Infinite Cooling's mission is to mitigate water scarcity around the world. We help power plants and other industrial plants reduce their water consumption and water treatment costs by recovering water from their cooling tower exhaust. We have a patented technology developed at MIT that uses electric fields to capture water from the plumes leaving cooling towers. We are a vibrant startup based in the Boston area, and we are on a mission to be a global leader in the water services industry for industrial applications. Infinite Cooling is venture-backed and has raised over $16M of capital and was awarded over $3M of prizes and grants.

We are looking for a sharp, tenacious, and creative R&D Engineer to join our team and lead research and development efforts to inform design changes and optimizations for Infinite Cooling's products.

       Model various processes based on physics and empirical correlations, analytically and numerically

       Analyze large amounts of data and develop algorithms to translate data into insights

       Generate ideas and produce proof-of-concept designs for new product features

       Apply analytical solutions to physical problems starting with first principles

       Become a subject matter expert in our technology and provide technical support to the rest of the team

       Participate in requirements definition and system-level validation testing 

       Lead team discussions on design alternatives to solve complex thermal-fluids problems, develop new features, and optimize systems

Preferred skills and experience:

  • BS or equivalent in Engineering or Physics. Advanced degree is preferred
  • Professional experience in addition to academic background preferred
  • Strong track-record of successfully applying research to inform industrial product design
  • Experience with data acquisition and complex data analysis using standard tools such as Python and Arduino
