About Limejump

Optimising a 100% renewable energy future is our vision.

Limejump is a technology platform that manages a large renewable energy network. Our portfolio delivers clean energy to businesses and homes, using renewables and stored energy when it’s needed to meet demand.

We connect and manage 100% renewable energy through the intelligent control of renewable generators, such as wind turbines and solar panels. We work closely with renewable asset owners, buying their energy and then selling it onto the UK’s grid, giving them simple access to the power market. But, the sun isn’t always shining and the wind isn’t always blowing. We must therefore capture energy for times when there is high demand. By harnessing big data and renewable technology, we accelerate the UK’s transition to net zero carbon emissions.

The Role
As Technical Lead on the Trading Platform team you will architect and build software to interface between Limejump’s platform and the wholesale energy market. By providing reliable data about the energy generation assets we manage, we ensure our traders to be informed to make the right trades. By receiving and storing data on completed trades and the sites they are allocated to, generation assets can be correctly dispatched, the National Grid informed, and the assets owners paid.

You will build solutions to receive, hold and surface the right data to those who need it, whether via web interfaces, RESTful APIs or event-based data streams, leading the design and implementation of software services critical to Limejump’s success.
