California-based CalWave Power Technologies is seeking a mechanical engineer to further advance its wave energy converter technology to a commercial unit.
The selected individual will work closely with CalWave engineers and CalWave’s industry and R&D partners (including UC Berkeley, Sandia National Labs, NREL, others) for the systems design, manufacturing and testing of our drive train test bench and support activities leading towards manufacturing, build-out, and pre-deployment testing of our upcoming open water demonstration prototype.
The ideal candidate should have industry and/or project expertise in mechanical engineering and demonstrate superior skills in CAD designing, systems engineering, product development, fabrication and machining, and assembly and commissioning of complex mechanical systems
CalWave’s mission is to provide a solution to secure clean, affordable and reliable electricity and freshwater for coastal communities.
In January 2019, CalWave received an additional multi-million dollar award by DOE to build a commercial scale drive train.
This development is taking place in parallel to our ongoing open water demo awarded in 2017.
Applications for the mechanical engineer position should be submitted by June 30, 2019.
