Are you excited about the future and green energy? Are you passionate about good technology and smart solutions and love working in the intersection between technology and sustainability?

Then let me tell you a little bit what you can be a part of.

ECO STOR AS, owned by Agder Energy, is a Norwegian clean-technology start-up with offices in Oslo and Munich that develops innovative energy storage solutions allowing reuse of electric vehicle batteries in homes and commercial properties. The company currently has a small team of employees and consultants working to enable affordable energy storage. From our offices in Oslo, we coordinate an international team of problem-solvers that includes industry experts in the field of batteries and energy storage. We are all highly engaged in the environmental footprint, and we hope to meet people sharing the same vision.

The company has recently secured several contracts for system deployment and is looking for new employees that would like to be part of a team that will help to shape the future of renewable energy.

The role as Software Engineer in ECO STOR

We are now looking for Software Engineers who wants to work in a company at the forefront of renewable energy developing software for our hardware and software solutions. We are mainly looking for developers to work on our microcontroller based BIU (Battery Interface Unit) which is communicating with, and ensuring the safety of, our second life Electric Vehicle battery energy storage systems. The people you will be working with are the engineers of ECO STOR, a small group of enthusiastic problem-solvers.

As pioneers in the field of second life battery storage in Norway, we are learning “as we go”, as such, all of us venture outside the definition of our official job title to take on tasks and responsibilities as needed. This means that though the development of the BIU will be your main responsibility, there will be lots of other tasks that will come up, both software related and others, that you can take on based on your skills and desires.

Examples of different tasks:

  • Automation scripts for tasks in the workshop
  • Writing software for testing batteries
  • Additional software for gathering system information etc
  • Database configuration, setup and communication
  • Simple configuration and setup of small networks
  • Configuring and programming of industrial controllers
