Director of Engineering
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, enthusiastic, and experienced Director of Engineering with hydrogen electrolyzer or fuel cell experience, as a key member of the team. The role includes directing and managing the electrolyzer development team and working across functions with the catalyst discovery team and the manufacturing programs.
The role will include involvement in component specification, selection, vendor and partner selection, and procurement of pre-production materials towards the development of electrolyzer systems. The candidate will work with the electrolyzer design team and suggest improvements to ensure cost effective manufacturability. Electrolyzer or fuel cell design experience is a requirement!
The role will be operated from our facilities in Chatsworth, CA in the Los Angeles Basin.
5+ years of engineering and development team management experience
Direct experience with hydrogen electrolyzers and/or fuel cell development a requirement
Strong program management, planning, and scheduling skillset
Systems engineering experience with energy systems
Experience with collaboration with product management and manufacturing teams
Knowledge of the stack, balance of plant equipment, and components in electrolyzer systems
Hands-on approach to requirements specification for the procurement and the manufacturing of products
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
Ability to guide, prioritize and execute own efforts with minimal direct supervision
Electrolyzer or fuel cell design experience is a requirement!
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.
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. We are well funded and offer exceptional employee benefits for a startup company. If you are as excited about Green Hydrogen as we are, joining our team could be something for you!
