Software engineer

Company

Victron Energy was founded in 1975 by Reinout Vader. Victron designs and sells inverters, chargers and more related power conversion products. The company has 60 employees, which includes 25 R&D engineers. We are a technology focused and sales driven company, and to stay leading, we rely on a strong R&D team. Most products contain software, and lately more and more of our unique features are in software. Most of the programming done at Victron Energy is in embedded C and related to real-time, control-loops, communication protocols and or user interfaces. The company structure is flat: management is done by Reinout and Matthijs Vader, and everybody reports directly to one of both.

 

Way of working

A typical software project is run from start till end by one software engineer. You will be responsible for your own work, from concept and architectural choices up to testing and finally tagging your release code and binaries. The flat organization gives a lot of freedom but also requires a high level of professionalism and autonomy. 

 

Main technologies used

  • C, C++, QT, Python, QML
  • Canbus, RS-485, TTL / Serial communication

 

Example projects

Below two projects are chosen to show the variety in our software design work. On one hand, the Color Control GX, with a powerfull ARM processor, Embedded linux, and running several applications. And on the other hand a very small and low cost MPPT, no operating system, and direct-fet drive technology.

Mehr Leistung

Zwei Wechselstrom-Eingänge mit integriertem Umschalter. Der Quattro kann mit zwei unhabhängigen Wechselstromquellen verbunden werden: z.B. ein Landanschluss und ein Generator oder zwei Generatoren. Der Quattro wählt automatisch die aktive Quelle.

Der neue Quattro: Mehr Leistung

Zwei Wechselstromausgänge

Alle Quattro- und einige Multi-Wechselrichter/Ladegeräte haben jetzt zwei Wechselstromausgänge. Zusätzlich zu dem standardmäßigen unterbrechungsfreien Ausgang ist nun ein weiterer Ausgang verfügbar, der die angeschlossene Last während des Batteriebetriebs abschaltet. Dies stellt zum Beispiel eine geeignete Lösung dar, um zu verhindern, dass ein elektrischer Wassererhitzer die Batterie entlädt.

Neuer Quattro. Neuer Multiplus. Zwei Wechselstromausgänge
