NeoCarbon is leading the transition to a carbon-negative world through CO₂ removal.
You will be working at an early-stage start-up that aims to tackle one of humanity’s biggest challenges: reversing climate change. As Head of Engineering, you will get the chance to shape the development of the Engineering team, while also proactively design, implement and test prototypes in quick iterations yourself. You will work closely with our CTO Silvain and our Head of R&D Andrew to bring the products from concept all the way to mass manufacturing and installations at customers’ sites. First, by providing hands-on support to the R&D team to make sure designs are state-of-the-art and optimized for assembly at scale. Then, by being responsible for production, defining required specifications and building relationships with the most relevant suppliers and manufacturing partners. All in all, you will ensure compatibility with efficiency, regulatory and customer constraints; as well as identify and coordinate all production stakeholders to keep quality high and projects on-time and on-budget.
We use existing infrastructure in the form of cooling towers to perform Direct-Air-Capture (DAC) at up to 10x lower costs and time, which makes DAC mass-market ready. Indeed, millions of existing cooling towers around Europe continuously circulate massive amounts of air to remove heat from industrial plants and buildings. By efficiently retrofitting those towers, we remove the carbon dioxide from all this air at very low additional cost. Several billion tons of CO2 could be captured this way annually, a huge share of humanity’s long-term needs.
