Engineering Fellowship at re:char / Adafruit Jobs Board

Pt 101629

Engineering Fellowship at re:char / Adafruit Jobs Board.

re:char seeks an entrepreneurial engineer ready to change the world.

You’ll be working with our 5-person team, operating out of a shipping container workshop of our own (evolving) design.

A willingness to work on a start-up schedule and ability to live, full-time, in Kenya is essential.

Requirements:
-BS in a technical field or beyond-equivalent work experience.
-A willingness and desire to spend extended periods of time working in developing countries
-Experience with the following techniques: welding, 3d design, fabrication, improvisation
-Interest in and familiarity with low-cost design principles for bottom of the pyramid customers

Ideal candidates will also possess the following:
-Experience/interest in agricultural technologies
-Familiarity with biochar/charcoal production technologies
-Familiarity with combustion/fuel chemistry

Some of the more interesting tools you’ll have 24/7 access to include:
-4’x4’ plasmacam cnc, with parts to build several DIY cnc setups ordered
-multiple welding processes (tig, oxy, arc, spot)
-extensive metalworking and woodworking equipment

This fellowship will last for 6-12 months; a strong performer may then be offered a long-term, equity position
This position is paid, with a small stipend + expenses
You should only apply if you care more about making awesome stuff than rolling in piles of money

To apply, email me ( luke@re-char.com ) the following:

1. Your resume
2. An explanation of why you want this job
3. 1 picture each and a 1-sentence description of the 3 things you’ve built of which you are most proud
4. A description of one thing you’d want to build in the shipping container shop and sell to customers in developing countries
