Coatings Engineer

Full time
Company Summary
We are an exciting, fast-growing biotech company that has changed the rules for how liquids move. Viscous liquids are sticky, and they don’t flow easily—think ketchup, toothpaste, heavy oil, or paint. This creates a lot of waste and inefficiency and handcuffs the way we design. But not anymore. Invented at MIT, our liquid surface technology eliminates the friction between liquids and solids to help liquids flow with ease and enables breakthroughs that used to be impossible.

Position Summary
We are looking for a Senior Coatings Engineer to help us develop and commercialize our revolutionary technology. If you have a background in fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, the physical chemistry of surfaces, or interfacial phenomena, we would love to hear from you!

What You'll Do:
Quickly master LIS science through independent study, tutorials and training sessions.
Study and experiment independently to gain LIS expertise that will enable you to grow in critical R&D and project management functions as the company scales.
Develop test methods and best practices to accelerate coating development.
Lead large, client-funded coating development projects, managing clients as well as internal project teams, and consultants.
Develop and maintain project plans and road maps and act as key point of contact for clients and internal management. 
Negotiates with equipment and raw ingredient suppliers.

Who You Are:
Experience with product development and commercialization, including managing projects, teams, and customer relationships.
Strong hands-on experience and proven ability to design effective experiments.
Proven ability to handle a fast-paced, dynamic environment.
Ambitious and comfortable with ambiguity.
Start-up experience is desirable.
Masters or PhD Degree in Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Material Science, or Physical Chemistry preferred.
We understand it takes a diverse team of highly intelligent, passionate, curious, and creative people to solve the challenges we are working on. Our dynamic team of humans have incredible perspectives to share, just as we know you do, and we take great pride in being an equal opportunity workplace.
