We help our customers to light their homes, power small businesses, stay connected and expand opportunities for work and study. We power more than 200,000 homes across 5 countries and provide clean energy access to nearly 1,000,000 people every day. At the heart of our business is innovative solutions that empower our customers. With a distributed global team concentrated in Africa, Amsterdam, and San Francisco, we are looking for an Embedded Systems Engineer in our San Francisco subsidiary, Zola Electric Labs, Inc., to work with our Design Engineering Team developing our next generation product. You will fall in love with this role if you are passionate about making technology that can change the lives of over a billion people who lack access to modern energy.
This may be your dream job if you’re someone who dreams of combining your knowledge and skills enabling Zola Electric to change the renewable energy landscape. You’ll also need to be passionate about bringing solar energy to off-grid and other underserved markets — billions of people around the world — with the unique social, technical, and business challenges that come along with it. You are inspired by the opportunity to unleash human potential, and motivated to help build a truly epic business.
Zola Electric Labs is looking for an Embedded Systems Engineer to write Energy controller applications running on an embedded platform. The systems are at an early stage, so you will need to be able to contribute to cross functional system architecture, software system design, and rapid prototyping before developing a production solution.
What you'll do:
ZOLA Electric, previously known as Off Grid Electric, combines Silicon Valley technology with local expertise to deliver clean, affordable, reliable solar energy solutions for African homes and businesses with unreliable or nonexistent grid connections.
Adaptable to energy need and income, ZOLA Electric’s solar systems can be bought over time using micro-finance, PAYGo leasing, and mobile money payments. The first few watts start a chain reaction that enables people to achieve commonly held aspirations: security, education and access to information. We help our customers to light their homes, power small businesses, stay connected and expand opportunities for work and study.
Today, ZOLA Electric provides unmatched customer service and clean energy to more than 1,000,000 customers, homes and businesses across Tanzania, Rwanda, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana and Nigeria. ZOLA Electric’s investors include Tesla, DBL Partners, Helios Investment Partners, EDF, Total, and GE Ventures.
