Bring your energy to OVO

OVO is the UK’s leading independent energy technology company and supplier - we serve nearly one million customers with intelligent energy services.

OVO is not simply an energy retail business: it is group of innovative companies, who strive to use technology to deliver great customer value and more clean energy for everyone.

We’d like to hear from you if you have either:

  • Commercial experience with either React or AngularJS
  • AND/OR have a strong knowledge of JavaScript with a combination of the tools listed below

It would be cool if you’ve had experience in the following, but it’s not essential:

  • Vue, Parcel, Yarn, Elm, Web Assembly

Here are some of the tools you will learn to get the job done:

  • React / React Native
  • AngularJS
  • TypeScript, Flow
  • JavaScript (ES6)
  • CSS3 and CSS preprocessors (Less or Sass)
  • HTML5
  • AWS
  • JavaScript build tools (Webpack, Grunt, Gulp, Yarn, NPM).
  • TDD / BDD (Cypress, Selenium, Jest, Enzyme, Mocha, Chai, Typemoq)
  • We work in an Agile environment, using CI / CD

Why work at OVO?

We work in a highly agile environment with continuous releases and a large focus on testing (Unit, integration, UI testing).

We give our Software Engineers the freedom and trust to find and experiment with the best tools for the job, so that problems aren’t just solved but solved in the most optimal way.

You’d be joining an impressive Front End community where you can make your ideas heard. We want you to be empowered to discover new things and to experiment - to help you do this:

  • We hold a fortnightly “Front End Community of Practice” within OVO to discuss challenges we are facing, new frameworks and show-and-tell personal projects.
  • Tech time: ‘lightning’ talks on interesting tech topics. Recent discussions have included using Parcel in projects, looking at styled components vs CSS Modules and a NextJS demo. We also run a tech blog.
  • Across slack channels and via internal meet-ups we promote collaboration, knowledge transferring and if something isn’t working: ‘fail fast’ so that we can share learning from our mistakes across all our teams -  giving us much more time to work on the cool stuff.
  • We attend a number of tech conferences then summarise the agenda to discuss new ideas internally and learnt from them.
  • We love to pair program.
