About Amber

Amber is a new way to buy power, designed for a world powered by renewable energy. We give customers direct access to the real-time wholesale electricity price as it varies every 30 minutes, and the technology to shift more of their energy usage to the times when cheaper renewables are available in the grid. It’s a cheaper way to buy power and the fastest way for Australia to reach 100% renewable energy.

We are growing rapidly and have thousands of customers who love what we are doing and a great product that will play a significant role in driving Australia towards a renewable future. We are backed by Australia’s leading VCs (including Square Peg Capital and Main Sequence Ventures), impact-focused investors and individuals, and most recently by Commonwealth Bank and NRMA. We’re now at a critical moment in taking the business to real scale as we disrupt a huge market for the better.

We’re committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace and a great culture of people who love coming to work to build a better world. You’d be a part of a growing team of over 70, with expertise across energy, technology, marketing, and operations.

About the Role

  • Build a balanced and high performing team, through recruiting from a wide range of backgrounds, experience levels, etc
  • Grow the individual capabilities of team members through continuous professional development, training, and performance reviews
  • Cultivate a highly collaborative environment and foster psychological safety
  • Contribute to technical and product strategy, especially where they touch on the capabilities (or gaps) of your team
  • Contribute to scalable and repeatable team processes and documentation (ie onboarding, perf review structures, etc)

About You

Key Requirements

  • At least two years of engineering management experience, OR four years at a tech/team lead level, with a strong interest in people.
  • Strong verbal and written communications skills built on a foundation of empathy for your fellow humans.
  • Enough technical grounding to participate in problem solving and design discussions at all levels of the organisation.
