Caplow|Manzano is hiring a R&D Mechanical Engineer for Sustainable HVAC Design


Bring your skills in fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, CAD, and finite element modeling to our team as we innovate new technology for ecologically sustainable, human health-centered, energy-efficient delivery of thermal conditioning in the built environment.


Caplow|Manzano builds homes for the next 100 years. Central features of our work include photovoltaic solar power and net zero energy design, a unique voidless construction and redesigned plumbing systems for indoor air quality, and elevation for sea-level rise and climate change. Our designs are LEED platinum, WELL compatible, and focused on the unique vulnerabilities and opportunities in the urban tropics.


We seek a motivated and creative early-career engineer with a strong technical background to join our Laboratory Division in an R&D role working on the design of novel thermal systems for HVAC delivery in occupied spaces. Our team of ten is currently working on a handful of ground-up residential projects in Miami, and this role will be split between supporting these builds and pure research and design on specific novel technologies.


Responsibilities

  • Research existing and nextgen technologies.
  • Collaborate on system and component design, and maintain software models of thermal and energy performance;
  • Evaluate and select materials; identify cost barriers to innovation, and develop budgets;
  • Prepare drawings and descriptions to accompany modeled performance and support patent applications;
  • Provide engineering support to several residential construction projects with weekly reporting to superiors;
  • Analyze a broad variety of other systems in a team setting, including solar power, thermal envelope, indoor air quality, and building-integrated agriculture.


Desired Skill Set

  • A passion for ecology, sustainability, and design
  • Background in mechanical engineering or closely allied field
  • Solid understanding of basic thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid dynamics
  • Personally organized, highly accurate, and detail-oriented
  • Know what you know, what you don’t know, and how to find useful answers
  • Entrepreneurship, independence, judgment, and maturity. Ability to go the extra mile
  • Strong communication skills; sense of humor; poise under pressure
  • Construction experience/management a plus 


Required Experience

  • Bachelor's or Master’s Degree in engineering with strong GPA
  • Minimum of 2-3 years work experience (beyond B.S. degree)
  • Knowledge of CAD and thermodynamic or fluid mechanical modeling


Commitment & Compensation Full-time. Salary 55k-95k based on experience. EOE.
