Python Job Details

Your responsibilities

Do stuff that matters - become part of our OPTIFRA team and contribute your own part to digitalize the energy industry with us, making renewable energy accessible and affordable everywhere.

Baptiste, Johannes, Mohamad, Vjeko, Sebastian, Willy and Yahya, as your future team are looking forward to growing together with you as a team and pursuing exciting goals such as developing the OPTIFRA product into a real product that can power thousands of our gridBoxes #getshitdone

How could you imagine your work week as a Python Software Engineer at gridX?

As a Python Software Engineer at gridX, you will work closely with industry energy experts to develop and maintain our energy management system applications written in Python and running in the cloud or on gridBox. You will also design code for testability and for future feature variations and improving the scalability and efficiency of the code base. You will support like everyone in the team in maintaining and troubleshooting our running applications, making sure we choose pragmatic solutions instead of getting lost in details.

Responsibility: You take ownership of the features you develop and run them in production (You built it, you run it) and are responsible for creating and maintaining REST APIs. Since you already have more than 2 years of full-time experience as a software engineer and are at an intermediate level, you also take responsibility for junior developers in the OptiFra team by supporting them in the introduction of new functions and encouraging them to develop a critical eye.

You bring your own ideas and projects to the day by thinking outside the box, finding different ways to solve problems and coming up with things that can be used for the product & team. #Make your mark
