Asset Commissioning Engineer/Project Manager

Raleigh (On-site)
Applications are considered on a rolling basis


Edged is at the forefront of data center infrastructure development and innovation. We are actively seeking a dedicated Asset Commissioning Engineer/Project Manager to play a pivotal role in our North American operations, and occasionally, in our international ventures. This position offers the unique opportunity to work directly under the Director of Energy Markets, Project Management, and Site Selection, ensuring the seamless operation of our expanding data centers and power generation technologies.

The Asset Commissioning Engineer/Project Manager is responsible for managing the relationship and timeline with utilities and air permitting boards for utility service and operation of our data centers and generation. These job responsibilities currently pertain to North America but on occasion may also involve our multinational operations.

We are looking for someone who has a track record of managing multiple projects with different timelines and goals, evidence of ability to communicate clearly, effectively, and concisely and previous work experience communicating and working with both regulated and de-regulated utility companies.

Our team operates with a two-pronged approach: the Development team (comprising Dev team and managers) and the Utility team (spanning across Fiber, gas, and Power units).

The evolving power dynamics in the US necessitates innovative solutions. With surging power demands from avenues like electric cars, there's an unprecedented challenge and opportunity ahead. As Edged expands, our focus on power solidifies, ensuring this role is central to our growth. The selected individual will not only lead current operations but will also be instrumental in shaping the future direction of our company.

Candidates from a utilities background with roughly a decade of experience will find this role particularly tailored to their expertise. Primacy in the interview process will be given to those who are also both “business fluent” in Spanish and familiar with energy markets in Spain or another Western European country.  However, if you believe you're the right fit but don't check every box, we encourage you to apply. At Edged, it's not just about the qualifications—it's about passion, innovation, and a shared vision for the future. Join us in reshaping the industry.
