About the Role

DESCRIPTION

We are seeking an exceptional Mechanical Engineer to help our team build and deploy new data centres. Our data centres have been reimagined and engineered to leverage highly efficient liquid cooling that run using highly mechanical systems and processes. The backbone of our success is based on our world-class data centre infrastructure that delivers performance, high reliability, efficiency with integration of emerging technologies.

Joining the Denvr Dataworks team means that you are a highly capable individual, encouraged by forward-thinking, learning and innovation. You are organized and you have practical and effective communication and inter-personal skills. You are also a self-motivated and effective problem solver, and you take pride in doing a good job and achieving great results. You persevere through, and learn from, unexpected results, and you thrive and succeed in a hyper-growth environment where priorities and plans can shift quickly. You love the idea of being part of a team, early on, where you are with a group of equally talented peers and you are motivated to use your exceptional abilities to help drive an exciting business forward.


As a Mechanical Engineer you will work directly with the Director – Data Centre Infrastructure to design and implement Data Centre infrastructure with a focus on performance, scalability, efficiency, and reliability.


You will innovate, design, engineer and manage the mechanical scope of new Data Centre projects and business initiatives (design, engineering, procurement, manufacturing, construction, deployment, commissioning and operations) and you will also research, test, innovate, design, develop, engineer, iterate and improve the mechanical scope of existing Data Centre infrastructure as our company grows and evolves.
