Functional Programming & Green Energy 🌱

Role overview

This role can be based from any of our offices or remote.

We’re making zero carbon happen

We’re OVO Group, a big family of companies united by a single vision: to get to zero carbon, fast.


We call this Plan Zero – and it shows how we’ll be fighting the climate crisis and transforming the way people use energy over the next decade. To do this, we need the sharpest minds. Are you up for the challenge?

So much has changed since we launched in 2009. Our goal remains the same though: make energy cheaper, greener, and simpler. Just as it was on day one.


Everyone belongs at OVO

Our aim is to build a diverse and inclusive movement: teams of brilliant people, with unique talents, skills, passions, and experiences. 

We encourage everyone to join us, whatever your gender identity, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, life experience, or background. So please come as you are – we can’t wait to meet you.


Where in the world of OVO will I be working?

We're growing! We currently have vacancies for multiple Scala Engineers at various levels to join our team

Across all our brands we have around 350 Software Engineers all with varying backgrounds and levels of experience. One key thing that all of our engineers have in common is a desire to develop brilliant, industry redefining products as well as their own skills.


You’re the right person for us if: 

  • You’re an engineer with a growth mindset who seeks to broaden your soft and technology skills
  • Passionate about developing products that will positively impact our mission to deliver PlanZero
  • You love working in teams collaborating and knowledge sharing to build features that impact customers
  • You’re Motivated by owning products, from inception to continuous improvement
  • You value test automation as a key part of your role as a software engineer
  • Love building scalable, resilient solutions


Is this the job for me?

We hire people primarily based on software engineering talent and not on specific skill sets alone. If you are Interested in us? We're interested in you!

Ideally you will have skills in some or all of the following:

  • A functional programming language, preferably Scala
  • Typelevel Scala (e.g.s Cats, Cats-Effect, http4s, FS2)
  • Kafka and/or distributed asynchronous architecture
  • Creating and integrating with HTTP APIs (e.g. RESTful, GraphQL)
  • Experience or interest in Infrastructure and Infrastructure as Code
  • Experience or interest in maintaining CICD
  • Exposure to cloud native computing


Brilliant benefits for a world-changing team

Our people are at the heart of Plan Zero. That’s why we offer plenty of green benefits and progressive policies to make you feel at home.

For starters, you’ll get 34 days of holiday (including bank holidays).

Then there’s Flex Pay. It’s an extra 9% of your salary on top of your core pay to use as you like. You can take it as cash, add to your pension, or choose to spend it on a huge range of flex benefits.

Here’s a taster of what’s on offer:

For your health

With benefits like a healthcare cash plan or private medical insurance depending on your career level, critical illness cover, life assurance, health assessments, and more

For your wellbeing

With gym membership, gadget, travel and cyber insurance, workplace ISA, will writing services, DNA testing, dental insurance, and more

For your lifestyle

With extra holiday buying, discount dining, culture cards, tech loans, and supporting your favourite charities with give-as-you-earn donations

For your commute

Nab a great deal on ultra-low emission car leasing, plus our cycle to work scheme and public transport season ticket loans

Want to hear about our full range of flexible benefits and progressive people policies? Our People Team can tell you everything you need to know.

Oh, and one last thing...

We’d be thrilled if you tick off all our boxes yet we also believe it’s just as important we tick off all of yours. And if you think you have most of what we’re looking for but not every single thing, go ahead and hit apply. We’d still love to hear from you!

We are the leading innovator in energy technology Since day one, we've used technology to solve some of the biggest problems in energy, revolutionising a broken industry for the benefit of customers. And we're not stopping there. Now, we're reimagining the entire energy system. We built the first mobile payment solution for customers, and now we're introducing smart energy products into people's homes and developing an intelligent control platform for the grid; creating support for more renewable energy using batteries and electric vehicles. We trust our development teams to choose their tech stacks You’ll commonly encounter Scala, TypeScript, Clojure, Node, Java, Docker, Kubernetes, Kafka, React, Cypress, Swift and React Native. We run our services in GCP, AWS and Azure. We look for engineers with interest in the above, but your experience doesn’t have to match our stack. We’re interested in engineers with deep experience in similar technologies and also polyglots who are comfortable working across the stack. Link: OVO Tech Culture Link: OVO Tech Blog Our technology culture is key to our success Everything we've achieved has come from our culture of empowerment and ownership in tech. Our teams are motivated by owning products that positively impact over a million people and also our environment, from inception to continuous improvement. We believe strongly in test driven development, continuous delivery and building scalable, resilient solutions. Our engineers love working in teams and collaboratively building features, sharing their learnings and deepening their own knowledge. Link: OVO Tech YouTube
