Senior Project Engineer, Madrid, Spain

Bright Sunday’s business is to make the cleantech transformation easy and profitable for commercial and industrial customers. We invest in a solar PV system installed at the customer’s property and offer the customer solar as a service with zero upfront investments and savings from day one. Our customers only pay for electricity produced at a flat cost per kWh on a 10-25 year contract. 

Bright Sunday, founded in Sweden 2016, currently owns and operates 50+ solar PV systems with a total installed effect of close to 20 MW in Spain and Portugal. 

We buy system design and construction at a fixed price from local EPC partners. It is of utmost importance we make sure EPCs/subcontractors act professionally and deliver quality installations on time and specification.

When the PV system is commissioned, Bright Sunday takes care of system operations (real-time monitoring using 3rd party products), system check-ups and preventive maintenance. System failure or suboptimal performance will trigger alarms and we use external partners for cleaning and major corrective maintenance.

Bright Sunday has a small but highly skilled and professional team. The company language is English. To grow our business fast and with good risk control it is critical to approach work in a structured way, to foster a performance culture with individual accountability and maintain a work environment that is open, friendly, motivating and supportive.
