Job Description

Job title: Developer Experience Engineer

Location: London, Bristol, Edinburgh (including hybrid)

Salary: £62,500 - £91,500

Kaluza wants to power a world where net-zero is within everyone’s reach, by building the platform that will accelerate a sustainable, affordable and resilient energy transition. It’s a huge challenge, but often the toughest problems are the most rewarding to solve.

Since launching in 2019, Kaluza’s technology has been empowering some of the biggest energy suppliers to better serve millions of customers.

From revolutionising billing to smart electric vehicle charging, our real-time cloud platforms transform supplier operations, reducing cost to serve and boosting engagement. And most importantly, they enable suppliers' customers to drive decarbonisation with smart, low carbon technologies.

Where in the world of Kaluza will I be working?

This role is to join a growing Developer Experience function at Kaluza. We are a large team of both data-led and product focused Software and Production Engineers, pushing the boundaries of technology working at an outstanding scale. As a collective we strive for engineering greatness and ensuring standard methodologies across the board of the engineering community.

Developer Experience at Kaluza has a mission to ensure our software engineering teams have the right conditions to build and operate high-performance, reliable, secure & scalable systems. You’ll provide mentorship, implementation and guidance on improvements to infrastructure and observability across teams at Kaluza.

This is a varied role where you’ll be exposed to the full technology stack and will work across projects spanning deployment & infrastructure automation, SRE, performance engineering, release engineering and monitoring distributed systems, all with close collaboration with engineering teams.

We build software tools, infrastructure and automation that are reusable across many software teams while being reliable for the future. This enables us to scale the freedom and autonomy Kaluza’s engineering culture is built upon.

You will

  • Engineer tools that improve the life of all members of all teams; solutions that provide scalable foundations to building impactful services
  • Work on defined projects, directly with teams, that aim to give their operations a boost, such as improving continuous delivery pipelines with pipelines and infrastructure as code
  • Align with the rest of Engineering Services in driving operational excellence & standard methodologies around service performance, deployment, monitoring and availability

Is this the job for me?

We are looking for excellent engineers and whilst experience is important, ultimately less so than your proven abilities and demeanour; we see Developer Experience as a mentality.

It would be excellent if you have...

  • A background in software engineering; we don’t mind what language, but Python is the language we use as a team!
  • Extensive system design experience
  • Experience with cloud computing
  • Network & Security knowledge
  • Experience in scripting languages and automation practices
  • Demonstrable experience in agile and XP environments
  • Ability to articulate improvements within software engineering for operational benefit

Here at Kaluza we are 100% committed to providing a reliable platform for our clients. As part of that commitment, our engineering ownership model is “you build it, you own it.”  Our engineering teams have a high sense of ownership and support their critical services both in and out of normal working hours.

Kaluza Values

Here at Kaluza we have five core values that guide us as a business: 

We’re on a mission, We build together, We’re inclusive, We get it done, We communicate with purpose.

Our values are not words on a wall — they are at the heart of our culture. They are how we make decisions and how we treat each other. They are concrete and clear, and reflect what we as people, and as a business, really care about.

Kaluza’s vision is to power a world where net-zero is within everyone’s reach. Would you be interested in joining us to help achieve this?

From us you’ll get

  • An additional 9% of your salary to spend on a wide range of benefits, including your pension, a selection of lifestyle, health and green benefits, or simply take it as cash!
  • Private Medical Insurance and Life Assurance
  • 26 days holiday, including a day off for your birthday you can take at any point
  • Flexible bank holidays, 5 of which you can choose to take whenever you like (3 are fixed days)
  • Progressive leave policies with no qualifying service periods, including 26 weeks full pay if you have a new addition to your family
  • Discretionary annual bonus
  • A dedicated personal learning budget
  • Flexible working — we trust you to work in a way that suits your lifestyle
  • And more...

Even better? You’ll have access to these benefits from day 1 when you join.

We want the best people

At Kaluza, we empower our people to have choices around where and when they work - flexible working arrangements can be discussed for all of our roles. Please speak to the Talent Acquisition team for more information. We're keen to meet people with varied backgrounds - our view is the more inclusive we are, the better our work will be.
