Job Description

  • Your mission at Climeworks is to be the Subject Matter Expert in cost estimation of our EPC projects working as an integral part of the project management team.
  • You will own all Climeworks’ CAPEX cost estimates, organizing those built externally in the past and, moving forward, internally building cost estimates across multiple geographies.
  • You will develop, own and continuously improve our cost estimation models, database and tools to ensure accuracy and standardization of our estimating processes.
  • You are expected to interface cross-functional and provide cost estimation support for project development and product development teams to generate cost estimates of all Classes.
  • You will bring industry knowledge from estimation of industrial facilities to Climeworks and adapt this to develop fit for purpose estimating tools for the direct air capture industry – both for balance of plant equipment and the DAC machine itself.
  • You will work closely with our engineering teams to determine and optimize the major cost drivers in our DAC Plants and improve these in our technology generations. At times, you will need to perform MTO/QTOs yourself from engineering drawings to develop estimates.
  • You will work with procurement to analyze historical data and build our DAC estimating database from As Built projects.
  • You will provide cost estimation support for the procurement team during the competitive bid process.
  • You are well-organized and can build tools that can be sustained for ongoing use by the Climeworks’ project controls organization.
  • You will be expected to present and defend cost estimates to the executive team and be challenged both technically and commercially numbers – requiring an understanding of the engineering and economic cost drivers.
  • You are expected to work closely with project cost controllers and provide mentorship on financial risk and contingency use.
