Lead Software Developer


This is a Full-time position in Tualatin, OR posted June 10, 2021.

Ever want to ride a rocket ship?

Ever want to do hard work that will make a REAL difference in the world?

Do you want to solve some of the most difficult problems with a team of exceptional players at a company that does not believe in impossible?


Powin is a leading producer of a utility scale modular battery energy storage system (complete with a patented, advanced, cloud-based monitoring/control system).

That means we build power plants out of batteries that put coal and gas generators out of business and enable sustainable viability for renewable energy sources like solar and wind.

Powin is, and will continue to be, one of a handful of companies that will provide the equipment necessary to make this happen.

Powin has distinct competitive advantages: cost-effectiveness; reliability; scalability; ease of deployment; and operational sophistication.

Every day we work to ensure that we maintain these competitive advantages and our position as a global leader in providing turnkey, battery energy storage solutions for utility-scale, commercial and industrial, and microgrid applications.


Powin’s Product Engineering team is seeking a Software Engineering Manager to extend our platform to create simulated devices and to support advanced automations across the entire Product organization.


This role is highly visible, reports directly to the Senior VP of Product and Engineering, and is expected to be a strong technical leader in the Product and Engineering organization.

Create a new software engineering team (Simulation/Automation Engineering) to 1) Create intelligent device simulations to allow for prototyping of software applications, and rapid and effective QA testing 2) Build an automation library for driving complete implementations (in both the field and the lab), to speed up system characterization, data analysis, and testing and 3) Identify opportunities to modify our existing solutions to make them easier to test and automate, and then make those changes.

Both guide and work collaboratively with Software QA, Hardware QA, Software Engineering, Firmware Engineering, Data Analysis, ESCE (Energy Storage Center of Excellence) to provide a set of tools and systems that enable them to focus on their core responsibilities.
