The Perks

Location

Squamish, B.C. is a world-class outdoor destination with an unmatched quality of life and proximity to the natural world. Vancouver is 60 minutes away, offering urban conveniences and access to a major clean energy hub. Our office has views of the ocean and the 700-metre high Stawamus Chief, one of the largest granite monoliths in the world and a rock climbing icon.

Professional Development

We’re invested in employee growth and success. We attract the best-of-the-best and strive to retain our top talent by providing professional development opportunities and training. Our employees are encouraged to take advantage of this support to strengthen skills and advance their contributions to CE.

Fun

Staff ski day, an on-site beach volleyball court, a communal garden and an annual Calgary Stampede-themed party. We believe having fun is an important part of work.

Time to Recharge

In addition to their vacation days, each employee receives seven flex days each year that can be used with shorter notice (for say, a powder day or an impromptu long weekend with family).

Room to Grow

As a fast-growing company, CE can provide our committed team members with a path for growth, increased responsibility and new challenges. We foster an environment of progression and create avenues for employees to take their careers to the next step.

An Innovative Environment

CE was born from thinking differently. This attitude has remained strong, and our employees enjoy an atmosphere of boundary pushing. If you thrive in an environment where creative experimentation is embraced, and challenging the status quo is a way of life, this is the place for you.

Current Opportunities

Jr. Materials Management Specialist

Reporting to the Manager, Procurement, you will be part of the back-office administrative team, providing support for the planning and logistics of the flow of goods and services within the purchasing portfolio. Experience in a purchasing/supply chain roll or warehousing environment is an asset.


Plant Operator

CE is rapidly progressing towards commercialization of its Direct Air Capture and AIR TO FUELSTM technology. We are now looking for Plant Operators who will commission and operate the world’s first fully integrated AIR TO FUELSTM plant in Squamish, BC. This is a technical role for a Chemical Technologist or Technician, or Plant Operator who understands industrial processes, operations, equipment and laboratory analytics. The ideal candidate will have 4 to 8 years experience as a Plant Operator in a chemical/industrial process plant.

I have been working at Carbon Engineering since June 2019 as a process modeling/simulation engineer. To join CE during its growth phase, as we commercialize and build the world’s first large scale DAC technology, is a privilege. No two days are the same. I get to work on interesting projects with tight deadlines that can be challenging at times. I also get to interact with highly motivated group engineers/ scientists who have graduated from top universities across the globe. CE strives to promote work/life balance by instituting HR policies beneficial to employees. I don’t regret the move from the Netherlands to Squamish, which is also the outdoors capital of Canada.
- Naveen, Senior Process Modelling Engineer
At CE I have had the opportunity to work and grow with really smart and nice people. This is because CE provides a fast and interesting start-up atmosphere, where priorities can change quickly and one is empowered to adapt and contribute. This setting provides ample opportunity for learning new skills, as well as for gaining a holistic perspective on what it takes to bring new technology to market. We work hard at CE, but it’s very rewarding to learn and accomplish a goal with your teammates – especially as we share a common value of wanting to help address climate change!
- Caroline, Product Chemist
At CE I have designed and tested bench scale equipment, operated our DAC pilot plant, and commissioned our AIR TO FUELSTM system. I now work on the mechanical design of future plants. There are exciting problems to solve at every level of the organization, and there are rarely easy answers. Having to constantly figure things out is a challenge but doing so with a talented and spirited team is my favourite part of working here. I could not ask for a more dynamic or exciting start to my career.
- Trevor, Mechanical Engineer, EIT
At Carbon Engineering, no two days are the same. I get to operate things, fix things, build things, design things, install things, and sometimes even demolish things. And my favourite part? We've got a team of cool canine coworkers at the office every day!"
