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

Our focus is on the engineering design problem of electric motors – a mature but increasingly vital technology with plenty of room for improvement. What we are doing is fundamentally novel.

You may come from a physics, computer science or engineering background – we're very open minded. We need you to help us solve complex interdisciplinary problems to improve how most of the world’s energy is used by optimising electric motors to their fundamental limits.

You will be working on a wide variety of interesting tasks in a multi-disciplinary team of hardware engineers, physicists, and computer science experts.


We currently have no vacancies available.
