Job Description

As the Engineering Lead, you will play a pivotal role in overseeing the design of the Aerbon DAC system and when built to optimize the operational aspects of the facilities. This role requires a solid engineering background, drive and attention to detail. If successful, the role may lead to a Head of Operations role.

Key Responsibilities:

Design engineering:

  • Provide input on the mechanical design of the system

  • Work with consultants on front-end engineering design studies

Supply chain management

  • Work directly or with the Aerbon team on ensuring a stable and cost-effective supply chain


  • Oversee pilot plant and testing

What we offer

We offer an opportunity to join a start-up with unique technology and many market opportunities, where you can make a difference and shape the direction of the company. Would you like to take part in this journey and shape yours and our future? We are seeking someone that wants to join a high aspiring start-up as co-founder with all the risks and rewards associated with it. We will offer you to become a co-founder and co-owner of the company. Salary will not be offered until seed funding has been secured.

During the first 3-6 months the role will be part time. Thereafter, the intention is for you to become full-time and a founding partner of the company. The level of involvement is dependent on traction and financing but we foresee the person is able to initially spend at least 30-50% of full time on the project and be able to ramp this up to full time should this be necessary in the future.

Skills & Requirements
  • Master's and/or PhD degree in Engineering or a related field.

  • Proven experience in mechanical design of process equipment

  • Experience with handling experimental rigs or pilot facilities or large scale plants (is a merit)

  • Excellent leadership and team management skills.

  • Motivated to work in a startup environment

About the company

Aerbon is a pioneering company specializing in Direct Air Capture technology based on research from KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Aerbon’s mission is to reverse emissions, addressing the global challenge of climate change. We are seeking a highly skilled and motivated individual to join our team as the Engineering Lead.

Aerbon accomplishments to date:

  • Working prototype in the lab

  • In the process of filing a patent application

  • Strong verified interest from customers and suppliers

  • Interest from several energy companies to host a pilot plant

  • Secured 1.3 MSEK in equity and grant financing

The journey ahead:

We are a spin-off from world leading KTH research with a solid technological base. The technology has been proven in the lab and the next phase is to prove the technology in a pilot plant of 1000 tons per annum capacity. We need to perform detailed engineering of the plant, procure necessary equipment and construct the plant, as well as plan for and run tests once built.

For this we need an entrepreneurial and driven new team member to help us on this challenging journey to prove the technology in a pilot plant and looking further to build and operate large-scale plants.
