Structural Engineer

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 Structural Engineer with a strong affinity with cleantech and who wants to make a sustainable impact.

Your role

You will get a chance to work on challenging problems in a fast-paced environment with direct impact on the product development. Within our collaborative company culture people are proactive, not afraid to move fast and take intellectual risks giving us an opportunity to grow as a team. Your responsibilities will include performing structural calculations, FEA simulations and analysis to support concept development and detailed design work. You will provide input for testing and perform design optimisation based on test results.
