Grab a job in wind energy

Are you seeking a job in wind energy and want to help shape a sustainable and clean future? You have come to the right place!

SkySails was the first com­pany in the world to succeed in har­nes­sing the significant po­ten­tial of high-altitude winds. It all be­gan with the idea of tow­ing car­go ships with a kite. This vi­sion turned into re­ali­ty, and in 2007 SkySails success­fully de­ve­loped the tow­ing kite tech­no­lo­gy in­to an in­dus­trial appli­ca­tion. We be­cam­e a green shipping pio­neer! Up until to­day, we use large and fully au­to­ma­ted kites for eco-friendly shipping and re­new­able power ge­ne­ra­tion. We are driven by the common goal to make the world more sustain­able. Our team of cre­ative minds, inno­va­tive en­gi­neers, and passio­nate soft­ware de­ve­lo­pers play a cen­tral role in making this happen. Over the years, we have grown to over 130 people. We work in a fa­mily at­mos­phere with flat hier­ar­chies, trust, and di­rect commu­ni­ca­tion channels.
