Powerhive is a technology company based in the San Francisco Bay area that has developed a unique hardware and software platform to remotely manage and monetise energy stations, and uses this technology to deploy pay-as-you-go rural electrification systems.

We are looking for either an experienced technical writer, or a young, skilled, energetic electrical engineer or software developer to join our team of Kenyan, American, and European engineers and staff in the field, deploying our systems.  

Your role will be to learn our hardware and software installation process and service inside and out, and develop documentation. You will work closely with senior software developers, electrical engineers, and embedded designers in Kenya as they deploy our systems. Excellent communication (spoken and written) is critical. Experience developing technical documentation is a big plus.  Initial responsibilities will be technical documentation, but additional electrical engineering, software related, or other technical responsibilities may also be assigned, depending on the applicant's skill set.
