The Team and Company

Uplift Solar Corp. is an all-remote innovation firm dedicated to the Design and Engineering of systems platforms in solar and renewable energy and storage.

We love discovering market problems and challenging the solutions of yesteryear. We have a successful track record of developing technologies in the field of renewable energy, and our founders have previously supported drone and aerospace innovations. 

Our teamembers are spread out across the United States, including Las Vegas NV, Huntsville AL, and Rapid City SD. 

The Type of Things You'll Build

Uplift Solar is developing multiple technologies which will allow the hired candidate to apply their skills in electronics.

The particular focus of this role will be on the development of a smart solar panel, a wireless communication and embedded intelligence platform for residential solar. While more expensive upfront, the intelligent platform lowers costs of installation and avoids unnecessary losses from shade. A 10% increase in efficiency will roughly accelerate solar adoption by 10% overall, even without all the other intangible benefits of communication.

In parallel, this role may also assist in the electronics development of other projects, such as a battery management system.

Your Mission

  • Work together with designers and mechanical engineers to ensure proper mechanical and electronic integration.
  • Design, build, and test PCB boards.
  • Source electronic components.
  • Optimize and maintain the bill of materials (BOM) for mass production of the electronics systems.
  • Manage the electrical engineering of multiple projects in parallel.

Required Skills and Experience

  • Experience in Altium or some comparable
  • Independent with good communication and team working skills.
  • Efficient time management and organization skills with the ability to manage multiple tasks in parallel.

A Few "Good to haves"

  • Embedded programming
  • Previous experience in Bluetooth Mesh
  • Experience with the patenting process
