Our mission attracts candidates from all over the world who want their work to have a meaningful impact. We’re continuing to build a team of diverse, passionate, and creative problem-solvers who are fascinated by our platform and inspired by our purpose. We recognize the importance of creating an environment of physical and psychological safety, where everyone can bring their authentic selves to work every single day.
Imagine waking up one morning and hitting the light switch, only to be stuck in utter darkness because there is no power and your lights don’t work. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 1 billion people in the world suffer from energy poverty or lack of energy. FuelCell Energy is helping organizations and communities around the world develop a safe, secure, and practical journey to net-zero by decarbonizing power and producing hydrogen.
Sustainability extends to the products we create and all of the resources we use as a business. We use Design for Environment (DfE) principles in the design, manufacturing, installation, and servicing of our platforms.
