Position Summary:

FlexGen is currently searching for a Senior Power Systems Engineer to create technical requirements and specification for various energy storage projects. This role will drive the engineering service for all energy storage system modeling, interconnection applications and project development. The right person will contribute to the software configurations needed to make FlexGen energy management system perform on site. This role will directly impact FlexGen's success by providing continuity in technical execution for many of the world’s leading-edge energy storage installations.

Energy storage represents a multibillion-dollar market at the center of the energy transition. The integration of energy storage requires software and technological solutions that play a critical role in the adoption of renewables at scale—offsetting the intermittency and reliability challenges that renewable power generation creates for the grid. Since its founding in 2009, FlexGen has supported deployments of more than 3 GWh of energy storage systems across the U.S. and internationally for utility, independent power producers, and C&I customers. The Company’s proprietary software platform, HybridOS™ is the brains behind battery energy storage projects, unlocking the full functionality of energy storage and enabling owners to manage multiple sites from a single platform.

FlexGen is dedicated to providing best-in-class service and performance for its customers, seeking to ensure safety, reliability, and resiliency in all operating environments. FlexGen supports the customer across the full journey of developing an energy storage project and leverages decades of engineering and software expertise to maximize the value that its customers ultimately receive.

Backed by a world-class group of investors including founding investors Jerry Miller and Mark Dreyfus, legacy investors GE Venture and Caterpillar Ventures, an initial equity investment by venture capital firm Altira Group, a Series B led by Apollo Global Management, and a Series C led by Swiss investment firm Vitol with participation from all existing investors, FlexGen is poised to grow substantially and quite rapidly.

Major Job Responsibilities:

  • 40% time to drive the battery energy storage system design, modeling, optimization, and specification with energy storage products and tools
  • 20% time to develop the techno-economic energy storage and hybrid system modeling tool that provides investment-grade analysis while simulating performance, degradation, warranty, costs, and revenue to optimize the economics of the project
  • 20% time to creating business analysis, interconnection insights, and business integration models for energy storage business in an upstream energy market
  • 10% time to create the preliminary single-line diagram and quick layout diagram for the energy storage and renewable project early phase development
  • 10% time to lead the project design engineering, interconnection study, and execution for the energy storage project development
  • Support the project design engineering, integration, execution, and commissioning

Position Requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree or higher in related field
