  • Collaborate with research and development teams to identify new testing needs and opportunities.
  • Report results in an extremely clear and concise manner to leadership.
  • Assemble electrolyzer cells in accordance with established specifications and guidelines.
  • Install and monitor cells in test stations to guarantee proper functionality.
  • Execute experiments, collect data, and ensure tests are carried out accurately and on schedule.
  • Record, analyze, and report test results in a timely manner.
  • Code new scripts for the automated operation of test stations.
  • Automate data analysis processes and determine methods by which to improve efficiency.
  • Maintain comprehensive test result databases to ensure accurate record-keeping.
  • Address questions or concerns related to test results as needed.
  • Develop and maintain testing procedures to guarantee accurate and consistent results.
  • Clean and maintain testing equipment, including the recalibration of devices as required.
  • Stay up-to-date with the latest technical and scientific advancements in your field.


Where We Are and What We Offer:

  • This is a full-time position
  • Competitive, negotiable salary
  • Vesting options for equity in a venture-backed, climate-tech startup
  • Health and retirement benefits, with flexible options
