ABOUT THE COMPANY:
We make next generation spectrometers up to 6,000 times more sensitive than previously possible, with a 99% reduction in florescence noise. We’re under contract with the U.S. military and leading companies in multiple, multi-billion dollar industries. We’ve established our Montreal R&D office in order to conduct calibrations for critical projects in new industries.
We’re seeking an analytical chemistry, chemical engineering or chemistry for materials science MSc or post doc just leaving a stint at a top research institution or laboratory where he or she had extensive experience running Raman Spectra and using MATLAB to identify, deconvolute, and quantify new analytes.
This person needs to love science but not want to teach it. This person needs to love excitement and be willing to leave a stable environment for chaos and less money than they would otherwise get paid in order to have a chance to change the world and become independently wealthy.
This person will calibrate devices and collect data for implementations of next generation portable precision chembiolabs for new customers in diverse industries, starting with precision agriculture. This person will supervise interns, liaise with the Chief Technology Officer, data scientist, software and AI teams, and report to the CEO.
Work directly with the CEO to design, implement, and deliver overwhelming customer satisfaction by halving current testing costs, eliminating the delay associated with sending samples to labs, and creating previously impossible new in-line capabilities to deliver safer products than ever before.
1. Ensure repeatable detection and quantification of up to 47 analytes simultaneously at the push of a button, resulting in between $125,000 - $675,000 in revenue within year one.
2. Provide data for marketing whitepapers summarizing the customer benefits derived, in dollar savings or new revenue, by implementing the solution.
3. Accompany the CEO on site visits to gather customer requirements and monitor progress.
4. Continuously prioritize, plan, and conduct implementations in new industries. Repeat.
MATLAB for Fourier Transforms and other Signals Processing and Statistical Inference Techniques, Raman Spectroscopy, Organic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Materials Science, Scientific Instrument Calibration Techniques, Statistics Especially Statistical Significance Testing, Lab Management, Staff Management, Device Troubleshooting and Repair, Microsoft Office Suite.
Embrace challenge, change, frugality. Be willing to undertake heroic action on behalf of the customer. Be willing to work overtime hours and travel when necessary. Embrace diversity of thought, belief, orientation, nationality. Continuous learning. Support U.S., Canadian, and allied national security objectives.
Every man, woman, and child on this good earth is a member of our family, equally deserving of the best we have to offer. The promotion of well-being is a noble vocation.
