MECHANICAL ENGINEER

What we do

At Terabase Energy, we believe that digitalization and automation _will drive the next wave of _innovation and cost reduction in large scale solar. To fully unlock the potential of this opportunity, Terabase is developing an interconnected software and construction automation platform. We work alongside project developers, owners, and engineering & construction firms to support the design, optimization, and construction of huge solar projects around the world. Our team is a blend of solar-industry veterans and newbies, thought-leaders, dreamers, software, electrical and mechanical engineers, coders, product managers, project managers, and sales and marketing professionals. We are based in Northern California, with several other offices in the United States and around the world. If all of this piques your interest, we’d love to hear from you!

Job description

The successful candidate will thrive in Terabase’s unique operating environment and culture: high-growth, innovative, lean, and values-driven. As such, successful candidates must be highly capable in each of the following dimensions (among others): adaptability, curiosity, resourcefulness, analytical thinking/problem solving, pro-activity, collaboration, technological savvy, operating in a dynamic environment and most importantly dedicated to the mission of accelerating the decarbonization of the global economy by utilizing digital and automation technology to further reduce the cost of utility-scale solar.

Do you approach the world with curiosity and ask the question “What if?” Do you enjoy solving interesting engineering problems that no one has solved before through using your creativity to quickly design, build and field test solutions?  If so, this opportunity may be for you
 
Responsibilities
- Innovate solutions for improving solar utility power plant installation efficiency.
- Design, develop, manufacture and install new or modified mechanical components or systems.
- Iterate designs quickly to find the optimal product configuration.
- Perform thorough analysis and validation on mechanical designs leveraging both hands-on problem solving as well sound engineering practices.
- Own all phases of the product development process from concept, through prototyping, field testing, production drawings
- Contribute to other team members projects through collaborative design reviews
- Provide guidance and mentorship to other team members

Minimum Qualifications
- 3 years of product development experience (5+ years preferred)
- BS in Mechanical Engineering or related field or equivalent experience (MS degree preferred)
- A demonstrated track record in product development
- Demonstrable experience with hands on prototyping and troubleshooting
- Ability to work independently and exercise solid decision making
- High level of CAD proficiency including 3D modeling, 2D drafting, and GD&T
- Good written and verbal communication skills
- Ability to perform hand calculations for design validation
- Able to work remotely and as part of a distributed team

Preferred Qualifications
- 3 years of product development experience
- Experience in robotics and automation for high volume manufacturing
- Working knowledge of solar utility power plant components
- Ability to perform finite element analysis (e.g. ANSYS, ABAQUS, SolidWorks Simulation), for design validation including non-linear behavior
- Experience in evaluating structural dynamic behavior (due to wind or transportation loads)
- Demonstrated experience leading Root Cause Analysis and Corrective Action problem solving for mechanical components
