We’re Building the Future! 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?

About The Company

Powin Energy is a leading producer of 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; deploy-ability; 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 is looking for an experienced Software Engineer who will be responsible for creating and maintaining software that simulates various parts of our energy storage system products and the environment they work in. As a part of the Simulators team, this position reports to the VP of Software Engineering, but will work directly with Powin’s software engineers, test engineers, and product managers to create simulators for cells, batteries, energy management systems, and other components. We use a combination of real hardware, simulated hardware (using HIL), firmware, and software and are looking for a software engineer capable of working with complex systems and expanding our capabilities.

Job Details:

  • Collaborate with our software, firmware, QA, product management, and hardware teams to identify and refine simulation requirements
  • Evaluate hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) optimizations to improve the fidelity of simulated components and systems
  • Gain proficiency with energy storage system technology to create high quality simulation models and applications
  • Participate in the planning process to help set implementation estimates and work sequencing
  • Produce and maintain artifacts such as drawings, documents, and code


  • 4 – 7 years’ experience in software development (Java and Python preferred)
  • 1 – 3 years’ experience with software/hardware simulation
  • Familiarity with advanced mathematics such as calculus, statistics, and linear equations
  • Comfortable with CI/CD pipelines (e.g., Jenkins, etc.)
  • Experience with energy systems and protocols (SCADA, Modbus, etc.) is a plus
  • Experience with embedded systems development is a plus
  • Familiarity with AWS cloud services desired
  • Remote position, with expected regular travel to the Tualatin office

Be a part of the future by making a difference with Powin!
