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.

The activities of the Logistics & Production Employee relate to the receipt, administration, storage, collection, and preparation of goods/products. You are responsible for the logistics process with associated logistics administration and incoming goods quality inspection. You ensure the right things are in the right place at the right time. Next to logistics, you can diversify your activities within Production. You already prepare production orders by picking orders on schedule but, where necessary, will assist the production team in running high-quality production orders. Besides supporting the Production Engineer with the logistics, materials, and stock management for the production room, you can contribute to the fabrication and assembling of parts for the MEA (the membrane electrode assembly, the heart of Elestor's revolutionary flow battery system). The Elestor team is growing from 50 to 100 within one-and-a-half years; the role of Logistics & Production Employee provides the opportunity to shape this position within a growing production organization in your own creative and innovative way and comes with multiple options for internal growth (for example, develop internally into a role as Logistics Manager).
Tasks and responsibilities
- Accepting, receiving, and checking incoming goods/products
- Storing goods/products and administrating them into the system
- Setting up and managing the storage facility (warehouse)
- Monitoring stocks in warehouse inventory, production room, and the workshop
- Preparing and issuing shipments of goods/products from and to suppliers
- Initiate improvements in the logistics processes
- Support production engineering in multiple ways
The ideal candidate has logistics experience and a high affinity with technical and/or production environments. You enjoy using your experience into setting up your (logistics) shop within Elestor. Still, you also like to be the all-round professional in the operations department, in which you show pro-active and pragmatic behavior. People describe you as precise and structured but also as a team player with a positive mindset, able to be flexible when the situation demands it. You love fast-paced and changing environments, and your co-workers praise you for your independence and self-starting attitude.
Education, skills and experience
- You love logistics! Possibly you have completed MBO 4 training with a focus on logistics and/or in a technical discipline
- You have at least two years of demonstrable experience in logistics, preferably in a technical or production environment
- You know what it takes to work safely in a high-tech and chemical production company (e.g., following safety procedures, handling (raw) materials delicately)
