Job Description

Remora is hiring an Electrical Technician  who will work closely with our testing and development team. The Electrical Tech will help wire build harnesses and help run testing for the controls and electronics team all while helping to tackle the defining challenge of our time.
We’re a 50-person climate tech startup based in Detroit, MI. We build a device that captures a semi-truck’s carbon emissions directly from the tailpipe. We sell the CO2 to end-users, and split that revenue with our customers, so our device pays for itself in just a couple years. 
We’re piloting our technology with some of the largest companies in the world, including three of the Fortune 10, and we’ve raised multiple rounds of funding from leading investors like Lowercarbon Capital, Union Square Ventures, and First Round Capital.

Job Description:

  • Assembling, evaluating and testing electrical circuits and systems
  • Working with engineers to troubleshoot electrical and electromechanical issues
  • Constructing and fabricating wiring harnesses, using hand tools and speciality crimpers
  • Identifying opportunities for possible improvements in electrical implementation and assembly processes
  • Altering harnesses
  • Reading and interpreting electrical diagrams and schematics and documenting changes
  • Assisting with other miscellaneous tasks in the workshop (like fabricating, drilling, sawing, etc.)


  • Experience with automotive or related electrical distribution systems, cable and wire harness development and creation
  • Experience operating hand and power tools, electrical tools, fault-testing equipment, hand soldering
  • Good communication skills
  • Excellent problem-solving skills

Desired Skills:

  • Certified in IPC/WHMA -A-620 standards for harness manufacture

  • You want to join a fast-paced, fast-growing startup.
  • You care deeply about reducing carbon emissions and building power for the historically excluded communities that will be most affected by those emissions.
  • You fully own projects, and you identify and solve problems through completion.
  • You adapt to change and you appreciate failures as learning opportunities, constructively sharing them with your teammates.
  • You improve your teammates’ performance through collaboration. You consistently pursue personal and professional growth for yourself and your teammates.
  • You voice respectful disagreement and provide high-quality constructive feedback. You’re an effective and active listener, and a clear and concise communicator.


  • Location: Wixom, MI and/ or Livonia, MI
  • Start date: Immediately
  • COVID-19: Remora requires all employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Applicants are required to submit proof of vaccination prior to beginning employment. Appropriate COVID-19 safety precautions are implemented in the workplace.

  • Four weeks of paid time off
  • Dependent care assistance (childcare or eldercare)
  • Parental leave
  • Unlimited sick and compassionate leave
  • Employee development and coaching
  • Relocation stipend (Up to $9000)

Climate change disproportionately impacts communities of color, so we’re looking for candidates deeply committed to reducing emissions and to racial justice. People who identify as Black, Indigenous, person of color, female, non-binary, trans, gender non-conforming, or any other identity underrepresented in startups are especially encouraged to apply.
Research shows that women and people of color are less likely to think they are qualified for a position after reading a list of requirements like the one above. If you are worried that you are not qualified, please apply anyway! We’re most excited to work with people who learn quickly and want to tackle the climate crisis.
