Head of Science

Holy Grail developed a direct air carbon capture technology that uses electrons to capture CO2 from the atmosphere. We are looking for proactive candidates who are ready to take ownership and are passionate about creating a sustainable solution to removing excess CO2 from the atmosphere. The ultimate goal of Holy Grail is to contribute to the long-term sustainability of life on Earth.

We are looking for a Head of Science to join our team and help bring our modular CO2 scrubbers to market.

This role will be located in Mountain View, CA. Candidates should be able to start as soon as possible.

Requirements:

  • Detail-oriented with a creative approach to science and engineering
  • A high degree of autonomy and independence
  • Intrinsic motivation with a fundamental love of science
  • Ability to lead and adapt quickly
  • Understanding of how small molecules react and diffuse
  • Experience in characterization of electrolyte systems
  • Experience with electrochemical testing (CV, CA, EIS, CP)

Responsibilities:

  • Select materials for electrochemical systems
  • Optimize electrochemical systems
  • Lead a team of research scientists, electrochemists, and research associates
  • Apply research findings from analogous fields
  • Collaborate with mechanical engineers, chemical engineers, and design engineers to develop manufacturing processes

Nice to have:

  • Experience with materials characterization (TGA, FTIR, DSC)
  • Ability to communicate complex concepts
  • Advanced degree in chemistry, material science, or related fields
  • Experience in building and leading teams

What we offer:

You will join a team that is passionate about having an impact on climate change. We care about the optimal way to solve a problem and nurture a culture of creativity and collaboration. We care about quick iterations, minimizing assumptions, and we use emojis to label our chemicals. We work on interesting technical problems and provide support and resources to tackle them.

Impact: your contribution will directly impact our technical milestones and you will have full ownership of your projects. We don’t micromanage

No politics: we give you the resources to test all your wildest ideas in hours or days, not months. If there is a chance that something will advance our progress we will test it as soon as possible

Ownership: not only you will own your projects you will also own part of the company

Autonomy: we welcome your independent perspective and encourage you to set and manage your time to achieve our shared goals

Flexibility: we cultivate an informal environment that is more fun and less rigid compared to academia and larger companies
