About Charm

Our mission is to reverse climate change and return the atmosphere to 280 ppm CO₂, profitably. We convert waste biomass into carbon-rich bio-oil and inject it into permanent, underground storage as carbon removal, or reform the bio-oil to produce syngas for fossil-free steel.

Our carbon removal pathway took off in 2020 with initial purchases from customers like Stripe, Shopify & Microsoft. In 2021 and 2022 we delivered thousands of tons of carbon removal via off-the-shelf pathways, and also deployed our first R&D prototype pyrolyzer of our own. In the next 18 months, we'll build and deploy the next pyrolyzer revision, demonstrate our fossil-free ironmaking pilot, substantially expand our operations in Colorado and put thousands of tonnes of CO₂e underground.

We're looking to expand our team of ambitious creative and hands-on engineers, fabricators, operators, and forward-thinking humans. We value psychological safety and collaboration. We take calculated risks and don't sweep mistakes under the rug; instead, we pin them to the wall and learn from them. We value that everyone’s unique backgrounds and perspectives shape their work. We encourage you to read our company values.

Come help us reverse climate change. Gigatons or bust!

About the role

As our Facilities Technician based out of our “Miniforge” you’ll report into the Operations team and be responsible for a myriad of management and operational duties for our ironmaking and field operations teams. You’ll be an essential member of the team who’ll work directly with fellow Charmers, vendors and occasional third parties. The ideal candidate is safety-minded, proactive and is able to effectively prioritize multiple tasks on a day-to-day basis.


    • First and foremost, help us keep our workplace safe, clean, and productive for all Charmers.
    • Support site safety by regularly auditing our office and shop. Keep first aid supplies in stock and safety equipment in good condition (e.g. fire extinguishers, eye wash stations, spill kits). Provide recommendations for improving safety policies, procedures and best practices based on your onsite observations.
    • Schedule, oversee and assist contractor work such as new electrical service or plug installation, tent construction and building security installation. Ensure contractor work is safe, high quality and maintains the cleanliness of the facility. Oversee cleaning of office, shop, and yard.
    • Perform preventative maintenance on HVAC and plumbing as needed. Perform interior and exterior repairs including building repairs (e.g. painting, door and door hardware repair, fence and gate repair).Manage shipping and receiving. Operate onsite machinery (e.g. forklift) to unload delivery vehicles and move received packages and equipment to the appropriate workspace within the Miniforge.
    • Purchase and distribute office supplies, first aid, groceries, and daily lunches to enable our team to stay happy and productive.


    • Experience in office or shop management. Experience in an industrial facility or fabrication shop would be considered an asset.
    • Experience operating a forklift or willingness to learn. Relevant training would be considered an asset.
    • Have a proactive, professional and “can do” attitude.
    • Exceptional time management and organizational skills.
    • Desire to wear multiple hats with an organized, efficient working style.
    • Passionate about contributing to our mission and growing the company.
We recently opened our new “Miniforge” with 30,000 sq ft of office and shop space, including insulated high bays. Our ironmaking and field operations team are preparing to move in and we’re excited for a Facilities Technician to help keep our team safe and supercharge our productivity in the new space!

Visa Sponsorship Policy

Since we are a small startup, certain accommodations for visa sponsorship may not be within our capability. At this time, Charm Industrial is only sponsoring E3 and TN visas.


The nature of our work requires the vast majority of our team to be in-person full time. As the COVID-19 pandemic has evolved, we've continuously adapted our safety policy to keep our team safe and productive. Our current safety policy requires the attestation of COVID-19 vaccination to work at Charm. Additionally, we ask that all of our employees and visitors stay home and rest if they have any cold/flu/covid/sickness symptoms.
