Where in the world of OVO will I be working?

Is this the job for me?

We’re interested in hands on engineers with expertise in at least one programming language – if your experience doesn’t match our stack exactly then don’t worry, we hire based on software engineering talent, not language-specific skillset. Interested in us? We’re interested in you!

We’re keen to meet people with varied backgrounds: the more inclusive we are the better our work will be. We want to build a team which represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills, and we decide employment on the basis of merit and potential.

We understand some people may not apply to jobs unless they tick every box. If you’re excited about joining us and think you have much of what we’re looking for, even if you’re not 100% sure… we’d love to hear from you.
