Job Description

The Tech team at zolar ensures that we create a customer-centric environment and a positive contribution to the climate. Our focus is to develop software that provides and enhances new and in some cases previously untapped opportunities for climate action, and generates business value. Each of our development teams takes full responsibility for a specific product, independently ensuring that the software is delivered quickly as well as functionally and completely. 

Our general tech stack at zolar includes TypeScript, node.js, React, ReactNative, Next.js, PHP, Symfony, Kafka, Docker and AWS and we extensively use 3rd party applications to stand on the shoulders of giants.
 
Get to know our team's tech stack choices better by having a look at our Zolar Tech Radar that lists our approach to languages and frameworks, platforms, processes and development tools we are looking to adopt or trial further. 
 
Our digital products enable our customers directly, our installer partners or our internal teams to configure, buy, install and operate their solar projects. 

Your role at zolar

As a Senior TypeScript Engineer, Integrations (f/m/x), you will be supporting a team of software developers to integrate 3rd party software tools into our application landscape, ensure reliability and fitness of the integrations. On your mission to enable our employees to work as efficiently as possible, you will be at the forefront of the success of our installation operations.

  • Find pragmatic and scalable technical solutions to grow our customer experience (internal and external customers) 
  • Deliver reliable, well-tested, scalable and robust integrations of 3rd party tools and internally developed applications. 
  • Set up and continuously grow our integrations framework, to make your team work easier and enable yourself to focus on the real problems, not repeating solutions.
  • Contribute to software engineering practices across the company

  • Support your colleagues to learn and grow by sharing your knowledge and insights openly and humbly.

What you will need to bring:

  • You have 5+ years of hands-on experience in software development in a team and a good understanding of the software product development lifecycle. 
  • You have hands-on experience with different APIs and integration variations for business-related software (eg. Marketing platforms, CRM, ERP and single-use business software, etc) 
  • You understand how to model and design data-centric solutions based on business and technical requirements and you know how to mangle data and data formats around. 
  • You’re fluent writing code in TypeScript (node.js, AWS Lambda) at senior or midlevel developer level and have a good understanding of what makes software systems scalable and what bogs them down. 
  • You have experience working with cloud services (AWS) and DevOps practices. Ideally, you have worked with event-based solutions like Kafka.
  • You’re fearless of learning new technologies. 
  • You’re awesome in communicating to your co-engineers and business stakeholder alike so they both understand the same about what you’re saying. 
  • You’re biased to getting things done, find a good balance between when 80% is enough and when it’s important to deliver 110%. 
  • You are familiar with agile development practices (e.g. Scrum, software Kanban, TDD, BDD, Pair Programming) and have managed projects before. 
  • You’re nice to work with!
