IT Solutions Architect - Renewable Energy

Company: Task Force Talent
Location: Houston
Posted on: August 7, 2022

Job Description:

Our client, a major company in Houston, is looking for an experienced IT solutions architect to build out a renewable energy business, starting with onshore wind power. This is NOT a hands on keyboard programming/developer job; rather, this is for someone who understands many different pieces of technology, enjoys talking to internal and external customers, and can figure out how to put everything together. To help build this business, you should understand not only IT systems and data BUT ALSO how to interface with finance, energy trading, physical assets (industrial control -- think SCADA/IoT), and all the security complexities. In other words, everything from making the wind turbine work to delivering electrons down the wires at the right time and price.
There are a lot of challenging problems to solve, and as this is a highly competitive business, efficiency is key.
This is a great position for someone who is technically savvy and wants to make a difference in deploying efficient green energy solutions in the U.S. and potentially other countries. There are significant career growth opportunities as the renewable business expands into other areas. You'll be setting the foundation for this part of the company for at least the next 5-10 years.
Candidates should have at least 5 years of experience designing and deploying IT systems in complex environments. Ideally you already have experience with physical assets in the energy industry, but that's not required. Cloud experience -- ideally AWS or Azure -- is critical. Finally, you must be able to work positively and constructively in a team environment and be skilled at both understanding complex technical topics and explaining them at an appropriate level to different audiences.
This position is hybrid in Houston -- the office is located in west Houston, and expectations are generally that candidates will be in the office about 3 days/week, hours TBD necessary to get the job done. Minimal travel -- most likely to visit wind farms and vendors.
Candidates MUST be U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents (green card), or ALREADY HAVE valid U.S. work visas.
This position IS NOT a good match for:-- candidates outside the U.S.-- recent university graduates-- IT sysadmins who have not previously designed and delivered MAJOR systems on a significant scale.-- candidates seeking fully remote roles
