Job Description

Principal Modeling and Simulation Engineer  

Who we are: 

We’re a passionate, hard-working, and quick-moving group of people that are driven by the mission to save the planet. We believe we can make a difference in the battle against climate change by leading the carbon capture and sequestration industry and we are building a like-minded team to help do just that.  

 Carbon America is the first vertically integrated company in the industry – a one-stop-shop of engineers, project managers, developers, and financiers focused on capturing more CO2 in shorter amounts of time and at lower costs.  

 As a start-up, there are a few key attributes that all Carbon America employees possess. We are creative problem-solvers, we wear many hats, we are agile, and we work as a championship team. It is important that every hire connects to our vision, mission, and values as a company. Join the leader in the CCS space in making climate change history™! 

Job Overview: 

The Modeling and Simulation Engineer is responsible for solving challenging multi-physics and techno-economics optimization problems and advancing modeling and simulation applications of Carbon America’s products and services, i.e. cryogenic carbon capture and related technologies.  

This position will own the development and use of the engineering models and tools, which will exist in custom software created in Julia, Python, and Simulink. Critical to this role is a deep understanding of physics, mathematics, and programming. This role will be responsible for the development of modeling standards and baseline architecture by which all systems will be modeled, validated, and optimized. 

As a Principal-level employee this position will supervise and mentor other engineers. Having a Principal title implies that this position will need to aid in strategic decisions for Carbon America’s R&D program. The Principal Engineer will also be expected to represent Carbon America in various external facing activities such as, but not limited to: Department of Energy engagement, partnership discussions, and investor relationships.  

Knowledge, Skills, Abilities: 


  • 6+ years of experience in mathematical modeling for engineering applications 

  • Expertise in building custom engineering software tools 

  • Expertise in developing the right mathematical model for the job (not too simple to be inaccurate, but not too complex to be slow or finicky) 

  • Understanding of software engineering best practices 

  • At least a basic knowledge of heat transfer 

  • At least a basic knowledge of fluid dynamics 

  • At least a basic knowledge of thermodynamics, especially fluid state calculations and liquid/vapor equilibrium modeling 

  • Experience in a programming language, e.g. Julia, Python, C++ 

  • Ability to work both autonomously and collaboratively as needed 

  • Excellent communication skills, including active listening skills 

  • MS, or PhD (Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Applied Mathematics, or Physics preferred); if BS, then additional years of experience preferred. 



  • Expertise in solving differential equations,
