About the role

The Virtual Power Plant is a complex, cloud based automated system for exercising real-time control over large numbers of heterogeneous devices for the purposes of optimising electricity demand and management.

The Front End Developer plays a key role developing and maintaining the Front End applications that support Future Energy programs including Connect, Virtual Power Plant and Jindabyne data and analytics.

  • Maintain and improve the quality and performance of jobs in our production environment. This may include ensuring we have the right tools and processes in place to identify defects and bottlenecks early and educating our developers to ensure best practices are followed and pre-deployment requirements are clear.
  • Build and maintain a best in class deployment process by utilising CI/CD tooling and practices.
  • Respond to incidents, including out of hours where required. Note that on-call support is via a 24x7 rotating roster, however after hours call outs are typically infrequent.

About you
