Chief Engineerwith experience of product development who wants to join this exciting and potentially lucrative venture. Placement in Stockholm.
The product under development is a fully integrated, ground mounted, residential solar energy and storage system which includes solar photovoltaic panels, lithium-ion batteries, an inverter, processing and communication units and other balance of system components. The product is intended to compete on price with grid-based electricity and other residential energy solutions based on solar plus storage. Beyond powering peoples’ homes, we will develop software which can connect and control many household appliances and systems to the product, to allow for smart home networks, data collection and additional service offerings. Our ambition is to offer much more than a hardware solution, though the early development stage will mostly be focused on hardware.

After the successful development of the product, the company will transition from development to large-scale production and your role will change accordingly. Your initial, primary responsibility will be to design a working product based on the product concept. This includes a technical design that is functional and cost effective for mass-production. You will be the first team member working on the design, though we expect further recruitment in 2018 or 2019. You will work closely with the company’s founder and with the current project team with competence within in business development, manufacturing, engineering and finance.
