Software Engineer - New Markets Team

Madrid, Berlin, Oslo, Norway

Full time



As one of Europe's fastest growing greentech start-ups, we're determined to make our dream of bringing local and clean energy to every home a reality.

Otovo provides solar panels to homeowners and we use software and technology to make solar energy easy, cheap, and available everywhere. We make solar easy by providing tailored offers to customers visiting our website and entering their address. No need for home visits. We make solar cheap by providing a platform where installers compete on price and quality to get projects. We make solar available everywhere by quickly expanding our platform to new markets all over the world. We have come a long way since launching in 2016—we now have happy, solar-producing customers in Norway, Sweden, France, Spain, Poland, Italy, Germany and Brazil. We won't stop until there’s local and clean energy in every home.

If you ever dreamed of making scalable yet delightful software that will be used for good, this is your chance.

What you will do

We are setting up a new team that will be dedicated to launching Otovo in new markets. This cross-functional team will collaborate on everything from regulatory hurdles to localization and scalable product adaptations. Together, we will make sure that Otovo hits the ground running and wins in these new markets.

You will work across the organization with people from an ever growing number of countries, backgrounds and cultures. All the while using this insight to create the best product possible.

You will be a part of a highly cross-functional team that:

  • Localize and adapt the platform to make it work in new markets Otovo is launching in
  • Assist with onboarding new local teams, and getting them to a place where they can perform as efficiently as the markets we are already in
  • Iterate on our go-to-market process so that the next market launch goes even smoother than the last one. You will break numerous Otovo-records during this work.
  • You don’t have to be a 10x engineer, but you will be working on 10x solutions, so make sure to bring your growth mindset; you deliver today, but build for tomorrow.

Who we think you are

  • You are ambitious, consistently looking to improve the way you work  and not afraid to make mistakes.
  • You have experience with web development, ideally also some experience with our tech-stack; Python, Django, Javascript, React and Postgres.
  • You are committed to writing clean code of high quality, and have experience with developing solid and scalable software architecture
  • You are pragmatic and able to deliver fast when you need to, and your solutions are built to last
  • You are self-driven,take ownership of your tasks and are not afraid to contribute with ideas.

What's in it for you?

You get to be part of the journey. As a company, we have so much left to learn and figure out. Otovo is a puzzle to figure out of, a riddle to solve. If you like that, you'll like it here.

Here's some more of what we offer:

  • More solar panels = less global warming. You have a chance to make a meaningful contribution.
  • This is a high leverage position and we guarantee you'll learn a lot.
  • You'll work with colleagues that are enthusiastic, passionate, and eager to learn.
  • All of the boring stuff in order with great pension and insurance coverage.
  • We take care of your internet and phone bills - no more slow access at home.
  • Hardware budget where you're free to pick your own gear.
  • You will have a lot of flexibility when it comes to working hours.
  • If you want to relocate to Norway, we'll help you out.

So much good stuff! What's not to like?

Hiring process

Update your CV and submit your application to us here. If we think you could be a good fit, we will start an interview process that looks like this:

  • First interview - informal first meeting with potential future colleagues.
  • Case interview - working on one or two realistic problems 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.

Why wait? There's no time like now!
