Exnaton

Software Engineer for Renewable Energy Application

Exnaton is a spinoff company of ETH Zurich which offers software for renewable energy to energy companies. Our software enables energy providers to set up energy communities in their distribution areas. Users of our software can track their energy consumption and ´ buy renewable energy from their neighbors, which makes investing in the energy transition simple and fun! Our software processes smart meter data and computes smart real-time prices for locally produced energy which make renewable energy financially more attractive. End-users receive an app that maps the sources of their energy, making their electricity consumption more understandable.

Our team consists of a diverse mix of engineers and business developers and we are all motivated to use technology to create a sustainable impact in our society. Our company will be growing in the next months and we are looking for motivated and passionate people to complement our team.

We operate a stack with a backend built in a strict micro-services pattern with polyglot services written in Python and TypeScript. Technologies are chosen to fit the purpose (e.g. time series, relational, no-sql databases). All deployments rely on Helm and run on platform-agnostic Kubernetes clusters. Our frontend is a Vue SPA (TypeScript) with a continuously extending feature set.

The job can potentially performed remotely in Switzerland/EU/EFTA states.
