About the role

About Heimdal

Heimdal builds machines that remove atmospheric CO2 and stabilize the oceans. Every year, 40 billion tonnes of CO2 is released. We use electricity to alkalinize seawater and extract atmospheric carbon dioxide and restore stability to the oceans in the phase of increasing CO2 emissions. We're building a scalable, profitable solution, today.

We are working with established multinationals to supply them with the highest quality carbon credits available and are partnered with some of the largest desalination facilities in the world to bring our soluton to market at scale quicker. We are completing our pilot facility on the Island of Hawai’i in partnership with the solar desalination facility owned and operated by Terraformation in Q2 2022.

You will be working out of our London HQ.

We are venture backed by Y Combinator, Cathexis Ventures, Sam & Max Altman’s Apollo Projects, Marc Benioff and many other investors.

Objectives and responsibilities

  • Hypothesis, design and operations of experiments examining the geochemistry of alkaline mineral neutralization
  • Hydrology determination of specific locations and proposal of potential sites
  • Investigating ocean geochemistry and identification of promising mineral outcrops for our application

Requirements

  • Minimum Bachelors degree in Geology
  • An individual who is very independent who thrives when given freedom
  • An individual who wants to work at a fast-pace and is tired of slow-moving organisations
  • Avid passion for Geochem and Hydrology

Why you should join Heimdal

Heimdal builds machines that permanently capture and store atmospheric CO2 and stabilize the oceans. Every year, 40 billion tonnes of CO2 is released. We use electricity to extract the acid part of seawater, which has been increasing due to increasing concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere.
