Descrizione del lavoro

Employ your Expertise + Our Technology to decarbonize the planet

We are a sustainable heat and power technology company that helps buildings and homeowners save money, reduce carbon emissions, and increase resiliency. Our mission is to decarbonize building energy with our breakthrough combined heat-and-power products and direct hydrogen production technology. As a venture backed startup with $40+M raised and support from prominent investors like Bill Gates, we have the resources and team to truly change the world.


As we are on the cusp of announcing industry partnerships and approaching commercialization, we are looking for a skilled Physical Chemist to join our team.

We have enormous potential for learning, impact, and growth. With your Physical Chemistry background, you will design and perform high-quality experimentation and analysis, build empirical models, and report conclusions. We want you to push beyond existing performance bounds and actively contribute to the ideation of new research directions.

Working with a super talented and dedicated team of physicists, chemists, and engineers, you will help us continue to move fast as we outpace larger companies and achieve what they are unable to achieve.

3 Awesome reasons to work here:

Top Funding from prominent investors and partners

Opportunity to join a top team of R&D scientists from multiple disciplines

Top benefits and options as we move to commercialization

What you will be doing

You will work with an interdisciplinary group of physicists, chemists, and engineers developing and testing our cutting-edge thermionic converter technology. This role involves high-quality experimentation on electrode surface chemistry and developing chemical models for vapor-solid-surface equilibrium systems.

Responsibilities include:

  • Lead the design and construction of robust test setups
  • Design and execute high-quality experiments
  • Analyze data to build empirical models and report conclusions
  • Contribute to new research directions and push beyond existing performance bounds
  • Thrive as an independent researcher or technical lead of a team as work requires.

What you need for this Position:

Because of the elevated experience required for this role, we believe you should have a master' s degree or higher in Physical Chemistry, Materials Science, Chemical Engineering, or related.

This is a hands-on role, and you should be comfortable executing experimentation on electrode surface chemistry and developing chemical models for vapor-solid-surface equilibrium systems.

You should also have:

  • MS or PhD in Physical Chemistry, Materials Science, Chemical Engineering, or related field
  • Familiarity with the concepts and principles of surface chemistry and vacuum systems
  • Experience in commercial R&D designing, building, and operating prototypes, test setups, or custom measurement or characterization equipment, as well as designing experiments and analyzing data
  • Experience independently driving research projects
  • Experience with high vacuum or ultra-high vacuum systems
  • Clear, effective, and efficient technical communication with scientists and engineers of diverse backgrounds

  • PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS:R&D experience in a start-up company
  • Familiarity with design of experiments (DOE) and statistical methods for data analysis and/or process control
  • Expertise with chemical or trace gas analyses in ultra-high vacuum systems, including residual gas analyzers, mass spectrometers, plasma diagnostics, XPS, UPS, TPRS/TPD, electron spectroscopy, or optical techniques
  • Expertise in gas-surface reaction thermodynamics and kinetics, including kinetic theory of gases, multi-species adsorption and evaporation and techniques of surface engineering
  • Basic familiarity with automation of instrumentation and data acquisition using Python, MATLAB, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, LabVIEW, or similar
  • Experience leading teams in the design, construction, execution, and analysis of experiments
