Job Description

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.

Job Brief

You will lead a key part of Twelve's MEA fabrication scale up efforts which will support the delivery of the world’s first at-scale CO2 electrolyzer and beyond. We need someone that has a proven track record of taking processes of homogenizing solutions of various materials from the lab scale to the pilot scale. In addition to scaling, each process needs to be optimized to increase throughput and drive down costs. This role will be supported not only internally with the MEA Fabrication team, but also by many other parts of Twelve’s technical team including chemists, material scientists, and mechanical and software engineers.

What you will do

  • Lead a large project that develops and scales our ink production that supports our MEA coating processes from lab to pilot scale.
  • Initially start with hands-on work and grow and mentor a small team of engineers to deliver results.
  • Coordinate project inputs and needs with the chemistry, fabrication, and engineering teams.
  • Create detailed documentation to transfer processes to the manufacturing team.

Who you are

  • Have a proven track record in scaling chemical production processes or related projects from lab to pilot scale.
  • Experience with mixing techniques and deep understanding of heat management of liquids in tanks on the 100-500L scale. 
  • Fundamental knowledge of dispersions and their stability, such as inks, colloids, or slurries.
  • You care about effective communication and process documentation.
  • Experience optimizing processes for performance and cost using DOEs and SPC.
  • Proficient skill in efficiently accessing and analyzing data from databases.
  • Have the desire to excel at mentoring or even managing early career engineers.
  • You have developed effective project management methods.
  • Prioritize safety throughout your workflow.

Twelve Benefits

  • Medical, dental, and vision coverage
  • Paid sick days and vacation
  • Competitive salary and equity compensation commensurate with experience
  • Diverse and inclusive work environment

 

We believe that the unique contributions of each individual is the driver of our success. To make sure that our products and culture continue to incorporate everyone's perspectives and experience we never discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, or marital, veteran, or disability status.
