Electrical-Embedded Engineer

This innovative PEMFC business is challenging the energy sector with its innovative fuel cell technology to disrupt conventional sources of power - are you the right person to join their dynamic and growing team?

This business is developing cutting-edge fuel cell technology for heavy duty mobility and large-scale stationary power applications. Their uniquely redesigned product is a significantly more compact fuel cell with high power density, greater efficiencies and lower costs of production. Faced with the challenges of climate change and the transition to a decentralized energy system, they seek to provide high performance and cost-effective fuel cell solutions to their clients and partners. To help achieve our vision of a decarbonised future we are seeking a highly talented and motivated electrical-embedded engineer with strong background in fuel cells.
