What we do:

Early Charm creates, owns, and operates businesses that convert science into revenue.

We are the management team, the operators, and the entrepreneurs. We do not write checks and just pop in for board meetings. We show up to our labs, our production facilities, and our offices every day to do all the heavy lifting in our portfolio companies.

Our scientists and engineers work across our entire portfolio, never just one venture. This brings extraordinary expertise to the earliest stages of product development. The lack of silos fosters creativity and attracts the most collaborative people.

Similarly, our sales & marketing team works across our portfolio enabling us to have the voice of customers heard early and often as we consider product development. Add in our experts in law, intellectual property, accounting, finance, licensing, purchasing and more to get the complete team to build our businesses.

What you will do:

Our advanced materials group, Materic, custom manufactures nanomaterials, performance inks, technical textiles, and 3D printed products. You will work closely with our technical sales team and our customers to render CAD files for production runs on our 3D printer farm. Additionally, working with our production and development team, you will help design and build custom machinery to enable the production of advanced materials. We anticipate that CAD support will grow from about 20% of your time to 60% of your time over a two-year period.

From time to time you will also work with our engineered products group on devices being developed in the areas of machine vision. These include devices using sonar, optical coherence tomography, photoacoustics and more.

What you need to be successful:

If you are both unabashedly creative and cooperatively kinetic then you’ll fit right into the culture at Early Charm.

Demonstratable experience with Fusion or Solidworks and the ability to design to tight tolerances is a must. Also, a love of building mechanical devices with your own hands is required. We appreciate people who have arrived at those skills from non-traditional and traditional paths, so there are no degree requirements.

What we will do for you:

Career development is our top priority for you. Our commitment is to help you while you are helping us. You’ll meet twice a year with our CEO to plan a career development path that meets your long term needs and interests.

Where you will work:

We are at the center of the entrepreneurial renaissance of Baltimore giving you the opportunity to interact with some of the nation’s most exciting technology companies. Located at 1100 Wicomico Street, our labs, production space and offices are intermingled with firms doing engineering design, software development, specialty textiles, robotics, and so much more. There is even a brewery.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is Our Business:

Creativity is the soul of Early Charm. We expand creativity by actively seeking out and embracing diversity in all its forms. Diversity of thought, of experience, of culture, of race, of expression and ultimately of the individual is, therefore, our soul.

Action and cooperation drive our success at Early Charm. We foster action through equity. Equity means we treat everyone with respect, empower everyone to make decisions, help everyone to advance their career and compensate everyone fairly. We encourage cooperation by being inclusive. Inclusive means celebrating each other’s differences, listening to each other’s views, and empowering each other to be individuals through our own actions. Equity and inclusion, therefore, is our success.
