Our purpose is to realise a more sustainable future. We believe that the mix of existing energy solutions for zero-emission is incomplete. So we are developing the TidalKite, a revolutionary underwater kite that captures the steady energy of the tides.

To achieve our mission of making tidal kite energy a mainstream solution within a decade, we are looking for a marketing and communication professional who wants to make a sustainable impact.

Purpose-driven and strategic, you will seize opportunities, think critically about the best approaches, and execute the necessary tasks to make them happen.

You will contribute to the execution and refinement of our marketing communication strategy, creating brand-consistent content and campaigns for various media channels and purposes. Your work will be diverse, and you will take ownership of your responsibilities. An energetic self-starter with a proactive mindset will thrive in this role.

About SeaQurrent

Seven years ago, we embarked on a journey to revolutionise clean energy with the development of TidalKite. This scalable, safe, and eco-friendly energy solution has undergone several iterations, and we are now in the process of refining our fourth model, set to be demonstrated near Ameland.

Our innovative kite technology 'flies' through the current perpendicular to the flow, harnessing an impressive lift force that is converted into electricity through a state-of-the-art power-take-off system. What sets our technology apart is its wide deployment potential, making it applicable for power generation on multiple locations across the globe.
