Science is an early stage company developing technologies for a range of serious unmet medical needs. We are unafraid to take difficult technical risks, secure in the knowledge that with a clear understanding of what we are doing and with support from powerful modern tools, more progress is possible than might be immediately obvious. Regardless of role or team, the two most important factors we look for in a candidate are evidence of exceptional ability and the addition of positive energy to the group. As a small, very early stage team in a largely unstructured environment, the ability to independently orient yourself to the problems that need to be solved and then follow through is essential.

Science is looking for a Facilities Engineer who will work with the technical infrastructure team to ensure the facility is continuously supporting research and development as the work grows and changes. A successful facilities engineer will assess the facility’s resource requirements, design and optimize the facility’s layout and critical operational systems, and oversee the maintenance of infrastructure and equipment.

Role responsibilities:

  • Planning, implementing, and maintaining the infrastructure and equipment of the building and facilities.
  • Ensuring facility reliability and performance.
  • Performing analysis of operational processes, resource allocation, energy use, and recommending and implementing improvements.
  • Determining facility and equipment specification.
  • Designing and overseeing the implementation of facility expansion, layout, various systems, and quality controls.
  • Developing processing plans and optimizing resource allocation.

Key qualifications:

  • 2+ years of experience as a facilities engineer.
  • Knowledge of relevant regulations and building codes.
  • Strong facilities technical background to enable decision making when working with cross-functional teams.
  • Eagerness to be hands on, working with the tools, equipment, and the facilities to solve problems where possible.

Preferred qualifications:

  • Troubleshooting and problem-solving skills.
  • Project management skills.
