Voltus is looking for an experienced backend engineer to help us transform a diverse network of distributed energy resources into reliable power plants. 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.
The Data Team is chartered with the mission of building robust platforms that enable data-driven insights. Team members have a hand in shaping all things data: from managing our internal storage systems to shepherding the continuous flow of backbone data assets such as real-time telemetry and financial forecast models. They say data is the new oil… at Voltus, data is fueling our way towards a more energy efficient future!
Translating data into decisions is at the core of the Data Science initiative at Voltus. You are comfortable writing Python for analytics, but you take pride in the fact that you can write production code. You are scrappy, finding solutions for data you do not have or inventing methods of accessing data before proper pipelines have been built out. You will have an opportunity to showcase your software prowess, statistical modeling and business acumen as we respond to critical business questions. You are bright, gritty, and good, and you want to work with others like you.
Voltus is a remote first organization.
Voltus creates virtual power plants that meet the world’s changing energy needs, while using less energy. We are looking for a frontend engineering apprentice to move that mission forward.

Apprentices will work with a mentor to develop their code and other professional programming skills. Those who are currently underrepresented in tech are especially encouraged to apply.
At Voltus, you will help build UIs and client-side web applications to help our team of energy market experts manage complex distributed resources in wholesale energy markets. At the same time, you will build apps to make our customers’ lives easier while they get paid for using less energy.
You care deeply about the climate crisis and want to contribute to making change. You are excited to dig into the nitty gritty of the energy industry and make real change to the future of the energy grid. You have a solid coding foundation and are looking to learn more and go further. You are bright, gritty, and good, and you want to work with others like you.
This job is remote, you can work from anywhere.
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 the API 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.
Voltus is looking for an experienced backend engineer to help us bring the next generation of Voltus product to life. You’ll build tools that help us bring our growing stash of energy data to life, tools that let us better communicate with our customers, and tools that allow our sales team to make the best possible proposals, to just name a few. You’ll work closely with our Product team to define and scope projects, and you’ll work closely with our frontend engineers and designers to make our applications come to life. You’re interested in diving into the detailed world of the energy industry and would jump at the opportunity to turn that knowledge into beautiful, performant applications.

Are you interested in building the technical foundation of the worldwide transition to clean energy? Do you enjoy working with a highly motivated and talented team to deliver mission critical software? Voltus is growing our Site Reliability Engineering team to help deploy, manage, troubleshoot, and enhance our Platform and tools for internal and external customers.
As a Site Reliability Engineer, you will be responsible for deploying and maintaining our core Platform, which consists of Hashicorp’s Nomad, Consul, and Vault systems in AWS. In addition, you will help manage and maintain our monitoring systems, which currently include Prometheus and Datadog.
You will build innovative automated solutions and tools to help debug and resolve problems in production and prevent them from recurring. Further, you will proactively seek out system weaknesses and find ways to fix them before they cause production issues using monitoring data, logs, and watching trends.
Are you interested in building the technical foundation of the worldwide transition to clean energy? Do you care deeply about systems engineering? Please join us on the infrastructure team, which deals with the nuts and bolts of supporting an energy experts-driven transformation of a diverse network of distributed energy resources into a smart grid that is reliable, resilient, and responsive.
We’re looking for someone to make high impact changes in our small, tight-knit team. You’ll be supporting the rest of the engineering team’s infrastructure needs, while building services to support some exotic market requirements. We’ve got containers to host, persistent stores to take care of, and a variety of scaling challenges to tackle as we continue to grow. The infrastructure team develops and manages a microservices stack, along with hundreds of IoT devices installed on-site, and a diverse collection of infrastructure that supports our connections to various utilities and energy markets.

As an engineer on the integrations team, you will be tasked with performing a sort of magic trick. On one hand, you will need to build out services to make our modern, cloud-based infrastructure look like a collection of power plants to more than a dozen wholesale energy markets. This includes real-time telemetry integrations, dispatch integrations, market offer submission, and more. Complicating the problem: every market has a different idea of what a power plant looks like, and we need to accommodate all of them.
On the other hand, you will be responsible for distilling that wide range of market signals and communicating simple instructions to customers. “Communicating” might mean sending a text or email, but it also means toggling on a generator, transferring a factory from grid power to battery power, or integrating with building management APIs to change the climate control setpoints at a few hundred retailers.
We’re looking for someone to make high-impact changes in our small, tight-knit engineering organization. The integrations team sits at the intersection of many internal teams and many external partners. We have the opportunity to do impactful work and we want you to be a part of it.
