Compliance Engineer

Candela’s ultimate purpose is to speed up the transition to fossil fuel-free lakes and oceans. We strive to re-think efficiency in marine transportation to radically push the performance boundaries of electric boats and ships. 

 By combining sensors, computers and advanced submerged hydrofoils, our electric craft fly above the water, reaching speeds and range previously attained only by fossil fuel powerboats. 

After launching Candela C-7, Europe’s currently best-selling electric boat, we are venturing into public transport with the revolutionary foiling P-30 ferry, built for the city of Stockholm.  

We are now looking for a highly motivated Compliance and Test Engineer to support Candela’s growth ambitions. 


Core responsibilities: 

We are looking for a compliance engineer to perform global certifications on our electrical boats. You will be responsible for regulatory product architecture/design, developing validation, schedules, regulatory documentation and presenting and communicating results. In addition, you’ll participate in trade groups and technical standards committees to drive legislation. 

  • Regulatory product architecture and design 
  • Drive product registrations and applications with third party  
  • Participate in trade and regulatory associations 


 To be successful in the role:  

  • Minimum Degree in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or equivalent 
  • +5 years experience in an engineering regulatory compliance role 
  • Experienced in renewable energy products/standards and power electronics 
  • Skilled in EU/CE, North American and APAC regulations and processes 
  • Proven experience in getting products through  certification process 
  • Ability to navigate/interpret ambiguity of standards 


Join a stellar team 

By bringing together some of the world’s brightest researchers and engineers, we are pushing the boundaries of marine transportation. We take great pride in building engagement within our teams. Our internal motto is “with a revolutionary spirit and kindness”, which translates into an open and honest work environment – work is hard but fun.  

We are a 50-strong, multinational team of experts within dynamic modelling, hardware design, hydrodynamics, control theory, machine learning, structural engineering work and production to build the next generation of waterborne transport.  

This is a full-time position at our headquarter and production facility in Gåshaga, Lidingö. Working language is English, if you also know Swedish it will be a benefit for yourself, but it is not a prerequisite for the role.
