Senior Electronics Engineer
Heimdal builds machines that permanently capture and store atmospheric CO2. Congress has passed legislation (IRA) guaranteeing a price of $180/tCO2 removed via Direct Air Capture until 2032. We are building technology that profitably captures CO2 with this tax credit, right here in the United States.
About the Company We are on a mission to lay the foundation for the climate changed future and slash net emissions by 90%. We are building out a new product and will be adding our first set of internal software engineering expertise. We are backed by renowned investors including Y Combinator, Cathexis Ventures, Sergey Brin of Google, Sam Altman’s Apollo Projects, Marc Benioff’s TIME and many others.
The position will be based out of our HQ in Uxbridge, London. Our London location serves as our main engineering and R&D hub and is the base for our global projects. The company also has a hub in San Francisco for non-engineering functions.
We are looking for someone who obsesses over and takes ownership over their domain problems in the context of the product, putting the user at the centre of everything we build.
We sponsor visas to the UK.

We use abundant minerals, in a looping process, and existing industrial equipment to capture CO2. Our process starts with carbonation of an abundant sorbent. Over a short period of time, through passive contacting with atmospheric air, the material is carbonated, whereafter the captured CO2 is stripped and captured by heating the material to high temperatures. CO2 off-gas is captured and stored geologically, permanently.
