We encourage applicants from all engineering disciplines as well as the business sector. We are currently seeking highly motivated and enthusiastic candidates for the positions listed below.

 

 

Senior Simulation and Modeling Engineer

The Senior Simulation and Modeling Engineer will be responsible for the development and operation of a transient modeling tool to simulate the Malta storage system. This engineer will work with the rest of the engineering team to optimize the performance of the system. Responsibilities will include:

  • Refinement of the cycle design using dynamic simulations

  • Integration of customer requirements and reporting trade-offs

  • Working closely with our Principal Controls Engineer on the architecture and operation of control systems

  • Supporting turbomachinery, heat exchanger, and BoP development

  • Validation and improvement of plant models based on pilot plant operating data

  • Supporting other efforts to produce deliverables to meet performance and cost targets

This position requires strong communication skills for interfacing with various strategic partners and internal team members from various technical backgrounds. Applicants should also have clear thinking skills for real-time troubleshooting and solution implementation during extensive field testing of pilot product. Candidate will be required to communicate technical findings to a wide audience of engineers, customers, and financial investors on a regular basis.
