Job Details

Alpha is looking for a world-class Electrical Engineer to join our latest Moonshot. Alpha Energy wants to bring electricity to the 2.7Billion people around the world that have poor or no access to it. We want to bring them power and raise their prosperity and quality of life. We want to turn the way electricity is distributed upside down, democratize energy, and enable people to build their own energy networks from the bottom-up.


The first challenge is bringing together an awesome multi-disciplinary team to help launch this new Moonshot. This is your chance to be a founding part of a well-backed team with a mission to change the world.


We are looking for someone to design, build and prototype radically new solutions for power distribution.


We’re looking to you to…


  • Design the first iterations of the products that will make Alpha Energy a reality

  • Prototype early and often to prove out engineering concepts

  • Design new and modified products that are cost effective and designed for manufacturing

  • Coordinate PCB and mechanical design with external printed circuit board fab vendors

  • Perform Rapid Control Prototyping (RCP) to quickly develop embedded software solutions

  • Detailed design and analysis of power conditioning equipment associated with power supplies, frequency converters and multi-level converters

  • Work closely with multi-disciplinary groups including Product Design and Software Engineering



You’re motivated by making the world a better place, through technology that matters. By making a positive impact on society and by improving people’s lives. This is about solving really hard problems - not about making cool things. You could personally have an effect on millions of people’s lives. Are you up to the challenge?


You’ve got…


  • A mid-to-senior level of experience in product engineering, microcontrollers, power electronic, etc.

  • Electrical or power systems engineer with knowledge of power systems analysis, planning, operations, distributed power state-estimation and optimal control.

  • Knowledge of distributed energy and networking, IoT and communication protocols: distribution system planning, distributed energy resources impact assessments, power flow & reliability analysis, developing and implementing logic & control systems for operation of power system equipment.

  • You’ve got a great understanding of microcontroller firmware development and can seamlessly transition from hardware to firmware.You’re a hacker type excited about doing the early proof-of-concept and early design work.

  • Knowledge of current manufacturing techniques for power products

  • We are looking for a maverick with mid-to-senior level experience, a design degree, and a track record littered with impressive successes in the market and some really smart failures

  • Understanding of Control Theor
