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 for our Customer Experience team you will drive the architecture and implementation of next-generation tools and experiences for our customers and colleagues. You will be working on the cutting edge of energy innovation with a passionate group of developers and designers. Our ideal candidate will have a proven track record of creating and maintaining complex web apps and delivering high-quality software in a fast-paced environment.

While this role requires strong architectural abilities, you will also be writing code and providing support and mentorship to our less experienced developers daily. In addition to day-to-day work on our front-end systems, you will also play a role in defining platform wide architecture, identifying technical debt and coordinating cross-team initiatives. You will report into our Engineering Manager.


You will have:

  • A commitment to quality and good testing practises.
  • The ability to think holistically about system design across front end and back end.
  • Proven experience mentoring more junior developers.
  • The ability to communicate effectively with stakeholders & developers.

Technically proficient with:

  • HTML, CSS and JavaScript.
  • React / Redux (or similar front end frameworks and state management).
  • Back end JavaScript development using Node.
  • Python
  • Kubernetes / container-based deployments.

We would love to see from you: 

  • Passion and commitment towards team leadership.
  • Experience building responsive, user-friendly web-apps.
  • Passion for sustainability energy and/or experience within the industry.
