Oracle Utilities mission is to help utilities build a clean energy future. Care to join us?

At Oracle's Utilities the Opower organization is applying cutting edge computer science to one of humanity's greatest challenges: Energy. Prior to being acquired by Oracle in 2016, Opower was a successful startup focussed on solving problems for the utility industry. Our utility customers in the U.S. and abroad give us energy usage data for tens of millions of their customers, which we then analyze and aggregate using the latest software technology 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 the Spring Framework to Ruby on Rails, from Hadoop and HBase to MySQL. If you are a top notch engineer looking for a fast paced, high growth place to work while being surrounded by highly skilled, driven peers then Opower is the place for you.

Why Opower?
Apart from the mission, you'll be working with a bunch of extremely smart engineers who are passionate about writing code for the right purpose! We are a utility unto itself, every line of code we write helps utilities save (nay: generate) kWhs of electricity. We're also a fun bunch: Friday lunches, Kegerator, dogs in the office, and the list goes on. Our products are Software-As-A-Service, what that means is, you'll get opportunities to work on industry's leading continuously delivered micro services technologies.
About the Rates Team The Rates team is an end-to-end agile scrum team, developing a Rates engine to help Opower employ utility billing and usage data to drive customer engagement and energy efficiency. Our tools enable Opower to deliver deep, personalized energy insights to end customers and help utilities build a clean energy future.
