BEST Energy
( ) is a global leader in the energy monitoring and
management sector. Our products are used in over 75 countries.

Want to
revolutionise the energy management sector and build industry-leading
technology? Our flagship product, the Eniscope, is already used in
thousands of electrical installations. It is used to monitor the energy
consumption in retail and industrial applications and pours gigabytes of
data into our cloud platform. 

We need to make Eniscope connect to even
more meter types (modbus, m-bus), run even faster & more stable, send data
even more reliably to our cloud. We also need to integrate in it the new
line of IoT products we have developed from scratch, “Eniscope Air”, a set
of devices that use LoRa radio to send environmental parameters and receive
commands to/from the Eniscope.

We are looking for a multi-skilled Perl
software engineer with some knowledge (or a keen interest in learning) 
about energy meters, multi-sensor inputs and control. We’re open to both
contract and permanent candidates.

We would also consider contractors;
please specify if you prefer this and your desired rate.

Desired skills:
Should be fully competent Perl programmer with few good years of
experience. Python/PHP/C nice to have but all code is written in Perl right
now. An understanding of how hardware works (e.g. serial comms) it is also
required, because this really is not a web developer job.

A solid working
knowledge of Linux operating systems, including: working from terminal
(command line), vi, filesystem and system resources, processes,
inter-communication methods. Nice to have: optimization, performance
analysis, efficiency and memory usage.

As a software engineer, you'll work
in a constantly evolving environment. The role will cover writing new code,
setting up new systems (hardware and software), debugging existing code,
creating scripts that help in testing systems and to investigate issues. 

Tasks will vary, but will typically involve:
- learning how the current
system works
- writing and testing code, refining and rewriting it as
- writing operational documentation
- participating in technical
discussions and creating technical specifications accordingly
- working
closely with other staff, such as project managers, other developers,
systems analysts and sales and marketing professionals
investigating new
- continually updating technical knowledge and skills by
attending in-house and external courses, reading manuals and accessing new
- providing (remote) support.

Good interpersonal skills that
will fit in this friendly and relaxed Cornish workplace.
