Desired Skills
  • The passion to create something amazing, and the mindset to learn and grow with the company
  • As this is a very early-stage project, you'll need to be the type of person that enjoys building something from new, can problem solve independently, and enjoy the fun but sometimes slightly messy start-up approach

  • Familiarity with continuous integration and continuous deployment
  • Be someone who enjoys interacting with other people - you'll need to regularly chat with the wider team to agree how to take the product forwards
  • Wondering what the salary for this role is? Just ask us! On a call with one of our recruiters it's something we always cover as we genuinely want to match your experience with the correct salary. The reason why we don't advertise is because we honestly have a degree of flexibility and would never want salary to be a reason why someone doesn't apply to Octopus - what's more important to us is finding the right octofit!
  • Octopus Energy is a unique culture. An organisation where people learn, decide, and build quicker. Where people work with autonomy, alongside a wide range of amazing co-owners, on projects that break new ground. We want your hard work to be rewarded with perks you actually care about!
