A Snapshot of Your Day 

Your day starts smoothly with your own focus time where you define your working agenda for the day.

After that you prepare the first meetings with internal colleagues for upcoming negotiations with your client. In the whole engineering process you are one of the key persons designing the plant layout of HVDC and FACTS systems where you have to coordinate different disciplines to design the best and cost-efficient solution for the project, based on customer requirements. 
Soon, you will receive the first calls via Microsoft Teams and you will be involved in the finding of improvements and solutions in your layout concept with the interdisciplinary project team.

Your afternoon starts with the customer meeting and your presentation of the plant layout. Here you will convince your customer of our solutions and discuss all open questions and requests.
As it is one of our most important customers, you will then meet internally with the project team to define the next steps in the design process and update the project schedule accordingly. 

How You’ll Make an Impact 
  • Responsible for the design of the plant layout of HVDC and FACTS system considering customer specification, country-specific standards and EHS requirements
  • Technical lead of an interdisciplinary project team including all stakeholders involved in the design process 
  • Responsible for the design of the overall plant layout in 3D considering BIM methodologies
  • Technical negotiations with customers, engineering services and suppliers as well as contact person for the construction sites, preferably on site
  • Cost calculation, scheduling, and design of the whole primary engineering for HVDC & FACTS systems, including electromagnetic calculations, studies (noise emissions, earthing, lightning protection) and material specifications
What You Bring
  • Leadership and communication skills as well as motivation, willingness to learn and enthusiasm for the job
  • Fluent in English and German (min. C1) and willingness to travel internationally
  • Knowledge in the field of standards for the design of power systems with a.c. voltages > 1 kV and d.c. voltage >1,5 kV as well as in 3D construction with Autodesk products (AutoCAD, Inventor, Navisworks)
  • Completed university degree in electrical or mechanical engineering or comparable fields, alternatively completed training as a technician with correspondingly relevant professional experience
  • Long-term experience in execution of large-scale plants as well as experience in project management (cost, quality, time)
  • Basic knowledge of power systems and high-voltage technology
About the Team

In our multicultural team, we are responsible for the entire design of HVDC and FACTS plant layouts. We form a central function in the design process and are continuously in discussion with all interface partners. In addition to the project business, we are heavily involved in the digitalization of our engineering processes and develop solutions to simplify and automate routine work. As part of the team, you are the driver of our Digital Readiness project, with which we want to make the vision of the Art of Engineering a reality.
