Malta is a new energy storage engineering company focusing on the construction of megawatt-scale pilot plant facilities. 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.

 

 

Model-Based Design Controls Engineer

The MBD Controls Engineer will be responsible for both system control algorithms and controls hardware. The engineer will work with internal team leads to determine and develop the algorithms necessary to support subsystem controls requirements and overall system control and performance. Working with both internal and external plant model developers, the MBD Controls Engineer will validate system controllability through regression tests that he or she develops. Working with an external controls hardware vendor, the MBD Controls Engineer will ensure the Malta-developed control algorithms integrate into the physical hardware, including Target in the Loop (TiL) and Hardware in the Loop (HiL) testing.

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.

Please send resume and cover letter to info@maltainc.com

Required:

  • BS or MS degree in Mechanical, Electrical, Controls, Systems, or Power Systems Engineering

  • 7+ years of experience

  • Experience with Mathworks Simulink programming environment and automatic code generation

  • Experience with Turbotronic, Mark VIe, SPAA-T3000, Rockwell Automation, Johnson Controls, and/or other distributed control systems

  • Experience with NPSS, ASPEN HYSYS, Modelica, Simscape or other multi-domain transient simulation tools

Desired:

  • In-depth knowledge of power plant equipment, operations, and control logic

  • Gas turbine, LNG, air separation, and/or CSP plant experience

 

 

Project Manager

The Project Manager will oversee development plans, including schedule and budget, for Malta's major near-term workstreams: the development of a viable product, including design development, and the development of a pilot project site, including site selection, detailed engineering, and ultimately construction, commissioning, validation testing, and site commercialization. Project plans will include integrated product development schedules and budgets for multiple concurrent workstreams that support technical development and capital fundraising. This position will interface with engineering teams, financial investors, customers, hardware vendors/manufacturers, contractors, and construction firms. The Project Manager will report on project status, risks, and key decision points with company board, as well as lead multi-disciplinary engineering team meetings. The Project Manager must also identify internal hiring needs, identify contractors, assign responsibilities, define priorities, and set deadlines.

This position requires strong communication and leadership skills for managing strategic partners and internal team members. Applicants should also have clear thinking skills for real-time risk management and solution implementation in a fast-moving startup environment. Candidate will be required to communicate technical and organizational developments to a wide audience of engineers, customers, and financial investors on a regular basis.

Required:

  • BS or MS degree in Mechanical, Systems, or Power Systems Engineering

  • 10+ year of engineering experience in a professional setting

  • 5+ years of project management experience

  • Project manager for complex power plant projects, ideally one or more projects deploying novel technologies

  • In-depth knowledge of power plant equipment, operations, and construction

  • Experience with electrical interconnection and industrial utility service

  • Experience with permitting and environmental regulations

  • Proficient in project management software (e.g., MS Project)

Desired:

  • MBA or PMP

  • Construction management experience

  • Deep understanding of thermodynamic cycles

  • Gas turbine liquefied natural gas (LNG), air separations, and/or concentrated solar power (CSP) plant experience

 

 

Technical Lead - Systems Integration

The Technical Lead – Systems Integration will be responsible for the development of a conceptual “reference” project layout including P&IDs, taking into account inputs from Malta’s turbomachinery and heat exchanger OEM partners, and internal Technical Leads for turbomachinery and heat exchangers. The Systems Integration effort is expected to have significant outside engineering support from third party engineering firms, which will be overseen by the Technical Lead – Systems Integration. He or she will be responsible for execution of detailed energy storage project requirements and specifications while ensuring cost efficiency and manage sub-system installation from budgeting to commissioning phase for multiple projects. He or she will also be responsible for evaluating and “owning” parasitic energy consumption/loss and proposing paths for increasing plant efficiency.

The Technical Lead – Systems Integration will oversee the selection of an EPC firm, through a competitive process, for detailed design and construction of the pilot project. A variety of project delivery methods for the design and construction of the pilot project can be considered. This position requires working with outside vendors and EPC firms to select and establish equipment component specifications, material take-off’s, requisitions, and vendor orders while coordinating budgets, project schedules, and manufacturing efforts. This position will interface with the rest of Malta’s engineering team, hardware vendors/manufacturers, contractors, and construction firms. 

Malta is seeking individuals with experience in managing project documentation including P&IDs, general arrangement, manufacturing drawings, specifications, material requisitions, BOM (Bill of Materials), and equipment operation manuals in accordance with stringent corporate standards. This position requires strong communication and leadership skills for managing strategic partners and internal team members. Applicants should also have clear thinking skills for real-time risk management and solution implementation in a fast-moving startup environment. Candidate will be required to communicate technical and organizational developments to a wide audience of engineers, customers, and financial investors on a regular basis.
