Senior Electrical Engineer

Infinite Cooling’s mission is to mitigate water scarcity around the world. We help power plants and other industrial plants reduce their water consumption and water treatment costs by recovering water from their cooling tower exhaust. We have a patent-pending technology developed at MIT that uses electric fields to capture water from the plumes leaving cooling towers. We are a vibrant startup based in Somerville, Massachusetts, and we are on a mission to be a global leader in the water services industry for industrial applications. Infinite Cooling is venture-backed and has won the MIT $100K, MassChallenge, the DOE national Cleantech competition, an NSF SBIR, and numerous other awards.

 We are looking for a sharp, tenacious and creative Senior Electrical Engineer to join our team and work on all product development stages from R&D to design, prototyping, and testing through to manufacturing and installation.  Strong communication, flexibility and the desire to “wear many hats” will all be essential skills for a successful applicant.
