Elestor has a job opportunity for an: Engineering Manager

Do you want to power the energy transition?

Are you a team player; ready, able and willing to take on varied and complex challenges?

As one of the most innovative and fast-growing companies in The Netherlands, Elestor offers exciting and competitive career opportunities with plenty of scope for both personal and professional development.

Elestor's Mission & Relevance

Imagine a world without polluting power plants, powered purely by clean electricity.

This world is closer than you think. The sun and the wind are powerful enough, and so are the technologies to harvest their energy. However, possibilities to store renewable energy (sustainably, cost-effectively) are lacking; Long-Duration Electricity Storage (LDES) is ‘’the missing link’’ in the energy transition.

It is Elestor’s mission to cut the cost of electricity storage. We develop large-scale, cost-effective HBr storage technologies that are carbon neutral and durable, thereby unifying the interests of the planet, people, and business profitability.
