About Recoy

At Recoy our goal is to accelerate the energy transition and help overcome it’s largest hurdle: how to integrate cheap, but highly variable solar and wind energy production into a reliable energy system?

We like to think out-of-the box and develop smart energy solutions that support our customers to reduce their energy costs and maximize the value of their energy flexibility. We develop software that allows flexible assets such as electrical buses, e-trucks, MW-scale electric boilers and stationary batteries to be controlled in a smart way by reacting to fluctuations in the electricity markets or predictions of the production of solar and wind energy. This enables energy-intensive companies to save costs by using energy when prices are low or even negative and by making better use of and expanding the existing energy flexibility. As a result, we help to keep the electricity grid in balance and sustainable energy sources such as solar and wind energy are better integrated into the energy system. We are currently operating and further developing our ‘Real-Time Optimization Platform’, a cloud-based solution that will be key in accomplishing our goals. It combines the variation in energy prices and production with the customers’ flexibility in energy storage and consumption. By using forecasting models and optimization techniques we can exercise optimal real-time control of flexible energy assets in combination with on-site solar panels and wind turbines.

Our Culture

Recoy is a fast growing company with an informal culture where we solve tangible problems. We strive for true collaboration, where we always help each other in our efforts to deliver the best result for our customers.

This means that you will quickly learn about all other aspects of Recoy, and of course our customers. It also means that we regularly pair up and aim to standardize how we work. That makes it much easier to work together and help each other when needed. Although we mostly work from home in COVID times, we are always looking forward to meeting face-to-face again and share a good walk, lunch, or drinks.

About the job

We are looking for a talented software engineer who can help build the platform, using modern cloud concepts that will allow scaling in a cost-effective way. We try to keep things lean and simple, and leverage on the capabilities of the cloud such as serverless functions and database as a service.

You will work together daily with the software architect, product owner, and energy consultants, to help decide on technical and functional decisions for the platform.

The core tools and technologies that we currently use are:

  • .Net Core & Python
  • AWS suite: EventBridge, Lambda, RDS (SQL Server)
  • Git (Trunk Based Development)

We offer you a full-time job (0.8 to 1.0 FTE), working partly from home, and partly in our Amsterdam office. You would become part of a start-up adventure, and work with highly motivated, energetic, and experienced colleagues.

About You

You are a curious-minded individual, eager to learn and share ideas. You have excellent analytical skills and take pride in developing high quality code. You value success of the team over personal success and are comfortable adopting a shared way of working. You have a passion for the energy transition and the motivation to make a difference. Your background would ideally cover:

  • A Master’s degree or PhD in Computer Science, Mathematics or a related field
  • 3 years or more working experience as a C# developer
  • Experience with event-driven cloud architecture
  • Experience with test-driven development
  • Nice to have: experience with (low-code) UI development
  • Experience in consultancy and/or R&D projects is a plus
