Backed by Bill Gates’ Breakthrough Energy Ventures and Chris Sacca’s Lowercarbon Capital, Antora Energy turns sunshine and wind into zero-carbon 24/7 heat and power, cheaper than fossil fuels, accelerating the world’s pathway to decarbonize industry and electricity. Propelled by a world-class team that includes leaders in their fields, Antora will eliminate gigatons of emissions while increasing U.S. energy security, reducing our dependence on global supply chains, supporting well-paying jobs, and protecting marginalized communities from industrial pollution.

We are growing our company with people who put team and mission first, value connection through laughter and joy, and build with humility and openness. Our people are our most valuable asset, and we are committed to continue building a diverse, passionate, and creative team dedicated to providing clean, reliable, and affordable energy to everyone on earth. People join our team to do the most fulfilling and impactful work of their lives on climate change. Join one of the world’s most transformative climate tech companies. We’re ready to decarbonize the global economy. Are you?

Position Responsibilities:
- Support materials design and/or selection to drive issue resolution, performance, and fundamental understanding of material performance
- Assist in the model development and validation of high temperature performance of materials
- Develop computational workflows to enable thermodynamic and kinetic description of high temperature solid/gas reactions
- Assist in materials characterization as necessary
- Develop material cards to contribute to Antora’s material database and support Antora design engineers
- Create models to demonstrate the possible gains offered by a new material or process

Undergraduate or Graduate Preferred Majors:
- Material Science & Engineering
