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 Twelve's catalyst manufacturing scale-up efforts which will support the production of the world’s first commercial-scale CO2 electrolyzer and beyond. You will be translating chemical syntheses involving liquid transfer from the lab scale to the pilot scale. In addition to scaling, each processing step needs to be optimized to increase throughput and reduce risk. This role will be heavily interfacing with the chemistry, engineering and process development teams. 

What you will do

  • You will be the technical lead on a project that will optimize and scale up our catalyst synthesis.
  • You will be setting up, commissioning, and validating Twelve’s first catalyst manufacturing line before transferring the system to manufacturing.
  • You will work with the manufacturing team to train a team of engineers to perform catalyst synthesis duties.
  • You will coordinate and collaborate with four or more individual contributors across the chemistry, engineering and process development teams.
  • You will craft detailed process and safety documentation.

Who you are

  • Have a proven track record in scaling chemical production processes or related projects from bench to pilot scale.
  • Experienced in handling liquid transfer, solid/liquid mixing, reactor design and separation processes on the 100-1000L scale. 
  • You care about effective communication, process documentation (SOPs and PFDs) and risk management.
  • Proficient in efficiently analyzing data with software (e.g. JMP, Excel).
  • Desire to excel at mentoring and managing early career engineers.
  • 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.
