Job DescriptionJob Description

Become a Senior Engineer 2, Energy Efficiency (EE) at Southern California Edison (SCE) and build a better tomorrow. In this job, you’ll support SCE’s portfolio of EE programs. These programs have multi-million-dollar budgets and incentivize to adopt energy efficient measures (e.g., heat pumps) or behaviors to deliver energy savings. Within these programs, a set of EE projects, known as Deemed projects, require the creation of the measure package that optimizes the installation process and sets the energy savings, which is then used to calculate savings in all future projects involving that measure. You will have ultimate accountability over work that is vital for successful EE Deemed programs, such as work-papers describing a measure package and checklists for reviewing customer submission of EE measure installations, are complete, accurate, and clear. You will act as the key touchpoint for 3rd party vendors and internal SCE teams for questions surrounding engineering and QA/QC processes, whether it be clarifications on measure work-papers or discussions on installation review. The Senior Engineer 2, as both a high-level reviewer of the other Deemed QA/QC Engineers’ work and a key contact from all partners concerning the Deemed QA/QC workstream, will need strong multi-functional collaboration skills, highly proficient technical capabilities and engineering experience, a capable business sense that can translate technical requirements into operational actions, and the ability to manage and prioritize contending asks from external teams.

As a Senior Engineer 2, your work will help power our planet, reduce carbon emissions and create cleaner air for everyone. Are you ready to take on the challenge to help us build the future?
