Pedal Power NYC
232 3rd Street
DescriptionLooking for a unique opportunity to work with an arts & tech company in NYC? Want to join a crew of individuals who are solving challenging problems related to the development of original technology, and contributing to a narrative whose messages are focused on renewable energy, clean water, and delivered through the medium of music?
We're working on a multi-faceted project that requires highly efficient power transformation and distribution capability. In short, we've got a bunch of custom bikes generating enough electricity to stage large concerts and studio recordings. By producing inspiring events and assets to raise awareness of sustainability issues, we hope to continue drawing other creatives into the conversation along with us.
We're building our system to be smart – it has dozens of sensors that are tracking state in real-time, reacting as necessary, and logging the data to our our servers. We need to combine the power from all the bikes, buffer it, and make it available as necessary.
ResponsibilitiesThere's a lot to work on, and we're tackling things in manageable, well-defined chunks while the bigger picture evolves in the background. You'll be working with a flexible schedule both on your own and in our workspace at the The Old American Can Factory in Gowanus, Brooklyn. You'll get real-world experienced and work closely with our engineers and designers.
You'll help us build equipment, draw schematics, manage documentation, and use your background in power engineering to collaborate our next generation of designs.
RequirementsAn ideal candidate would have:
- excellent soldering skills and attention to detail
- experience with generators and DC-DC voltage regulation
- basic understanding of layout and schematic software
- hunger to learn and try new things!
