Development Engineer

Turntide Technologies is helping turn the tide on climate change with breakthrough technologies that accelerate electrification and sustainable operations for energy-intensive industries. We develop full-stack, integrated, open systems that support commercial and industrial electric vehicles, building operations, and agriculture to optimize how the world uses energy, so every watt is worthwhile for humanity. We’re looking for curious, intelligent, collaborative people from diverse backgrounds who want to make a real impact on the sustainability of our planet.

The Job

This is an exciting opportunity for an engineer to join a small, fast moving team working on cutting edge electrification technology. The work will include concept and prototype design, through to detailing of products for low, medium and high-volume production.
