

Kaluza remotely connects distributed flexible electrical devices (electric vehicles, home batteries, storage heaters) enabling the UK grid to symbiotically react to changes in demand and supply.

Kaluza recognises system stress from national to micro-regional levels and responds to changing conditions within seconds. From managing demand at peak times to providing highly responsive grid balancing services for multiple devices and appliances.

Apart of OVO Energy, we're building a different type of energy company. One where we obsess about our customer experience and where technology is at the heart of everything we do.

OVO believes in fuelling human progress with clean and abundant energy for all 🌳. We were set up to challenge the status quo: to be the good ones, always find a way, and build something great.

We embrace simplicity, transparency, and treating people and our planet fairly. And we understand that attracting and keeping the best talent is key to our bright future, so our people will always share in our success 👫. Oh, and our benefits are nice too!

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
