Are you passionate about fighting climate change? Do you want to work on creating a world where everyone can breathe clean air? At Breathe, we believe an electrified future is key to achieving this, which is why we are building battery technology to help brands do more with the power they have.

Our physics-based battery management software helps some of the world's largest and most iconic automotive and consumer electronics brands deliver products with faster charging, longer life and zero compromise on safety. Put simply, we make batteries better. And we want you to join us.

What you will be doing

We are looking for an experienced engineering lead to help us build and scale efficiently running engineering team delivering high-quality software to some of the world's largest and most recognised brands. The ideal candidate will be an all rounder - bringing technical expertise, strong mentorship skills, effective project management skills and experience of developing efficient development practices while adhering to strict standards (such as ASPICE).

You will streamline the interface between our software, product and customer project teams, with great communication skills. You'll enable us to innovate quickly by coordinating people and resolving both technical and non-technical issues swiftly. You'll ensure the longevity of your work by ensuring processes and practices are well-documented and that adherence to these processes remains high as we scale. We'll intentionally support opportunities for you to develop, be that via courses, conferences, mentorship or something else.

This is a unique opportunity for someone to drive meaningful outcomes for both Breathe and our customers as we look to accelerate the electrification of everything.
