Software Engineer

EWT is a Dutch headquarted designer, supplier, and O&M provider of its market leading wind turbine range. Its turbines are predominantly used to provide localised on and off grid generation solutions for customers spanning industry, agriculture, water utilities, communities, investment funds and landowners. Active in Europe, North America and building its business in Asia, EWT’s mission is to provide high-quality wind turbines with the lowest possible cost of ownership to the growing world of localised energy generation. The company’s highly professional standards and deep investment in technology are confirmed by its ISO 9001 and VCA** certification, as well as both the high availability levels across its fleet and the competitive cost of energy for localised generation.

Due to our ambitious international expansion strategy and our fast growing order portfolio, we have several excellent career opportunities for professionals whose sense of commitment, motivation, innovation and technical excellence equals our own. We strongly believe that our success in the world market for wind energy is powered by our most valuable assets: our talented and motivated employees.

As the leading Wind turbine distributed energy company, EWT’s product is deployed within microgrid and other systems (eg behind the meter of on site consumers) where the turbine serves within a wider energy generation and demand management system. In addition, EWT’s localised deployments can often be value enhanced by the addition of storage and/or other facilities.
