General Information:

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 HVDC Test 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 preparing documents and procedures for tests, setup simulations schemes with hardware in loop systems, and run those simulations with real control equipment. If you have experience in hardware in loop, testing control and protection equipment, you are eager to learn, and you enjoy working on a global structure of high technology and innovation, apply now! 


  • Create simulator model and configuration setup in RSCAD / Hypersim

  • Support testing of delivery projects

  • Participate in the testing in our Factory System Test

  • Be involved in the development of our testing processes

  • Live Hitachi Energy’s core values of safety and integrity, which means taking responsibility for your own actions while caring for your colleagues and the business.


  • You have proven experience in electrical engineering and with high voltage equipment.

  • You hold a bachelor’s or master's degree within the relevant technical area.

  • Knowledge of real time simulators RTDS and OPAL RT

  • To succeed and thrive, you need an attention to the details while still being able to grasp the bigger picture.

  • Equally important is your ability to work individually as well as in teams, and to take leadership of assigned tasks.

  • You are proud of and take responsibility for the work you do at Hitachi Energy.

  • As you will be a part of a global business, fluency in English is required, written and spoken alike.

  • French speaking is an asset

Only selected applicants will be contacted.
