We are looking for someone to solve complex data scalability challenges and build out our data engineering function from scratch

Octopus Energy is a tech-focused energy supplier for the UK market and we’re looking for an experienced Data Engineer to work closely with our Data Science and Development teams.

We're building a modern, event-driven platform for interacting with both consumers (via the web, mobile and smart-meters) and the industry (eg data flows, consumption forecasting, trading on the wholesale market).

This is a rare opportunity to use technology to help fight climate change through helping the UK to use green technology and renewable energy sources.

As our customer base grows exponentially so do our datasets. We’re building a modern, functional data platform that can harness this data and use it to improve our customer experience and boost the efficiency of our business. This is a unique opportunity to solve complex large-scale data scalability challenges that come with implementing a new environment into production. You will be given the autonomy to make important technical decisions and be given the authority to build out the Data Engineering team. If you are looking to make a real impact in a fast growing company and step up into a lead position then this is the role for you.

Why you should work for us

  • We have difficult technical problems to solve. With the advent of smart meters, we'll soon be processing millions of meter readings a day. We need the right technology in place to handle this smoothly as well as feeding data into analysis and machine learning pipelines.
  • 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), host our own Hackathons and can often be found at tech meet-ups and conferences.
  • You'll be working for a company that’s fighting climate change. Our parent company is the largest investor in solar generation in the UK, and are funding wind and anaerobic digestion. As a supplier, we're helping people to use greener technology and renewable energy, all helping move the UK towards a lower carbon future.
  • We are leading the industry in data and innovation. We recently launched the UK’s first dynamic time of use tariff, the Agile Octopus and are working on projects in electric vehicles, home batteries, smart charging and smart meters.

Our technology

On the server-side, we mainly use Python. Most of our websites are powered by Django and the Django-REST-framework. Our data science team works with the Python Data Analytics stack (Pandas, numpy, scipy, scikit-learn) for analysis, forecasting and machine learning. We use Celery, RabbitMQ, SQS and Airflow for background processing and data pipelines.

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

What we’re looking for

  • Experience administering SQL databases (ideally Postgres)
  • Competent in building optimised and efficient SQL queries to extract data
  • Advanced Software Engineering experience in Python
  • Extensive experience working with medium to large datasets using the AWS toolset
  • Hands-on use of workflow management frameworks (e.g. Airflow, Luigi, Apache NiFi)
  • Exposure to medium to large data processing and querying tools (e.g. Spark, AWS Athena or Presto, Hadoop, ELK etc)
  • Experience with data lake/warehouse and data pipeline design
  • Passion for solving complex technical challenges using data

The energy industry is changing, and technology is at the forefront of innovations that will transform it forever.

At OVO, technology and digital products are at the heart of our customer experience and they are key to our commercial success.

We were the first energy company to offer our Pay As You Go customers the opportunity to top up using their phone, the first company to offer real time electricity and gas usage data, and the first to release an apple watch App. We’ve been featured in Wired magazine for our ability to develop software to shatter the status quo.

But we’re just getting started.

We need to develop, test, and release software that scales, quickly and reliably. Over the last few years, we’ve built a highly skilled team of software engineers that is making a real impact to our business, and shaking up our industry.

We care about code quality, test automation and continuous delivery. Our developers drive our technology choices and own the software they create from their laptop all the way through to production. We’re building a better energy company, and we’re doing it one Git commit at a time.

Right, I’m convinced… but where in the world of Ovo will I be working?

You will be working as part of our technology team, based in our Notting Hill office.

That sounds great! What will I be doing?

  • Take ownership of, architect, build and scale parts of our microservice platform.
  • Build features into our front-end products
  • Drive both product and technical improvements
  • Communicate your ideas, engage with different teams and encourage debate and collaboration.

That sounds super exciting, but… Do I have what it takes?

  • Experience building scalable, distributed web applications in any language (we use Scala, but it’s not a requirement)
  • Comfortable with object oriented and functional programming
  • Experience with REST and asynchronous event driven programming.
  • Happy to move to the front-end when required, building features in HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • Passionate about code quality and test automation
  • Experience with CI, and ideally CD
  • Experience driving automation across build, test and release processes.
