    Company Overview
    Driven by its mission to advance global access to low-carbon, dispatchable energy, Mainspring has developed a new category of power generation - the linear generator - that delivers onsite, 24/7, fuel-flexible power at lower cost and lower carbon than the electric grid.

    The unique combination of attributes offered by Mainspring's linear generator enables applications on both the customer and utility sides of the meter for the $750B global electricity equipment market. Mainspring is launching its first commercial product with several Fortune 100 companies and partnerships with top-tier electric and gas utilities.

    We are looking to build relationships with people who share our values:
    • Pragmatic Optimism. Building a new category of world-class power generation requires the optimism of ambition and creativity, balanced with practicality to solve problems efficiently. The challenges that arise are opportunities for growth.
    • Excellence without Ego. We bring expertise and commitment to creating the best customer experience, from sales to deployment and service, just as we apply deep technical rigor to building and delivering world-class products. We strive for excellence and behave as leaders with the humility to acknowledge our challenges, both collectively and as individual contributors.
    • Proactive Collaboration. The integration and cross-disciplinary nature of Mainspring's business requires intentionally seeking out others who bring different skills, perspectives, and priorities. Our culture of inclusion and respect extends beyond our team to interactions with our partners and customers.

    Mainspring is based in Menlo Park and is backed by top-tier venture and strategic investors such as Khosla Ventures, Bill Gates, American Electric Power, and Centrica Innovations. More information can be found at www.mainspringenergy.com.
