Join a Materials Startup Fighting Forest Destruction!
Founded in 2021, Symmetry Wood™ seeks to create greater harmony between humanity and nature by producing sustainable materials that can be used as alternatives to high-demand wood made, often illegally, from the destruction of forests. We call our material Pyrus™, and it’s made using wastes from the food industry, with the help of natural bacteria that make cellulose. Symmetry Wood™ has already won numerous awards, including the coveted Dyson™ prize, and is currently in a pre-seed start-up stage. To help us slow the destruction of dwindling primary tropical forests, we are seeking founding equity partners who will help usher the company into production and the use of Pyrus™ by our initial target markets.
The Lead Production Engineer at Symmetry is responsible for overseeing and managing the production process for the company's early Pyrus™ production. This involves working closely with design and engineering partners to ensure that the material is manufactured efficiently and to the highest quality standards. They are also responsible for implementing and maintaining production processes, particularly the mechanical elements, as well as troubleshooting and solving any issues that may arise in that regard.
Tasks and Responsibilities
Overall, the lead production engineer plays a crucial role in ensuring that the company’s products are being produced efficiently and to the highest quality standards.
Are you passionate enough about Symmetry’s mission to join a fast-moving company at the beginning of its journey? This role is, at first, equity-based. Our ideal candidate will become a founding partner of Symmetry Wood™. Future salary will be commensurate with investment achieved as Symmetry grows through upcoming funding rounds.
