Sora Fuel

Sora Fuel aims to decarbonize aviation by converting air into affordable, carbon-neutral jet fuel at scale with no feedstock constraints or adverse impacts on agriculture. Our novel electrolysis technology directly converts captured carbon into syngas without regenerating gaseous CO2, reducing the energy required to utilize DAC-sourced CO2 by up to 90%. This provides an economical pathway to carbon-neutral flight, potentially addressing >2% of challenging-to-abate global emissions.

The company was founded in early 2024 and has already closed funding from renowned toughtech investor Engine Ventures. We are actively recruiting for a range of technical roles to improve and scale our core electrochemical process. We seek to build a diverse, collaborative team that shares our enthusiasm and drive to meaningfully address climate change. 


The ideal candidate is a scientist or engineer with significant experience designing and improving electrochemical processes and a desire to be a foundational member of a rapidly growing team. Particular experience focused on any individual cell components (electrocatalyst, electrode, membrane) or optimization of zero-gap, membrane electrode assemblies is a significant plus.


  • Design, perform, and analyze electrochemical experiments to improve Sora Fuel’s core electrolyzer technology

  • Accurately and completely record results and present regularly with the team 

  • Work collaboratively with scientists and engineers from diverse backgrounds

  • Contribute to Sora Fuel’s long-term technology development strategy


  • A doctoral degree in chemistry, chemical engineering, or a related field with a specific research focus on the design, optimization, and/or characterization of electrochemical systems OR a related bachelor’s/master’s degree and 3+ additional years of electrochemistry experience (electrolyzers, fuel cells, redox flow batteries)

  • Significant practical experience conducting and analyzing electrochemical reactions

  • Broad familiarity with standard electrochemical characterization techniques 

  • Ability to clearly and concisely communicate scientific findings

  • Alignment with our core values of transparency, diversity, collaboration, valuing people and development, and work ethic

  • Specific experience in CO2 electrolysis, zero-gap membrane-electrode assemblies, or membrane synthesis a significant plus 


  • Competitive salary

  • 401k + Match
