Open Role: Process Engineer II

HQ Location: Oakland, CA (remote: OK) (travel: 50%)

About Mars Materials

Mars Materials (“Mars”) is on a mission to reverse humanity’s industrial waste carbon footprint. We’re currently commercializing NREL-developed IP that enables us to produce low-cost, low-carbon acrylonitrile (ACN) using captured-CO2 and bio-based feedstocks. ACN is a commodity scale material that’s integral in our daily modern lives. ACN’s use as a precursor for carbon fiber will allow Mars to actualize our vision of decarbonizing carbon-intensive industries such as steel and aluminum production.

Mars was chartered as a public benefit corporation in 2021 by a group of passionate climate solutionists with backgrounds in chemical engineering, research, and cleantech commercialization. Mars is working to create a future where polluting carbon is more costly than using our technologies.

About the role

As Process Engineer II, you’ll lead the development, piloting,  project engineering, and execution of Mars’ carbontech. The ideal candidate will have experience with developing/piloting chemical processes at the small scale as well as experience engineering and managing commercial scale chemical projects.

Why Join Us?

Our business is greenhouse gas removal. Whether that’s CH4 or CO2, the Mars team develops and markets technology solutions that enable gigaton-scale gas utilization. Right now, the odds (and let’s face it, thermodynamics) are against carbon-negative processes, but attitudes and incentives are beginning to shift in a favorable direction for CO2 utilization. Now is the time to accelerate the transition away from fossil fuels. Mars has the technology to kickstart this transition. Today, we’re seeking new team members to help us rapidly scale up our CO2-to-Acrylonitrile process.
