Gulf Wind Technology is dedicated to improving the economic performance of onshore and offshore wind farms by pioneering innovation in the design, manufacture, and operation of wind turbine blades. Our team members have the experience and expertise needed to deliver innovation to products, helping clients solve some of the most pressing needs of the Wind Energy Industry.
We have ambitions to change the way the wind industry thinks about blade and rotor technology, and we are looking for colleagues who are motivated to join us on this exciting journey. We like to take on complex and challenging projects because they give our teams opportunities to truly collaborate, experiment, and innovate. Our team members are comfortable with deep technical analysis, hands on prototyping and testing, and leading cross functional programs. Each team member brings their own unique set of skills, knowledge, and experience to the project, allowing us to work through complex technical projects by applying a principled approach to the design and analysis of wind turbine blades. Our teams are also hands on, fully engaged with lab and factory prototypes, running testing trials, and leading field installation campaigns up-tower. We also use a structured approach based on Six Sigma principles to running projects, and we’re expected to lead teams of colleagues to deliver on business-critical projects for clients.
To help our team grow and tackle new projects, we’re looking for a wind turbine aerodynamics engineer who is excited to tackle new and innovative blade and technology projects. The aerodynamics engineer will help to shape and grow our aerodynamic design and testing capabilities, where you will be leading the development of new and innovative airfoil and blades. Working alongside your colleagues, you will build wind turbine blade aerodynamics models that are coupled with detailed structural, controller, wind, and wave resource models, creating a world class analysis tool-suite.
As a member of Gulf Wind Technology’s Research and Development Team, the Aerodynamics Engineer will play a key role in the aeroelastic design and analysis of new and existing blades. As a member of the engineering team, you will have a variety of opportunities to learn new skills while leading projects for customer, leaning into your own skills and expertise to help the team succeed. At Gulf Wind Technology you will be responsible for:
A successful candidate will possess equal measures of creativity and passion, technical and interpersonal skills, and a drive and willingness to push the boundaries of blade innovation and technology development. The work environment at GWT creates opportunities for collaboration on projects with team members from multiple disciplines and backgrounds, where all perspectives and viewpoints are valued and respected.
