Junior Mechanical Engineer

Atlanta, GA (On-site)
Applications are considered on a rolling basis


Endeavour has an exciting opportunity for a Junior Mechanical Engineer to join our GridBlock team and help build the first plug-n-play energy router system.

Endeavour is the main hub—a self-sustaining incubation platform for innovation—within a larger ecosystem focused on sustainable infrastructure. It provides the space, time, and all necessary resources to take advanced technologies from ideation through development to launch. Because of Endeavour’s unique business model and ability to cut through red tape, work progresses quickly. As the Junior Mechanical Engineer in this fast-paced and dynamic environment, you will participate in the mechanical design of modules, enclosures and assemblies that are part of the GridBlock product. GridBlock is a smart energy router that manages the flow of energy between multiple sources and loads simultaneously and provides autonomous microgrid protection. GridBlock simplifies integration of solar PV, energy storage and EV fleet charging with new tools to improve grid resiliency.

The Junior Mechanical Engineer needs to be agile, professional, and comfortable in a rapidly changing environment. The right person is trustworthy with confidential information, highly organized, self-motivated, has excellent communication skills, can think strategically, and works equally as well independently as with a team. Endeavour values efficiency and strives to maintain smooth operations. We achieve this by empowering our people, by providing autonomy and flexibility in the way we work, by developing a habit of constant, open communication, and by creating a culture of excellence, appreciation, trust, and respect.

The Junior Mechanical Engineer is a vital member of Endeavour’s GridBlock team. We are looking for someone with strong design and analytical skills to be an integral part of the design, rapid-prototyping, and volume manufacturing of the GridBlock sub-systems.

At Endeavour, we are highly selective about the people we bring on board because our ecosystem depends on it. Change happens quickly here, and we must be able to trust one another to be honest, communicative, strategic, reliable, and driven. We seek ultra-creatives and superstar performers with a sense of humility and a hunger to make a positive impact in the world. Endeavour offers flexibility and endless growth opportunities to those who can harness their skills and talents and identify how and where to use them to add value. Growth at Endeavour means expanding outward, not upward, because there is no corporate ladder here to climb. Your path is in your hands, and Endeavour’s team is here to support you! At the heart of our ecosystem is a diverse group of bright, passionate, dedicated people, working together to make a real difference. Are you ready to join the journey?
