To do this, you'll need to have the right combination of technical knowledge, leadership and people skills.

Some of your key responsibilities will include:

  • Directing, supporting, and guiding our Engineers day-to-day

  • Creating workforce plans and ensuring efficient execution of engineering plans

  • Leading the system definition of the generic solutions offered to all Invinity customers, detailing system solutions design specifications, selecting critical equipment such as inverters and transformers

  • A background in the development and integration of complex power plant solutions

  • An undergraduate college or university degree in Electrical / Electromechanical Engineering

  • Hands-on experience of CAD design methodologies, product documentation management (PDM) and product configuration management

  • Experience managing Mechanical, Electrical and/or Software engineering teams

Knowledge of CE certification for energy generation and storage machines is an advantage, as is knowledge of ISO 9001 and lean management expertise.

Above all you'll be an engineer at heart - technically inquisitive, someone who is obsessed by "making things work" and solving the tough and complex engineering problems (even if that means learning the stuff you don't know).
