Software Engineering Manager

Lisbon, Full time

Join the team making zero carbon possible 🤯

The climate crisis is humanity's greatest challenge and the OVO Group organisations are all working together to lower our collective carbon emissions to zero. Would you be interested in joining OVO Energy to help them achieve this?

ABOUT: Kaluza was born out of OVO Energy wanting to do things differently and an ambition to be market leading through the energy transition. When OVO was founded in 2009, all energy companies had the same technology strategy – buying off the shelf energy utility software. With a fast-evolving energy landscape, it is clear that the traditional approach to technology is no longer fit for purpose. Today’s energy retailers are grappling with the need to rapidly digitise and reap the rewards of modern technology across all areas of their businesses. In an increasingly connected and data-rich world, legacy operating systems are weighing – and slowing – retailers down, draining resources and hampering innovation for customers who are at the heart of the energy transition. While the electrification of heat and transport and the rise of the smart home are driving decarbonisation, suppliers are challenged with engaging customers in a more flexible and affordable energy system

From revolutionising billing to smart electric vehicle charging, Kaluza’s technology is empowering some of the biggest energy suppliers to better serve millions of customers. Its real-time cloud platforms transform supplier operations, reducing cost to serve, boosting customer engagement and enabling them to drive decarbonisation with smart, low carbon technologies.

Kaluza’s leading innovation is recognised across the industry, winning ‘Technological Innovation’ in edie’s Sustainability Leaders Awards 2020, ‘Transport Technology’ in BusinessGreen Technology Awards 2019 and ‘Best Innovation in Electricity’ at the UK Energy Innovation Awards 2019.


Where in the world of Kaluza will I be working?

You will be working on the Orion platform in Kaluza. Orion is a single instance multi-tenant SaaS technology platform that aims to revolutionise the operating platforms for energy retailers globally. This platform is the foundation for decarbonisation efforts by Kaluza’s customers. This platform has been built with scale and technical quality in mind, as the first real-time energy system created using functional programming and event sourcing. 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?

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.


Is this the job for me?

It could be if:

  • 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.

They want the best people

At Kaluza, they empower their people to have choices around where and when they work - flexible working arrangements can be discussed for all of their roles.
