About the Job

Are you an experienced software engineer looking to make an impact on a dynamic team? Opower, now a part of the Utilities Global Business Unit of Oracle, is looking for an engineer to join our team in Arlington, Virginia who wants to continue to expand their core skill set through exposure to a broad set of current technologies. At Oracle, our Software Engineers are the foundation of our top-notch Engineering organization.

What do we do? We're applying cutting edge computer science to one of humanity's greatest challenges: Energy. Our utility customers around the world give us energy usage data for tens of millions of their customers which we then analyze and aggregate using the latest software technologies to motivate consumers to use less energy. We use the right tools for each element of our broad solution set so our engineers get exposure to everything from Java Spring to Ruby on Rails, from Hadoop to MySQL to ElasticSearch, from massive batch processes to rich web apps.


Our senior engineers lead by example and are experts in the code they write. Your responsibilities will include reviewing design documents, doing code reviews and teaching other junior engineers about best practices. You should understand large scale applications with multi-threaded architectures.

You should be efficient in writing Java code and be very comfortable with database designs. You like to do whiteboard design questions and excited about solving complicated problems.

About You

  • You are experienced with scrum, issue tracking, source code management, and continuous integration.

  • You are constantly thinking about ways to improve the technology in the organization.
  • Experience with Spring Batch, Ruby on Rails, Hadoop, and MySQL is a bonus, but not required.
