Nitricity is a startup addressing climate change, and we are looking for your help. We are innovating in an essential chemical industry that supports global food systems. The bedrock of modern agriculture is the production, distribution, and application of the essential nutrients found in fertilizers. However, nitrogen fertilizer is currently made in coal- and gas-fired facilities located hundreds to thousands of miles away from farmers who need it. The $120B industry is responsible for as much as 6% of global CO2eq emissions. Nitricity Inc. has developed a new technology that produces fertilizer using air, water, and renewable electricity (e.g., solar). Growers will have access to a more reliable, low-cost, and environmentally friendly fertilizer supply. We are actively growing our team to help us realize this vision.
The Mechanical Engineer will be part of Nitricity's Research and Development team developing our distributed and containerized fertilizer systems. Specifically, this position will work with our systems engineering team to develop P&IDs, CAD models using SOLIDWORKS, and other deliverables and design documents necessary for the optimization of our lightning fertilizer systems for highly distributed applications in agriculture and food production. This process has the potential to be highly cost-effective, increase the value of the product, and sell credits for sequestering CO2.
The primary responsibility will be collaborating with Nitricity's Engineering team and contract engineering partners to adapt our current bench scale reactors and turn them into a true product. The mechanical engineer will work on ways to package our plasma reactor, absorption equipment, and other chemical process equipment into specific footprints and other specifications determined by our customers and partners. This will require both high level design work as well as attention to detail. This is an exciting opportunity to work through the whole product lifecycle and help solve the global fertilizer crisis and build a sustainable future.
