Who we are:
Creating a planet fueled by reliable, clean energy isn’t what keeps us up at night; it’s what get’s us out of bed. At Opus One Solutions, we pursue solutions that will change how countries access and distribute electrical energy. From microgrids that keep things running in the event of an outage to how Tesla's latest batteries can help accelerate the integration of renewable energy. From how electric utilities can optimize their operations and reduce their carbon footprint to how every homeowner will feed energy into a power grid fueling the electrical sharing economy.
At Opus One Solutions, we believe some of the best talent in the tech industry share our passion for delivering technology that matters and that will make a difference, in our lifetime and beyond. We want to work with people who love the complexities of software; who believe in its power to transform the world to a better place.
Good people know that great ideas are everywhere and what matters most is practical execution. Turning vision into reality is the hard part. But, when it’s creating technical solutions that support access to renewable energy, it’s an engineering feat worth contributing to.
We are looking for a Power Systems Engineer who will be responsible for performing electrical studies and planning utility electrical distribution systems which will include Distribution System Planning Studies, hosting capacity studies, Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) impact studies, constraint management studies, power flow and reliability studies. We need a Power Systems Engineer who would love to develop and test the most advanced DER’s models in modern 4th generation modelling languages like GAMS that will be directly used by our software platform in order to give utilities the advanced tools they need to plan for the future electrical grid.
Who are you?
You are an ambitious, independent, team oriented Power System Engineer, who clearly understands power systems planning, operation, state-estimation and optimal control; is familiar with distribution system planning including DERs; familiar with energy markets and especially the transactive energy concept; must know power flow and optimal power flow formulation, analysis and implementation within GAMS/Matlab/CYME/PSSE; familiar with Excel (as a data analysis tool).
What’s in it for you?
Challenges. The electrical power grid is a lifeline to millions of people. Quite literally, this is a system that cannot go down when it comes to hospitals, traffic controls and more. Your challenge is to help a diverse and multi-disciplinary team develop software that is robust enough to help utilities keep the lights on.
Growth. This is a role where you will be looking into problems that only bright and brave researchers dare to work on.
Personal and professional satisfaction. You want to do meaningful work. You don’t just want to build things, you want to build technology solutions that matter.
