We enjoy effective partnerships with leading developers, within the green energy industry, and delivery substantial results to key projects around the globe. We are privileged to experience a continuously increase of new, extensive and challenging projects.
ARE YOU SPECIALISED IN SOLAR PV DESIGN?
As our new Electrical Solar PV Specialist, you will be welcomed by more than 20 hardworking, enthusiastic and friendly electrical engineers. All of us are specialised in different areas of electrical engineering. We are a very social, friendly and well-functioning team, which is clearly reflected in our high scores on employee engagement surveys. Preferably we want to anchor the position in Lyngby or Hamburg. But, if the perfect candidate is located in Aarhus or Vejle, we would be open to anchor the position in either location.
YOUR SKILLS. OUR TEAM. TOGETHER, WE DESIGN THE FUTURE
To succeed as a Solar Systems Specialist, you thrive in organising and leading the development of our competences in relation to utility scale solar PV projects. You have a high degree of initiative and bring a structured and dedicated approach to your work. You are flexible and open-minded, possess a good sense of humour and enjoy the social work environment.
