Description

You want to be at the forefront of the new wave of Green design that is sweeping global manufacturing. You care about human health and the environment, and you wish to see Greener materials used where traditional, fossil-fuel based products have dominated. You want to design Greener recreational products than those that currently exist. At Mt. Baker Bio, one of Washington State’s Top 50 Greenest companies, our team of engineers and scientists are depending on your broad engineering expertise. Our products are exclusively aimed at creating disruptive solutions for urgent environmental problems. We are also heavily involved in waste and resource management policy.

As an engineer intern at Mt. Baker Bio, you will be an integral team member of an industry-disruptive materials and waste management startup. We are known for being the world’s only Green life science plastics manufacturing and distribution company, but we are looking to branch out into other markets, such as water sports and high-tech composites using upcycled plastics. It is in this context that we desire your expertise.

European governments are progressively placing more and more restrictions and regulations on manufacturers to ensure that environmentally sound methods are being used. It is only a matter of time until these regulations become a reality in America, and California is already making major strides in this direction. Engineering firms are already seeking engineers with knowledge of these regulations and the associated Green design savvy. There is no other opportunity as applicable to this field of work than at Mt. Baker Bio.

As several of our new products are about to go live on the crowd-funding website Kickstarter, this would initially be an unpaid internship, with pay contingent on the success of our Kickstarter campaigns after 3 months. If we feel you are a good fit in our team, you will stick with us and help build our 4 startup companies.

Responsibilities

We are a small team, so you will play a large role in upcoming developments, and will have to “wear many hats.” You will help design a high performance ocean kayak out of advanced composite materials. In addition, you will apply your expertise towards the design of new products using upcycled plastic feedstocks. It is highly desired that you are experienced with hydrodynamics, aerodynamics, materials, 3D printing, CAD, and CNC. In addition, a scientific understanding of contemporary environmental crises is an absolute must. Demonstrated experience, love of nature and professional initiative are more important than your academic credentials.
