General Description:

Founded in 2007, Principle Power is an innovative technology and services provider for the offshore wind energy market. Our proven, patented technology, the WindFloat, is the leading floating offshore wind foundation enabling a radical reduction of costs and risks. Principle Power's mission is to make the WindFloat the most competitive, safe, reliable and environmentally friendly technology for offshore wind projects while enabling global offshore wind markets to reach their full potential. 

As an Organization, we are a Diverse Team located in 3 Continents, where different approaches, ideas and contributions are welcomed aiming at supporting a more Sustainable World.

In the context of our multiple worldwide projects on the next generation of WindFloat Platforms, we want to reinforce our European team, based in Emeryville, CA, with a Senior Global Performance Engineer/Naval Architect.

Principle Power is focused on the commercial-scale deployment of floating wind farms. The successful candidate will work on the engineering and design of the next generation of offshore floating wind turbines.

In particular, the candidate will be responsible for executing various R&D projects relating to the design of the WindFloat and floating offshore wind farms. R&D projects will include both external collaborations funded through federal grants as well as other internal initiatives in line with our technology roadmap.
