At Antora, we’re on a mission to stop climate change and we can’t do that unless we tackle the 30% of global emissions that come from industry.

Antora is manufacturing thermal batteries that bridge the gap between renewable power and industrial production. Antora’s batteries store energy from renewables as heat for days on end, delivering that stored energy as heat and power at the scale and temperatures that large industrial operations demand. We’re on a path to eliminate gigatons of emissions while increasing U.S. energy security, strengthening domestic manufacturing, and protecting marginalized communities from industrial pollution.

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 committed to continue building a diverse, passionate, and creative team dedicated to a future where every industrial facility, everywhere on earth, is powered by abundant, low-cost, zero-emissions energy.

Position Summary

This is a critical leadership 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. Develop and analyze new markets, and help drive policy efforts to expand these markets.

  • Oversee product management
    • Gather and prioritize a set of product and customer requirements for current and future products / product applications
    • Create processes for generating and maintaining a set of product documentation (e.g., MRDs, PRDs, product datasheets, etc.)
    • Develop techno-economic tools that can be used by engineering teams to explore design tradeoffs and sensitivities
  • Be the internal voice of the customer to guide engineering decisions
  • Provide policy support to Antora’s policy team to unlock market and product opportunities.
