JOB SUMMARY

Nuvation Energy is looking for a talented, innovative Front-End Software Developer with strong technical expertise, a commitment to the craft of writing high quality code, and team leadership skills. This is a full-time position in our Waterloo Office.

You will be responsible for developing new features for the Operator Interfaces and Engineering Tools used across all of our Battery Management System (BMS) products. These interfaces and tools are used by our customers to configure, operate, and monitor energy storage systems that range in scale from a few kilowatt hours to many megawatt hours in size.

Initially, this role is focused on front-end development using React and TypeScript. However, there is ample opportunity to do work spanning all levels of the software stack including front-end, core libraries and business logic, as well as back-end APIs. Our primary technology stack is TypeScript, Node.js, and React, although we use a broad array of other technologies to deliver our products. The software you develop may be deployed inside of one of our embedded control products, as a stand-alone browser-based application, or as a cloud service.

The ideal candidate has demonstrated experience working with multi-discipline teams building and testing web applications, has sound knowledge of software engineering practices, and is comfortable in a highly collaborative environment. Proven experience is a must, but so are technical creativity and the ability to learn.

If you are looking for constant challenges on a wide variety of design problems, this is the job for you.

WHAT DOES NUVATION ENERGY DO?

Nuvation Energy is committed to the adoption of energy storage in every aspect of power generation and consumption. Our fourth-generation battery management system (BMS) represents over a decade of product innovation and is currently used in over 100 energy storage projects worldwide. Our BMS has been used to electrify RVsplanes, and ships. It’s been used to power EV charging stationsbuildings, and islands.

In addition to offering a superior BMS, our engineering team provides a range of energy storage system development services, including remote and on-site system integration support for our battery management systems.

WHO IS NUVATION ENERGY?

At Nuvation, we are engineers to the core – it is our culture and we engage in it as a team sport. We enjoy gnarly challenges and see creative opportunities, where others see problems. We specialize in the ridiculous and emphatically reject the limitations of conventional wisdom.

We are huge proponents of ‘dogfooding’ – i.e. using what we build. In our spare-time we stop engineering for fun and money, and start engineering for fun alone. We built e-Rex (an electric car), BESSIE (an EV charging station), a Robot Bartender, and other arguably useful inventions that require an incredible amount of engineering expertise to make them work!

We are fanatical pragmatists who revere logic, process, repeatability, and methodology. You will be working with highly competent team members who are wired to respond to challenges with innovation. We’re very comfortable skating on the bleeding-edge of technology.

Our business fuels our culture, and our culture fuels our business. We love the work that we do and enjoy working with each other every day.

If this sounds like an environment where you can thrive, come join us!
