About us

Bumblebee Power is an early-stage, VC-backed start-up which is commercialising high-frequency inductive charging technology. Our patent-protected solution has significantly superior performance in terms of weight, distance, and tolerance to misalignment compared with conventional low-frequency solutions. 

The company has achieved strong commercial interest with significant customer engagement. Bumblebee is currently building a team of engineers to take our first products to market within the next year.

About this role

Bumblebee Power is looking for a highly motivated power electronics engineer with at least 5 years industrial experience following a degree or PhD in electrical engineering. The role will involve taking new HF inverters and rectifiers through product certification, including leading on EMC compliance and working closely with contract manufacturers to ensure robust and reliable performance of the product. The role will also involve the design, build and testing of MHz resonant power converters including inverters and rectifiers for mid-to-high power wireless charging solutions as well as general power electronics for grid and battery interface and optimising system level performance.

You should have a strong background in the design of power electronics circuits and systems, you should be familiar with all the standard converter topologies, and have a good knowledge of circuit simulation software such as SPICE. Also, you should have a strong experience with PCB design, build, test procedures and have a good experience of thermal management approaches. Experience with taking product to market through the CE certification process and especially achieving EMC compliance and design for manufacture is essential.

A background in wireless power is desirable but not essential.

You will be joining a small team of engineering and commercial professionals who are creating products that will provide universal and automatic wireless charging for a wide-range of applications in global markets.
