Do you dream about creating a more sustainable future? At Uplight, we are motivating energy users and providers to accelerate the clean energy ecosystem. Working with over 80 of the world's leading electric and gas utilities, Uplight provides an end-to-end customer energy experience. Uplight delivers personalized experiences that customers have now come to expect-improving satisfaction, increasing revenue, reducing the cost to serve, and contributing to carbon reduction goals. We are B Corp certified, enabling us to put our values into action by not only making decisions for the benefit of our shareholders, but also for our customers, environment, employees, and community.
We are seeking a Senior Back-End Engineer to join our team and help us achieve our ambitious goals for our business and the planet.
What You Get To Do
This role is part of a new team being formed to build the platform and infrastructure for a new API and developer portal empowering our customers to build solutions for a more sustainable future. As part of this new team, you will help define the culture and processes with us as we build out the team together. You will:

    On the technical side, you'll have the opportunity to work with cutting edge cloud architectures and help define how we scale our data-driven platform. Most of our work will be in Python, but all we expect is knowledge of a modern programming language, an understanding of software development fundamentals, and a willingness to learn and work with Python. We are believers in the importance of developer experience and testing for long term success, so our code and processes take advantage of the latest in Python static typing, object-oriented design, and automated testing and deployment.

    • Senior-level understanding and experience with a relevant programming language in the context of backend development (Python, C#, Java, etc.)
    • An understanding of software engineering fundamentals, and the ability to articulate design trade-offs
    • Experience with multiple database types and an understanding of data schemas
      Bonus Points
      • API, SDK, or developer portal experience where developers were your primary customer
      • Cloud infrastructure management and dev-ops knowledge
      • Greenfield engineering experience or other experience that required dealing with ambiguity and involved personal and team ownership of solutions.

        • Are proud to be over 300+ rebels with an important cause by helping to create a more sustainable planet.
