Project engineer in the field of biomass and energy (m/f/d)

Work location:

DACH region with company headquarters in Allgäu and home office

Stopping climate change, securing energy supplies and making soils fertile? The revolutionary autarkize pyrolysis technology makes all this possible.
Our technology enables biogenic residues to be converted into a high-quality pyrolysis gas. This in turn can be used to generate climate-neutral electricity and heat.
The second product is biochar, a valuable soil improver for agriculture and forestry. At the same time, biochar also has one of the world's greatest potentials for removing billions of tons of CO2 from the atmosphere and thus reversing climate change.
With our technology, companies and municipalities can close (their own) material cycles, become energy self-sufficient, make the soil more resilient and actively contribute to climate protection.

Our task as a start-up in the beautiful Allgäu region is now to bring this pyrolysis technology into series production and to continuously develop it further. For this purpose, we are looking for a project engineer in the field of biomass, energy and plant engineering (m/f/d) with immediate effect.

Your tasks:

  • Planning and implementation of customer-specific projects, in particular:
  • Execution of feasibility studies and technical designs incl. profitability analysis  
  • Identification of local and regional biomass material flows and energy needs.
  • Development of supply concepts:
    - Input Biomass: logistics, processing, extraction
    - Output Energy: use & storage of gas/heat/electricity
    - Output biochar : logistics and, if necessary, further processing to Terra Preta with existing partners
  • Cooperation with public authorities (e.g. approvals such as BiMSchG, TA-Luft, Ex-protection)  
  • Coordination of trades (e.g. construction of gas pipelines, materials handling, storage rents, silos)
  • Collaboration with the internal development team (e.g. customer-specific operating instructions and requirements, CE conformity)
  • Coordination of commissioning
  • Handover to operator and Service-Team


  • Completed training or studies in the field of energy technology, supply engineering,industrial engineering or a comparable qualification
  • Independent and solution-oriented way of working
  • Strong teamwork and communication skills
  • Hands-On Mentality

What we offer:

  • A motivated, competent team
  • Good and performance-related compensation
  • Flexible working hours
  • An exciting, challenging and varied job
