The Position
Do you dream about creating a more sustainable future? At Uplight, we are motivating energy users and providers to accelerate the clean energy ecosystem. We're working with over 90 of the world's leading electric and gas utilities to build the future platform for grid and energy management. Uplight delivers personalized experiences that customers have now come to expect - improving satisfaction, increasing revenue, reducing the cost to serve, and contributing to carbon reduction goals. We are a certified B Corp, enabling us to put our values into action by not only making decisions for the benefit of our shareholders, but also for our customers, environment, employees, and community.
We are seeking a Software Engineer to join our team and help us achieve our ambitious goals for our business and for the planet.
What you get to do:
We are searching for a Software Engineer with expertise in building scalable, data-intensive API services that help people reduce their energy usage and carbon footprint. You'll work within the Platform Analytics team to build and improve our APIs that extract insights out of the vast amount of data we process.
Some examples of the questions that you will get to help answer include: deriving a household's disaggregated energy consumption breakdown, or recommending the most effective action/change that a person could take to reduce their energy bill (and estimating how much it would save them). To answer these types of questions and more, you will work with a great remote-first team of other engineers, data scientists, and product managers located throughout the U.S. and Canada.
You should:
  • Be excited to work with talented, committed people in a fast-paced environment
  • Be passionate about energy consumption and making a difference in the world
  • Be capable of prioritizing your work to adhere to a deliverable schedule and ensure successful delivery that exceeds expectations
  • Be ready, able, and willing to collaborate with a partner or colleague to help solve problems
  • Have a strong eye for detail and quality of your code
  • Not be afraid to dig into hard problems, and enjoy experimenting to come up with simple, pragmatic solutions to solve them
What you bring to Uplight:
  • You are an accomplished developer with 2-5+ years of professional experience
  • Proven experience developing production code in Python (we generally use 3.7+) and solid knowledge of one major web framework such as FastAPI, Flask, or Django
  • Equivalent experience in another language/ecosystem such as Ruby, Java, JS, etc. is also completely fine, as long as you are willing to pick up Python here
  • Experience developing services and APIs on top of medium to large data sets, ideally with both SQL and NoSQL databases (PostgreSQL, BigQuery, Redshift, MongoDB, etc.)
  • Solid understanding of REST design principles
  • Google Cloud Platform, AWS, or other cloud service provider experience (GCP ideal)
  • Understanding of the agile software development lifecycle, including scoping, detailed design, effort estimation, implementation, debugging, maintenance and support
  • Demonstrable knowledge of how to write effective unit and functional tests
  • BS in Computer Science / Engineering, or demonstrable industry experience
Bonus Points:
  • Experience with Apache Airflow, Spark, Databricks or other data engineering tools
  • Experience building data pipelines or ETL/ELT processes
  • Knowledge of Pandas / SciPy / Numpy / SciKitLearn or other Python science libraries
  • Experience with cloud infrastructure automation such as terraform or cloudformation
  • You work on the command line confidently and are familiar with all the goodies that the linux toolkit can provide
  • You are a Git guru and can unwind a nasty rebase gone wrong
What makes working at Uplight amazing:In addition to all the standard medical and dental benefits, that kick in Day 1, we are:
  • Proud to be over 500+ rebels with an important cause by helping to create a more sustainable planet.
  • Committed to the environment, our employees, and our communities
  • Focused on career growth by following defined career ladders
  • Committed to taking our work and mission seriously and.... we love to laugh!

We also provide:
  • 401k program with company matching
  • Medical, vision, and dental insurance
  • Monthly wellness stipend
  • Peer to peer recognition program
  • Management by objectives bonus program
  • Innovative flexible time off policy
  • Exceptionally collaborative and cool office spaces (once we reopen them)

Salary Range: $100,000 to $110,000
In accordance with the Colorado Equal Pay for Equal Work Act, the approximate annual base compensation range is listed above. The actual offer, reflecting the total compensation package and benefits, will be determined by a number of factors including the applicant's experience, knowledge, skills, and abilities, as well as internal equity among our team.
