About the role

We’re looking for a Full Stack Developer to join our existing team as we scale, maintain and improve the PicloFlex platform and deliver other new innovations in smart energy. Our software stack is comprised of a single-page app and a backend running on a serverless infrastructure.

In a typical week, you’ll collaborate with product, design and development teams to spec, build, test and deploy new features. You’ll work with our CTO and others to solve problems, triage bugs and troubleshoot production issues.

You’ll participate in team-led retrospectives and take an active role in shaping our production processes. As you learn the ropes, you’ll be presented with lots of opportunities to dig into the detail and contribute to technology strategy.

This is a full-time role, and we imagine you’ll work (mainly) office hours.

Piclo perks

Our London office is in Old Street/Shoreditch (EC2A) and has excellent transport links. It’s a calm, friendly environment with casual dress, free fruit/snacks and great coffee.

You’ll have the freedom to split your time between our bright, modern office or work remotely (~2 days per week) once you’re up to speed.

We run fortnightly sprint meets for the whole company so everyone is aware and engaged with our progress. We also stop work early every other Friday for Show and Tell, where the production team demo new features in a sociable atmosphere.

An annual allowance to spend on additional equipment, training, or conferences.

We have a generous holiday allowance of 33 days, a sound setup for working from home and a flexible 35-hour working week.
