Principal Engineer (Remote)

Electric vehicle sales are booming - it’s been predicted that 40% of new cars sold as of 2030 globally will be electric. But one of the most challenging elements of owning an electric vehicle is its charging - and that’s where we come in.

We set up in 2018 to make EV charging simple, green and low cost for drivers, to encourage EV adoption and contribute to the decarbonisation of transport. Core to the platform is a proprietary smart-charging algorithm, dynamically aligning charging with intermittent low-carbon electricity, reducing carbon emissions from grid electricity by as much as 70%.
We have a diverse and fully remote team of roughly 60 - and we’re growing! We’ve secured $13.5m in Series A funding, and were named ‘Best Energy Startup in the World’. But we need more talented folks to join us on the journey as we launch worldwide, grow our user base to over 1 million, and deliver new charging services and analytics offerings.

The role

As a Principal Engineer, you’ll be thinking ahead on our technical roadmap, ensuring the features we’re building will enable us to scale the product to as many users and clients as possible. You’ll be thinking about how features and modules can be built in a maintainable and reusable way, whilst finding balance to deliver features quickly. You’ll be a technical leader within the company - mentoring and advising the team, encouraging knowledge sharing and contributing to a culture of collaboration and continuous learning.

You’ll be driven in developing your own skills, always evaluating new technology trends and identifying how to leverage these to improve our product.

Our stack includes Django, React (JS and Native), PSQL, AWS, CloudFormation and Ansible. You should be excited by the challenge of building a system to handle the complexity and scale of EV charging globally.

What are we looking for?

  • Technical excellence - you’ll either be a technical leader in your existing role, or you’ll be a senior engineer who’s ready to make the step up, already having built complex and scalable systems and mentored in the past
  • Experience working with a similar technology stack (Python, Django, PSQL, Celery, AWS) for multiple years
  • Experience working with IoT technologies and systems bridging the worlds of software and hardware is highly desirable
  • A product-focused approach, with interest in the problem space we're working in and all the potential within it
  • A continuous learner - someone who loves to read about the latest trends and approaches in technology. Ideally, you’ll have a blog or be active in some tech communities

How will we support you?

  • Remote working, investing in your home office setup or a coworking location convenient for you
  • Access to conferences, meetups and training
  • A top of the range Macbook Pro and all you need to do your best work
  • A structured career progression framework and advancement opportunities
  • Employee perks and benefit schemes
  • Quarterly team meet-ups, to collaborate and have fun in person!

If you don’t have all of the requirements but you’re really interested in what we’re doing, please apply anyway! We’d love to hear from you and may be able to tailor the role around your abilities and experience. We value applicants regardless of their background or years of experience.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity. We do not discriminate based on race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

We're transparent with our salaries - this position pays 84,300 GBP adjusted for cost of living.
