We pioneered the organic battery

CMBlu started in 2011 as a research-driven project with the goal of storing electrical energy in arbitrarily large quantities in an environmentally friendly, sustainable and cost-effective way. Since then, we have continuously expanded our broad IP portfolio and expertise in large-scale energy storage.

Today, we are one of the leading organic flow battery companies headquartered in Alzenau, 30 km from Frankfurt Airport. With our groundbreaking technology, we will drive the energy transition, together with our partners, customers and most importantly: with our employees!

We are a highly motivated, committed and fast growing team of over 100 employees. We are now preparing for the market launch of our products and further professionalizing our organization.

We are looking for a personality from the technical environment with several years of management experience. Area of responsibility is the planning, realization and further development of production processes to achieve production targets (costs, quality, delivery reliability) and to ensure product and technology-specific standards, product ramp-ups and know-how transfer.
