Job description

Are you looking for a challenging internship with a great deal of independence and responsibility and you have a technical background? And do you get warmed up by the solar energy sector?

Eternal Sun Group is dynamic, fun, young, and every day proudly contributing to a better world! We produce high-value solar testing equipment for the measurement of solar panels. In January 2018 we began with offering a solar panel testing service for downstream clients in our first testing laboratory in the Maasvlakte. A strategic location with 25% of all incoming solar panels entering the European Market through here. This new concept is exceptionally important to our company, as our ambition is to have it represent a significant part of the total turnover of the company within a few years.


For this location, we are now looking for an entrepreneurial Intern Solar Testing Engineer who will be responsible for executing tests in the laboratory together with a team of operators. If you bring the experience, the passion and the ability to learn rapidly, Eternalsun Spire will provide a training program to ensure you will merge into the role smoothly. Our training program consists of an in-depth introduction to the solar industry and our testing methods.
