Job Description

About Us

The future of transportation is electric and our software solves the most critical emerging grid integration challenges to ensure that the impending energy transition is clean, equitable, and resilient. Our enterprise solutions help the grid absorb the coming electrification wave with ease. Utilizing modern, cloud-native platform architecture and robust systems optimization, WeaveGrid’s software is built from the ground up to tackle the most critical network challenges while meeting the stringent regulatory, security, and reliability requirements of the utility industry.

About the job

At WeaveGrid, we are working to accelerate the electrification of transportation and the decarbonization of the electric grid.  Our core software products monitor and manage the charging of electric vehicles on behalf of electric utilities.  That in turn depends on complex integrations with vehicle telematics APIs that are specific to different car and charger manufacturers (OEMs).  We are looking for strong backend engineers to help us build, run, and shape these integrations for our next phase of growth.  No previous experience in the energy sector is required.

In this role, we will ask you to:

  • Design and implement features and improvements to WeaveGrid’s central data systems incl. data integrations with car and charger OEM APIs.
  • Work closely with other engineers and product stakeholders to extend our product capabilities and/or improve reliability, data quality, effectiveness, scalability of existing offerings 
  • Own increasingly large and challenging projects and, over time, lead or coordinate the work of other engineers
  • Be an in-house expert at understanding, using, and shaping external OEM integrations and APIs between WeaveGrid and our OEM partners.
  • Work with our Python backend, relational database schemas, microservice architecture
  • Test your code to ensure completeness and correctness.
  • Be hands-on with our AWS-based cloud production environment e.g. rollouts, instrumentation
  • Grow your engineering skills and help others on the team do the same by participating in design reviews and code reviews.
  • Use Kubernetes, AWS, GitHub, Jira/Confluence, CircleCI, though experience here is not necessary.
  • Special projects and other duties as designated by your manager or assigned designee.

About you

  • You want to apply your talents to meaningfully address climate change.
  • You’re excited to collaborate with team members during reasonable local working hours (Pacific Time).  If local to the SF Bay Area, you are excited about our office and a flexible office schedule
  • You care about the craft of software.  You feel a sense of ownership about code. You enjoy solving hard problems and don’t mind the complexity of software that interacts with “the real world” 
  • You have an interest in cloud-based backend data systems, software interacting with real-world devices and data quality management that turns messy data into valuable business assets.  Past experience working in these areas is a huge plus!
  • You have solid experience working in Python or Go.. 
  • You enjoy being hands-on in the full lifecycle of software development - from early design to testing, production deployment, and post-launch iteration, to measuring and monitoring outcomes, and quickly fixing problems that may arise. 
  • You are comfortable working within a microservice based architecture and have experience with Docker, Kubernetes, or other microservice technologies. 
  • You appreciate Agile software development and DevOps practices.
  • You have experience working on smaller teams or at smaller companies and are willing to share that experience to make us better.
  • You believe in constant learning and are excited to help us build this growing company. 

About the process

  • Apply, and send us your resume/CV (we’ll do our best to reply within a week)
  • Complete a coding assessment demonstrating your abilities as backend engineer OR hop on a video call and complete a similar coding problem with one of our engineers collaboratively in real time.
  • Interview with three small panels, spanning a variety of engineers and managers at Weavegrid.
  • Final interview with the Co-founders.

The total compensation for this opportunity includes a base salary range of $103,000-$194,000 plus equity (stock options) and benefits. This is our target compensation range and is subject to multiple factors including role, level, experience, and location. As you go through our interview process, our recruiter will work with you to identify a competitive base salary within the proposed range and combine it with an equity package to get you excited about your future at WeaveGrid.
