Frontend Developer

About Piclo

Piclo is on a mission to make our energy system smart, flexible and more sustainable.

The energy industry has entered a new era. Supply and demand are decentralising fast; energy companies are starting to embrace renewables and looking for new ways to reduce costs, increase efficiency and build a smarter grid. That’s where Piclo comes in.

Our flagship product, PicloFlex, is an industry first - it’s the leading online marketplace for flexible energy trading in the UK, and frontrunner in a sector that’s poised to transform smart energy technology by enabling renewables, batteries and electric vehicles to help balance the grid.

Frontend Developer

We’re hiring a Frontend Developer to work on both existing and new projects that are transforming the energy industry. You’ll be joining our friendly team at an exciting time, as the first auctions went live on our trading platform this spring and we’re busy preparing for more. .

About you

Our ideal candidate meets many - but not necessarily all - of the below criteria:

  • You have 2+ years professional experience of writing client-side JavaScript, HTML and CSS
  • You are familiar with Vue.js and MJML (or interested in learning). If you already know HTML, CSS and JavaScript, you’ll pick them up quickly
  • You have experience using Stylus (or another CSS preprocessor and are willing to learn Stylus)
  • You have strong UX and design sensibilities, and a desire to sweat the small stuff
  • You are flexible and have a positive attitude towards mucking in with whatever the team needs on a given day
  • You are comfortable working and communicating with other teammates from mixed disciplines
  • You are committed to good practices for continuous delivery including code reviews, testing and documentation
  • You are fluent in English, even if it’s not your first language

Also desirable:

  • You are motivated by Piclo’s mission to accelerate the growth of the smart energy grid and excited to join a growing team
  • Experience in small start­up environments
  • Understanding of the energy industry, from the perspective of suppliers, regulator or the networks

About the role

We’re looking for Frontend Developers 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.
  • You’ll have the freedom to split your time between our bright, modern office in central London (Old Street/Shoreditch), or work remotely (~2 days per week) once you’re up to speed.
  • Salary £40,000-£60,000 depending on experience
  • Start date ASAP
