Influxdb, Chronograf, Grafana? Are you a software genius that can make sense of these terms? Are these programmes so familiar to you that you can use them with your eyes closed? If you answered yes to the above, this is the job for you.
Our client, a renewable energy firm, that focuses on utilising solar technology, and finance, as well as engineering expertise that they have mastered over the years, to positively contribute to powering Africa with clean energy, are in need of a Solar Software Engineer. This role is made for you if you have an Electrical Engineering or Computer Science related degree that can put your knowledge and passion for the renewable energy industry to the test.

As a Solar Software Engineer for this respectable company, you will be responsible for adding new features to the python-based software that will blow their previous software engineers’ ideas out of the water. Your role is vital as these new improvements will allow the engineering team and other members of the software team to adequately visualise as well as store important data about solar plant performance. Therefore, working knowledge of systems including PVSyst, PVSol, CAD, and Solidworks is clearly a must-have. In addition to this main duty, you will also be responsible for managing the company’s servers, developing and implementing display screens for easy visualisation and troubleshooting these hardware systems should anything go wrong. Furthermore, you should showcase excellent communication skills as you will be liaising with the Commissioning Manager to ensure that the PV projects systems are protected and convey the necessary data.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a bright minded individual to transfer valuable knowledge in the renewable energy sector by ways of system manipulation, data understanding and good foresighting skills.
