About Us:

SunDrive is one of Australia's most exciting start-ups, operating in one of the world's most exciting spaces – renewable energy technology.  
We are on a mission to unlock Solar's full potential by revolutionizing how solar cells are made, to unlock new heights of efficiency, cost, and sustainability. 
Founded in 2015 by two UNSW roommates (Vince Allen - a PhD student in solar and David Hu – a former investment banker), we have come a long way from the breakthrough made in their garage to producing the world’s most efficient commercial-sized solar cell. 
In 2022, we secured $21 million in our Series A funding round, and are backed by some of Australia’s top venture capital firms (Blackbird, Main Sequence, Virescent, and Mike Cannon-Brooke’s private investment fund, Grok), tech founders, a former Australian Prime Minister, and the Australian Government. 

You will focus on:

    • Collaborating alongside our talented production team to build & assembly new solar panels.
    • Operating commercial and lab-scale fabrication and testing equipment.
    • Assist in managing inventory, materials and input purchase orders to our procurement & logistics officer.
    • Contributing to the continuous improvement of our assembly processes.

We would love you to have:

    • Exceptional attention to detail.
    • Proficiency in delicate handling and a resilient approach to challenges.
    • Great communication skills with a proactive mindset for suggesting improvements.
    • Experience in a factory, warehouse or assembly line.
