Head of Product – Jobs in Germany

About PowerUs

PowerUs is building the ultimate career platform for skilled blue-collar workers. Our platform helps workers find jobs they love and guides them in their professional journey — from apprenticeship to retirement. In parallel, we assist companies in swiftly hiring skilled workers, particularly in the dynamic field of renewable energy, including solar and wind sectors. Qualified workers are the most important missing link in the energy transition towards renewable energy.

Using the PowerUs platform, workers can enter these new and exciting industries, unlocking opportunities to increase their earnings by up to 50%. Our recent €24 million Series B financing round, backed by investors, like Eurazeo, General Catalyst, Headline, and HV Capital, alongside successful business angels such as Max Viessmann, the founders of Personio, and Mario Götze, we can truly commit to our mission of a more sustainable future.
