At Hitachi Energy our purpose is advancing a sustainable energy future for all. We bring power to our homes, schools, hospitals, and factories. Join us and work with fantastic people, while learning and developing yourself on projects that have a real impact to our communities and society. Bring your passion, bring your energy, and be part of a global team that appreciates a simple truth: Diversity + Collaboration = Great Innovation.

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?

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.

We are looking for a Simulation and Verification Engineer to join our HVDC team at Hitachi Energy – Montreal. You will be part of a team of talented engineers working for Control and protection, reporting to the HVDC Engineering Manager in Canada. You will be responsible for performing simulations and verifications on real-time control in real and virtual environments. If you have experience on control and protection and simulations with EMT software, you are eager to learn, and you enjoy working on a global structure of high technology and innovation, apply now! 


  • Virtual representation of real-time control and protection systems.

  • Test automation and metrics with verification studies.

  • Support to study engineers in projects with insight for the base virtual development needs of our organization.
