​Piper Maddox has been engaged on an exclusive assignment to recruit a Manager/Lead Engineer of Power Systems and Integration for one of North America's most exciting and fastest-growing developers of distributed energy resources.

Our client founded in North America has now grown to become one of the most disruptive and pioneering players in the global energy market. After recently closing Billions in additional funding, they are looking to aggressively expand their portfolio of DG Solar and Energy Storage in the US.

To support this expansion this newly created role will be the technical expert and lead authority in North America for all matters related to the interconnection and modeling of their DG assets. We essentially require this person to have significant working knowledge of power systems analysis, and Utility requirements across the US in order to provide technical support to the Development team.

Essential Requirements:

  • Experience of Power System projects ideally encompassing T&D, Substations, and Renewable Energy Generation. Ideally, this experience will have been gained working in Utilities/ISOs and/or Developers/IPPs

  • Experience interacting and negotiating with stakeholders in external businesses on technical interconnection issues. For example, working at a Developer and negotiating with the Utility on interconnection requirements.

  • Great familiarity with US market-specific standards and codes. Given that this business has a big portfolio in the North East and Mid-West preference will be given to those with experience in these markets I.E. PJM, MISO, NYISO, ERCOT.

  • This person will need to be at least a degree in Engineering; preference will be given to candidates with a degree in Electrical Engineering and a post-graduate (Master or PhD).

This role will report to the executive leadership of the business and will therefore work with a high degree of autonomy and enjoy a high level of visibility within the organization. Given the massive growth ambitions of the company, this is a great opportunity to put yourself in a position to scale a team and lead a department in a short time frame if that is your ambition – although it is also possible for this role to work in a ‘stand-alone' capacity.  

Besides an excellent salary & compensation package, this business can offer you the chance to be part of a truly exciting story. This role can be based remotely anywhere in the US. For more information reach out to our Solar team in NYC.
