Description

Overview

At Advanced Ionics, our mission is to decarbonize the "hard-to-abate"; heavy industrial sectors of the world with a new class of electrolyzers. Advanced Ionics is seeking a Mechanical Engineer/CAD Designer to join our growing team, dedicated to developing transformational “green hydrogen” industrial electrolyzer systems.


You will be responsible for designing and validating our electrolyzer units. This includes, but is

not limited to, mechanical, thermodynamic, and fluid flow FEA, while working closely with the Multiphysics modeling and materials research teams to ensure customer satisfaction goals are met. As a mechanical engineer, you will work with both inside and outside machinists, thus proper GD&T and documentation skills are required.


Projects will be global, so savviness with international partners will be needed to build

relationships. You’re the right candidate for this job if you enjoy workplaces where everyone

has a voice, if you’re passionate about solving climate change through complex technologies

and markets, and if you’re willing propose a new idea, write a memo, code a script, and turn a wrench (there is no job “beneath” any Advanced Ionics team member).


What You’ll Do


  • Work closely with the entire research and development team to design the electrolyzer system’s balance-of-plant based on industrial customer integration requirements.
  • Design and construct hardware to validate Multiphysics models of the electrolyzer stack and balance of plant
  • Identify and implement all required HAZOP and hydrogen safety requirements.
  • Lead design reviews
  • Model the heat flows and heat exchanger performance within the electrolyzer system.
  • Identify best manufacturing methods.
  • Manage relationships with manufacturing suppliers and contractors
  • Perform product demos to customers, gather feedback, and work closely with the engineering team for the beta and pilot programs.
  • Deliver product ready documents, with prioritized features and corresponding justifications.
  • Fill in as-needed with other areas of business operation.


What You’ve Done to Get Here


  • You have knowledge of hydrogen utilization, in at least one or more of the ammonia, petrochemical, methanol, and/or gas supply industries.
  • You have expertise with applied engineering projects in the energy industry, alternative fuels, or a closely related advanced manufacturing industry.
  • You can successfully guide cross-functional teams without formal authority.
  • You can analyze a data set and performance/operational metrics.
  • You’re results-oriented and can work independently.
  • You have excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • You’re entrepreneurial (or significantly intrapreneurial), with demonstrated success, and learnings from setbacks.
  • You’re experienced in developing or managing products integrated into chemical or energy systems.
  • You’ve worked with steam methane reformers or other types of large-scale hydrogen supply at an engineering firm, gas supplier, or end-user, among others.
  • You understand industrial and technical design, and application of the plant interfaces with the overall balance of plant.


Where We Are and What We Offer

  • This is a full-time position
  • Competitive, negotiable salary
  • Vesting equity in a venture-backed, climate-tech startup
  • Health and retirement benefits, with flexible options
  • Unlimited vacation policy, with flexible company holidays
  • Paid parental and sick leave
