Job Description:

Welcome to the Post Pollution Future with LanzaTechA post-pollution world is inevitable, and people will either be part of it, or the planet will go on without us.

We use nature to heal nature. We capture carbon emissions which are then fed into bioreactors where trillions of carbon-hungry microbes go to work. These tiny dynamos consume the waste gases and produce valuable raw material commodities. Pure enough to be resold, repurposed, and recycled again - from sustainable jet fuel to beverage bottles, to yoga pants.Founded in New Zealand, we are a global women-led company with an international footprint and a diverse employee population.
