Job Description

Battolyser Systems is looking to recruit a Product Development Project Manager

Welcome to Battolyser Systems, a fast-growing cleantech scale-up company based in The Netherlands. We develop and manufacture products that can store electricity and produce hydrogen from renewable power to balance societal demand in a truly revolutionary way. Let us take you on this journey and show how you can make a difference by joining a fast-growing purpose driven company.

First, some background information on Battolyser Systems. Eight years ago, some really smart people at the Delft University of Technology invented the world’s first integrated battery- and electrolyser system. They named it a ‘Battolyser’ and realized this invention could connect renewable power generation in a revolutionary way with how society will consume energy in a net zero emission world. To make real impact, the technology was spun-out of the Delft University of Technology into a company in 2019 to demonstrate a proof of concept in an industrial setting. And so, Battolyser Systems was born.

Fast forward to today. We have a patented and proven technology, we are commercializing our products and made our first sales. We are starting up our first factory and are planning the fully automated mass manufacturing version to be ready in 2024. Present day we have attracted 50 people and anticipate to double this next year. Our people are amongst the top talents in the renewable energy and hydrogen market, passionate and motivated to make a difference. Knowledgeable, connected and committed are some of the keywords that best describe current leadership. In growing the company we are looking to recruit a Product Development Project Manager to help deliver Always Clean Energy to the world.

About the role:

You are responsible for managing projects related to our Battolyser stack development, reporting to the Head of Projects & Engineering. This role is at the heart of our product development process focusing on the full product lifecycle of our products and interfacing with many other parts of our company, including the technology team, balance of plant engineering, supply chain and operations.

We expect your specific focus in the next 12 months will include:

  • Being responsible for a number of product development projects related to Battolyser stack and moving them through our staged gate design process from research to first production. This will include scoping the projects by defining the requirements as well as being accountable for meeting the timeline within budget.
  • Guide and implement the output from other disciplines, such as mechanical, material, computational fluid dynamics and others into the product design.
  • Identify risks (project, product, people or process) and mitigate them in the most reliable and efficient way working together with the specialist from departments like QC, HSE, Design, etc.
  • Manage the interface with the R&D department to verify product functionality and to implement results into the design iterations.
  • Manage and guide improvement projects from start to implementation.
  • Develop and manage cooperations with partners and suppliers in finding the optimal solution for our product.
  • Ensure interface management between the stack development team and other parts of the organization, including coordination of design reviews and (inter) discipline checks.
  • Propose, develop innovative concepts to increase our competitiveness and maintain standards, templates and tools to drive innovation, secure quality and cost effectiveness.
  • Maintain a safe and healthy environment for people in your team(s) and emphasize company values and personal growth.

We value autonomy and you will have lots of freedom, with that we expect you to take initiative and ownership of your role. You will work with an international team of fun and bright colleagues with professional backgrounds in various top companies and institutes, check us out at

Who are you:

At Battolyser Systems we have a shared mission: we will enable ‘Always Clean Energy’ for the world. We don’t just talk about the energy transition; we want to fix it and we expect you to feel the same way. We believe that, in order to be successful in this role, you need at least 10 years of relevant experience. You have extensive experience in industrial product development, ideally for mass-manufacturing products which operate in a hazardous environment and know what it takes to bring a high quality product to market. You have managed multidisciplinary teams before and are able to thrive in a fast-changing environment and can deal with a lot of uncertainty in many different fronts. You strive in an environment of growth that comes with continuous change and ambiguity. Lastly, you appreciate that this growth brings great personal development opportunities but also requires great teamwork and dedication to peak workloads at times.
