Kaluza’s vision is… 

To power a world where net-zero is within everyone’s reach

From revolutionising customer billing to smart electric vehicle charging, our technologies are empowering some of the biggest energy suppliers to better serve millions of customers and unlocking the benefits of renewable energy and smart devices to help decarbonise the grid. 

We are an agile scale up energy tech business, but we’re also backed by the resources of the UK’s largest independent energy supplier, OVO Energy. (The best of both worlds).

You would be working to grow the existing Kaluza platform, which supports our UK energy supply business. This platform has been built with scale and technical quality in mind, as the first real-time energy system created using functional programming and event sourcing. We are looking to transform to a multi-tenant, international ready model to help the business take on new challenges and external customers.

This is pivotal to Kaluza's strategy of providing the lowest cost to serve platform in the global energy market. 

You will be continually pushing the boundaries of the energy industry and technology in enabling energy retailers to provide award-winning customer service. 

Here’s some examples of the type of thing you may work on:

  • Working with domain champions in each squad to ensure coherent advancement of our domain model
  • Living & breathing the data we have and the data we’re going to be getting
  • Ensuring data quality standards across the domain model including adherence to our data-as-a-product approach

Our Retail Energy Platform is the foundation for decarbonisation efforts by Kaluza’s customers. This platform has been built with scale and technical quality in mind, as the first real-time energy system created using functional programming and event sourcing.
