Startup Location: Atlanta, GA

Emrgy provides clean energy generation capabilities to the owners / managers of man-made water transport canals constituting a multi-billion dollar opportunity in North America alone. The Company’s 5-10 kW modular hydropower turbines integrate flexibly within existing waterways to generate continuous renewable electric power using innovative hardware and software technology.

Emrgy’s distributed hydropower solution embodies the same attributes that have made the wind and solar power industries grow exponentially over the past several decades: modularity and flexibility. Building upon four years of development, over $2 million in Federally-sponsored R&D funding and growing customer engagements, Emrgy is preparing for expansion and significant sales with committed municipal and utility customers in 2019.

About The Work:

The Engineering Program Manager (EPM) oversees the deployment of Emrgy’s current and future product lines in close coordination with Emrgy’s product engineering and manufacturing programs. This role will oversee the entire energy production system, including the hydrokinetic turbine technology, power take-off system, control and power electronics, balance-of-system components and grid/microgrid interconnect. This role will also have responsibility for the supply chain and external contractors that support deployment. The work will include customer site visitation, project design, vendor and contractor interaction and management, and general project management to aggressive deadlines.

The Engineering Program Manager will report directly to the Chief Operating Officer as well as have frequent interaction with the CEO and Emrgy’s Innovation Team. As much as 50% travel to project sites may be required.
