Lead software developer – Python, Django and Postgres
Application deadline: 16th April 2021 (interviews may commence earlier)
At Scene, we are innovating new solutions to accelerate the decarbonisation of energy – enabling more renewables, and more low carbon technology like electric vehicles, heat pumps and smart devices to be installed. This is one of the great challenges of our time, essential to addressing climate change – but it also represents a great opportunity, to democratise the energy system and use automation to give individuals and communities more control over how the system operates.
We are looking for a lead software developer with confidence in rapid prototyping around research innovations, leading into the development of web services and user interfaces. Candidates with passion for web technologies and Internet of Things are invited to apply and be part of the Cloud ZUoS project team, working with our commercial and technical project team to bring the platform to life. We are looking for enthusiastic candidates with at least 5 years of experience in software development. Ideally you will also have a degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Data Science, or a relevant subject, or additional years of work experience.
As lead developer you will have applied software engineering principles in past roles and be confident in managing a small team of software developers, using appropriate techniques and methodologies. You will consider the following, using your own experience:
In addition, you will work with Scene’s management team taking ownership of key components of Scene products, prioritising features, managing deadlines and expectations and managing the development team. Where additional skills are required for the team, you will identify appropriate training or procure external resources. You will be key in growing a development team to support Scene’s ambitions for advanced software tools to support energy research and consultancy projects, as well as the development of commercial software service platforms.
Scene Connect (“Scene”) is a leading renewable energy consultancy in local energy and energy access, with innovation projects in the UK and the Global South. Due to the ongoing success of our innovation work, we are looking to expand our technical team with new appointments – with specific focus on our Cloud ZUoS project, designing the net-zero energy system of the future, to operate at the local scale.
We are focused on growing a thriving community and local energy sector through impact research, consultancy and innovation. Across the diverse portfolio of our work, Scene is committed to a socially just energy system transition to net zero. We are looking for candidates who buy-in to what we stand for, both in terms of our mission and our collaborative approach to team working. Check out our projects to see what we have done since we started in Edinburgh in 2011. We are a small, but steadily growing business – we currently have around 15 staff based either in our Edinburgh or London offices, or working remotely. We work across the UK, and are part of international projects in India, Rwanda, Nepal and Uganda.
We are an Equal Opportunities employer and we are committed to having a diverse and inclusive workforce. We welcome applications from Women, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates. We positively encourage applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates.
