The engineering department is a cross-functional organization with a continuous integration -and delivery approach. We are working on solving everything from our installation crews becoming more effective, stabilising the electricity grid and providing energy-as-a-service products to our customers.
All in all, we are on the front-line regarding optimizing the energy usage to have more clean electricity and counteracting the carbon dioxide emissions.
Our teams consists of people from different countries with different backgrounds, cultures and experiences but what we have in common is our mindset - to use our tech skills to fight climate change and secure a sustainable future
Are you curious about what it's like working within our Engineering department? Let's take a look behind the grid at the team who develops our products to hear more about what they are up to!
What makes our team great is that we work together to solve any issue, we genuinely care about our customers and stakeholders, we are honest, and we have fun together. We are a team of 10 people in different role, from developer and QA to Tech Lead and Technical project lead.
We develop the website using React with Next.js framework and Kontent .ai (headless CMS). Our team collaborate a lot with different teams all around Svea Solar, from the content manager team and CRM team to the sales team who we supply with lead through our calculator. Of course, Search Engine Optimazation and tracking are also included in our responsibilities.
The main focus for the App team is to deliver a high quality digital solar solution for our customers. This means to secure that the Svea Solar App meets our customers needs in order to plan, optimize and follow up their energy procuction and consumption. Regardless if they have Solar panels, Energy contract or an EV Charger. The app is developed in React Native (using Expo), Redux and GraphQL.
"Our core team was asked again to help write something for this section, but all we got back was a bunch of ones and zeroes. We do know that's not because they are lazy, they're just busy building and optimising our most important asset - the core platform.The core team is made up of 9 talented wizards from 7 countries, so talented that they'd make Gandalf the Grey go green with jealousy. And much like the Fellowship of the Ring, they are a varied bunch made up of everyone from project manager, QA to developers.
Although each and everyone has their own set of skills and tons of freedom with responsibility, it's when all their hard work comes together that the true magic happens."
We’re all .NET centric developers but coming from different backgrounds we all have a few extra skills in different areas that complement each other to build a strong and competent team.
We are building a virtual powerplant to support our customers with energy optimization features and creating new energy distribution channels through the aggregation of our customer's solar micro-production sites.
The QA/Test team is a small team, embedded in our product teams. We have all different test backgrounds and are based in different locations. We work a lot with coaching the different teams how to work with test to improve the quality in our products but of course we also support with hands on testing. We are also working with UI and integration test automation to instead of spending time on manual testing focus on the exploratory testing and let the computer perform the regression testing.
We are a small, but bright team of dreamers and doers.
We are curious about technology, empathetic towards other humans and inspired by the challenges ahead. We work in close collaboration with other teams to help our new and existing customers to switch to 100% renewable energy, to optimise their monthly bills by becoming energy self-sufficient and to contribute to the stability and resilience of the energy grid.
For example, we help our users to analyse their solar production and consumption patterns by providing uncomplicated interactive visualisations. By integrating spot-price data we make it easier to optimise the use of energy and, as a result, save money.
