Isaac Asimov observed that the exclamation usually heralding new discoveries is not “Eureka” but “That’s funny…!”

Our vacancies

Human progress has often been the result of happy accidents. And right now, as we are locked in a race against time to resolve the climate crisis, such haphazard innovation is not good enough.

Monumo is using deep tech to help us escape our limitations, it can take us to new discoveries faster and help us make those unexpected connections, but deliberately not accidentally. There is little doubt that the problems we are trying to solve in electric motors are incredibly hard, but the objective is worth it.

Our company is built on trust – trusting the individual, the team, the company and its mission.

We are hiring a brilliant and diverse set of people into the company, in every role. The broader the relevant life experiences and skill sets in the company, the more varied the approaches and perspectives, the stronger we are and the more innovative we can be.

We will ensure that everyone is respected, valued and empowered to be themselves and deliver to their very best.

Our current vacancies

Inspired by the environmental challenge, driven by the desire to solve problems long considered too difficult, Monumo is changing the game. At Monumo we are combining human ingenuity with deep tech intelligence to deliver more sustainable designs and solve engineering problems impossible by conventional means.

Our methodology—using human creativity to set parameters but AI to determine the best possible answers—opens the door to optimal solutions and disruptive new design ideas that would be impossible or at the very least improbable without this blend of great engineers and compute power.

Our focus at present is on the engineering design problem of electric motors – a mature but increasingly vital technology with plenty of room for improvement. However, the techniques and the creativity employed to solve the engineering and technical problems of improving motor performance can be applied to other challenges. The tools we are creating can be applied to clean energy generation, aviation, heavy industry, manufacturing, robotics… there’s a lot to optimise.

Every effort must be made to solve the climate crisis, to protect the Earth’s resources, reduce the materials we use, increase the efficiency and performance of things we make and reduce their impact. Monumo can play a meaningful part in this change.

We are a well-funded start-up based in Cambridge and in Coventry. Our core team brings together complimentary skills and expertise from Arm, Microsoft Research, Deepmind, Siemens and Academia.
We really value everyone’s individual experience and the different perspectives, skills and humour they bring to our team.
