from today

Enpal is Germany's first GreenTech unicorn and the fastest-growing energy company in Europe.  
We are building the largest renewable community in Europe and tackling the greatest challenge of our generation - climate change. 
We simplify providing green energy for our customers by providing a fully integrated solution with solar systems, heat pump, batteries, and home management system. In addition to contributing to a worthwhile cause, our customers directly benefit from reduced energy bills. 

Your duties

As a Staff Engineer you will be solving complex technical problems impacting thousands of customers. Examples of the problems we are working on: building real-time systems for operating energy devices, introducing new product lines in our home energy management system, implementing tooling for a multi-channel sales, or scaling and operating cloud infrastructure by introducing a shared Kubernetes cluster in Azure. 

Staff Engineers at Enpal thrive while providing direction and setting the bar for quality for technical problem solving. They are hands-on role models driving impact with delivery and architecture. They excel at taking ownership of complex projects and drive impact across multiple teams and domains. 

We are looking for proactive engineers that will make the lives of our customers and Enpal itself better. 

Join us to develop your professional skills, take part in the energy revolution, and let us take ownership of the sustainable change we want to see in the world together! We are looking forward to your application. 


At Enpal, you would be 

  • building software. We are serious about delivering incremental value in each iteration, and we celebrate when we improve people's experience with our solution, make an impact towards our climate goals. 
  • stability driving architecture and technical vision. We are fusing old and new technologies; cloud-native microservices, IoT applications, a Salesforce backbone, an event-driven architecture. This means we analyze new requirements critically to see which moving parts would have to change, explore opportunities to solve organization-spanning challenges with elegant architectural solutions. 
  • growing and learning. Do you know all there is to know about Kafka or are you experienced on graceful degradation? We’d love to learn from your knowledge. Feel like you're behind on test-driven development in React, is Terraform new to you? We’ll make sure you grow through our knowledge. 
  • improving developer tooling. Nobody wants to stay up until midnight to deploy new solutions, or run the same regression tests manually day in, day out. We're about improving, automating as much as we can including load tests and vulnerability scans. 
  • steering for empathy and understanding. Only when we comprehend what the market needs we can create solutions that truly address underlying challenges. Ask critical questions and listen to operations, craftspeople, sales - there are so many stakeholders and users to get input from, and balancing their needs leads to the best solutions.
