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 launched Candela C-8 in August 2021, the first electric boat intended for high volume production. We are also venturing into public transport with the revolutionary foiling P-30 ferry, built for the city of Stockholm.
We are now looking for a Motor Prototype Builder to support Candela’s growth ambitions.
The Candela C-POD is the most efficient and long-lasting boat motor ever made. Two ultra-compact yet strong permanent magnet motors under the water provide unrivaled range and efficiency. Enough thrust to make our boats fly at a speed of 30 knots, in absolute silence. Our talented engineers developed the C-POD from scratch, from electric motors to nuts and bolts, focusing on maximum efficiency and low drag. As Motor Prototype Builder, you will play a key role in securing performance and quality of our motors and be part of a highly skilled team developing and refining motors for our future boat models.
Core responsibilities include but are not limited to:
- Contribute to development of electric motors through wide experience within general motor building
- Support the motor development team with building of new electric motor prototypes in our workshop
- Rework and upgrade existing C-PODs
- Specify and build motor test equipment and rigs
- Perform motor testing including thermal cycling, life length test, isolation test and high voltage testing
- Review design and suggest improvements on existing C-POD as well as in new motor development projects
- Hands-on experience from building and testing electric motors
- Excellent understanding of various electric motor design principles and machine elements involved in electric motors
- Ability to operate manual machines - milling, turning etc
- Basic knowledge within CNC machining and CAD is helpful but not a prerequisite to be successful in this role
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 – we have a lot of fun while working hard to achieve our goals.
We are a 100-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 at Frihamnen, Stockholm. You will be part of Mechanical Engineering reporting to Director of Mechanical Engineering and working language is Swedish and/or English.
The selection and interview process is ongoing, so please send your application in Swedish or English as soon as it’s ready. Kindly note that we cannot process applications sent via email.
We welcome the opportunity to get to know you!
