Bring your mojo to OVO Energy
We’re looking for Backend Engineers to help us spread positive energy. The energy industry is constantly evolving and we’re at the forefront of it, using technology to build a better service for our customers. We know that our success is down to the talent of our teams. So, we’re looking for skilled Backend Engineers to help us harness the tech that will take us forward.
As an engineer you’ll collaborate and work across teams to build and scale distributed systems that focus on user value and business objectives. You’ll plan, design and build intelligent backend solutions that bind to our front end infrastructure, and create software and services that surprise and delight our customers.
You care about quality above all else and you know what it means to ship high quality code. You’re always looking to find the simplest solution, but simple doesn’t always mean easy or quick. It’s about always making sure you’re doing the right thing.
If you’re ready to shake, break and make things better, you might just be who we’re looking for.
Do I have what it takes?
Maybe you're a polyglot developer who already has commercial experience with functional programming. Or you might be eager to add functional programming to your list of skills. Either way, we’d love for you to join us and if you’ve got experience with any of following, that’s a plus too:
• Driving automation across build, test and release processes.
• CircleCI, GoCD.
• Scala, Kafka.
What’s in it for me?
We know our people are a big part of our power. So we make sure they can continue to progress and do their very best. For our Backend Engineers that means everything from attending tech conferences, to arranging internal meetups, taking part in ‘lightning’ talks at our Tech Friday sessions, right down to just sharing interesting stuff across Slack.
We also offer a range of benefits which include:
• Flexible benefits which can be spent on stuff like Healthcare, ISA investment, Cycle to work, Taste and Culture cards, tech for your home & much more
• Flexible working hours
• 25 days' holiday & day off on your birthday
• Open plan offices with video games & table tennis
• Free breakfast every day
• Getting involved in teaching kids to code
• Training budget
• Matched volunteering and matched fundraising
And, last but not least
This is your chance to work with passionate people and disruptive technology in a collaborative environment where you can bring your ideas to life. Our teams have total responsibility for designing, building, testing and running their applications. This is a place that gives you the power. Join us.
Closing date for applications: 18th May
