Company Description

At Ucaneo we develop the world’s first cell-free Direct Air Capture technology leveraging a biocatalytic membrane to capture CO2 from the air. Climate change is a global problem and needs to be tackled at scale. Therefore, we set the goal to capture 0.5 GT of CO2 from the air by 2035 - roughly the same weight as all humans on earth combined!

After the first promising results in the lab we continue to focus on our technology. If you want to join an ambitious team with lots of freedom and growth check out our career page and jobs. We are looking for talents in the area of process engineering, material science and chemistry/biology. Please feel free to contact us anytime!

🌏 Do you want to work on reversing climate change with synthetic biology? Join us! MISSION & ABOUT We are an early startup with a big vision - capture 0.5GT of global CO2 emissions from the air by 2035 through biotechnology, roughly the same weight as all humans on earth combined! To meet our climate targets the reduction of CO2 emissions is not enough, the world actively has to capture billions of tons of CO2 from our atmosphere. To achieve that we at Ucaneo develop the world’s first cell-free Direct Air Capture technology leveraging a biocatalytic membrane to capture CO2 from the air. We are a science and mission driven team, fast moving with a break or make attitude. We have two labs, the Life Science Factory Göttingen , one of the most modern lab co-working spaces in Germany and one lab at the IRIS, Adlershof , one of the leading labs in Europe in hybrid materials with the Helmholtz Institute and HU Berlin. OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU You will work on an aspiring mission with the potential to impact the life of billions of people You will join a diverse and high-performing team with a fast moving make or break attitude Flat hierarchy and open communication - the best idea wins From day 1 you will enjoy a high level of freedom and autonomy You will be part of an incredible start-up journey Huge learning potential and the opportunity to build things from the ground up (literally) Joining the Ucaneo family, go on joint offsites, and have fun activities Perks Employee stock options Flexible working hours Hybrid working Regular team events RESPONSIBILITIES Material science Develop polymer and lipid based protein immobilization materials for industrial use Maintain and manage lab equipment for material synthesis and characterization Execute material tests in a bioreactor together with the hardware team Document Standard Operating Procedures for synthesis, formulation, and testing Create and showcase product prototypes at various stages of the product development process Leadership Take leadership and build up the materials team at Ucaneo Workstyle Highly self-directed and able to work independently, as well as the proven ability to work as a member of a cross functional teams Ability to deliver initiatives from conception through completion Curiosity to dig several layers deep into technical solutions with an eye toward continuous improvement Passion for driving radical innovations and are passionate about building things from the ground up REQUIREMENTS Skills and experience PhD in Material Science, Chemistry, Biochemistry or similar 1+ years of work experience on cutting-edge materials research and protein immobilization 2+ years of hand’s on experience in material science in industrial setting Experience in enzyme immobilization (polymer and lipids) on different geometries Workstyle and culture You feel comfortable being one of the multiple decision makers to create a successful product Ability to juggle multiple priorities and effectively deliver in a fast-paced, dynamic environment Enthusiastic and proactive approach to solve the problem combined with an goal-oriented mindset to get things done following the pareto principle Analytical and structured way of working in order to be able to communicate clearly even complex issues within an interdisciplinary team Other Valid Work Permit for Germany, or able to obtain a permit WHAT TO EXPECT FROM OUR 3 STEPS SELECTION PROCESS Upload your CV through the form Interviews: 30-60 min culture fit interview 60 min technical & case study interview 2 days trial work (depending on the role) Please note: while we appreciate all applicants, only those chosen for an interview will be contacted by our team.
