Now hiring: Chief Turbomachinery Engineer

December 08, 2021

Coolbrook is currently looking to hire a Chief Turbomachinery Engineer to help us continue to pioneer our technology.

Coolbrook is a Finnish-Dutch technology company on a mission to cut at least 25% of the world’s industrial CO2 emissions by electrifying traditionally fossil-fuel-heavy industrial processes. Using space science and turbomachinery and mechanical and chemical engineering, our revolutionary rotating machinery technology is able to reach heats up to 1700℃ in a completely electric process. Our Roto Dynamic Heater (RDH) and Roto Dynamic Reactor (RDR) are being used to electrify industrial sectors that until now have been considered almost impossible to electrify, including the steel, cement and chemical industries.

Together with governments, industry pioneers and the world’s top experts, we can use this technology to solve one of the biggest challenges humanity has ever faced. Will you join us?
