About the company

Foundation Alloy is building the most advanced metal parts supplier in the world. Our mission is to enable innovation in the physical world, and unlock safer, greener and more exciting generations of products across critical industries like space, aerospace, automotive, energy and defense. Leveraging materials technology from MIT and UC Irvine, alongside advanced manufacturing and automation, we can make parts that blow through the performance plateaus of legacy materials and processes while reducing lead times by 90%, energy usage by 50%, and costs. 


We don’t look for profiles that “fit” with our culture. We look for people that add to who we are - people with the initiative, positive approach to problem solving, and passion for something (anything!) that will make them both high impact and exciting to work alongside from day one. We know that these people come from all walks of life, with all backgrounds and levels of experience. If you’re excited about the work we can do together, please reach out. We enthusiastically welcome team members of all races, colors, religions, ages, sexes, sexual orientations, gender identities, national origins, different abilities, genetics, veteran statuses, and former incarceration statuses.

Compensation and Benefits

The success of this company will be grounded in the long-term productivity of our team. To provide everyone with the physical, mental and financial safety to operate at their long-term best, we provide the following:

  • Meaningful, challenging, impactful work, and opportunities to grow within the company at all levels

  • Competitive salary, guaranteed to rise with inflation at a minimum each year

  • Equity - People at every level will have an impact, and should benefit from their work

  • Unlimited paid vacation, with a very strong expectation that employees take a minimum of 15 days off per year, and a full week off at least once per year

  • Flexible working style. Many jobs will require people to be present in person or in office most of the time, but in general we care about what’s getting done, not when or where you’re doing it

  • Top tier health and dental insurance with limited employee contributions 

  • A voice in future benefits. This is the beginning, and we will work together to keep adding new, better ways to provide for everyone in the company

We are looking for excited candidates across the board:

  • Software engineering, product development and management to begin building our internal and external facing products to drive operational excellence

  • Automation engineering (software and hardware) to begin building out the automation infrastructure that will drive efficiency in our facilities

  • EHS and quality control to make sure our facilities, and the parts we produce, meet the highest standards

  • People operations, supply chain, business operations, finance, strategy and marketing to build the supporting infrastructure we need to successfully and sustainably “grow to market”

  • Program management, business development and sales to connect and allow us to build alongside our ecosystem and commercial, government and defense partners

  • Whatever else we’re missing! We’re all ears on the skills, experience and talent people want to bring to the table


  • Demonstrated history of taking initiative and ownership to drive value, “embracing the red” and approaching problems with a positive attitude, and ability to communicate clearly and respectfully with all coworkers
