Reference ACRE-12321

Acre has partnered with a publicly traded multi-billion-dollar startup that has piloted a first-of-a-kind energy production technology offering emission reductions greater than 90% of comparable technologies. Once fully commercialized, their technology will grant tens of millions of people across the world access to clean, reliable and low-cost energy.

Their Chief Innovation Officer is looking for a Senior or Principal Process Engineer who will be wholly responsible for leading the design and development of cryogenic separation systems and processes. Cryogenic separation is critical to their core technology, and this person will ultimately help them create a better product. Given you'd be reporting directly to the CIO, the level of impact you'd have on technology development is high, and you'd have widespread exposure to the entire technical organization. This is an opportunity to have a high level of ownership in all aspects of the cradle-to-grave process R&D, design, and development of cryogenic systems development.

Please note this position requires the candidate to be located in, or open to relocating to Houston, TX.

You'd bring forward:

  • An M.S. or PhD in Chemical, Mechanical or similar with 5-8+ years of R&D experience designing cryogenic processes

  • Technical expertise in the fields of cryogenics, process modelling, heat transfer, thermal management, process simulation (Aspen software expertise required) and process optimization.

  • Experience developing PFDs, mass balances, cost analysis, and process design packages

  • Experience evaluating suppliers, procuring equipment, and managing vendors

  • Proven track record of success leading and managing complex R&D projects for cryogenic applications

If you want to join a high-growth business that sits at the frontier of energy innovation, you should apply for this role. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have a large impact on globally impactful technology development, and even if you feel like you may not be the best fit for whatever reasons, we still encourage you to apply. We have many positions open with this client, and they are building out numerous engineering teams as we speak.
