We are growing our team and are looking for an experienced Senior Mechanical Engineer with machine design experience using SolidWorks, who will play a key role in supporting the engineering and manufacturing team as we move from design to implementation of our containerized green ammonia production technology. This position will function as an advisor to less experienced engineers on the team and will report to the Design Innovation Mechanical and Project Execution Manager. As we are a growing organization, the reporting structure may shift in the near future.
Who we are:
FuelPositive is a Canadian-based, clean technology company, working to fight climate change by creating and developing practical, clean, and sustainable carbon-free solutions that can be implemented economically now. Above all, we believe in being kind – to the earth, to each other, and to ourselves. We believe that being kind will pay dividends for us all. It’s all about Fuel for a Mindful World.
What we make:
Our lead product, an onsite, containerized Green Ammonia production system that is modular and scalable, will revolutionize clean energy through a patent-pending, first-of-its-kind technology invented in Canada. The system takes air, water and a sustainable electricity source to produce green anhydrous ammonia with no carbon emissions. Adoption will dramatically support global targets to reduce CO2 emissions. And our decentralized, in situ approach will bring supply chain independence to our first customers – farmers – for the first time.

What YOU will do:
In this position you will work closely with the engineering and manufacturing teams on our current technologies pertaining to the generation of hydrogen, nitrogen, and ammonia. Your objective is to support the commercialization of our green ammonia production systems along with developing technological advancements in the areas of mechanical design including mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic, using SolidWorks CAD systems. You will produce and review drawings and bills of materials for accuracy, material selection, machinability, fit and finishes. You are a wizard at analyzing designs and systems for compliance to applicable standards. Additionally, you will develop test plans to verify that equipment meets all relevant specifications including safety standards. You will be supporting documentation, including operator/service manuals, preparing equipment specifications, data sheets, and developing process design criteria as a basis of the process design. Safety is a priority for everything we do, so you will participate in process safety engineering in every step of the process.
