To sum it up...

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

Role overview

We are looking for a Lead Software Engineer in London to own, architect, build and scale parts of a new microsevices platform.

We are 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 are building 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.

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.

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.
