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 R&D Engineer, Thermal Processes who will be wholly responsible for developing and executing elaborate research and development plans that will yield significant improvements to the team's current process simulation and design efforts.

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 get immersed in all aspects of process development, and the timing to join could not be better.

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

You'd bring forward:

  • A M.S. or PhD in Chemical, Mechanical, Petroleum Engineering or similar with 3-8+ years' experience in process simulation, research and hands-on testing.

  • Technical expertise in the fields of heat transfer, thermodynamics, reaction kinetics, process simulation (Aspen software expertise required) and process optimization.

  • Proven track record of success leading and managing complex R&D projects for gas processing, air separation, turbo machinery.

If you want to join a high-growth business that sits at the frontier of energy innovation, you should apply to 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.
