About Us:

SunDrive is one of Australia's most exciting start-ups, operating in one of the world's most exciting spaces – renewable energy technology.

We are on a mission to unlock Solar's full potential by revolutionizing how solar cells are made, to unlock new heights of efficiency, cost, and sustainability.

Founded in 2015 by two UNSW roommates (Vince Allen - a PhD student in solar and David Hu – a former investment banker), we have come a long way from the breakthrough made in their garage to producing the world’s most efficient commercial-sized solar panel.

In 2022, we secured $21 million in our Series A funding round, and are backed by some of Australia’s top venture capital firms (Blackbird, Main Sequence, Virescent, and Mike Cannon-Brooke’s private investment fund, Grok), tech founders, a former Australian Prime Minister, and the Australian Government.

You will focus on:

  • Lead contractors' design and construction of control cabinets, ensuring alignment with both project requirements and strict compliance with relevant Australian safety standards
  • Collaborate closely with in-house engineering teams to ensure the seamless integration of control cabinets with other sub-systems, optimizing the overall efficiency of solar production systems
  • Engage with suppliers and contractors to source quality components, and efficiently manage procurement processes
  • Hands-on troubleshooting and assist with maintenance on existing solar production equipment to identify and address electrical issues
  • Design and execute comprehensive test plans to verify third-party equipment's functionality, aligning it with internal requirements and Australian safety standards.
  • Maintain comprehensive documentation for control cabinet designs, design changes, processes, equipment maintenance, and test plans, ensuring clear and organized records to facilitate efficient project management and compliance with standards

We would love you to have:

  • An Australian recognised Electrical qualification and Licence
  • Strong knowledge of Australian electrical and automation standards.
  • Previous experience with industrial automation & control cabinet design / assembly.
  • Negotiation experience with suppliers, contractors.
  • Ability to interpret and advise on large, complex electrical schematics & diagrams.
  • Hands-on mentality as needed to complete the job.
