The Company

They started out by introducing reliable, clean, electricity to people living in some of the most remote places on earth with their IoT devices - this has been life changing for those previously struggling without.

Noting that due to energy theft by the likes of huge corporate organisations (and even those in politics/positions of power) the access to electricity was becoming increasingly scarce and expensive, they decided to add to their offering.

Their new product, an advanced IoT platform that helps stop energy theft in the off-grid sectors of Africa and South East Asia has been combating this problem. Their policing technologies have allowed villages to triple the time they have electricity which has had a monumental impact on their businesses, education system, and quality of life.

The work you do will have a positive influence not only on your team, but to the lives of people across the world. This really is tech with purpose.

HQ'd in Manchester you can work fully remote - if you can make it in every 6-8 weeks for meeting that would be great but not a deal breaker.

Tech Stack: Python, Django, Node, Rust, AWS, Terraform, Docker

We're looking for a mix of the following:

  • Strong Python and Django experience
  • Experience using AWS (Azure or GCP also considered)
  • Experience working in an Agile environment
  • Desire to learn new things
  • Strong communication skills

It's a bonus if you have experience with Rust but not a requirement. This is the perfect place to showcase your skills and learn new ones.

What's on offer?

  • Salary up to £80k
  • Fully remote or hybrid working
  • Flexible hours
  • Funded accreditations/ certifications
  • Strong bonus

Our clients


I have had dealings with the majority of recruitment agencies in this country and beyond. He really stands out from the crowd and the IT industry would benefit from more people like him.

Software Developer – Glasgow

It was a breath of fresh air – She is professional and approachable and will be there to help you every step of the way. Other recruiters give you the hard sell and the ‘best friend routine’ to get you on board and then just leave you guessing, but not here… She’s the real deal

Solutions Architect – Glasgow

He is the most honest, thorough and experienced recruitment consultant I have ever dealt with. If he can’t help you, he’ll tell you rather than spinning a yarn and putting you forward for jobs that aren’t suitable.

Technical Author – Edinburgh

She was friendly, communicative and informative, talked me through the process and gave me good advice at every stage.

Software Engineer – Manchester

I’ve never written a recommendation for a recruiter before, so it must show how impressed I am!

Software Developer – Northampton

Never have a I met a recruiter like him, who embeds himself in the community so thoroughly in a way that could only be genuine. From our conversations, he has shown an understanding of the industry I would expect from a local CTO.

MI Analyst – Bolton

He stood out in a world of poorly informed, unreliable and frankly annoying recruiters as a breath of fresh air.

Data Scientist – Manchester

He goes out of his way to ensure you are prepared for your interview and I particularly appreciated his professional no nonsense approach to working with me to find a new position.

Infrastructure Architect – Glasgow

Compared to other recruiters I have worked with she seemed genuinely interested in helping me with my job search rather than just fulfilling quotas.

Software Developer – Lincoln

A friend looking after me, that’s how I felt. His friendly character made the whole process way easier and enjoyable, he also managed to get me one of the most interesting work opportunities. I’m really glad our paths have crossed.

Software Engineer - Edinburgh

I can say with total sincerity I’ve never dealt with a more professional, knowledgeable and personable recruitment firm in fifteen years of contracting. They helped my wife and I relocate to Edinburgh with our five month old son and it’s in no small part to their tips and recommendations that we’ve settled in so quickly.

Transformation Consultant – Leeds

Equal parts friendly and professional, never once coming across as simply going through the motions and made the whole thing as painless as possible for all parties

Software Developer – Glasgow

She even was able to help get a firmer offer as I was offered two roles on the same day. I felt she went over and above to get the best offer she could for me without selling myself short.

QA Engineer – Glasgow

Absolutely fantastic throughout my interview process, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! First of all, he is an absolutely brilliant communicator and extremely reliable. On top of all of his brilliant recruitment skills, it was amazing to see how genuinely excited he was for me when I received my offer. This truly conveyed to me how much he cares about his clients.

Software Engineer – Edinburgh

THE BEST test recruiter I’ve had the pleasure of working with, from start to finish. She provided me with training resources and is an organiser and participant in testing events. She really has taken the time to fully understand the testing principles.

Test Analyst – Aberdeen
