Mechanical Design Engineer

The Role

 

H2U Technologies aims to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy by making real the promise of a clean energy future powered by hydrogen by driving innovation in green hydrogen across many industries Including transportation, power generation, steel, chemicals, agriculture, and others.

 To meet this goal, H2U Technologies is constantly innovating best in class products and services through introduction of pioneering electrocatalyst discovery technology combined with the manufacture of a new generation of electrolyzers.

To build this clean future, H2U Technologies is seeking a hardworking, passionate, and experienced hydrogen electrolyzer component and manufacturing engineer as a key member of the team.  The role includes the specification of power electronics and gas handling and system cooling components including vendor and partner selection and procurement of pre-production materials towards the development of systems, processes, and manufacturability of component-based hydrogen production.  This would include the development and testing of electrolyzers systems, purchasing and installing equipment, design for manufacturability, and making improvements to current operations to enhance efficiency.  Electrolyzer or Fuel Cell Design Experience a Major Plus!

Requirements
  • Electrolyzer or Fuel Cell Design Experience a Major Plus!

  • 3+ to 5 years of experience in a manufacturing environment

  • 4-year degree required, in Electrical, Electronic, Mechanical and or Electro-Mechanical Engineer preferred

  • The solid knowledge base in electrolyzer balance of the plant equipment and components and manufacturing processes

  • Hands-on approach to design, procurement, and the manufacturing of products

  • Strong project management skillset

  • Proactive, ability to think in an overall business and financial manner

  • Motivated self-starter who can manage multiple tasks

  • Be able to work under pressure and as business needs

  • High level of proficiency in Microsoft Office applications, Solidworks, AutoCAD, and statistical software

About H2U

 

H2U Technologies is a unique company that is using electrocatalyst discovery technology combined with the manufacture of a new generation of electrolyzers to accelerate Green Hydrogen production. Our mission is to make real the promise of a clean energy future powered by hydrogen by driving innovation in clean energy from green hydrogen in power generation, transportation, energy, metals, chemicals, construction, and others that comprise the vast majority of carbon emitting industries. 

 

Our company was co-founded by Motus Ventures and H2U Chief Science Advisor, Dr Nathan Lewis, the George L. Argyros Professor of Chemistry at the California Institute of Technology. Nate was the founding Director and Scientific Director of the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis at Caltech, where he was the Principal Investigator on the winning $122 Million award from the DOE for research and study of groundbreaking catalysts for clean hydrogen generation.

 

Current technology for creating hydrogen depends on rare, expensive precious metals as the catalysts for producing clean hydrogen and converting it to clean power. To deal with the limitations of those technologies, H2U electrocatalyst discovery is an unprecedented, proprietary, end-to-end ultrahigh throughput AI and data-driven process focused on discovery of new catalysts for generation of clean hydrogen and fuel cell power production.  The process prepares, characterizes, and quantifies the catalytic activity of millions of compositions per month and then closes the loop with big data analysis and AI to refine/guide the search.

 

Similarly, current electrolyzer technology is complex and expensive. H2U’s response is the Gramme 50 GS series PEM Electrolyzer, a novel and disruptive design, made to drive rapid and large-scale adoption of grid scale electrolysis.

 

We offer the opportunity to help shape the future of clean energy in a dynamic hydrogen startup, a lot of responsibility, creative freedom, flat hierarchies and great colleagues. If you are as excited about Green Hydrogen as we are, joining our team could be something for you!
