Electrical Research and Development Engineer

GeoPura’s mission is to decarbonise global economies using zero-emission fuels and financially sustainable, innovative technologies to end our reliance on fossil fuels. At GeoPura we understand the scale of the challenge, we are on a journey towards net-zero and how we get there is equally as important as the destination. As a business we are: Innovative, Collaborative, Agile, Sustainable, Protective

GeoPura’s initial focus has been off-grid, temporary and back-up power, essentially diesel generator displacement, using low-carbon hydrogen via GeoPura’s proprietary Hydrogen Power Unit (HPU). The HPUs are manufactured to a GeoPura design by our partner Siemens Energy at their Newcastle facility, and employs an industrial fuel cell, UPS and batteries to deliver critical, zero-emission “energy as a service” to our customers across a wide range of use-cases from construction to film and TV production, to outdoor events. Existing clients include Netflix, BBC, HS2, Balfour Beatty and National Grid

Following significant Series A investment, bringing in world class partners General Motors, Siemens Energy, Barclays Capital and SWEN Capital partners (Giants of industry, manufacturing and finance back UK green hydrogen pioneer GeoPura with £36m investment – GeoPura) GeoPura are expanding and looking to hire across the business

GeoPura R&D Engineers will be working at the forefront of zero emission technology, contributing to designing and implementing innovate technological solutions for next generation zero emission power provision. Successful candidates will be expected to work as part of a world class team in a variety of engineering roles across three core areas of the GeoPura business, including:

  1. Gas to power systems: zero emission electrical power generation using our own Hydrogen Power Units (HPUs)
