Senior Backend Software Engineer - Grid
Founded in Copenhagen in 2020, Monta is a fast-growing green tech company providing a state-of-the-art software platform for stakeholders in the electrical vehicle (EV) ecosystem: EV drivers, private charge point owners, commercial charge point operators, fleet managers, hardware vendors, grid operators, and many more. At Monta we are value-driven and open and we embrace trust, transparency, passion and impact. We are looking for awesome and motivated people to join our team and help shape our electrical future.
You’ll join the Grid team inside the Charge Point Infrastructure (CPI) division. CPI is responsible for the communication infrastructure of our platform — connecting charge points, the grid, solar panels, and batteries within our platform. In Grid in particular, we focus on utilizing the many charge points on our platform to stabilize the electrical grid and help its transformation from a mostly static one consisting of a few producers and many consumers, to a highly dynamic one with “prosumers” that can both produce and consume electricity.
As our new senior level backend software engineer, you’ll help scale and extend our Grid solution. The foundation has been laid, but we need your help to grow. You’ll work with the Grid team’s Staff Engineer and Product Manager to improve the existing code-base for continued scaling and performance, plan and implement new features, integrate with new partners, systems and devices, fix bugs — and have fun! We work in six week cycles and lean on concepts from ShapeUp and the agile world in how we plan and execute.
We work in a modern microservice architecture where each team has autonomicity over the services they own. We have a flexible and modern continuous integration and deployment pipeline and we deploy often. We review each other’s code and have a flexible mindset while providing common automated solutions to tedious tasks. We think in bounded contexts and value SOLID code. The most important technologies and concepts we use are:
- Kafka and other messaging platforms
- REST-ful json APIs
- MySQL and Redis
- Git, Github and GitOps
- Docker, Kubernetes, ArgoCD and Helm
- OpenTelemetry, Prometheus, Loki and Grafana
Here are some of the other tools we use: IntelliJ and friends, Slack, Notion, Postman, Jira
