Job Details

About Us:

OtG Group began with the idea that grouping food vendors together could create an experience that would allow neighbors, friends, and families to connect. Since then, OtG’s companies have worked hard to develop services and products that change the way that people think about going out.


Off the Grid Markets started in 2010 by  grouping food trucks together to create the bay area’s biggest night market. Since that time our public markets business has grown throughout Northern California to 50+ locations per week. Off the Grid Catering specializes in privatizing our markets experience on behalf of large events (200+ people) where we offer turn-key event production to event managers and planners. The Whole Cart leverages the idea of aggregated brands together in order to create variety and choice in large corporate environments where TWC creates the brands and the food. As we’ve grown, OTG has expanded outside of food through pioneering modular construction through our product we call Cubert; a patented secure portable building that can transform into event and retail spaces. Last, we’ve built our own SaaS platform called Infrastruckture that acts as a dashboard for managing the logistics around our products and the businesses of those who work with us.


Position Summary:

The Electrical Engineer is responsible for owning the Cubert product line’s electrical and power systems (ie. product execution,  design analysis, troubleshooting)  and guiding critical electrical design decisions. Effectively partnering with cross-functional positions (mechanical, manufacturing, and design), this position cross collaborates to meet product goals and specifications. Additionally, this role will work within a guided budget to assist in the procurement of parts and selection of electrical technicians and will report into the Lead Manufacturing Engineer.
