Position: Software Engineering internship

Oceans of Energy is a scale up company that is focused on developing the world’s first floating solar systems at sea. Our goal is to allow all islands and all populations near the sea to generate clean energy using the ocean space rather than the scarce land. We are passionate about creating new maritime technology and believe that an innovation is most successful when lead by a small organization which is 100% focused on making it a success. All members of our engineering team, both staff and interns, play a key role in the development of our novel floating renewable energy platforms. We cooperate actively with research institutes like TNO, ECN part of TNO, offshore industry and universities to realize our first pilot projects, the first of which to go to open sea in early 2020. An important part of these projects is the monitoring, which includes the reading of sensors from different disciplines, storing this data locally and remotely in a common format, processing the data afterwards and presenting the data in a clear and attractive format.

Internship Responsibilities include:

  • Assembling sensor hardware
  • Reading out sensors using Arduino or Raspberry Pi
  • Saving data in databases
  • Synchronizing databases among local, remote and cloud storage
  • Data mining and processing to produce useful information
  • Design of web/app interface for useful interpretation in an attractive format
  • Documenting clearly all choices made

Qualifications and Qualities: 

  • Master or Bachelor (University/HBO) student in (typically) Computer Science or Software Engineering of strong affinity with implementation of electrical systems
  • Capable of working with sensor hardware
  • Experience with reading sensors with Arduino/Raspberry Pi
  • Programming experience with Python
  • Experience building websites
  • Startup mentality: enthusiastic/driven, independent, taking initiative, solutions-oriented and getting things done with simple means 
  • Good communicator and able to work in a small team 
  • English language skills
