Nuventura is a renowned climate technology company on a mission to revolutionize the energy sector. Our objective is clear: to render SF6, the world's most potent greenhouse gas, obsolete. We have achieved this ambitious goal through innovation, developing cutting-edge electrical switchgear that replaces SF6 with clean, breathable air. Our business model involves licensing our products to global manufacturers, supplying core components to them, and manufacturing complete products for our domestic markets. As we scale up production to meet growing demand for our revolutionary technology, we have recently established a new base in East Berlin, combining our office and R&D space.

In this symbiotic dance, you will create a win-win scenario, embodying the essence of joint success. If you're a dynamic individual ready to personify this collaborative vision, apply now!
