Python/Full-Stack | UtilityAPI.com | Oakland, CA | ONSITE | Solar Job

=Description=

We are a white-label SaaS that is used by solar and energy efficiency companies to collect their customer's utility bill and usage data automatically. We write scripts that collect data from utilities, and these scripts can break unexpectedly when utilities change their interfaces, so being able to update them quickly is important. You will be working in our office at the SfunCube in downtown Oakland alongside me and our other two software engineers. Our codebase is well organized, documented, and tested.

=Jobs=

* Full-Stack Engineer - You will be writing application code and helping maintain/optimize/scale the stack. At least 6 years of Python and Linux sysadmin experience required.

* Python Developer - You will be writing tools, scripts, and libraries that collect/parse utility data (pdfs, html, xml, csv, etc.) from utilities. At least 1 year of Python experience required.

=How To Apply=

Email me, Daniel Roesler, a cover letter and a PGP-encrypted pdf resume. Please include links to your github, bitbucket, or personal side project website (for reference, mine is daylightpirates.org). You must already be able to work in the U.S.

=For Solar Skeptics=

In the last few years, the solar industry reached "grid parity", which means that the unsubsidized installed cost is now cheaper than buying power from the grid. That's why this industry is the fastest growing industry in the country. This isn't some subsidy-dependent industry anymore. We work hard and we make real money (while conveniently also saving the planet).
