Lead Engineer Innovation & Concepts
As a technical Lead Engineer you will drive innovation from a very conceptual level to full scale demonstrator stage. You will have the opportunity to bring new ideas into concepts, perform feasibility studies and assess the associated uncertainties both on a technical as commercial level. The work is very diverse and ranges from creating load models, simulate new wind turbine concepts, software tool development to aerodynamic investigations, stability investigations and overall turbine design and optimization together with other system specialists. Dependent on your experience and level, you will lead larger projects or take up responsibility for one of our main tools.
We are looking for a skilled engineer with minimum 3 years of experience in wind turbine loads and performance, aero-elastics, stability or a relevant PhD related to wind turbine or helicopter rotor dynamics.
The ideal candidate has the motivation, capacity and understanding to dive into the underlying physics and phenomena related to fluid-structure interaction, has strong problem solving skills and has a desire to take wind turbine technology one step further. We are looking for a pro-active person with a strong drive for innovation, capable to take on technically complex tasks and the capacity to lead a project.
- Good programming skills with emphasis on quality, readability and maintainability;
- Experience with wind industry aero-elastic tools (e.g. Flex5, Bladed, HAWC2 or similar);
- Solid language skills in English;
- Experience with statistics and data analysis;
- Self-motivated and pro-active individual with a strong drive for innovation;
- Good team-player, open attitude and good communication skills;
- Experience in leading projects is a plus;
- Experience with wind turbine or blade testing and wind turbine measurement campaigns is a plus;
- Experience with blade design and wind turbine aerodynamics is a plus;
- Knowledge of wind turbine controls is a plus.
Danish language skills are not mandatory, Vestas is a multicultural company and international applicants are very welcome.
