Job Description

Job title: Tech Lead - Tariffs and Pricing
Location: Lisbon
Salary: €66,946 - €93,628

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 Tariffs and Pricing team at Kaluza. Our mission is to enable retailers to continuously deliver the most innovative and competitive tariffs in the market through an intuitive, flexible and customisable platform. 

The team is part of a larger group working on the Kaluza Retail platform called ‘Orion’. This is a single instance multi-tenant 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 looking to transform to a multi-tenant, international ready model to help the business take on new challenges and external customers.

What will I be doing?

You'd be joining as a tech leader contributing to the long term technical strategy, taking on responsibility for the team's domain and codebase and ensuring that the team achieves its product and technical goals. On a day to day basis, you would be fully embedded in the team and take a leading role in ensuring the team is operating effectively; you will also be working within a team of other senior leaders responsible for designing and evolving the architecture for this platform over the long term. This work will include building proof of concepts, delivering code into production, whiteboarding or collaborating with other teams

and engineers to achieve needed steps.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Promoting engineering and delivery best practices within the team
  • Ensuring SLOs for the services we provide are met
  • Technical mentorship of team members
  • Championing progressive architecture and reviewing design solutions with other engineering leaders
  • Collaborating and working with stakeholders within and external to Kaluza to understand how our data can be used
  • Contributing to platform-wide choices in terms of our platform boundaries, partnership options and architecture
  • Being a part of the Kaluza-wide technology leadership team

Is this the job for me?

Ideally you will have/be

  • Experience solving important technical and architectural challenges
  • A keen desire to partner with senior leaders as well as individuals within teams
  • Be equally passionate about hands-on engineering as well as technical strategy
  • Experience in delivering solutions in a pragmatic, efficient and iterative way
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Experience working in an agile environment
  • Experience in building good working relationships with individuals across the entire business
  • Enjoy working in a fast paced, challenging, highly innovative, collaborative environment

Our tech stack is different in different parts of the platform: Scala, Go, TypeScript and React are very common. We’re cloud native and use Docker, Kubernetes, Kafka and Terraform. We run our services in GCP and AWS.

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)

Even better? You’ll have access to these benefits from day 1 of joining.

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 love to hear from you
