Facts & Figures
Learn, grow, and make a difference
Be part of a vibrant team of pioneers that is developing a highly innovative wind energy technology with a tethered wing. Get the opportunity to learn, grow, and make an actual difference. Are you looking for flexible work arrangements? No problem. We’ll find a solution and trust that you deliver on the agreed objectives.
“Our development and performance programme challenges individuals to identify ambitions and opportunities. It is my role to match ambitions with company objectives and to help colleagues to tailor their career to their needs."
“The work here contains a sense of entrepreneurship as we are exploring some unknown territories in the field of airborne wind energy."
Highly skilled team
50 highly skilled professionals with more than 20 nationalities are working from The Hague and Melbourne. 85% has a university diploma and another 10% has a PhD degree. Previous employers include Universities, Nuon/Vattenfall, Airbus, ESA/ESTEC, Allseas, Shell, Fokker, Heineken and BAE Systems.
A small pool of MSc students is doing an internship, a thesis project or an industry fellowship at our company.
Together, we’re working on a technology that will help meet tomorrow’s energy demands.
Think in solutions
We value trust and think in solutions. We challenge each other to act pro-active and decisive. We expect everyone to think along with the company’s objectives and value everyone’s input and suggestions. We work with deadlines and objectives. This way of working helps us making significant steps in the development of a certifiable Airborne Wind Energy System for the utility scale market.
“I enjoy working on a very interesting and challenging project: shaping a wind energy aircraft. I work on the computational fluid dynamics and the aerodynamic shape optimization. I can’t wait to see the next prototype and the commercial type flying in the air."
Verification Engineer (Electronics)
You will be joining our electronics team. From 2020, we will test our experimental aircraft (AP3) in Ireland. The aircraft is a state of the art UAV utilizing fast, reliable, efficient electronic parts. Integration of our aircraft will happen at our own workshop in the Netherlands this year in order for it to be ready for ‘roll out’ and testing early next year.
System / Network Administrator
This vacancy is within our Office Support team. We are looking for a curious problem-solver that ensures that the IT infrastructure is fully operational for our international team of 50.
Flight Control Engineer
As member of the Algorithms team you will gain good knowledge of both control systems and algorithms design, as well as basic software engineering principles. You’ll support ao. the development and verification of computational algorithms for our Airborne Wind Energy Systems. We’re looking for an Aerospace Engineering graduate with some industry experience.
External Pilot ( Remote Control Pilot) Fixed wing UAV
As a member of the flight operations team, you will take an important role in flight operations of our AWE systems. As an External Pilot (Remote Control Pilot) you will serve as safety pilot during critical flight testing phase as well as take-off and landing operations if needed.
Internship: Aerodynamic modelling of rotors
Great opportunity to get involved in the conceptual design phase of our first commercial prototype!
You will be developing an aerodynamic model of the rotors of the aircraft in order to support the conceptual studies of AP-4. The model should be suited for both propellers and on-board generators, used respectively to generate thrust for climbing phases or to generate the power required for on-board avionics.
