Our Australian roots ground us in an environment that demands us to challenge the status quo, and our agility and commitment will deliver global applications.

1414 Degrees’ technology stores energy generated from electricity or gas and supplies both heat and electricity in the proportions required by consumers. It is unique in its combination of low cost, flexibility of location, scalability, and sustainability. Following years of effort by the Company’s engineering team and the successful development of its commercial demonstrator, the Company is now in an early stage of product development and commercialisation.

We are seeking an experienced Financial Controller to take full ownership of the finance function for the business, and to work collaboratively with the leadership team to provide business partnership, financial information and commercial support. Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, you will play a key role in the achievement of 1414 Degrees’ business goals by shaping the financial accounting and reporting function to support the business in its growth strategies. It is a broad role, incorporating both technical and commercial elements, and managing the delivery of general accounting processes.
