Hitachi Energy has an exciting opportunity as a Project Lead Engineer with tasks to primarily manage tenders and projects in the world market. Do you want to enable green energy transition, and together with colleagues build customized embedded control systems consisting of both software and hardware to meet our customers’ and the world’s needs for sustainable, flexible and insecure energy?

This role is based in the United Kingdom (Glasgow/Birmingham). Please note we are unable to provide any visa support on this position.

We are convinced that HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current) technology, solutions for energy transfer with direct current at high voltages, is a long-term sustainable solution. The technology is used for energy transmission over long distances and to connect electricity networks with minimal losses. In addition to energy transfer, HVDC technology also

alleviates electricity quality problems and can contribute to the stabilization of connected power grids. For offshore wind power or long-distance underwater transmissions, direct current is the only realistic energy transmission alternative.

Are you ready to contribute to an ultra-relevant industry to save the planet? Do not hesitate to send your application. We appreciate potential and personal commitment equal to experience. We offer you an exciting and stimulating work environment, where you become an important team player collaborating to deliver our world-class technology and developing the best HVDC solutions for our customers.
