Full-stack software engineer, Platform team

Oslo, Norway

Full time


Otovo is one of Europe’s fastest growing greentech start-ups. We want clean and local energy in every home and are determined to make that dream a reality! By using software and technology we are able to make solar energy easy, cheap and available everywhere.

Since launching in 2016 we have come a long way - you can find us in Norway, Sweden, France, Spain, Italy, Poland, Germany and Brazil and we won’t stop expanding. We are currently working on launching in new countries, and that’s why we need you on our team!

What does the platform team do?

The platform team at Otovo creates all the tools that our installers use, the pricing engine as well as all the project management tools we use to deliver projects to our customers. In short, everything that happens after a customer has signed up for getting their new energy installation from us. Our software is mostly written in Python using the Django framework, with a design system encoded in Tailwind CSS - and of course varying amounts of modern Javascript.

What are we looking for?

As we grow we see the need to invest more in creating great user experiences. We're looking for someone that wants to help us achieve that goal. We believe the right person is a great teamplayer that’s not afraid to ask for help, or come with suggestions. We have a strong team culture and hope you can contribute positively as we face new challenges.

Ideally you have experience using the technologies we use (Python, HTML, CSS, and Javascript), but the most important thing is that you're willing and not afraid to roll up your sleeves and learn.

So in short;

  • You like learning as well as sharing knowledge with others
  • You are able to drive changes that you believe in
  • You want to work with the entire technology stack to solve our users' needs
  • You care about consistency and creating great tooling to make beautiful designs come to life

What's in it for you?

  • You'll get to be part of our journey. We learn fast and encourage bold attempts and risky experiments: Otovo is a puzzle to work on and a riddle to solve. If you like that, you'll like it here.
  • The product team is located in the main office in Torggata, in the middle of Oslo. Help yourself to free lunch in the kitchen or head out into Oslo's main food street.
  • We enjoy being together in the office, and are open to working from home when you need focus time.
  • Here's some more of what we offer:
  • More solar panels → reduced global warming. You have a chance to make a meaningful contribution to the world.
  • You'll work with enthusiastic colleagues; passionate for their fields and eager to learn.
  • Great pension and insurance coverage.
  • We take care of your internet and phone bills—no more slow access at home.
  • Pick your own gear.
  • We're very flexible regarding working hours.
  • We'll help you out if you have to relocate to Norway.

Hiring process

  • Technical interview - working on a technical problem together.
  • Third interview - meeting up with colleagues outside of the product function.

If all of the above checks out nicely, we'll call a reference that you provide before we send you an offer. The whole process should take between 2 and 3 weeks.
