GBatteries was founded eight years ago to tackle one of the world’s most pressing issues: the transition to a cleaner future through electrification. We are pioneering battery technology which enables ultra-fast charging of Li-ion batteries without compromising battery life — and without changing the battery’s chemistry or manufacturing process. Ultimately, our mission is to accelerate the mass adoption of electric vehicles.
We are working on some of the biggest challenges in energy storage, and are looking for the right people to join us as we develop our technology and continue to scale.

As a Project Coordinator, you will be working with a fast-moving team of engineers and scientists to build, integrate, and execute a pipeline that will streamline the completion of tasks and milestones for our projects. Tasks include coordinating with lead project manager to support the execution of tasks for company-wide projects, documenting meeting notes for R&D teams, and organizing company-wide meetings and events. You’ll be involved in identifying and addressing areas of improvement in project related R&D processes.
This is an exciting opportunity to work at the crossroads of design, engineering, and business objectives, and have a significant impact on the deployment of our battery technologies. This is a highly technical environment where you'll be working closely with different engineering teams.

You’ll join a small but growing operations team where everyone is striving to constantly improve their knowledge of infrastructure, systems, and cares about creating dependable products. While we are still growing and have plenty to do, we are incredibility supportive of each other and pitch in to support our peers when problems arise.
