Help us make a big green dent in the universe. We're on a mission to drive the global renewable energy revolution, and we need loads more people to help us make our vision a reality.

Energy is changing.

For years, it was an industry dominated by large suppliers using outdated systems that put profits first and customers last. Now, we’re using the latest technology and green generation to transform energy for customers, bringing the UK cheaper, greener, and fairer energy.

We enjoy the best of both worlds: backing from a £6bn business of highly experienced and talented individuals, and the dynamic environment of a start-up.

We are the only Which? recommended energy supplier for 2020, the uSwitch supplier of the year, Energy Awards supplier of the year, and UK customer experience award winner for utilities. 

You’ll be working for a company that’s fighting climate change. We’re the largest investor in solar generation in the UK, and are funding wind and anaerobic digestion. We’re helping people to use greener technology and renewable energy, all helping move the UK towards a lower carbon future.

And for big change, we need big minds.

We’re looking for someone who’s passionate about code, curious, and eager to learn. You’ll be working alongside other talented people in the tech department. You’ll solve problems with technology to make us, and the industry, smarter and better for customers.

    • Work with GraphQL APIs
    • Knowledge of AWS
    • Experience of a large production React application
    • Any experience with any MVC frameworks or  Django is a plus

What you'll love about us...

    • Our company culture - we won best company to work for in 2019 and our CEO, Greg has recorded a podcast about our culture and how we empower our people   
    • Flexible working environment - genuine work life balance here, we are in the top 5 companies in the UK, we treat you as a human, and do our best to make work and life merge smoothly together 
    • Relaxation - we don’t count your holidays here, we work hard, and so we know you need to play hard as well (within reason of course) 
    • Equity Options Scheme - you own your own part of the business, share options in the whole Octopus Energy Group so we all work together towards success 
    • Office culture - have a certain tech requirement? We’ll do our best to get it. Our offices are also stocked with fruit, breakfast, great coffee and soft drinks. Weekly on a Friday we all get together (this happens virtually too) for company updates and drinks - we call it Family Dinner 
    • Your development is important - we support and help with development including internal and external courses, learning, study support etc, all bespoke to you 
We’re looking for someone who thrives on solving tough problems. Someone who can challenge those around them, and be challenged, while delivering delightful experiences for our internal and external customers.

If this opportunity sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you.
