The Role

The Sales Director is a sales hunting machine, with a focus on building and nurturing successful new relationships with large commercial, institutional, and industrial customers. Our product is proven and tested and we are moving from startup stage to significant (and rapid) growth stage. We’re looking for an evangelical, process-oriented salesperson who believes in our mission.

Sales Associate

US - Boston, New York, Mid-Atlantic, Chicago, St. Louis, Texas, California
International - Ontario, Alberta, UK, Germany, Japan, Australia, South Africa, Brazil, Middle East

The Role

The Sales Associate is the rocket fuel that makes the sales director even more productive by cold calling on prospective customers, evangelizing Voltus's simple value proposition, and setting meetings that the sales director closes on. If you love to sell, or if you've always thought it would be a great career track, there is no better place to learn how to be a world-class salesperson than in the Voltus sales associate development program. Bring your passion for connecting with people and your love for energy solutions together at Voltus. 

Key Responsibilities

  • Cold call prospective customers

  • Evangelize the Voltus value proposition

  • Set meetings for sales directors

Engineering

Full Stack Engineer

The Role

Voltus is looking for a Full Stack Engineer to build applications and services that leverage our growing stash of energy data. You’re very comfortable writing a React app and implementing theAPI that serves it. You’re also happy writing the backend service that feeds the API. You can implement beautiful customer-facing product and ugly-functional internal tools and have the judgment to know which to build when. You are bright, gritty, and good, and you want to work with others like you.

Key Responsibilities

  • Develop the application and API layers for customer-facing and internal tools to process and understand our ever-growing pile of electricity demand data and market intelligence

  • Help build the outermost layer of the Voltus network, interfacing to a wide variety of electric industry partners

  • Build reusable frontend components and thoughtful APIs

  • Implement and follow engineering best practices, including unit tests and continuous integration

  • Work independently and thoughtfully allocate time among projects

Technologies you’re an expert in:

React, Javascript, ES2015+, SCSS/LESS, Webpack, Flask/Django

Some technologies we use:

  • Python, Javascript, Go, Rust

  • Postgres, Redis, S3, Kafka, InfluxDB

  • AWS, Docker, Nomad, Terraform

  • React, Flask, Scrapy

Please e-mail your interest to engineering+jobs@voltus.co.

Backend Engineer

The Role

Voltus is looking for an experienced backend engineer to help us transform a diverse network of distributed energy resources into reliable powerplants. The thought of building out integrations with different components of the North American electric grid is exciting. You know how to write a beautiful API—and you know how to shim an ugly one. Anyone can integrate to a webhook, but it takes a pro to ingest data over SCADA. Like all of your Voltus teammates, you are bright, gritty, and good.

Key Responsibilities

  • Develop the application and API layers for customer-facing and internal tools to process our ever-growing pile of electricity demand data and market intelligence
  • Build creative shims to legacy systems—everyone loves a clean API, but not everyone can scrape an ActiveX application from 1997
  • Process, clean, validate, and present data from sensor to customer dashboard in real-time (no sweat!)
  • How can we make a few dozen generators, spread over a few hundred square miles and connected by cell modem, behave like a single powerplant with a ten-minute start time? Help solve this and other crazy highly reliable infrastructure problems.

Technologies we use:

  • Python, Javascript, Go, Lua
  • Postgres, Redis, S3, Kafka, InfluxDB
  • AWS, Docker
  • React, Flask, Scrapy
  • Pandas, NumPy
