Software Engineering Manager- Kaluza

Software Engineering Manager

Click here for an update from the Talent Acquisition team on how we are hiring during Covid19

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 ‘Best Employer in the UK’ by 2030. If you think you could be the talent we’re looking for, then come and join the adventure!

Kaluza is an ecosystem of intelligent platforms powering the future of energy. From revolutionising billing to smart electric vehicle charging, Kaluza’s technology is empowering some of the biggest energy suppliers to better serve their customers. Its real-time cloud platforms transform supplier operations, reducing cost to serve and boosting customer engagement. Powered by Kaluza, suppliers can invest in innovating for tomorrow’s customers and drive decarbonisation with smart, low carbon technologies that not only reduce energy bills, but lay the foundations for a more flexible energy system. kaluza.com

Where in the world of OVO will I be working?

You will look after 2 teams of engineers or 1 larger group, up to 12 direct reports. Engineering Managers contribute to both the technical and product vision of their teams, making sure that their products are successful. You’re unlikely to be particularly hands-on with the code, but will have enough technical experience to be able to contribute to and guide technical discussions, bringing the big picture context.

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?

* You’re passionate about nurturing engineering talent, encouraging their development, and also ensuring everyone is aligned with product delivery objectives
* You are genuinely passionate about developing products that will positively impact millions of people and also our environment
* You have experience working with high performing engineering teams who have a strong sense of ownership in their technical decision making
* You use your influence and stakeholder management skills to have wide-reaching impact
* You love building scalable, resilient products and have a good technical background in these areas
* You seek learning opportunities to deepen your expertise or broaden your knowledge

Our tech:

We trust our development teams to choose their tech stacks. You’ll commonly encounter Scala, Kotlin, TypeScript, Clojure, Node, Java, Docker, Kubernetes, Kafka, React, Cypress, Swift and React Native. We run our services in GCP, AWS and Azure.

Our cross-functional teams are product focussed, and are responsible for the entirety of their product, including feature conception, coding, testing, deployment, cloud infrastructure, monitoring, alerting, setting SLOs, and support.

We care passionately about technical excellence, and you’ll find a strong culture of automated testing, frequent deployments to production, and using agile practices.

OVO believes in fueling human progress with clean and abundant energy for all. We were set up to always find a better way and challenge the status quo.
