Twelve is a new kind of chemical company built for the climate era. Our breakthrough technology eliminates emissions by turning CO2 into essential products. We are a team of scientists, engineers and problem solvers on a mission to fundamentally shift the way the world addresses climate change and lead the transition to a fossil free future with our carbon transformation technology.
The Fabrication Team is a dynamic part of Twelve’s technical team responsible for formulating inks, designing electrodes, coating substrates and scaling-up the core component of our CO2 electrolyzer system, the Membrane Electrode Assembly (MEA). The MEA is made of catalysts, polymer electrolytes, and other substrates that catalyze the conversion of CO2 to CO and other chemicals. Our team works collaboratively to translate research ideas into functioning systems and products with high performance and durability. So if you're ready to roll up your sleeves with a diverse, world class team of material scientists, electrochemists and engineers in an innovative and supportive environment to make a positive, measurable impact on climate, Twelve is the place for you.
We are looking for a Senior MEA Fabrication Engineer to conduct research and develop continuous coating methods to design, formulate, and fabricate high performance anodes and cathodes for CO2 electrolyzers. In this position you will be engaged with multiple cross-functional teams to explore various aspects of developing scalable coating processes by rapidly iterating through ink formulations, optimizing ink mixing methods, modifying the deposition of thin films on substrates, and tuning formulation and fabrication parameters (solids ratio, viscosity, surface tension, drying rate etc.) to optimize electrode composition and morphology. You will be tasked with becoming the subject matter expert on ink rheology, electrode microstructure and MEA manufacturing methods. This is a hybrid position but the R&D hands-on work will need to be conducted primarily on-site in Berkeley
