Job Description

EnergyHub empowers utilities and their customers to create a clean, distributed energy future. Our customers are real utilities managing the real electrical grid supporting the normal lives of millions of real people. Our mission is to keep the grid running reliably while enabling more renewables and less reliance on fossil fuel. 

 We are looking for an Engineering Manager who thrives in a fast-paced, dynamic environment, comfortable navigating ambiguity while moving projects forward,  and motivated to build programs and processes that foster greater team organization, efficiency and scalability across the organization. This person will focus on people management, strategic alignment and software development projects that have a meaningful impact on the progress of EnergyHub everywhere.

Projects you will work on: 

The Enrollment team’s mission is to maximize the number of dispatchable devices under management. The team works on projects related to:

  • All device signup flows – on the web, in-app and on 3rd party device UIs
  • Enrolled device retention and re-enrollment tools
  • Balancing the many different ways that different device manufacturers (of thermostats, batteries, electric vehicles and other DERs) communicate (via RESTful APIs, pub/sub, async file drops, etc) to coherently manage a millions-strong fleet of devices

What excites us about you:

  • Experienced in managing software development teams, ideally in a Java based environment
  • Believe in guiding teams with clear direction to ensure team has the right resources, ability to participate in solution development and making sure team is able to deliver quality, well-tested code on time, in scope, and focus on continued scalability
  • Work in partnership across the organization, including Product to define the team’s mission, vision and roadmap
  • Comfortable providing strategic oversight, architectural direction and execution for new team initiatives, eg, code refactoring and transition to micro-services environment
  • Strong integration background and an ability to ensure seamless enrollment of devices for our partners and guaranteeing their uptime (device experience ideal, not required)
  • Motivated to learn about and manage the process of integrating devices from various manufacturers and creatively solving the onboarding process for each of those devices without limiting their use and effectiveness
  • Thrive on building your team’s skills through coaching, mentoring and training opportunities
  • Believe in continuously raising the bar through sustainable, high quality execution of your team through organizational evolution, process improvement efforts and leveling your team’s technical prowess

What’s important to us:

At EnergyHub we care about your passion and how you can contribute to our mission, not about the schools and companies on your resume.

This is not a list of requirements and we certainly don’t expect that you need to hit every bullet point to be a great candidate or great in the role. However, these things will catch our eye and demonstrate many of the core skills needed.

  • Core technical knowledge and experience with some of the tools and technologies at EnergyHub with a focus on Java, Spring, AWS (EC2, ECS), MongoDB and PostGres
  • Secondary technologies we would be interested in would be C#/.NET and experience with Python to drive automation and micro-service efforts
  • 2+ years of experience directly managing teams of developers (ideally with teams of 5-7+)
  • Clear the way for architectural conversations and conclusions with teams while also providing framework and process needed to effectively deploy software in an Agile environment
  • Conduct code reviews across the team and undaunted about working in the existing code base as needed
  • Ability to learn from unsuccessful projects with appropriate corrections to improve process, resource, and coaching
  • Ambiguity and a dynamic work environment are exciting and present unique opportunities for growth, innovative solution development, etc
  • Believe in a test first approach to coding
  • Successful launch of multiple products or new features into the market
