Job Description

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 For years, it was an industry dominated by large suppliers using outdated systems that put profits first and customers last.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. You’ll be working for a company that’s fighting climate change. We’re helping people to use greener technology and renewable energy, all helping move Italy towards a lower carbon future.

And for big change, we need big minds.

​​Octopus Energy ItaliaOctopus Energy Italia is targeting 1 million Italian energy accounts by 2025 (5% of the market). The rapid expansion will be driven by an initial investment of €60 million from Octopus Energy, coming soon after the $600 million injection from Al Gore-backed Generation Investment Management that Octopus Energy Group received in October 2021 and the $300 million investment made by the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP Investments) made in December 2021. These two investments value the company approximately US$5 billion, rivalling that of many long-established energy giants. It will be a start-up environment and you’ll need to be able to solve problems independently but you will be supported by a Global team who can provide tools and experience from working in many other global energy markets.  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.What you'll have...Can write solid, semantic HTML and have experience writing SASSHave experience with JavaScript frameworks, particularly the React/Redux stackHave experience in crafting mobile-first responsive sites for a range of devicesKnow how to develop websites that meet AAA accessibility guidelines.Can create code that works consistently across different browsers and platformsCan take Photoshop/Sketch designs and bring them to life in codeExperience with the Django templating language a plus
