Fullstack Job Details

Do you want to be part of a revolutionary new company developing products based on a patented technology that can reduce society’s reliance on fossil fuels by creating a new kind of clean fuel?

If yes, you may be the perfect candidate to join us at AlumaPower, a well funded cleantech start-up based in Southern Ontario, Canada.

AlumaPower’s breakthrough technology re-invents the aluminum-air battery as a ‘galvanic engine’ – an innovative long-life energy source that runs on recycled aluminum as a fuel. It produces only water vapour and heat as emitted by-products, while providing at least 4 times the energy density of lithium-ion batteries.

You will be an exceptional Applications Engineer and will be involved in designing Real Time IIoT and IOT Systems, System Security, Cloud Connectivity, Embedded Systems Design, and related hardware and major software components.

You will help cultivate innovation by driving cross-collaboration and the execution of projects across multiple business units – this will involve you mentoring and working closely with other members of the AlumaPower team, specifically with mechanical, electrical, chemical, fabrication, testing, and software engineers.

You may also be required to assist in finding suppliers and, at times, procuring components for the project, fabricating parts, and potentially, assisting in the development of grant/research funding proposals.
