Production Engineer

The OVO Group’s purpose is to drive progress towards net zero carbon living. To reach Plan Zero, we need everyone to come together - not just as customers buying energy, but as members with a common goal. As part of this ambitious plan, our goal is to become the ‘Leading Employer in the UK’ by 2030. If you think you could be the talent we’re looking for, then come and join the adventure!

We launched in 2009 with a mission to change energy for the better. Since then, we’ve welcomed over a million members, planted a million trees, and set our sights on helping save the planet.

As a Group, we’re working to become a net zero carbon business by 2030, while helping our OVO Energy members halve their carbon footprints at the same time.

Green energy and technology are great tools to fight the climate crisis with. But it’s people power that will rewrite history.

So we’re building a zero carbon team inside and out. Of people who share our values, feel inspired by our mission, and want to make change happen. When you work for OVO, it’s not just a job. It’s the work of a lifetime. And we want the sharpest minds to help.

Up for the challenge?

Where in the world of OVO will I be working?

This role is positioned within a squad (a group of teams) whose purpose is to support customers when handling their energy usage and payments. You’ll be exposed to the full technology stack and will work with teams to focus on their deployment & infrastructure automation, SRE, performance engineering, release engineering and distributed monitoring needs. You’ll also spend time collaborating on projects with other Production Engineers, such as working on internal tooling used by both your team and the wider engineering community at OVO.

Check out our Tech Blog to find out more about our DevOps culture: -******

What will I be doing?

* You'll be providing support and consultation for teams in handling their infrastructure and implementing production best practices and at time embedding in teams to pair with their engineers on specific problems
* Helping to engineer tools that improve production & deployment capabilities for all teams; solutions that provide scalable foundations to building high-performing services
* Work on defined projects, directly with teams, that seek to give their operations a boost, such as improving continuous delivery pipelines with pipelines and infrastructure as code
* Align with the rest of Engineering Services in driving operational excellence & best practices around service performance, deployment, monitoring and availability

Is this the job for me?

We are looking for excellent engineers and whilst experience is important, ultimately less so than your demonstrated abilities and attitude; we see Site Reliability Engineering as a mindset.

Ideally you will have:

* A strong background in software engineering; we don’t mind what language! (Python, Scala, Clojure, Java etc.)
* NoSQL experience
* Extensive system design experience
* Knowledge in Site Reliability Engineering
* Interest in distributed systems and data streaming architecture
* Experience with cloud computing (AWS / GCP)
* CD/CI tooling & continuous delivery best practices
* Network & Security knowledge
* Knowledge/interest in Kubernetes and container orchestration
* Experience in scripting languages and automation practices
* Demonstrable experience in agile and XP environments
* Ability to articulate improvements within software engineering for operational benefit
* An inquisitive and curious approach, with confidence to tackle difficult problems
* Rapid adoptee of merit-proven new approaches & technologies
* Problem solver / structured thinker
* Experience/interest in pairing with other engineers
