Posted on Monday, March 18, 2024
Deep Sky is the world’s first gigaton-scale carbon removal project developer. As a commercial venture, we build carbon removal infrastructure projects and sell carbon credits to remove billions of tonnes of CO2 from the Earth’s atmosphere.
We have strong fundamentals:
- Expert at complex market systems and finding product-market fit
- Proven success in scaling startups and operating sophisticated businesses
- Strong relationship with capital markets, government, and regional communities in Canada
We envision a future where:
- Tech-based carbon removal projects are the benchmark for premium durable and measurable carbon removal within a network of - mandatory and voluntary carbon credit markets
- The planet’s carbon equilibrium has been restored through both drastic emission reductions and large-scale carbon removal
- Carbon removal facilities are considered everyday infrastructure; appreciated for their vital service and light footprint
Deep Sky is at the forefront of combating climate change through innovative carbon removal technologies. Our mission is to develop and implement scalable solutions for direct air capture systems. We are embarking on an ambitious project, Deep Sky Labs, our innovation and commercialization facility designed to make a significant impact on carbon reduction. We will be using this facility to identify leading technologies to partner and scale to commercial production. Deep Sky One will be our first commercial facility designed to make a significant impact on carbon reduction. To achieve this milestone, we are seeking talented Carbon Capture Engineers to aid in the design and engineering of this state-of-the-art facility.
As a Carbon Capture Engineer, you will play a vital role in supporting the development, implementation, and optimization of direct air capture systems. You will work closely with senior engineers and cross-functional teams to design and engineer our state-of-the-art direct air capture facilities.

In this role, you will work very closely with the Chief Carbon Scientist and Head of Engineering to:

  • Assist in the design and develop efficient processes for direct air balance of plants (e.g., liquefaction of CO2 for transport)
  • Collaborate with senior engineers and production teams to identify process improvement opportunities and implement solutions
  • Conduct simulations and modeling to optimize carbon capture technologies
  • Conduct experiments, collect data, and analyze results to optimize process parameters and performance
  • Develop and maintain process documentation, including standard operating procedures (SOPs) and work instructions
  • Participate in risk assessments, root cause analyses, and corrective/preventive action (CAPA) initiatives
  • Ensure compliance with industry regulations, safety standards, and company policies
  • Provide technical support during the construction, commissioning, and operation phases
  • Stay updated on industry trends, best practices, and emerging technologies related to process engineering

An ideal candidate has:

  • Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or related field.
  • Previous work experience (including internships and co-ops) in carbon capture, gas handling, or other emerging climate technologies
  • Strong analytical skills with the ability to collect, interpret, and present data effectively. Start-up experience is preferred.
  • Proficiency in process modeling and simulation software is preferred (e.g., Aspen Plus, MATLAB, COMSOL).
  • Excellent communication, teamwork, and problem-solving skills.
  • Ability to work independently, prioritize tasks, and manage time efficiently.
  • Adaptability and willingness to learn new technologies and methodologies.

Compensation and benefits:

  • A competitive salary based on experience and participation in the capital of our innovative company in the climate field.
  • Health, vision, and dental coverage.
  • State-of-the-art Apple hardware provided
  • Unlimited vacation
