At Bluemethane, our mission is to prevent a billion tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions from water. We’re looking for a brilliant CFD engineer to play a critical and exciting part in these engineering efforts. Our technology will measure, capture and use methane from water. This will permanently remove methane, reduce global warming, and support the energy transition by unlocking a new source of energy.

Key responsibilities As the CFD Engineer, you’ll transform Bluemethane’s conceptual technologies into optimized and efficient processes. You’ll work closely with the CTO to further develop our technologies. You will study our conceptual designs, troubleshoot flaws, optimize designs and prototypes and implement Digital Twins of our technology. You might design, build, and test bench scale prototypes and proof of concepts. You’ll also work alongside a highly skilled and motivated team, occasionally travel to potential locations around the world, and plenty of other activities typical of an early-stage start-up.
