About us

At Weheat, we're not just about heating - we're redefining it. By completely rethinking the way heat pumps are designed, we create innovative products that are both environmentally friendly and highly efficient. As creators of the Blackbird and Sparrow, cutting-edge heat pumps, we are at the forefront of heating technology and are truly making an impact. Our goal is to develop products that not only meet but exceed current environmental standards and that make sense, ensuring a greener future for all.

Our philosophy is simple: empower our people to harness their passions. By cutting down on redundant meetings and sidestepping micromanagement, we open up a world where you can fully perform in your expertise. At Weheat, growth is not just encouraged—it's expected. We encourage a community that supports and challenges, enabling each member to exceed expectations and make daring moves towards our collective goal of making an impact.

The job

Weheat heat pumps have an inverter + compressor subsystem that moves and compresses the refrigerant to reallocate thermal energy and create heating and cooling.To improve this subsystem for new generations of heat pumps, its key performance parameters and how these are influenced by various load and environmental conditions, must be further explored. This graduation assignment aims to develop an inverter-compressor model that can be used to create even more efficient and cost-effective heat pumps in the future.

  • Develop  a universal model of the inverter + compressor subsystem such that predictions can be made about the subsystem’s efficiency, control loop stability, lifetime, EMC performance and other key performance parameters.
  • Develop a comprehensive setup to measure the key performance parameters.
  • Populate and verify the above model using practical measurements on the “Blackbird” and “Sparrow” heat pumps.
  • Take part in rolling out inverter + compressor optimizations on the “Blackbird” and “Sparrow” heat pumps.
  • Recommend improvements that can be rolled out for new generations of heat  pumps.


  • Bachelor or Master study with solid foundation in control theory and power electronics.
  • Proficient in high level programming languages like Python.
  • An analytical and problem-solving mindset, motivated to tackle and master technical challenges.
  • Independent in your work, coupled with the ability to collaborate effectively in a multidisciplinary team.
