London, UK
Experience Level
Desired Skills
  • To be able to recognise what needs to be done (and, just as importantly, what doesn't need to be done right now) based on the overall goals of the team and our strategic direction
  • To be able to work in a dynamic environment. Fantastic ideas come from everywhere in Kraken Technologies, so you'll need to be able to spot and harness them. Experience in a fast-paced start-up or scale-up would be a plus
  • To be curious and willing to roll up your sleeves. For example, this might mean learning some development skills; helping to build out and prioritise our tech hiring roadmap; using SQL to gain further understanding of a problem; or even editing some code
  • To have excellent written and verbal communication skills and an ability to interact with people with varying levels of technical knowledge
  • To (ideally) have knowledge of the energy industry, whether that's in the UK or globally
  • You'll work within one of our “super-teams.” These are teams of around 10 developers either aligned to a particular industry (e.g. UK energy) or to a global function such as billing & payments
  • Liaise with tech, operations, our clients and others to identify new features in Kraken that need to be built, enhanced or fixed. You'll spot problems, take ownership and see them through to resolution
  • Gather technical requirements from internal and external stakeholders, define approach and help write pitch documents so developers can hit the ground running and support them during a project
  • Own the backlog of work to support development of our technology. We use Asana to keep track and prioritise what's up next and what's still to-do
  • Help report on progress of projects, new features and your team's roadmap across the wider organisation - this might include maintaining a central view of all global work in your area e.g. Global Financials
  • Help teams that are working on front-line support to quickly resolve issues
  • Contribute to improving the Product Team, including thinking strategically and supporting other team members
