About You

Above all, we want someone who is “smart and gets
things done”. That being said, we have a few very small requirements
that we’d like you to meet before applying:
You should
  • have at least 1 year of professional experience
  • have professional experience with Java
  • know enough SQL to create outer joins
  • know when to use a shell script and when to use the Abstract Factory pattern
  • be able to succeed in a fast-paced environment without significant micro-management
Technologies we use
We don’t need you to be an expert in any of these, nor do you need any
particular experience in these technologies. But, we do use them quite a
bit, so anything you know is a good thing.
  • Spring
  • Hibernate
  • MySQL
  • Maven
  • Subversion
About the Company
OPOWER is an energy efficiency and smart-grid
software company. Our products encourage energy efficiency by empowering
people to make better decisions about the ways they use energy every
day. With industry-leading data analytics and a unique approach to
customer engagement, we’re changing the way the world understands
personal energy consumption, and helping more than 40
utilities—including 8 of the US’s 10 largest—achieve unprecedented,
sustainable energy savings in tens of millions of households.
Founded in 2007, OPOWER has offices in Arlington,
Virginia, and San Francisco, California. Our rapidly expanding team
includes software engineers, product specialists, behavioral scientists,
statisticians, marketing experts, infographic designers, and efficiency
advocates.
In April 2010, President Obama gave his national
policy speech on green job creation from our office in the Washington,
DC area. In September of 2010, we were named a Technology Pioneer by the
World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, for creating “innovations
that will have a critical impact on the future of business and society.”
By the end of 2011, the energy we save will equal a third of the power
produced by the entire US solar industry, and have the impact of
effectively removing 50,000 homes from the grid.
