Description

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 last year and the internal tools that let us deliver a Trust Pilot score of 9 out of 10.

We work in project-based sprints in integrated teams and encourage an open and transparent working environment.

Currently the following pods are looking for Senior Software Engineers:


Member

Help us create applications and services that allow our members to manage their accounts via desktop, mobile, SMS and email. You’d be working in a multi disciplinary team with developers, testers, designers, product managers and subject matter experts, developing across the full stack. We’ve got ambitious targets for customer self service and we’re always looking for innovative and exciting new ideas.


Energy Specialist Technology

We enable the Energy Specialist team to provide the best member service in the energy industry. You'll be using technology in interesting ways to automate tasks, simplify workflows, and build improvements to members experiences across products to reduce the need for them to get in touch with us. We're always on the lookout for making things better as we grow.


Growth

The number of people that have their energy supplied by Bulb has grown 1,000% per year and we're on a trend to do the same this year. Join the pod that's working on driving this growth as part of a multidisciplinary team working across the full stack, and help tackle exciting challenges, ambitious opportunities, and powerful products - such as the journey customers use to switch their energy, the most visited Bulb product Bulb.co.uk and more!


Smart

We're responsible for the smart meter rollout at Bulb. This includes everything from allowing member to booking meter installations to the Bulb Account experience once you have a smart meter and analysing the usage data to help us buy energy more efficiently. We're a multi disciplinary team and work closely with the experience team to ensure our members get the best smart meter experience.


Prepay

This is the team managing the whole experience for our members with smart or traditional prepayment meters. Prepay meters are the ones you have to top up to get energy at home. These customers have often been neglected and ripped off by the energy industry, we’re working to solve that - to deliver a great product at the affordable price people deserve.


Requirements

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.


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:

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. The key features of this structure are:
