Battolyser Systems is looking to recruit a Chief Technology Officer

Welcome to Battolyser Systems, a fully funded, cleantech scale-up company based in The Netherlands. We develop and manufacture products that can store electricity and produce hydrogen from renewable power to balance societal demand in a truly revolutionary way. Let us take you on this journey and show how you can make a difference by joining a fast-growing purpose driven company.

First, some background information on Battolyser Systems. Seven years ago, some really smart people at the Delft University of Technology invented the world’s first integrated battery and electrolyser system. They named it a ‘Battolyser’ and realized this invention could connect renewable power generation in a revolutionary way with how society will consume energy in a net zero emission world. To make real impact, the technology was spun-out of the Delft University of Technology into a separate company in 2018 to demonstrate a proof of concept in an industrial setting. And so, Battolyser Systems was born.

Fast forward to today. We have a patented and proven technology, customers are lined up and funding is secured. We have also attracted some top talent in the renewable energy and hydrogen market, passionate and motivated to make a difference. Knowledgeable, connected and committed are some of the keywords that best describe current leadership. In growing the company we aspire to build lasting teams for which we are looking to recruit a Chief Technology Officer who is motivated to make a real difference in tackling climate issues and recognizes the unparalleled innovation Battolyser technology brings in accelerating the energy transition.

Chief Technology Officer

This role is at the leading edge of applied electrochemistry in product innovation for future sustainable energy systems. You are the technology heart of the company, reporting directly to the CEO. You are responsible for research & development to fuel continuous improvement of our products and design and develop the stack. You will build and lead a technology team including electrochemical technologists, electrode and materials specialists. You will lead our collaborations with knowledge institutions and particular Delft University of Technology. More specifically with your team you’ll be responsible for the following tasks:

· Take full responsibility for the development of the stack, including cell performance improvement, manufacturability, operability and materials selection. The new cell designs will be tested in our dedicated Battolyser Research Facility before mass manufacturing;

· Develop promising new electrode materials modifications introduced at Delft University of Technology for implementation in future Battolyser generations;

· Lead collaboration with suppliers of specialty components, such as cell frames, diaphragms and electrodes;

· Develop together with the Head of Products a Research & Development roadmap and take accountability for implementation;

· Lead the IP strategy, building on the existing patent portfolio to position Battolyser Systems for future growth.


The Person

We feel, in order to be successful in this role, you have a PhD in electrochemistry. You are self-driven, intrinsically motivated and committed to materialize the overall company vision. You are a technologist at heart with a track record in battery or/and alkaline water electrolysis product development and innovation. You are ‘hands-on’ but know when to leave it to others, this shows in demonstratable experience in leading teams. You can translate product specifications to clear R&D plans and make science practical. You want your work to be commercially successful and reach out to other teams to ensure it can be engineered, manufactured and exceeds customers’ expectations. And finally, a strong academic and industry network that would really set you apart.
