Designer Engineer / Cofounder at Hinton Bikes

at Hinton Bikes in Cambridge

Hinton Bikes is looking for a design engineer to join our team as a cofounder.

We are a startup developing a lightweight folding electric bike for urban commuters. We have been working on this project for one year and have completed a first prototype. We have received a grant from the Department for Transport to fund this and are also supported by the Judge Business School at Cambridge University. We are now looking for a design engineer to join our team and help us take the ebike from prototype to launch and beyond.

We are looking for someone with experience developing robust, user-friendly consumer products. Experience managing projects and taking products through manufacturing are very advantageous. Familiarity with Solidworks or similar CAD software is a must. A love of bikes is a big plus.

We're not looking for an employee: we want you to be a core part of our team, contributing not only to the development and delivery of the ebike but also to building the company.

We are currently unable to offer a competitive salary up front, but we do want to give you the opportunity to earn a substantial share of ownership in the company and join us in fundraising over the coming months (we have begun early talks with interested investors). Salaries for all team members will be dependent on raising funding.

We are currently based in Cambridge (UK) and it would be preferable for you to be based within striking distance (London/Midlands/East of England).

If you are interested, get in touch. We love to tell you more over a coffee.
