Flux Federation is a leading technology company known for creating software products and experiences for innovative energy retailers and their customers across the world. We’re the power behind international award-winning energy brand Powershop.
Flux is a team of around 150 software developers, designers, testers and product people based in Wellington, Auckland, and Birmingham. The Flux platform is used by energy retailers around the world to offer the best multi-channel experience to their customers.
People are at the heart of everything we do. The Flux crew is vital to the success of our platform, our products and our company. They’re what makes Flux, well, Flux. We work together to discover new ways people can experience energy, sharing our knowledge and expertise with each other to truly build and design an energy experience like no other.

Who we’re looking for
An engineering leader who's shown that they can drive technology change across a large software business. You’re a proven strategist who has established roadmaps for significant technology changes while also not being afraid to pull up your sleeves to get it delivered. You’ll have extensive experience across the following:
Guiding software engineers towards building the right solution to the problem at hand
Re-architecting established products towards API-first distributed architectures
Evolving engineering practices to improve velocity and quality
You’re not one to shy away from a challenge and have demonstrated the gumption necessary to lead large-scale engineering changes over an extended period of time.
How you’ll work
Reporting directly to the VP Engineering our Principal Engineers are influencers, not managers. They use this influence to ensure our engineers can both understand and contribute to the path forward.
You will evolve our engineering roadmap to ensure our product is architected in a way that continues to support the rapid delivery of new product functionality. A significant part of this role will involve finding ways to re-engineer and decouple our platform towards a distributed architecture.
As a technologist at heart you’ll still be jumping into the detail to validate the path forward and clear roadblocks. However you will not only depend on technology to improve our platform but also drive the adoption of improvements across all of our engineering processes.
What we value at Flux
A commitment to collaboration and open communication.
An ability, desire, and willingness to learn.
Excellent critical thinking skills and curiosity.
Pragmatism in your approach: you won’t always be able to make it perfect.
An ability to challenge the status quo.
