WATTx is looking for a Captain of Trajectory who will lead the research and prototyping development of one of our most promising projects in IoT in shipping.

  • The ability to create a demanding and supportive working environment.
  • The ability to communicate transparently and effectively within your own team as well as with key stakeholders such as clients and investors.
  • A structured approach to work that helps your team reach its targets.
  • An experience in the shipping and maritime transport industry is a big plus.

  • A network of partners to help you build your prototype and transition to a new venture every step of the way.
  • An unparalleled adventure and an opportunity to fulfill your entrepreneurial goals by building actual technology and solving real problems.
