Help us make a big green dent in the universe



We're on a mission to drive the global renewable energy revolution, and weneed loads more peopleto help us make our vision a reality.



Our team

All technology is written and maintained by a multi-discipline engineering team of around twenty people. This includes server-side, client-side and mobile engineers working closely with UX experts, copywriters and designers.

We follow a Kanban-like approach, using Google docs and Trello to specify and manage work; Github, CircleCI and Terraform Enterprise as part of an immutable-infrastructure, continuous delivery pipeline; and Loggly, Sentry and Cloudwatch to measure performance and monitor production.



Engineering standards are high.





We pair program, thoroughly review and test code before it deploys, and maintain fast, high-value test suites. We have weekly tech talks, monthly blitz-days (eg sharpening our internal tools, upgrading dependencies) and can often be found at tech meet-ups and conferences.

Our coding conventions are open-sourceand we maintain atech blog .



Octopus is a great place to learn, work with some talented engineers and level-up your skills. This role offers a great opportunity to help shape the development of Australian market specific functionality into our global energy platform.



Our technology

On the server-side, we mainly use Python. Most of our websites are powered by Django and the Django-REST-framework. We also use Pandas, Numpy and Jupyter for analysis and forecasting, plus Celery, RabbitMQ, SQS and Airflow for background processing.



We use AWS heavily, employing most of the "Hashistack" (eg Packer, Consul, Terraform) as part of a continuous deployment pipeline. See, for example, Django, ELB health checks and continuous delivery .



Client-side, we use React, Redux and SASS; our mobile apps are built using React Native.

What you'll have...



We're looking for someone with a general interest in technology and problem-solving; someone diligent and thoughtful. It would be helpful to have experience/expertise in the following (in rough priority order):

Python

Django (or equiv. web framework)

Domain modelling

HTTP and REST APIs

Writing robust and fault-tolerant software

Celery and async processing

Postgres

Plus experience in the following would be a bonus:

AWS

Terraform, Packer, Consul

React and Redux

What you'll get...



Equity Scheme (own part of the business)

Flexible working environment

Support to help with development (courses, learning, development)

If this opportunity sounds like you and you have a genuine passion for what we're doing at Octopus Energy then we'd love to hear from you.



More about us

We believe energy should be better - for you and the environment. We’re a leading energy technology company providing a better experience for our customers through transparency, honesty and simplicity. Better for the planet, through real long-term investment in renewable generation and a low CO2 future. Better value, by throwing away the old business models of the “Big 6” and instead building a business that’s fit for the 21st century. We make energy green and flexible for consumers, with fair and transparent pricing. Through our home developed platform, cloud-based billing, and sophisticated use of data science, modelling and AI, we’re redefining what is possible in energy.



Our breakthrough Agiletariff has been widely reported as leading the way in energy innovation, and we’re passionate about fairness – we were first to uncover the widespread strategy of energy companytease and squeeze pricing and following on from this campaign, our CEO and Founder Greg Jackson presented evidence in favour of capping energy tariff pricesbefore the bill committee in Parliament .



We already supply 100% renewable energy to nearly 2 million homes and over 15,000 businesses (including Arsenal FCand the Cardiff Bluesto help them power their stadiums with 100% renewable energy) throughout Great Britain and we’re also the supplier behind M&S; Energy . We’re award winning for ourdisruptive technology and are delighted to be the only energy supplier to pass the rigorous Which? customer service tests and be their onlyrecommended energy supplier for 4 years in a row.



We also proudly enjoy a 5-star TrustPilotranking from our customers. We were named the Company that’s done the most in the past year to advance UK renewables at the REA Awards 2019, and most recently, our proudest award, that ofBest Company to Work For. Our group includes Octopus Energy, Octopus for Business, Kraken Technology, Octopus Electric Vehicles and Octopus Energy Services as well as our new net zero Centre -Octopus Centre for Net Zero.



We recently secured over £500 million of investment from Origin,Australia's largest Energy Company andTokyo Gas, to help us continue on our mission.
