What We offer

We are owned by the employees and offer a route into ownership for all new staff

Real impact: We work with some of the biggest brands in the energy sector. We are regularly asked to share our thought leadership at the sector’s top conferences. You could be at the heart of this: conducting analysis which informs major investment and policy decisions

Exposure: We work with clients ranging from multinational banks to international investors to community energy groups. You will be exposed to the wide range of projects financed and developed by these clients and you’ll work closely with them to address new challenges and opportunities at each turn

A fast-growth environment: We set up shop with 6 partners in September 2015. Now we’re 80 strong and counting, based across the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Ireland, Portugal, Australia & Singapore

The flattest of flat organisations: Let’s be upfront: if you thrive on hierarchy and structure, Everoze isn’t the company for you. But if you are looking for a work environment where the strength of your ideas are valued as much as your years of experience, then welcome home. You’ll be given the freedom and autonomy to shape your own career; it’s not for everyone, and with freedom comes responsibility – but we sure enjoy the buzz of owning our own careers

What you will be doing

Your main role will be to work on R&D projects related to our activities in the field of solar energy in France and around the world

Photovoltaic technology is changing rapidly and we have to adapt to different photovoltaic module technologies, different installations and climate change. The objective is to improve the working tools that Everoze uses in order to validate our internal hypotheses for the energy production assessment (EPA) studies

More specifically, you will work on

  • Update the weather database and benchmark to better understand the weather parameters
    • Basic parameters (GHI, GTI, Temp…)
    • Secondary parameters (Snow, wind, humidity…)
  • Comparison of weather data with on-site data using basic parameters (uncertainty analysis)
  • Tools development with potential creation of Python script integrating
    • Snow analysis
    • Soiling analysis
  • Integration of these tools to PVsyst which is the basic tool in the photovoltaic industry
  • Carry out production studies using PVsyst on project

We will appreciate your proactivity and will listen to your proposals on the approaches to adopt, methods to implement and the subjects to be covered during your internship. In these tasks, you will work with different people from the Everoze team in France but also with colleagues from our other teams

We would like to hear from you if you meet the following requirements

  • Analytical ability: You enjoy and have an aptitude for Excel and coding (Python, SQL)
  • Passion to be part of the energy transition: The energy sector is in transition; you want to speed this up
  • Hunger to develop and learn: You want to use the knowledge from your degree to date and to develop a broader set of skills during your internship
  • Free thinking: You love the intellectual thrill of working to your own solution but also the team-bonding that comes from interactive problem-solving

Essential skills and qualifications

  • Final year of a master’s degree in Engineering, Engineering School or similar
  • Native/fluent in French and English (spoken and written)
  • Knowledge of Python (essential). Experience in databases (SQL) or Machine Learning would be a plus
