Power Systems Engineer, Mid

The Challenge:

What if you could use your engineering skills to transform military installations? As an electrical engineer, you understand the power behind complex systems. That knowledge is key when it comes to supporting the military in pursuing distributed generation, renewable energy, and microgrid goals. We’re looking for an electrical engineer who can use their skills to perform detailed analysis on electric infrastructure and provide solutions in the areas of distributed generation integration, smart grid implementation, microgrid implementation, and utility investment strategy.

Our team implements energy assurance projects on military installations. That’s why we need you, an electrical engineer, who specializes in electric utility power systems to help us design and develop energy resilient solutions. You’ll analyze electric distribution systems, transmission systems, and utility substations to determine any gaps between the baseline infrastructure and the requirements of mission owners. You’ll directly impact the DoD mission by ensuring that mission owners have access to energy when they need it. This is a chance to use your electrical engineering skills while gaining experience in solving complex problems and working with new technologies. Join us and take on exciting challenges with the military, as we provide resilient energy solutions in support of the DoD mission.

Empower change with us.
