About the team Bulb is here to help our members cut their energy bills and reduce their carbon emissions. Our product teams make that happen. We’re developing products that will deliver the future of energy - from using AI to read energy meters, to making carbon offsetting fun and simple, from finding out how to get the most from Smart Meter data to helping people get paid for their solar energy. We also power the sign-up journey that helped us become the fastest growing company in the UK and the internal tools that let us deliver an excellent Trust Pilot score. We work in project-based sprints in integrated teams and encourage an open and transparent working environment. A Senior Software Engineer tends to: * Hold expertise in multiple technologies and understand long term technical strategy * Take responsibility for technical decisions and influence guidelines/principles across Engineering * Collect technical requirements from key stakeholders and provide technical direction to 1-5 Engineers, usually within a single pod, as agreed with the Principal Engineer * Have full domain knowledge within a pod and understand how it connects with the Mission and the rest of Bulb * Build additional knowledge by joining projects outside of your pod - we want you Engineers to gain exposure to the rest of the business! * Hire, onboard and help Engineers to perform better through technical mentoring and coaching At Bulb we want to hire people with the experiences necessary to get going quickly, but who are also interested in learning new things and are comfortable working in a changing environment. * You take pleasure from clear code, see writing tests as an integral part of the development process and understand the benefit of writing code and tests in small increments. * You are keen to learn new technologies and have ideas about how we do things better. * You like solving both real world and technical problems. * You are an enthusiastic team player who enjoys collaborating across teams and departments. * You are passionate about learning and personal growth. The Stack At Bulb we use a wide variety of technologies. While we have core technologies that we work with, we're always trying to pick the best tool for the job, and are always looking at what's on the horizon. Our stack currently includes: * Node, Typescript, Koa, GraphQL, React, React Native, Webpack, Babel * CircleCI, Kubernetes, Docker and Google Cloud Platform We use Git for source control, write tests and run continuous integration, and review each other’s code through pull requests. Ideally, you would be familiar with these technologies or similar patterns; notably, Typescript/Javascript coupled with React is a core technology for us. But we’re more interested in your broad experience of software development than of specific tools or libraries. You should be comfortable getting up-to-speed quickly in new tools and platforms. You should be pragmatic and experienced enough to know when a different choice of technology would be more suitable, and comfortable leading explorations into new technologies. Team Structure Teams at Bulb are cross-functional, self-organized and autonomous pods: * You’ll be working within a growing cross functional team composed of specialists with backgrounds in DevOps, Engineering and Security. * We practice Scrum/Kanban and work lean. * Work is not siloed, you’re able to commit across the stack, and you have a view of all the features the teams are working on. * We use data to drive continuous improvement in our development process and we review this data in our fortnightly retrospectives.
