Company Overview

CCell is a UK start-up offering innovative solutions for coastal protection and the recovery and enhancement of marine ecosystems. We are highly committed to the environment and firmly believe that we must make exceptional and highly competitive products to have the most significant impact. The company's core technology is the installation of artificial reefs around which limestone rock is formed using an electrolytic method to extract natural minerals from seawater. We also develop advanced numerical models to simulate ocean dynamics and structural dynamics.

In 2021 we installed our first full-scale 120-meter long reef in the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico. We have since installed several smaller systems around the world. These installations provide precious data and experience that we are rapidly incorporating into the reefs being established in 2022 and beyond. This year marks our transition from a proof-of-concept "digital reef", which provides the backbone structure and a digitally connected platform, towards our vision of a "living reef". To help achieve this vision, we are working with coral hatcheries to increase their output, and with universities to design and install sensors to monitor and guide improvements to the ecosystem.

Job Description

We are looking for an engineer to aid in developing our latest products which build on the CCell reefs. This will involve a large amount of software development spanning embedded C/C++ to Android app development and web interfaces. Alongside the software development, you will be required to design, prototype and test electronic devices. You will be working directly with the head of Product Development to design and develop new and improved products. This role requires a high degree of autonomy, from making design decisions to prototyping and testing ideas.

Other responsibilities will include:

- Run field trials of equipment

- Undertake accelerated testing of parts and systems

- Working with clients and partners to define requirements

- Developing and execute project plans, working to reduce risks and ensure they are delivered on time

- Managing the assembly and testing of equipment

- Manage inventories and relationships with suppliers

- Report and document system designs

Given the small size of the team and the diverse nature of our work, you will be required to have strong analytical skills, engineering intuition, and drive to learn and develop constantly. You will receive support from across the company to develop those skills and the products you work on.

Culture Overview

The CCell Renewables group is a relatively small team of highly dedicated and focused engineers and scientists who believe passionately in our mission and goals to restore marine environments and protect coastlines. We all work hard both within our work and in support of each other.
