Carbon Co-op (https://carbon.coop) is an award-winning and fast-growing not- for-profit social enterprise based in Greater Manchester, UK. We pilot innovative low carbon projects and provide support services to our householder members and the wider community.
The energy systems team is an interdisciplinary team within Carbon Co-op which develops and operates services which enable our householder members to make the most of their home energy systems by integrating things like solar PV, EV charging, electric heating, and battery storage.
We use Python based software across the stack and modern development practices such as test driven development and continuous integration and deployment. This is an exciting chance to work on cutting-edge and innovative energy technology services.
We’re looking for a Software Engineer to support development and pre- commercial testing of our existing Home Energy Management System (HEMS) and integration of this with other hardware and software systems as part of a new EU Horizon 2020 innovation project on smart building systems.
This will involve:
There will be opportunities to work in other areas such as our Django-based Demand Response Management System (DRMS) and core business systems.
We’re looking for someone who can work between 0.8 and 1 FTE. A lot of the team at Carbon Co-op work flexibly between 3 and 5 days a week and we’re flexible around when the work is done (as long as it fits the business need). Please tell us what work commitment you are looking for. This can vary over time if agreed with the rest of the team.
We support remote working (and did so before COVID made it cool!). Many of our software developers currently work remotely most of the time. Please let us know if this is something you’re interested in when you apply.
