What we do.
We believe that renewable electricity is the future and our best way of fighting against climate change. However, for us to rely mostly on renewable electricity fundamental changes to the current electricity power system must take place. And we want to lead this transformation!
At Flower, we operate our Digital Power Refinery Platform also known as a virtual power plant (VPP). To our digital platform, we connect to and control a vast pool of generation, consumption, and storage assets from large-scale industrial facilities to decentralized energy resources which we optimize to produce the most benefit for the electricity system both locally, regionally, and system-wide. We are currently expanding the team and entering an exciting phase of launching our solutions in new European markets. Are you interested in helping us to keep developing exceptional energy solutions, connecting over 5000 existing assets to our platform? Then come and join us at Flower!
About the role
We in the Power Refinery team are now looking for our next colleague to join Flower as a Backend Developer. You would be joining our highly driven, dedicated, and competent tech team. We develop most of our solutions in Python and orchestrate them in Amazon Web Services (AWS). At Brokerage, we build our solutions as web services in particular in the form of APIs to communicate with external stakeholders.
You will contribute to the architecture and development of an important stage in our solutions. In particular, the Brokerage squad is dedicated to ensuring that the results of our operations reach their destination and that we receive and store the responses of our partners. The central role of this position is to help the Brokerage squad with technical implementations such as the development and operation of the Brokerage platform. Thanks to your contribution, our flexible solutions will get to the relevant market actors and contribute to the green energy transition of the electricity system.
In your daily work, you will work closely with your colleagues with related skills (backend, full-stack, data engineers, data scientists). As we are a fast-growing startup, your tasks will vary over time and you will also collaborate with people in other teams to figure out the best solutions. In particular, you will mainly report to the Head of the Brokerage squad. As a Backend Developer, you will be expected to:
- Contribute to the development and improvement of our data pipelines.
- Develop, maintain, test, and design web services in the form of APIs to send and receive responses to the relevant marketplace.
- Deploy and build infrastructure in AWS.
Skills and requirements.
Some must-haves for the role:
- Degree in computer science, math, physics, engineering or similar.
- 1-4 years experience as a backend developer delivering production code or a similar role.
- Experience in writing code in Python.
- CI/CD experience, especially GitHub actions.
- Fluency in English.
Some nice-to-haves (for us to be a good match, we think you check two or more of these):
- Additional experience with other programming languages (Go, Java, C++, C#, etc.)
- Cloud services (preferably AWS but also GoogleCloud etc.).
- Experience with infrastructure as code (IaC).
- HTTP API/ web service experience.
- Knowledge of databases and SQL.
- Front-end development to build a platform to visualize operations and detect potential problems.
As a person, we believe you have a passion for the energy transition and tech, and you are eager to learn. You are able to work independently but also enjoy working in a team. We believe you have great communication skills and thrive in an agile environment where your own ideas and initiatives are encouraged.
You should be willing to submit to a background check as the security of the electricity system is our top priority.
If you are passionate about implementing tech solutions to make the energy transition happen and want to work in a dynamic and challenging environment, please apply for this exciting opportunity. We offer a competitive salary, a flexible work schedule, and a comprehensive benefits package. We encourage interested candidates to apply by submitting their CVs along with a brief motivational letter. In your letter, kindly provide insights into your personality, career aspirations, and specific reasons for your interest in the position and joining Flower.
We are looking forward to hearing from you!
