Full Time
We’re looking for another Senior Software Engineer to join our Manchester-based team. We are building a complex and compelling system for our clients in the energy industry, that helps them integrate more renewable generation on to the Grid. To best serve our mission, you’ll delve into new subject matter every day and you’ll always be on the lookout for innovative ways to approach our projects. We’re therefore looking for curious, collaborative people who are eager to teach what the already know and who will jump at an opportunity to dive into something completely new.

Here’s where you come in:

You’ll join our award-winning team in the Northern Quarter. Our cloud service consists of a number of containerised microservices running on AWS and our codebase is mainly written in Java 8, Spring and Python, with a heavy dose of Javascript on the front end. We utilise S3 storage, kinesis streams and Amazon RDS for AWS, with Kubernetes to manage them. You might have a greater interest in some of these technologies more than others, but we’re looking for people who want to make a well-rounded, full stack contribution to every part of our projects.

What can you expect from Upside?

Your compensation will be more than fair - particularly compared with people doing similar work for similar organizations and we’ll provide you with a congenial place to work.
The work is complex and you’ll be given autonomy in your role – over what you do, how you do it and when you do it. We are Open Source contributors and provide our team with ample opportunity to pursue mastery of their craft. Your daily duties will also relate to a larger purpose; using bleeding edge technologies in a greenfield environment to help us build a newer, cleaner and fairer energy system. The coffee is pretty good, too.

If you’re interested in joining a growing start-up that is making a significant impact in the transformation of the energy system, apply now.
