Carbon capture equipment for ships
The shipping industry accounts for ~3% of global CO2 emissions. If it were a country, it would rank above Germany (the 6th largest emitter in the world).
Currently, there’s no solution for ships to go 100% clean. Alternative power sources like hydrogen, ammonia, and onboard batteries are still 10-20 years away from maturity for large ships.
Seabound captures CO2 emissions from ships.
We are building a retrofittable device that traps the CO2 from a ship’s exhaust gas. It has the potential to be one of the simplest, safest, and most affordable solutions for zero-emissions shipping.
Earlier this year, we proved the concept on land and secured 6 LOIs (Letters of Intent) from major shipowners to purchase our systems from 2024 onwards. In the next 12-18 months, we will develop and demonstrate our first capture unit at sea. We are now building a founding team of engineers to help realize and demonstrate this new category of maritime climate tech.
You will have significant influence over all stages of the development process of a novel ship-based carbon capture system, from R&D, design and prototyping, to manufacturing scale up and installations.
What You’ll Do:
We are looking for:
We are hiring remotely but you might need to travel internationally for a few weeks at a time, since we have partners and workshops at various locations.
The compensation range provided is only indicative and commensurates with level of experience, location, as well as candidate’s preference for salary versus equity.
Seabound is an equal opportunity employer. We value diversity and strive to create an environment that is inclusive to all employees.
We will do brief intros, then dive into your resume, and finally ask you some technical screening questions. This is intended as an initial assessment of overall fit and basic technical skills.
This is intended as a deeper dive into your technical abilities, design experience, maritime knowledge, and strategic thinking. Besides deep technical expertise, we also look for ownership, breadth of knowledge, ability to learn quickly and incorporate new information, ability to work with other disciplines, and ability to work under uncertainty and execute against tight timelines.
This will be a time for you to present and justify your solutions to the problem set in front of a panel of experts (20 min), followed by a 40 min Q&A. In addition to the characteristics listed above, we also look for effective communication and collaboration skills.
This is an opportunity for us to learn about your motivations, values, and ambitions, understand your work and interpersonal styles, and how you’d bring culture add to the team. We look for ownership, drive, diligence, and resourcefulness. We value diversity as well as a shared sense of climate urgency.
