Job Description

Job title: Software Engineer
Location: London or Bristol (Hybrid remote working)
Salary: £40,000-91,500

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?

You’ll be working on Kaluza’s Flexibility platform. Designed to be the nervous system connecting energy retailers, grid operators, and consumers, Flex will aid us in creating the distributed, consumer-centric, dynamic energy system of the future. Bridging the gap between distributed renewable generation and smart devices, it helps consumers shift their energy consumption to times when there's more renewable energy. This not only saves them money, but enables society as a whole to meet the challenge of decarbonising transport and residential heating/cooling. We’re also supporting this vital shift by building the innovative technology behind unique, market-leading customer propositions like Vehicle to Grid and Drive Anytime Energy Plan with our energy retailer partners.

Is this the job for me?

You’re the right person for us if:

  • You are genuinely passionate about developing cutting edge products that are redefining how and when people use energy to power their transport, heating and cooling needs to maximise the use of low cost, zero carbon electricity and balance the electricity grids in multiple geographies
  • You love building products in a lean way to maximise discovery and learning in market contexts that are undergoing rapid change, where there’s no ‘right answer’ yet
  • You love working in teams and collaboratively building features that impact customers
  • You are motivated by owning products, from inception to continuous improvement
  • You believe strongly in test automation, continuous delivery and working with best agile practices
  • You seek learning opportunities to deepen your expertise or broaden your knowledge

What experience you’ll need:

  • You’re a hands-on engineer with expertise in at least one programming language - if your experience doesn't match our stack exactly then don't worry, we hire based on software engineering talent, not language-specific skillset. Interested in us? We're interested in you!
  • You have built or contributed to a variety of systems, ideally in different technologies
  • Knowledge of the best engineering practices and continuous delivery
  • You have experience building highly performant applications

Our tech stack is primarily Go, Python, TypeScript and Flutter. We’re cloud native and use Docker, Kubernetes, Kafka and Terraform. We run our services in GCP and AWS.

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?

We want the best people

We’re keen to meet people from all walks of life — our view is that 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. But if you're excited about joining us and think you have some of what we're looking for, even if you're not 100% sure, we'd still love to hear from you.
