Job Description

Antora Energy is electrifying heavy industry with zero-carbon heat and power. We make it possible and profitable to fully rely on renewable energy for industrial processes.

Antora Energy's thermal energy storage soaks up excess solar and wind electricity and uses it to heat blocks of carbon so they glow like inside a toaster (but very bright!). This thermal energy is then delivered to customers as electricity or industrial process heat up to 1500°C, on demand. In short, Antora Energy turns sunshine and wind into 24/7 heat and power, cheaper than fossil fuels.

Our future hinges on heavy industry. Antora Energy’s technology eliminates the need to burn fossil fuels for industrial heat and power, the biggest source of greenhouse gasses on earth.

We are growing our company with people who put team and mission first, value connection through laughter and joy, and build with humility and openness. We are a high-growth start-up backed by industry-leading investors in our category. People join our team to do the most fulfilling and impactful work of their lives on climate change.

Position Summary

This is a critical role within the commercialization team to accelerate the productization of our thermal energy storage technology.  Work as the bridge between business and engineering by owning key internal communications around market and product requirements. Help define go-to-market strategies by developing product roadmaps that will unlock new business opportunities.

  • Own the development of a product roadmap and product release schedule, setting the vision for future products and applications. 
  • Organize and lead quarterly product goal setting meetings and product quality reviews. 
  • Participate in sprint planning meetings and standups as needed. 
  • Explore new markets and opportunities to find creative solutions for emerging problems (e.g., how can our core technology be used to decarbonize cement?)
  • Test products’ effectiveness and collect user feedback.

Key Qualifications

  • 3+ years of experience in a product manager role working on bringing new industrial hardware products to market
  • Familiarity with new energy technology
  • Familiarity with energy economics
