Software Engineer

Remote based in Europe (CET/CEST +0 till +2) 

re.alto is a startup originating from the Elia Group, TSO in Belgium and Germany. In 2020, we launched our marketplace to exchange data and services in the energy sector. Currently, we’re working on our Connect product, facilitating data exchange and connectivity for energy devices.

We support B2C players active or willing to be active in energy services in Belgium, Germany and the United Kingdom. No matter what electrical vehicle is charging, what PV system, battery or energy meter is installed, we’re connecting all brands and types, normalising, aggregating, steering and translating into valuable information for the consumers.  

We also connect with optimisation services, facilitate onboarding and consent management processes, and provide dashboarding and alerting. We’re a data backbone for energy services.


What we’re looking for:

re.alto is looking for a Software Engineer to join our lean engineering team. This role involves connecting new devices and creating new features. We take pride in having complete overview of our product delivery, taking responsibility from developing concepts, architecting solutions, taking security and data privacy considerations into account, automatic testing, built-in documentation, building and shipping software. 


Your responsibilities:

  • Building software. There are still a lot of features to build, emerging bugs to squash, devices to connect. We’re serious about delivering value each sprint and celebrate when we can connect a new device type or see a new part of our solution used by customers.
  • Improving developer happiness. Manual testing is a chore. Staying up until midnight to deploy new solutions is too. Integrating automation in our toolchain helps us to deliver software more reliable and quickly. We’re automating regression, load and penetration testing and creating great CI/CD processes. 
  • Educating & learning. Do you know all about Cucumber or are you an expert on zero-downtime redeployment? We’d love to learn more. Feel like you’re behind on Azure Stream Analytics or are timeseries databases not yet in your toolchain? We’ll make sure you grow through our knowledge.
  • Architect & explore. We’re fusing new technologies; IoT, microservices, event-driven architecture, plugins for business-specific extensions in an emerging ecosystem, a novel timeseries database. This means we analyse new requirements critically to see which moving parts would have to change, explore opportunities to solve multiple problems with elegant architectural solutions.
  • Empathise & understand. Only when we comprehend what the market needs we can create solutions that truly address underlying challenges. Ask critical questions and listen to sales, marketing, product, stakeholders and users for input.

Your profile:

We’re looking for a 50% fit with what we ask. The other 50% is the magic you bring to the table. That is, if you’re a strong match on .NET Core or on Azure but you haven’t worked with event-driven architecture yet, that’s not a problem. Similarly, if behaviour-driven development and cloud is your bread and butter, but it just wasn’t with Microsoft’s toolchain, we can work with that.


Hard skills

Some technical components we would like to know your experience with:

    • Language: C# .NET Core 5, Angular/Typescript.
    • Environment: Azure, Functions, Apache Kafka and Event Hubs, API management, DevOps, Infrastructure as Code with ARM, Active Directory.
    • Storage: CosmosDB, SQL & InfluxDB.
    • Et Cetera: Cucumber, Swagger, Git.

Additional skills

    • Fluent in English. 
    • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills. 
    • Excellent communication and collaboration skills.
    • Knowledge of time-series data (preferred). 
    • Knowledge of energy related data (preferred).

Our offer

We’ll provide you with an attractive base salary, in combination with a variable part linked to the company performance.
We’ll provide you with a laptop.
