The Role

The energy transition requires the development of new business opportunities for Shell, together with the development of new technologies and equipment-based solutions. An important part of this strategy is the assessment and development of concepts and technologies to electrify current and future assets across industrial sectors. Electrification is one of the key enablers to achieve deep industrial carbonization, next to other technologies such as CCS, biomass or H2. If you are a highly motivated technical leader in the field of electrification and renewable power solutions who is committed to contribute to this vision of Shell then this role is an opportunity for you to realize this ambition.

Where do you fit in?
In the VP ship of Power you are going to be part of the GM-ship of Electrification that will aspire to promote and support the use of renewable electrical power to replace fossil based energy in industrial processes. You will be reporting to the Team Lead Electrification Products. The GM-ship includes a wide range of experts over the different areas of electrification from renewable generation to the various uses of renewable power to decarbonise industrial processes. The Electrification Products Team has a strong focus on electro-thermal (e.g. Power to Heat) product-based solutions, along with a growing focus on electro-chemical and electro-mechanical applications.  

What is the role?

Leading a multi-disciplinary team in the conception, development, and market introduction of commercially attractive product-based solutions for the electrification of industrial processes from renewable power.

More specifically, the role requires that you:

  • Management of the new product introduction life-cycle: conception, development, demonstration, commercial deployment and operational experience.

  • Lead cross functional teams from within the Power VPship, other specialist teams across Shell and external partners to deliver product-based solutions to firm schedule and budgetary commitments.

  • Maintain knowledge of current and emerging electrification technologies.

  • Build and maintain knowledge of the technical and commercial characteristics of power systems (generation to industrial usage).

  • Contribute to the definition and update of the electrification product roadmap to deliver strategic goals.

  • Lead market, competitor, customer, and use-case analyses to develop specifications for product based-solutions.

  • Lead the techno-economic and business modelling of product-based solutions at the use-case level.

  • Manage the screening, selection, qualification, integration and activities of suppliers and partners throughout the development to market introduction life cycle.

  • Lead development and oversight of commercial relationships.

  • Lead the set-up and incubation of execution capabilities to commercially delivery product-based solutions.

  • Bring product-based solutions knowledge to the identification and pursuit of commercial opportunities.

  • Direct component and system level testing to validate and demonstrate product-based solutions and their interfaces within larger integrated E2E solutions.

  • Work seamlessly with the Electrification Integration and other complementary teams working to deliver End-to-End (E2E) electrical power-based solutions for the energy transition.

  • Facilitate the application of ‘agile’ based product design and development to meet product specifications.

  • Apply Shell’s procedures for development and project execution to deliver the targeted outcomes with a continuous focus on quality, risk management and value creation.

  • Drive continued improvement in product-based solutions.

  • Drive HSSE excellence always for personnel, operations and in the inherent design of the product-based solutions.

Skills and Requirements

What will you bring to the role?

  • A legal authorization to work in the US on a full-time basis for anyone other than current employer.

  • A master’s degree or higher from a leading institution in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, physics, or a related discipline with strong components of electrical power and thermal design.

  • 10 or more years of experience in the development and design of equipment or key components in electro-thermal applications or similar.

  • A passion and commitment to using your knowledge and experience to help the energy transition and decarbonization of society through economically attractive solutions.

  • Understanding of electrification technologies and power systems.

  • Experience in the development and deployment of equipment to meet stringent customer and market specifications.

  • Commercial abilities and experience.

  • Project management skills in a gated new product introduction setting.

  • Experience of ‘agile’ development techniques with a focus on design for cost and manufacture.

  • Ability to fluently move your focus from macro techno-economic requirements and trade-offs to technical considerations as required.

  • Leadership skills gained through delivery of outcomes in a matrix organization.

  • Strong communication and presentation skills.

  • Relationship management experience with technical and non-technical collaborators (internal and external).

  • Collaborative style, with a commitment to an inclusive work culture and DEI.
