Senior Elixir/Phoenix Software Engineer at Ambue - help improve home energy efficiency! (Remote, UK only)

Hi folks. We’re looking for an Elixir/Phoenix engineer to help make our user’s homes energy efficient.

About us

My name: Daniel Tipping
My position: Co-Founder & CTO
Company name: Ambue
Country: UK
Company info and history:

Ambue is an Oxford-based startup developing technology to help our users make their homes energy efficient. We’re currently a team of 7 with 2 Elixir devs, including one hired from the Elixir Forum! We’re backed by Innovate UK and have been through an accelerator with the Energy Systems Catapult.

20% of CO2 emissions come from domestic property and >£65b will need to be spent upgrading
properties to meet the UK’s Net Zero targets. The government have multiple financial incentives available, but we’ve got a data problem: people don’t know which upgrades to make, they don’t know how to access finance, and they don’t know how to find trusted tradespeople.

We help homeowners collect property data and combine it with our own data to create an accurate energy loss model. We identify the best retrofit solutions for their home and help them through the upgrade process.

We’re looking to work with creative software engineers who care about the environment, want to make a difference, and are happy working independently.

I live in France so it’s not possible, but as someone who would like to do that with my house I was wondering if you would be interested in adapting your code to other countries in the “near” future? There are lots of competing incentives for that in France so it would be a pain to get everything right, but I am sure lots of people would love to have all the information in one place, tailored to their specific house.

Yes, definitely! It’s on our roadmap, but it’s for the “near” future rather than the near future :slight_smile:
