Clean Energy for everyone.

Welcome to zolar! We’re on a mission to make solar power accessible to everyone and are proud to enable our customers to use the power of the sun in their own homes while making an active contribution to climate protection.

At zolar, we know that different people are successful in different ways, which is why we offer a hybrid working environment, meaning you can decide how much time you spend in our Berlin office, or how much time you spend working from home.
We strive for sustainability, we are ambitious, honest, and transparent, and we never want to stop learning or growing.

Will you join us in working towards a greener future for everyone?

Your role at zolar

The Tech team at zolar ensures that we create a customer-centric environment and a positive contribution to the climate. Our focus is to develop software that provides and enhances new - and in some cases previously untapped - opportunities for climate action, and generates business value. Each of our development teams take full responsibility for a specific product, independently ensuring that the software is delivered quickly as well as functionally and completely.

Our tech stack at zolar consists of: PHP( Symfony ), MySQL, Kafka for the server side and TypeScript, React, Redux for frontend applications. Our cloud provider of choice is AWS and you might encounter AWS Lambdas, DynamoDB, S3, etc.

Get to know our team's tech stack choices better by having a look at our Zolar Tech Radar that lists our approach to languages and frameworks, platforms, processes and development tools we are looking to adopt or trial further.

Our digital products enable our customers directly, our installer partners or our internal teams to configure, buy, install and operate their solar projects.

As a Typescript Fullstack Engineer (m/f/d) in the Partner Experience Team, you will be designing, building, maintaining and operating a set of user-facing PWA applications, front-end and backend, which help to coordinate our PV installation process. You will be part of a group of teams who provide software products that make it easy for our installers to install and our operations managers to be able to plan and validate the installations.

As Typescript Fullstack Engineer (m/f/d) at zolar, you will be able to apply your software product development skills to make a measurable and almost immediate positive impact to the green energy revolution.

Your role at zolar:

  • Find pragmatic and scalable technical solutions to grow our customer experience (Primarily Installers and PV customers)

  • Deliver reliable, well-tested, scalable and robust software that is easy and reliable to use. Continuously grow and professionalise technology stack, to make your teamwork easier and enable yourself to focus on the real problems, not repeating solutions.

  • Contribute to software engineering practices across the company

  • Work side-by-side with product managers, designers, your team members and your stakeholders to implement and select the best solutions for our customers needs.

  • Support your colleagues to learn and grow by sharing your knowledge and insights openly and humbly.

  • Be ready to learn and grow!

What you will need to bring

  • You have 5+ years of hands-on experience in software development in a team and a good understanding of the software product development lifecycle.

  • You have hands-on experience with different APIs and integration variations for business-related software.

  • You have an excellent understanding of developing PWA applications using React.

  • You understand how to model and design data-centric solutions based on business and technical requirements and you know how to mangle data and data formats around.

  • You’re fluent writing code in TypeScript (React, node.js, AWS Lambda) at senior or midlevel developer level. An understanding of ReactNative is highly beneficial.

  • Some understanding of NoSQL databases (e.g. DynamoDB or other), GraphQL and event bus, authz/n beneficial.

  • You have a good understanding of what makes software systems scalable and what bogs them down.

  • You have experience working with cloud services (AWS) and DevOps practices. Ideally, you have worked with event-based solutions like Kafka.

  • You’re fearless of learning new technologies.

  • You’re awesome in communicating to your co-engineers and business stakeholder alike so they both understand the same about what you’re saying.

  • You’re biased to getting things done, find a good balance between when 80% is enough and when it’s important to deliver 110%.

  • You are familiar with agile development practices (e.g. Scrum, software Kanban, TDD, BDD, Pair Programming) and have managed projects before.

  • You’re nice to work with
