Frontend Developer

Bring your energy to OVO

We’re looking for the most innovative people in tech to work for an energy company like no other. The Sunday Times recently put OVO at number 20 on their list of the best companies to work for.

OVO’s been doing things differently since day one

We were the first energy supplier to let Pay As You Go customers top up on their phones. And the first to show people their electricity and gas usage in real time. We were even the first to release an Apple Watch app. We’ve been featured in Wired magazine for developing software that shatters the status quo.

We’re just getting started

We need your ideas, expertise and know-how so we can shake things up even more. The challenges never stop at OVO. Mainly because we’re always looking for the next one. Invent. Create. Innovate. Repeat. We believe in the power of technology. And we need the best people out there to spot problems — then solve them.

The goal is to develop, test, and release software that scales. Quickly and reliably. Our hand-picked team of software engineers are making a real impact. And you could be one of them.
