AeroShield is making the next generation of energy-efficient windows possible by manufacturing the first ultra-clear, super-insulating aerogel sheets. Windows are critical ...View Company Profile
Windows are critical elements of comfort and productivity, but in the United States they cost $40 billion in heating and cooling energy. But what if we were no longer forced to choose between insulating our walls for indoor comfort and accessing natural daylight and beautiful outdoor views? New super-insulating material developed by AeroShield is designed to drop inside existing double-pane window manufacturing to create a window 50% more insulating – this can enable $10 billion in energy savings and >500 million tons of CO2 reduction (nearly half of current US homes’ annual emissions)!
We aren’t the only ones excited: founded out of MIT in 2019, AeroShield has established manufacturing R&D activities in Hyde Park (Boston), MA since March of 2020. The company has raised over $7 M in funding to begin producing prototypes and is working with 4 DOE national labs and has earned recognition in Forbes 30 Under 30: Energy.
This position offers an exciting opportunity to join the core AeroShield R&D team led by Founder & CTO, Dr. Kyle Wilke, to develop and optimize a scalable and economic process for integrating our material into windows.
The ideal candidate will be familiar with multi-component products and/or insulated glass unit manufacturing and be ready to get hands-on with customers to develop the first product that integrates our ground-breaking material. We seek a dynamic engineer who wants to help understand our customers in order to inform and lead the development and testing of AeroShield insulated glass units and windows. We seek a dynamic engineer who can work directly with customers to understand their product and process requirements to inform AeroShield’s development, testing, and deployment.
