Sustainable and affordable energy is more important than ever. aWATTar is the first power supplier in Austria and Germany with a tariff that is dynamic on an hourly basis. Since the start of 2022 we are a subsidiary of tado°, one of the leading smart energy companies in Europe.

With our innovative electricity tariffs we create not only new saving opportunities for our customers but also more space for solar and wind power in the grid. We have been awarded the “Greenstar(t)” prize of the Austrian Climate Fund and for some time now also have been disrupting the German market with our innovative offerings. The trend towards electric mobility and electric heat solutions (heat pumps) additionally fuel our growth.

We need additional support for our Engineering Team and are looking for a Mid/Senior Full Stack Software Engineer (m/w/d), to work together with enhancing our modern energy billing system.
