Job Description

About SimpliPhi Power:

On a mission to create universal access to safe, reliable and affordable energy, SimpliPhi Power designs and manufactures highly efficient, durable, cobalt-free energy storage and management systems that have been deployed in over 40 countries. Based in Oxnard, California, SimpliPhi combines non-hazardous lithium ferro phosphate (LFP) chemistry with innovative manufacturing materials and processes, advanced engineering, power electronics, and Battery Management Systems (BMS) to provide flexible and scalable on-demand power solutions for residential, commercial, industrial, military, emergency response and humanitarian applications. Integral to all SimpliPhi Power solutions is proprietary IP that further optimizes the rate and depth of discharge, cycle life, resilience and overall performance of our energy storage and management systems. Founded in 2010, SimpliPhi Power’s energy storage solutions were rigorously tested by and surpassed the requirements of the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, serving the needs of service men and women on the front lines in Afghanistan and Iraq. Meeting that standard of excellence remains at the core of all that we do.

SimpliPhi Power recognizes that high performance teams are made up of diverse, critical thinkers who are also creative, tenacious and proactive, focused on the strategy, execution and hard work necessary to make a positive impact – on people, the company, the planet. We believe that who you are as a person matters and infuses everything you do – and that this principle is as fundamental to your job performance as your educational, technical and professional experience. We seek candidates who are innovative problem solvers with an exceptional capacity to process both quantitative and qualitative data, who are as compassionate as they are passionate about their work, who can set and achieve high standards but possess the humility to take feedback and course-correct when necessary. We know that innovation must happen at every level and within every department of the company, that it is as much about technological advancement as it is about how we build our business and the practices we employ, our communication strategy and stellar customer service.

If these qualities and capacities align with the vision you have of yourself and the type of company you want to work with, we welcome your application!
