About The Company

Powin Energy is a leading producer of utility scale modular battery energy storage system (complete with a patented, advanced, cloud-based monitoring/control system). That means we build power plants out of batteries that put coal and gas generators out of business and enable sustainable viability for renewable energy sources like solar and wind.

Powin is, and will continue to be, one of a handful of companies that will provide the equipment necessary to make this happen. Powin has distinct competitive advantages: cost-effectiveness; reliability; scalability; deploy-ability; and operational sophistication. Every day we work to ensure that we maintain these competitive advantages and our position as a global leader in providing turnkey, battery energy storage solutions for utility-scale, commercial and industrial, and microgrid applications.


Powin is looking for an experienced and well-rounded manager for our Software Architecture team. In this role, you will be responsible for leading the team that is creating and maintaining the internal and system architecture for our software products. This position reports to the VP of Software Engineering and will work directly with Powin’s CTO to incorporate strategic changes into the overall architecture. Candidates must have deep knowledge of software architectures, their relationship to internal hardware constraints, and high-performance distributed system design.

Job Details:

  • Manage a small and growing team of software architects
  • Mentor junior staff and provide valuable input on complex architectural problems
  • Perform periodic staff evaluations and make staffing recommendations
  • Provide architectural leadership by collaborating with technical product managers and software developers to create and maintain software product architecture within applications and at the system level
  • Work with the CTO to align software architecture with longer term technology strategy
  • Utilize the concepts of Lean Software Development to appropriately limit scope and manage complexity
  • Participate in the planning process to help set implementation estimates and work sequencing
  • Produce and maintain architectural artifacts such as drawings, documents, and code


  • 10 – 15 years’ experience in software development
  • 5 – 7 years’ experience as a Software Architect
  • 3+ years’ experience managing 3-5 engineers and/or architects
  • Demonstrated management skills
  • Experience working with streaming system architectures (e.g., message busses, distributed caches, etc.)
  • Experience with SaaS solutions, preferably on AWS
  • Solid understanding of Java internals (JRE, JVM, GC, threading/work stealing, etc.) and its relationship to underlying hardware (execution pipelines, L1/L2 caches, and memory, storage, and network I/O)
  • Solid understanding of modern UI architectures, such as MVC
  • Firm understanding of cyber security threats and mitigations
  • Experience with energy systems and protocols (SCADA, Modbus, etc.), is a plus
  • Experience with embedded systems development is a plus
  • Experience with real-time (streaming) UI via web APIs is a plus
  • Remote position, with monthly travel to our Tualatin office near Portland, Oregon
