- When I first started at LanzaTech, we had two fermenters which we cared for like children! We did everything we could to get our microbes producing ethanol in our labs! Today we have a state of the art fermentation facility with onsite analytics. As one of the first employees, I have watched LanzaTech grow since 2006 and although we have evolved, much like our microbe has, it is still as challenging and fun to come into work each day to my fermenters! Loan, Senior Scientist
- Working at LanzaTech has enabled me to continue with working on truly ground-breaking research with real world applications. The fact that the work that goes on in the laboratory could have a significant impact on our energy future is something that keeps the excitement levels high throughout the team. It is great to be part of a group of like minded individuals, who are focussed, but equally enjoy relaxing after work together, be in playing football as a team, going scuba diving or just having a few drinks after work. Michael, Team Leader Synthetic Biology
- As a process engineer I started out at LanzaTech's Pilot Plant in Auckland where I gained valuable experience and a core understanding of our fermentation process. I progressed from my pilot plant support role into a research and development position, first as an R&D engineer then as a research team leader. More recently I have moved from New Zealand to Chicago and am now involved in project management of research projects, where the focus is mostly on the development of separation technologies. I still throw in a bit of engineering site support when needed, including spending time at our Freedom Pines facility in Georgia, USA. LanzaTech has given me unforgettable experiences for both my career and my personal growth (it’s not every day you jump into Lake Michigan in the middle of winter or ride in a monster truck). I have been exposed to a wide range of opportunities that have enabled me to expand my technical knowledge and professional expertise. I am lucky to work with a great group of colleagues, who have been gathered from countries and cultures all around the world. They are not only inspiring and educational to work with but are also great companions to enjoy a beer with at the end of the day. Alice, Senior Process Engineer
