Job Description

Who we are:

Arcadia is the technology company empowering energy innovators and consumers to fight the climate crisis. Our software and APIs are revolutionizing an industry held back by outdated systems and institutions by creating unprecedented access to the data and clean energy needed to make a decarbonized energy grid possible.

In 2014, Arcadia set out on its mission to break the fossil fuel monopoly and since then we have been knocking down the institutional barriers to unlock decarbonization.  To date, we have connected hundreds of thousands of consumers and small businesses with high-quality clean energy options. Fast forward to today, and now, we’re thinking even bigger.  We have launched Arc, an industry-defining SaaS platform that empowers developers and energy innovators to deliver their own custom, personalized energy experiences, accelerating the transformation of the industry from an analog energy system into a digitized information network.

Tackling one of the world’s biggest challenges requires out-of-the-box thinking & diverse perspectives. We’re building a team of individuals from different backgrounds, industries, & educational experiences. If you share our passion for ushering in the era of the clean electron, we look forward to learning what you would uniquely bring to Arcadia!

What we’re looking for:

We are seeking a thoughtful and driven Engineering Manager to grow, organize, and coach 5-7 engineers responsible for building mission-critical products & services. The right candidate will champion team members – removing roadblocks, advocating for their needs, and enabling their personal/professional growth & development – while leading them to continuously navigate complex engineering problems, architect scalable solutions, and deliver significant software into production. Our teams write software to expand renewable energy access to millions of households across the country. If you’re as excited about having an impact on this effort and the lives and careers of the people who build it, we encourage you to apply.

Our core stack includes several Ruby on Rails apps, a GraphQL service layer, and a number of React clients. We also have a data pipeline that relies heavily on AWS Lambdas running Python. Our infrastructure is based on Kubernetes running on AWS.

The ideal candidate is someone who wants to influence how our team builds and stays relevant, and who wants to work in a collaborative environment with engineers on a high-morale, tightly-knit team. Our engineering values are deeply ingrained in our culture– you can read more about them here.

Arcadia is headquartered in Washington, DC, and open to fully remote candidates.
