Job Description

About Us

Travertine is a start-up based in Boulder, CO that is building a gigaton-scale carbon dioxide removal (CDR) and industrial chemical manufacturing process. Our process takes carbon dioxide from the air and sources of waste sulfate and produces carbonate minerals, sulfuric acid, and hydrogen. The sulfuric acid is used in industrial applications such as extraction of critical elements like lithium and nickel. We recently raised a seed round from the Grantham Foundation and Clean Energy Ventures, we were one of the first companies to receive pre-purchases of CDR from the new Stripe-led $1B Frontier fund, and we received a $2M grant from the DOE’s ARPA-E program. We believe in developing practical approaches to solving the climate crisis.

 

The Role

We are looking for an experienced Engineering Project Manager to manage the engineering design, procurement, and construction for our on-site CDR projects starting with several pilot-scale projects.
