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!

Our energy and technology companies are working together to lower our collective carbon emissions to net zero by 2030, help our members halve theirs at the same time – and support everyone we work with on their journey to zero carbon.

We’re building a zero-carbon team, inside and out. Of those who share our values, feel inspired by our mission, and trust us to lead the way to zero. When you work for OVO Group, 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?

About OVO - Hi

OVO is on a mission to fuel human progress with green efficient energy for everyone, this has meant supplying the UK with zero-carbon green energy for the last 10 years. Now we are expanding the OVO mission internationally through our retail and platform businesses.

What’s the role?

You would be working to grow the existing Kaluza platform, which supports our UK energy supply business. 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.

This role is for a senior technical leader, driving the energy specific module of our platform to deliver on our long term plans and do some heavy lifting to ensure that we are making good architectural decisions across the board. They will be working within a team of other senior leaders responsible for designing and evolving the architecture for the generic pipeline. This work will include building proof of concepts, delivering code into production, whiteboarding or collaborating with other teams and engineers to achieve needed steps. They will work alongside a leadership team including product, delivery and design to achieve the overall goal.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Delivery of the Kaluza platform into international markets
  • Enabling a multi-tenant solution across groups of teams
  • Understanding existing Kaluza platform across industry and billing
  • Building additions or new services to support new customers alongside existing Orion teams
  • Defining data models and pipelines
  • Collaborating and working with other teams to make these plans reality
