Back-End Developer

Salary Competitive
Equity To be negotiated

Glint Solar is an Oslo based venture capital-funded startup accelerating the growth of solar energy by satellite data and machine learning. We believe that the world needs to increase the amount of solar energy to battle climate change. Land-based solar and increasingly floating solar are part of this solution, which is why we are working hard to build amazing technology for the solar industry. The team’s background includes data science, energy and management consulting.

We are looking for a Back-End developer to help build a scalable and reliable service. Our stack so far includes aiohttp, Google App Engine and Google Cloud Storage, with Python being our main language at the moment. Ideally you have experience with several of the above, but the most important criteria is a willingness and ability to quickly learn new things. As we are a small team, flexibility and being wiling to take on tasks outside main expertise if necessary (e.g. some front-end or ML work) is critical. As an early hire you will have the opportunity to play a key role in shaping our product, our tech stack and our growing tech team.

We believe the following factors make you a good fit:

  • Eager to learn and help where it is needed, if its core development, getting customer feedback or weighing in on strategy.

  • Experience thinking about, and working on, the whole product, from customer experience to data storage and processing pipelines.

  • Enjoy learning from, and teaching your colleagues.

  • A good grasp of maths and statistics.

  • Fluent in English, verbal and written, other languages could be beneficial too. 

You would be working mainly on our core product, taking part in all phases of developing new features, from prototyping to scalable production code.

Working at
Glint Solar

Glint Solar is accelerating the adoption of solar energy by building the world's leading solar screening and analysis software. One of the main headaches for the development of large scale solar is identifying where to build and understanding the specific site conditions - we're tackling this! The world needs to build more renewable energy to combat climate change. We in Glint Solar believe that technology is the solution. We are therefore working effortlessly on building technology for developers of solar energy parks. We started with the very exciting floating solar market as this is one of the fastest growing energy sectors in the world and have since expanded into land based solar as well. We're backed by leading Norwegian and international VCs and private equity. Our HQ is at Aker Brygge in Oslo where our international team works from, but we serve our global customer base with a focus on Europe. We have the culture of a startup with a flat hierarchy, where the idea matters, not who had it. We encourage trying new things, even if it fails. At Glint Solar you will have the freedom to do your best work – and focus your efforts on what *you* are good at. We believe in adapting to our people and their strengths – not the other way around. We back each other up, make sure obstacles are out of the way, and then we GO! And sometimes, quite often, actually, we go do something fun together, like cabin trips, company trips and social events. All with lots of laughter. We consider ourselves very privileged to have smart, curious, and caring colleagues who are working together towards our mission. We are comprised of 17 different people with nine different nationalities and a wide range of diversity of thought. Amongst us you’ll find coffee connoisseurs, map nerds, Mandarin speakers, yoga enthusiasts, foodies, cross-country skiiers, olive farmers, frisbee golfers, colleagues who DJ on the weekend and everything in between – because we value exactly who YOU are. Regardless of what you enjoy and value outside of work, there’s a place for you in Glint Solar.
