Job Description

Job title: DevOps / Production Engineer

Location: Lisbon (including hybrid)

Salary: €34,500 - €112,000

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?

You'll be joining the technology area of 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 best practices across the board of the engineering community.

As a Production Engineer you will join one of our Engineering teams, with the 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.

Our Platform teams 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.

What will I be doing?

  • You’ll be engineering tools that improve production & deployment capabilities for all teams; solutions that provide scalable foundations to building high-performing 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 & best practices 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 demonstrated abilities and attitude; we see Site Reliability Engineering as a mindset.

It would be excellent if you have...

  • A strong background in software engineering; we don’t mind what language! (Python, Scala, Clojure, Java etc.)
  • Extensive system design experience
  • Knowledge in Site Reliability Engineering
  • Interest in distributed systems and data streaming architecture
  • Experience with cloud computing (AWS / GCP) 
  • CD/CI tooling & continuous delivery best practices
  • Network & Security knowledge
  • Knowledge/interest in Kubernetes and container orchestration
  • Experience in scripting languages and automation practices
  • Demonstrable experience in agile and XP environments
  • Ability to articulate improvements within software engineering for operational benefit
  • An inquisitive and curious approach, with confidence to tackle difficult problems
  • Rapid adoptee of merit-proven new approaches & technologies
  • Problem solver / structured thinker
  • Always happy to help and a natural sharer of knowledge

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

  • 26 days annual leave per calendar year + bank holidays
  • Private Medical Insurance 
  • Life Assurance 
  • Daily food allowance
  • Discretionary annual bonus
  • Sunlight (equivalent of £350 per calendar year to spend on developing yourself)
  • One-off home working allowance (equivalent of £200 that you can expense for things like chair, desk etc)
  • Policies (we don’t yet have Lisbon-specific policies, but where legally-possible, the sentiment of our UK policies will apply to you)
  • 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 info. We're keen to meet people with varied backgrounds - our view is the more inclusive we are, the better our work will be.

We want to build teams which represent a variety of experiences, perspectives and skills, and we recognise talent on the basis of merit and potential. We understand some people may not apply for jobs unless they tick every box.

If you're excited about joining us and think you have much of what we're looking for, even if you're not 100% sure… we'd love to hear from you. Learn more about working in Kaluza on our careers page and LinkedIn.
