Engineering Design Lead

We usually respond within three days

Our vision is a simple one: the atmosphere, restored.🌍

Our zero-carbon process reimagines the production of lime, a mineral that naturally removes CO2 from the atmosphere. Used in everything from cement and steel production to water filters, lime touches our lives in many ways, but remains highly carbon-intensive to make. Our technology changes this.

In addition to decarbonizing the lime sector, our zero-carbon lime enables multiple pathways to CO2 removal, and we aim to be the global leader in this space.💚

What you'll be doing.

As the Engineering Design Lead, you will be at the forefront of:

  • Delivering engineering studies and design packages from proposals/concept through to FEED.
  • Growing, developing, and championing a multi-disciplinary design team as we scale.
  • Leading the development and delivery of engineering deliverables: H&MBs, PFDs, P&IDs, Process Descriptions, etc.
  • Ensuring all tasks are delivered to a high standard and in line with the schedule.
  • Active contribution to innovation and process improvement.
  • Providing technical guidance and expertise during study execution.
  • Supporting active pilot demonstration tests to validate technology performance and scalability.
  • Collecting data from pilot demonstration tests and applying learning for scale up technology
  • Collaborating with the commercialisation team to take a scale-up design to market.
  • Interfacing with both internal and external stakeholders on progress updates, outcomes and technical issues.
  • Providing practical, yet innovative solutions to our clients’ challenges.
  • Collaborating with our R&D team to deliver the “engineering” model of world-class carbonation equipment and Origen’s future processes.

What we're looking for.

  • A passion for restoring the atmosphere, whilst being able to embrace the ever-evolving and (sometimes!) ambiguous nature of a hardware start-up!
  • An innovative mindset; someone who explores new concepts and creative solutions to engineering challenges. & able to make decisions in a fast paced environment.
  • Persistent when faced with challenges and setbacks, taking lessons learned into consideration when applying methodical problem-solving techniques.
  • Experience taking a concept through to scale-up.
  • Willingness to both teach and be taught themselves!
  • Process engineering knowledge, ideally focusing on kilns, oxy-fuel, combustion, industrial gases, materials handling, minerals processing – or similar, transferrable chemical processes.
  • Can interface and manage engineering design firms and/or EPC contractors.
  • Familiarity with working in – and leading – multidisciplinary design teams within a relevant/transferrable industry.
  • Bachelor’s Degree in Chemical Engineering, or relevant engineering discipline.

What we can offer you.

  • A fully remote working environment – we don’t have an office, but we do have:
    • A project site that you’re welcome to visit at any time
    • A lab space you are welcome to visit
    • Access to WeWork offices across the country!
  • UNCAPPED annual leave
  • Equity in Origen in the form of stock options
  • Performance dialogue and reward scheme
  • Employee Assistance Program
  • A grown-up work environment, where you're trusted to deliver with no micromanagement
