The Team and Company

Trillium Technologies is an international innovation firm dedicated to the Design and Engineering of systems platforms in Ocean Conservation, Climate Change, and Space Exploration.

We love challenging problems and the opportunity to invent elegant solutions to solve them. We have a successful track record of developing a broad range of technologies in the fields of consumer electronics, renewable energy, robotics, connected objects, and citizen science. Following a “Mission Oriented” approach, every system we build is developed with a specific Mission Objective in mind. Whether it's a system to build an embedded Artificial Intelligence for ocean conservation or working with NASA to build a robotic observatory for planetary defense.

Trillium Technologies is a hardware startup based in London, UK with a network of international partners in the USA, France, and Hong Kong.

The Type of Things You'll Build

Trillium Technologies is developing multiple technologies which will allow the hired candidate to apply and evolve their skills in product design.

The particular focus of this role will be on the development of OCTOtalk, an underwater wireless communication and embedded intelligence platform for SCUBA divers and snorkelers. OCTOtalk is a disruptive reinvention of the SCUBA mask with applications as a consumer electronics product as well as a citizen science platform for ocean research and conservation.

In parallel, this role may also assist in the product design of other projects, such as Ultrascope, a 3D printable and fully autonomous robotic telescope for Planetary Defense. For more information on OCTOtalk and other projects please visit
