Charge Robotics is a YC-backed startup building robots that build large-scale solar farms. Demand for new solar projects is booming (1/5th of all the solar that exists in the US was installed last year!), but today’s construction companies can’t keep up due to limited labor resources.
We thought this was insane, so we started working on robots to directly address this bottleneck and speed up the world’s transition to renewables.
We’re a small, fast moving company which means constant opportunity for learning and growth. You’ll have a large impact on the direction of our company and our product, which will be reflected in significant equity compensation. And you get to play with 🤖 giant robots 🤖.
If you are excited to work on interesting technical problems with direct climate impact, you’re going to fit right in.
As a senior mechanical engineer at Charge Robotics, you’ll own a significant chunk of development for a new robotic system that assembles solar farms.
We need an experienced mechanical design engineer to help design the next generation of our delivery system, which carries ~40 foot, 1 ton sections of the solar farm around the site.
You'll work with very large industrial hardware, become an armchair expert in solar construction, and directly help accelerate the global transition to renewable energy.
