Mechatronics / Wind turbine engineer

Salary Competitive

We are looking for a full-time engineer that ideally will manage (and do a lot of) the development of our next-generation grid-connected turbine. 


We are also developing a large version of Wind Catcher that we believe will be able to set new standards for energy generated per material and cost - reduce the environmental impact cost of renewable electricity. This will enable homeowners (in open landscapes), farmers, and remote communities to generate their own clean electricity.

Making a wind turbine involves many engineering disciplines and skills. We are mostly lacking an engineer with great analytical mechanical engineering skills, but we could also use support within the realm of electronics. 

The position 

Below is a list of required and bonus skills - these correlate with the expected tasks that you will help us with. We get a lot of joy from seeing each other daily and expect you to be onsite most work days. You will most likely also be running a lot of experiments, which is easier to attend in real life.

We expect that you have experience with these mechanical engineering topics: Load calculations, FEM, Safety factors, Basic material science (composites and metals), Joints (bolted and glue), Design for manufacturing, Tolerances, Vibrations, Aerodynamics, Kinematics

It’s also a requirement that you know how to do basic programming, but preferably you are very familiar with scripting/programming languages.

It would also be great if you knew about Experience working with 3D prints, Proficient in using aeroelastic tools, Quality control, Basic to advanced electronics (analog electronics, digital electronics, power electronics, safety), Certification, and standards.

We offer

  • An opportunity to work with a dedicated team trying to solve the climate crisis and increase prosperity.

  • A place where you can have a lot of influence on your own tasks and work environment.

  • Competitive startup salary with an option for warrants depending on qualifications. 

  • An opportunity to be part of the whole process - from understanding customer pain to a finished product with a relatively short turnaround time.

  • To be part of a responsive and pragmatic team. We are open to quick changes of plans and love to settle disputes by quick empirical tests (when possible). 

  • Almost no bureaucracy 

  • Gain new competencies. Working at KiteX you will most likely be doing something that you haven’t been working with before. 

Starting date as soon as possible.

Working at

At KiteX, we're revolutionising energy with innovative wind turbines inspired by kites. Our mission? To make wind turbines that use significantly less material, offering a cost-effective and sustainable alternative to traditional turbines. Our journey began by envisioning wind turbines that combine the efficiency of kites and autonomy of drones. On this path we found an hybrid design with guy wire supported tower and blades could achieve almost the same material savings, but without any of the disadvantages. Our unique approach centres on patience, refining technology step by step, and focusing on sustainable solutions. We're scaling up production of the groundbreaking Wind Catcher, a portable off-grid turbine, while designing a larger, grid-connected successor. As we grow, we're seeking exceptional team members in marketing, customer support, technical, and electrical engineering. KiteX isn't just a workplace; it's an opportunity to drive clean energy and make history. Join us in shaping a sustainable future. Contact us through the hub or at to be part of something extraordinary.
