hydrogen refueling technology.
The Hydrogen Infrastructure group is a technical leader in the design, construction, and operation
of compressed hydrogen fueling infrastructure solutions – these include stationary, semi-
permanent, and mobile refueling stations, light-weight tube trailers, and station testing and
certification equipment. We pioneered the design of turnkey, containerized hydrogen fueling
station packages. Other firsts include the world’s first 700 bar “fast-fill” hydrogen refueling station
and the first hydrogen station capable of fueling four fuel cell vehicles simultaneously.
As a member of the Hydrogen Stations team, you will work as a process engineer to support the
development of hydrogen fueling stations. You will work with a team of engineers, software
programmers, technicians, and fabricators to improve our existing hydrogen fueling stations and
