This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced and talented Electrical Engineer to join their multidisciplinary team based in Dublin to work on the design of some of the most exciting critical systems / data centre projects in Europe.

As part of the established team of expert engineers, and working closely with colleagues of various disciplines, you will be responsible for preparing both scheme and detailed engineering designs for the electrical systems (medium voltage distribution, low voltage distribution, essential power / back-up power, electrical building services including life safety services, etc) for major data centre and other critical systems projects.

The role will involve working mostly on data centre projects ranging from plant upgrades through to 100MW+ hyperscale projects. If you are not already a Chartered Engineer then you will be supported towards Chartership.

You will be educated to degree level (MEng or BEng or equivalent), in Electrical Engineering, and having gained substantial experience in an Electrical Engineering role within the electrical services field preferably in a data centre / critical systems context (electrical distribution and power generation systems etc.

You have proven experience of detailed coordination with other design disciplines, and are well-versed in theory behind and use of relevant design software including Amtech, ETAPS or SKM power systems analysis software.
