Full job description

About The Role

Ecotricity, the UK’s first true green energy provider, has a strong internal team supporting and developing solutions across multiple mission critical platforms including Databricks on AWS, SQL, Power BI and other cloud centric data solutions. This technical hands-on role, of Data Engineer, will contribute to our delivery of projects, BAU, and helping Ecotricity become more efficient by leveraging our data.


  • Take ownership for delivering all asks made of you on time and to specification.
  • Build strong relationships with key stakeholders outside the department.
  • Be responsible for data quality and ensuring problems are resolved swiftly.
  • Identify and seek out technical debt, aiming to reduce this at each opportunity.
  • Contribute to organisational awareness of technical best practice.
  • Overall responsibility for ensuring that faults are resolved swiftly, and background processes are robust and actively monitored.
  • Seek day to day opportunities to upskill and cross train with your peers.

About the team

The Ecotricity Technology department is a friendly team, with a strong focus on getting results, with everyone committed to delivering both individually and as part of the group/project.

We have a training programme in place to further advance your skills. Dedicated time for training is planned in our workloads. Training and certifications in Databricks are paid for by the company.

We’re proud to be an ethical company, and this naturally attracts ethical people, making for a good safe working environment and a team that works and wins together. We also have a competitive benefits package and chose to invest in our people whenever we can.

About You

You will have considerable technical experience and a passion for developing data solutions. Handling data in any format, data modelling and ETL processes will all come naturally to you. You will have a demonstrable technical skillset as engineering skills are paramount to this role. Knowledge of the Energy industry would be useful, but not necessary.

You will be comfortable working with project managers and product owners, keeping stakeholders and management continually informed, and presenting and demoing solutions. You will have good communication skills and can adjust to each type of audience.

We will actively support you, but as a potentially remote role you should be self motivated, delivery driven, and not need to be led. You should strive for best practice and technical excellence and be a person that actively looks for continual improvement opportunities.

Flexibility statement

Ecotricity is Britain’s greenest energy company. When we started back in 1995, we were the first company in the world to provide a new kind of electricity- the green kind.

Our mission was, and remains, to change the way energy is made and used in Britain- by replacing fossil fuels with clean, renewable energy.

We don’t just supply green energy, we use the money from our customers’ bills to make it ourselves too- we build windmills and sun parks in Britain. We call this ‘bills in to mills’. In 2021, we started work on building two new solar parks, and now, in 2024, we’re bringing geothermal energy to our customers’ fuel mix, a first in the UK. We’re also developing green gas mills which will generate 100% green gas from a source that we will never run out of- grass.

We don’t just focus on energy though- we built Electric Highways, Britain’s leading network of electric vehicle charging points, we helped Forest Green Rovers become the greenest football club in the world, and, in partnership with RSPB, we launched Britain’s greenest mobile phone service, Ecotalk.

Ecotricity is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to providing equality for all.
