Job Description

Electric Hydrogen’s mission is to create an abundant and decarbonized material future. Our outstanding people are our most important asset and will allow us to deliver hydrogen from renewable electrolysis for heavy industry, at prices below fossil fuels. 

We are searching for a Process Development Engineer to join our Cell Technology Team. This team is responsible for developing cell technologies and novel processes used for manufacturing critical cell components to be deployed in Electric Hydrogen's electrolyzer product. You will be responsible for the ideation, development, and maturation of manufacturing processes. You will be working closely with our manufacturing team to identify manufacturing equipment and bring manufacturing processes from the R&D lab scale all the way to gigawatt production scale. Reporting to our Senior Engineer – Cell Technology, you will work closely with cell design engineers, materials engineers, manufacturing engineers, stack engineers, and supply chain. The ideal candidate should be detail-oriented, self-motivated, and should thrive to drive the process development from concept to scale.

You will be based in Natick, MA, and report to our Senior Engineer – Cell Technology.
