The OVO Group’s mission
is to drive progress towards net zero carbon living. To reach zero, we need everyone to come together. Not as customers buying energy, but as members with a common goal.
The climate crisis is humanity's greatest challenge and the OVO Group organisations are all working together to lower our collective carbon emissions to zero.
Would you be interested in joining us to help achieve this?
Where in the world of OVO will I be working?
We are growing our new Tech Hub based in Lisbon, Portugal and are looking for a motivated, ambitious Software Engineering Manager to help us move further towards our goals! One key thing that all of our engineering teams have in common is a desire to develop brilliant, industry disrupting products as well as their own skills.
You will look after up to 2 teams of engineers, with around 8-10 Engineers. Engineering Managers contribute to both the technical and product vision of their teams, making sure that their products are successful.
You’re unlikely to be particularly hands-on with the code, but will have enough technical experience to be able to contribute to and guide technical discussions, bringing the big picture context.
What will I be doing?
Building strong teams is a vitally important aspect of the role, so you’ll be heavily involved in recruitment, onboarding and personal development of engineers.
You’ll work closely with the teams’ Product Managers and Agile Coaches to make sure they are balancing quality and flow with delivery of great products to our customers.
We have a very strong engineering culture that’s all about empowerment and ownership : all to solve one of the world’s greatest problems.
Is this the job for me?
Our tech :
We trust our development teams to choose their tech stacks. You’ll commonly encounter Scala, TypeScript, Clojure, Node, Java, Docker, Kubernetes, Kafka, React, Cypress, Swift and React Native.
We run our services in GCP, AWS and Azure.
Our cross-functional teams are product focussed, and are responsible for the entirety of their product, including feature conception, coding, testing, deployment, cloud infrastructure, monitoring, alerting, setting SLOs, and support.
We care passionately about technical excellence, and you’ll find a strong culture of automated testing, frequent deployments to production, and using agile practices.
OVO believes in fueling human progress with clean and abundant energy for all. We were set up to always find a better way and challenge the status quo.
