Synthio Chemicals is seeking a chemical engineer to develop new production approaches for specialty chemicals. This position includes designing, building and testing prototype and pilot production hardware for our advanced production of specialty chemicals. As a startup, we need hands-on people with an ability to think independently to translate concepts into working hardware. The successful candidate will have expertise in advanced continuous flow reactor designs for scale-up of chemical synthesis, including process design and equipment selection, experimental set-up, testing and analysis and process automation. The chemical engineer will work with a multidisciplinary team of scientists and engineers to move new synthesis approaches from lab scale to production.
Synthio Chemicals manufactures fine and specialty chemicals using proprietary equipment and synthetic routes. We use process intensification and automation to produce materials with improved quality and lower cost than conventional batch manufacturing. Our approach enables scalable manufacturing with hazardous materials or highly energetic reactions that isn’t practical in batch synthesis.
Synthio Chemicals is a rapidly-growing high-technology startup company founded by a team of Colorado serial entrepreneurs. We’re going to disrupt traditional supply chains for specialty chemicals through the use of novel, high-throughput continuous reactors. Our technology allow us to produce high-value specialty chemicals at high purity and low waste generation, all in equipment one tenth the size of conventional reactors. If you are self-motivated individual that thrives in a fast-paced, collaborative environment, and are looking for a chance to join a growing, highly-qualified team pursuing both cutting-edge research and highly profitable production, we welcome your application.
