Social Impact Project for DevOps Engineer to Bring Affordable Solar Energy to Bangladesh


How This Works

In the MovingWorlds Institute Global Fellowship, you will learn how to advance your for-good career while getting hands on experience on projects like this one.

Project Description and Impact

Our social enterprise has created a revolutionary new approach to bring affordable solar electricity to the energy poor areas in remote, rural off-grid communities in Bangladesh, India and beyond. Building upon the success of an installation base of five million solar home systems (SHS) in Bangladesh that generates an excess amount of energy worth US$ 1 billion per year that cannot be stored by individual systems, we are pioneering a micro-energy transition model.

In this model we interconnect solar home systems into smart peer-to-peer micro-grids, monetizing (excess) solar energy along the value chain with mobile money in real time and empowering rural communities to earn a direct income from the sun. It is the precursor of the ‘swarm’ approach for sustainable rural electrification. The world’s first solar peer-to-peer grid which has significant entrepreneurial benefits for all Solar Home System (SHS) users in remote and rural areas in Bangladesh and India where main grid electricity is currently unavailable.

We're looking for an expert who enjoys the challenges of DevOps on IoT enabled service to support our mission and grow along with us. Our DevOps engineers work side-by-side with our core software engineers, data engineers, firmware engineers, hardware engineers, data analyst, operations, product as well as the our partners like AWS, TTP to design and develop cutting edge product, solutions and deploy them to the remote areas across the country. You will be a part of a team that is a technology pioneer.
