About Mission Zero Technologies:
MZT is an early-stage start-up pioneering a breakthrough Direct Air carbon Capture (DAC) technology that can scrub CO2 from the air using a fraction of the energy compared to incumbent technologies developed by the likes of Carbon Engineering and Climeworks. In the past two and a half years, MZT has evolved its technology from concept to pilot plant scale, successfully raising over £8m from a mixture of private and government funding. MZT’s technology is a hybrid of approaches, combining efficient solution-phase capture of CO2 with a continuous and compact electrochemical separation technology. 
Mission Zero and its work is guided by its principles of bold curiosity, problem solving acumen and hope for the future. We strive to realise a world where humanity has new tools to fight climate change, remove CO2 permanently from the atmosphere and produce everyday products such as concrete blocks or fuels from atmospheric carbon emissions. To do this we need to realise a decentralised Gt supply chain for CO2 sourced directly from the atmosphere.

- Joint direction and oversight, alongside the CTO, to implement R&D and product execution strategies
- Nurturing relationships with suppliers, fabricators and engineering partners
- Monitoring and improving operational efficiency in lab and pilot facilities
The Ideal Candidate will possess:
- Demonstrated experience and qualifications across combinations of process, mechanical, electrical, risk/safety, product engineering disciplines with substantial track record in hardware product design and development
