Staff Process Development Engineer, Coatings

Company: Twelve
Location: Berkeley
Posted on: November 21, 2022

Job Description:

Twelve is a new kind of chemical company built for the climate era. Our breakthrough technology eliminates emissions by turning CO2 into essential products. We are a team of scientists, engineers and problem solvers on a mission to fundamentally shift the way the world addresses climate change and lead the transition to a fossil free future with our carbon transformation technology.
Job BriefWe need you as part of a team dedicated to creating recipes that forge the layered structures of our CO2-eating membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs) at the heart of our electrolyzers. Initially you will jump into our late-stage R&D efforts focused on producing controlled depositions that yield precise functionality. As you learn our process, you will hone established methods and initiate new techniques that measure the process outputs and quality checks. Concurrently, you will work with a cross-functional team to scale these wet deposition processes to the pilot scale (and then beyond) to help us introduce the world's first CO2 electrolyzer at scale.
What you will do

  • Optimize our spray process to produce coatings with controlled thickness and morphologies.
  • Work with product developers to devise coatings to meet product specifications and perhaps exceed expectations.
  • Co-develop metrology methods with characterization experts to control spray processes to maintain top product performance and reduce rejection.
  • Join a large, cross-functional team to commission and validate Twelve's first-in-class MEA fabrication pilot line that will support the world's first at-scale CO2 electrolyzer.
    Who you are
    • Have several years of experience in developing wet deposition processes to yield dried layers with intended functional purposes such as slot die, gravure, spray, and screen or stencil printing.
    • Excel at characterizing, or understanding characterization data, for inks, slurries, pastes, or any similar liquid medium used in the above listed processes.
    • Strong understanding and respect for property-performance relationships in deposited composite layers composed of soft organic and inorganic materials.
    • Proficient in specifying, installing, and validating pilot-scale equipment used to deposit and dry wet depositions at the pilot scale.
    • Care about process documentation and clear intra- and inter-team communication of technical ideas and conclusions.
    • Expert in analyzing and presenting data (experience with JMP a plus), and at least a minimum familiarity with accessing data from a database.
    • You prioritize safety throughout your workflow.
      Twelve Benefits
      • Medical, dental, and vision coverage
      • Paid sick days and vacation
      • Competitive salary and equity compensation commensurate with experience
      • Diverse and inclusive work environment
        We believe that the unique contributions of each individual is the driver of our success. To make sure that our products and culture continue to incorporate everyone's perspectives and experience we never discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, or marital, veteran, or disability status.
