Upstart Power Inc. was founded in 2017 with the purpose of making small scale Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Systems a commercial reality. In 2018 we completed the acquisition of the SOFC business from Ballard Power Systems, introduced our concept system and signed distribution and supplier agreements.

The future of Upstart Power is a very exciting, we have finalized a material investment in the business, our field trials are exceeding our expectations, and we beginning to scale our operations to meet the demand of multiple fielding partners.

All of this momentum means that we are looking to expand our team. If you are creative, have a passion for solving problems and are inspired by the idea of reducing society’s reliance on fossil fuels then please get in touch, we’d love to talk to you.

Current Openings

In addition to these specific positions, we are always looking for talented engineers and business professionals to join our team.  As you’d expect for a start up company, we work incredibly hard in constantly changing circumstances, but we all love what we do and we really look forward to each and every day.

If you have an interest in fuel cells and have expertise in chemistry, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, power management, battery technology, economics or mathematics then please  send us an email at
