We always try to go that little bit further, so we deliver the best solution for our customers – this is really important to us.
A little bit about you:
We are looking for highly motivated expert problem solvers with experience and indepth knowledge of items listed above to help us work on transitioning power systems towards renewable generation across the world. You should have an electrical engineering degree with a specialism in power systems, or you should be able to demonstrate that you have gained equivalent experience in the power system analysis field.
The main 8 qualities we are looking for in our candidates include the following: coding ability (Python is a bonus!), logical thinking, ability to break a complex problem into simple sub-tasks, power system knowledge, adept at learning new simulation software packages, attention to detail, and the ability to write an awesome report & to interact professionally with our clients.
A little bit about what you get:
We offer a relaxed working environment, job flexibility, a central London location (close to London Bridge, Waterloo, and Elephant & Castle), generous pension, 28 days off (plus bank holidays), health insurance with benefits, discount at the office gym at our current location, and the opportunity to develop highly technical power system knowledge from a really diverse range of projects and clients (plus being part of a growing small business with our lack of ‘red tape’).
What you need to do:
