Charm Industrial is a venture-backed startup in San Francisco with a mission to end climate change, profitably. Our initial focus is on the industrial hydrogen market, where we've developed a process that produces renewable hydrogen while also sequestering CO2 from the atmosphere. When scaled up, this process alone can offset up to 5% of global carbon emissions. And that's just the start!

Our process is based around the gasification of high-yield energy crops, with a novel gasification system designed and built fully in-house. We've just completed testing of our prototype system and are beginning development of our pilot-scale plant. To help with this effort we're looking to expand our team of super creative and hands-on engineers and fabricators.

We’re currently looking for a dedicated Fabricator/Technician. You would fabricate and coordinate manufacturing for parts of the gasifier, as well as support assembly and testing efforts. You would be responsible for the build-out & organization of our yard shop space and tool storage. We’re looking for someone with hands-on fabrication and welding experience, who is flexible, likes to make cool things and cares about the planet! Perks include: flexible hours, cool swag, and saving the world.
