INTRO

With the energy market in transition, electronic systems must be made able to handle this innovative leap. Spectral, a renewable energy and technology start-up in Amsterdam, is looking for Embedded system and electrical engineering interns to strengthen their tech team. If you can bring skills and enthusiasm, we can offer the opportunity to be a part of a game-changing organisation working on communal energy blockchain, high-performance microgrids and much, much more.

Spectral develops technological solutions that unlock the value of energy storage, demand flexibility, and locally produced renewable energy, propelling the evolution of smart energy networks. Our mission is to accelerate the global transition towards 100% renewable, clean energy supply. We believe that one of the most urgent issues is to solve the challenges for providing for our energy needs in a sustainable way. Not only is access to energy essential for high quality of life, but virtually everything is reliant on an input of energy. Our long-term vision is to develop scalable solutions that will revolutionize the way we provide for all of our core resources, focusing on the key areas needed for leading a healthy and fruitful life: energy, water, sanitation, food, shelter, and resource recovery.
