Company Description

Our mission at Enphase Energy is to advance a sustainable future for all.

Today, our intelligent microinverters, which turn sunlight into an affordable, safe, reliable, and scalable source of energy, work with virtually every solar panel made, and when paired with our award-winning smart battery technology, we engineer one of the industry's best-performing clean energy systems. To date, we have installed more than 48 million microinverters on more than 2.5 million systems across 140 countries and well over 50 thousand homes use our energy storage products.

Like our customers, our innovative teams are also worldwide, making Enphase Energy a truly global company. We are one of the fastest growing and most dynamic energy companies in the world. Nimble and acutely focused on developing ground-breaking solar energy management technology, each of our teams has a shared goal of creating a carbon-free future.

About the Role

We are looking for Electrical Engineering graduates at ME/MTech or Ph.D. levels. We are looking for candidates those have hands-on when it comes to working with or creating electrical / electronic systems. This includes being familiar with both HW and FW.

As a Systems Engineer, the successful candidate will be part of the systems engineering team that is responsible for defining, integrating, and testing the systems behaviour for Enphase’s energy solutions.



  • Architecture, modelling and simulation of Grid agnostic system that consist of renewable energy, Energy storage and Genset resources with utility grid.
  • Developing models of Enphase grid agnostic system and study the interaction with the utility grid.
  • Performing grid code compliance studies (Steady state, transients, power quality) for integration of renewable, storage systems with utility grid.
  • Mentor and train other engineers throughout the company and seek to continually improve processes companywide
  • Work closely with engineering professionals within the company to maintain hardware and software needed for projects to be completed efficiently
  • Collaborates with other professionals to ensure high quality deliverables within organization guidelines, policies, and procedures.
  • Requirement management and documentation of system behaviour
  • Assist in the coordination of various teams testing and evaluating for the development of design and its implementation of the best output.
  • Guide the team for developing test automation setups that can evaluate the system behaviour and allow multiple tests to be run sequentially automatically, then write data into databases
  • Generate reports and be able to present data, with the ability to report bugs or issues
