But we’re just getting started.

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 on 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.

  • You’ll be thinking about how you can implement some of those great ideas from the tribe.
