An innovate energy storage company that has established itself over the last 6 years. A well-funded company with an original take on technology, design and customer interaction. They are set to make significant waves in the energy industry and play a significant role in helping shape a new landscape in the energy industry.  


In an industry set to be worth $20 billion by 2020, the company has successfully deployed a large fleet of their batteries and are on the precipice of taking a leading position in the rapidly growing energy storage industry.


The Role:

As a mechanical design engineer, you will work as part of a multi-disciplined group, lead the design of containerised systems and mechanical assemblies for energy storage solutions. You will be expected to model assemblies, draught schematics and single line drawings and have the ability to create technical illustrations and 3D conceptual models.



While the work will vary according to the project, you'll typically need to:

  • Construct from rough sketches and specifications created by the technical and sales team
  • Produce documentation and liaise with external suppliers, assemblers and manufacturers to ensure these designs are translated into high quality manufactured assemblies
  • Provide technical expertise and support during manufacturing (FAT) and installation (SAT) of units
  • Construct detailed 3D models and have the ability to incorporate and manipulate third party CAD assemblies
  • Construction of Bill of Material using the schematics drawn and other sources of reference
  • Knowledge of construction techniques to add details to electro-mechanical plans
  • Specify dimensions, materials and manufacturing procedures for new products
  • Sketch up various design concepts to assist the technical, product and sales team
  • Produce product documentation for internal and external use, as well as technical reports
  • Coordinate with other departments involved in the project, specially the technical te
