Careers

Testimonials

WavEC is part of an important period of my professional career, where I gained several skills in different technological areas, general management and Human Resources management, where I was always encouraged to pursuit for new challenges. I can say that are few companies where you can find a group of people so united and competent, performing innovative projects with such close relation with the industry.

Pedro Pires
Aluno de ATPL/Antigo coordenador de área de Tecnologia

Trabalhar no WavEC foi uma experiência muito enriquecedora dado que tive a oportunidade de aprender sobre um sector em franco crescimento - as energias renováveis no mar. Tive também a oportunidade de participar em diversos estudos de avaliação de incidências ambientais no mar, onde participei em diferentes campanhas de recolha de dados no mar. Participei em vários projetos Europeus e tive a possibilidade de conhecer de perto o funcionamento de várias instituições de investigação europeias, os seus investigadores e as metodologias que são postas em prática nestes centros.

Inês Machado
Estudante de Doutoramento na Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa

I started as an intern at the WavEC and ended up staying for 5 more years. WavEC is an excellent place for a young professional. It gives you all the space and freedom to learn and explore your strength and weaknesses. I had the opportunity to go to different conference, workshops and courses all over Europe. This gave me a broad perspective of the wave energy industry all over the world and also to have a huge network of people from all over the world. Without WavEC I wouldn’t be the person that I am today.

I liked the lovely small group of passionate colleagues about renewables with a mixed profile and age and very high dedication of work

Philipp Quante
Senior Business Development Manager at Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy

A Operação&Manutenção da Central de Ondas do Pico foi um grande desafio: uma instalação pioneira, com tecnologia inovadora, e instalada num local de extremos.

Recordo a experiência como um privilégio, pelas características únicas do projecto e pelo suporte que tive por parte do WavEC.

São projectos como este, nobres no objetivo e arrojados na implementação, que deixam a sua marca no progresso cientifico.

Mark Araújo
Bosch / Antigo Técnico Central do Pico

WavEC gave me a lot of freedom to peruse my work and research interests and were always supportive of new initiatives. I was also given opportunities to collaborate on other projects outside of my primary remit which helped broaden my skills set.
