Join the Chemetry Team

Becky King, Operations Engineer & Group Lead
Team member since October 2009

I joined Chemetry as a summer intern for electrochemistry research in my final year of graduate school. The internship was a wonderful experience allowing me to quickly contribute to the research efforts in a great team environment. I was excited to return to work full time as a research engineer in the electrochemistry group where I gained valuable experience scaling our electrochemical cells to the pilot plant. As we developed new technologies, I broadened my experience with the catalysis research group with the opportunity to scale up this process. I led commissioning and learned the entire pilot plant from the ground up. This prepared me for the role of pilot operations engineer, where I currently manage experimentation and analytics conducted at the plant.

The challenge of moving from the lab scale to pilot scale with these technologies allowed me to vastly broaden my problem solving, leadership and communication skill sets. The transitions were both challenging and fun as I worked with a passionate cross-functional team of engineers, scientists, and operators to design and implement the necessary experiments to push the technology forward. It is motivating and rewarding to work on challenging projects with good people. It also doesn’t hurt that I get to live and work by the beach and train for triathlons along the ocean on my lunch break!


Diego Martinez, Senior Process Engineer
Team member since January 2010

When I joined Chemetry, I had just arrived to the United States with my broken English and decided an operator position in a chemical pilot plant seemed like a good place to start my career in the US. At the time, we were finishing the construction of the pilot plant for our first electrochemistry technology and I had the opportunity to commission the plant, working side by side with a very talented team of engineers and scientists.

Soon, I was able to move to a junior engineer position where I worked designing and building the next generation pilot plant. Six years later, as a Senior Process Engineer, I am still inspired to come to work every day,  with the goal of reducing the energy consumption and CO2 emissions for one of the most energy intensive industrial chemical process. It’s also inspiring to be able to get some waves with coworkers before work in one of the best beach breaks in California.


We strive to redefine how chemicals are made. Just because things have been done a specific way for over 100 years does not mean we should follow the same path. We are focused on lowering the energy requirement and CO2 footprint of the chemical industry while making these processes safer. This is only possible with a dedicated and innovative group of forward thinkers who are willing to challenge conventions. We are looking for individuals with these values to join our team.
