Carbon Engineering Ltd. (We’re hiring): Senior Systems Engineer

Carbon Engineering Ltd. (We're hiring)

This is a Full-time position in Dentville, BC posted July 11, 2021.

At Carbon Engineering (CE), our vision is to lead the world in the large-scale removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and advance the shift to a sustainable, carbon-neutral society.

Based in the outdoor recreation hub of Squamish, BC, this role will be a great fit for someone who feels passionately about this vision, and who wants to be a part of a fast-paced culture where contributions are noticed.Position ScopeAs Senior Systems Engineer you will be a part of an elite team to define the requirements and optimize and validate the on-going technical and economic performance of Carbon Engineering’s Direct Air Capture (DAC) and Air to Fuels (A2F) production systems.You will contribute to the end-to-end system engineering of complex processes and equipment.

You will rigorously apply scientific, system engineering, and mathematical principles along with AI/ML methods to analyze the data generated by the operation of a full commercial chemical plant and the data generated by high fidelity dynamic simulations of such plants.This will ultimately reveal new development paths and increase the company understanding of how to improve the commercial performance of the technology.ResponsibilitiesAssessment of operability and control of a highly integrated chemical plant over the entire life cycle.Assist in development of fully integrated engineering and physics-based simulation solutions that represent plant performance in many geographic settings, resource constraints, and seasonally variable operating conditions and time scales.Support the design and implementation of control system emulations for integrated processes and equipment by working with domain experts and creating and/or implementing computer models that facilitate the analysis of information and the co-optimization of interacting sub-processes.Formulate and test assumptions for improved system performance.

Ensure that numerical modeling results are correct and properly represent plant processes.Validate model assumptions and refine models based on validation and commercial plant data.Analysis of the controls strategy of intrinsically dynamic unit operations and integrated systems and development of supervisory control strategies to maximize optimal plant operation.Analysis of historic operational data collected from integrated processes that leads to technical discovery and operational optimization and present process intelligent results to the team and leadership.Participate in the development of simulation-based training tools and decision support systems.Education And ExperiencePh.

D or Masters in Engineering (Chemical, Mechanical, Controls) with 10+ years of combined industry and academic experience in oil & gas, or chemical production.

Proven success in requirements analysis, mathematical modeling and simulation of complex, dynamic chemical and physical systems.

Proficiency in artificial intelligence data analysis and optimization.Strong software programming experience that may include Aspen, MATLAB, Ansys Fluent and Python.Key competenciesProficient in control theory, control systems hardware and software, control logics, communication methods and protocols.Proficient in data analytics and machine learning methods with hands on experience in chemical processing plants operation.Familiar with data pipeline architecture design and ML software production.
