Talent Acquisition Specialist

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.

Why join Opus One Solutions:

Opus One is growing! After spending the last four years under the radar focused on research and pilot projects we’re ready to shine as one of Canada’s top 10 game-changers named by CIX Cleantech! We are deploying exciting microgrid projects in North America and have partnerships with leading energy players such as Tesla and Advanced Microgrid Solutions.

There’s a lot of humility at Opus One Solutions. No one person is going to know it all – it’s too complicated. We must work and innovate together to get the job done.
