At Switchee, we believe that everyone deserves to live in a decent home and that the environments we inhabit have a massive influence on our ability to enjoy life and prosper.
One in five households in the UK live in social housing, a sector with the right values at its core but that has historically struggled to deploy innovations in the home. Many residents still can’t afford to heat their homes, and live in cold, mouldy properties they can’t be proud of.
We believe that radical innovation in internet-connected technology can ensure that every resident, every day, is living in a home that allows them to succeed. That’s why our products are built not just on great technology, but on an understanding of what people want from the space they live in.
This approach led us to reimagine the most mundane household object: the thermostat, into a product that automatically reduces energy bills, looks great, and offers control to those who want it. We are also revolutionising the way social landlords manage their housing stock with an obsessively tailored SaaS property dashboard and handy alerts on things like when the boiler is going to break.
Our goal is to perfect the ultimate connected hub for the social home. It’s going to revolutionise the way residents interact with their homes and landlords manage their properties

You’ll be developing new features across the whole tech stack, while also supporting and maintaining our existing platform as needed. You’ll be working with our Product team, Data Science team and customers to define and implement features that will in turn help us constantly improve the quality of lives for people living in rented homes.
Above all, you’ll care about the code you write and be working within a supportive, agile team who are all passionate about building amazing software solutions with a focus on quality and maintainability.
This will be a diverse, hands-on technical role that touches all layers of our stack, covering:

A test first mentality, experienced writing unit/integration tests. Experience with test automation frameworks and toolsets is a bonus;
Experience working in Agile teams, a self-starter with the ability to work both autonomously and as part of a team;
It would be a plus if you had previously:
Experience with mobile app development languages/frameworks (e.g. React Native, Dart/Flutter);
Worked with distributed event-driven architectures and associated patterns e.g. messaging/queuing;
Worked with serverless architectures and services e.g. AWS Lambda, Azure Functions;
Experience with CI/CD processes, pipelines and associated toolsets (e.g. TeamCity, Azure DevOps, Octopus Deploy). You’ll embrace deployment automation and be familiar with Infrastructure as Code (IaC) approaches (e.g. Terraform, CloudFormation, ARM templates);
Experience with user and api authentication protocols including OpenID Connect/OAuth 2.0/SAML;
We look for people who share our values and can add to our culture. Values are shared beliefs that guide our decision-making, and culture is how we function as a group and how we live our values as individuals.

You are biased towards action and you’re happiest when you’re “getting stuff done”.
You’re open, positive and straightforward. You’re not afraid to stand up for your convictions, even when it’s hard to do so.
