Job Description

Job title: Software Engineering Manager

Location: London/ Bristol/ Edinburgh (including hybrid)

Part time available?:Yes

Salary: £70,000 - £120,000

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 Kaluza Technology community. We’re a large team of both data-led and product focused Software and Production Engineers, pushing the boundaries of technology and working at an extraordinary scale. As a collective we strive for engineering greatness and by ensuring best practices across the board of the community.

You’ll be working on the Kaluza’s Energy Retail platform. This is a SaaS technology platform that aims to revolutionise the operating platforms for energy retailers globally. This platform has been built with scale and technical quality in mind and is the foundation for decarbonisation efforts by Kaluza’s customers. 

We are in the process of transforming the platform's architecture to create global “spinnable” environments, this is to support rapid onboarding of multiple clients and allow Kaluza to adapt to an ever changing energy landscape.

What will I be doing?

You will look after a team of engineers, up to 6 direct reports.

The team is responsible for 2 products:

    • The Kaluza Events Gateway.  The interface for Kaluza teams to push data in real time to retailers.
    • The Kaluza Comms Platform.  The interface for Kaluza teams to make Email, SMS and Postal communications to the customer.

Building strong teams is a vitally important aspect of the role, so you’ll be heavily involved in recruitment, onboarding and personal development of engineers. You’ll work closely with the teams’ Product Managers and Agile Coaches to make sure they are balancing quality and flow with delivery of great products to our customers.

We have a very strong engineering culture that’s all about empowerment and ownership: all to solve one of the world’s greatest problems.

Key responsibilities include:

Engineering Managers contribute to both the technical and product vision of their teams, making sure that their products are successful. You’re unlikely to be particularly hands-on with the code, but will have enough technical experience to be able to contribute to and guide technical discussions, bringing the big picture context.

Is this the job for me?

  • You’re passionate about nurturing engineering talent, encouraging their development, and also ensuring everyone is aligned with product delivery objectives
  • You are genuinely excited about developing products that will positively impact over a million people and also our environment
  • You have experience working with high performing engineering teams who have a strong sense of autonomy in their technical decision making
  • You use your influence and stakeholder management skills to have wide-reaching impact
  • You love building scalable, resilient products
  • You seek learning opportunities to deepen your expertise or broaden your knowledge

Ideally you will have:

  • Passion about technical excellence, you’ll find a strong culture of automated testing, frequent deployments to production, and using agile practices.
  • We trust our development teams to choose their tech stacks.  The team currently uses Scala, Docker, Terraform, Kafka, CircleCI. We run our services in AWS.
  • Our cross-functional teams are product focused, and are responsible for the entirety of their product, including feature conception, coding, testing, deployment, cloud infrastructure, monitoring, alerting, setting SLOs, and support. 
  • Kaluza believes in fueling human progress with clean and abundant energy for all. We were set up to always find a better way and challenge the status quo.
