What we do:
Early Charm creates, owns, and operates businesses that convert science into revenue.

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.

of oxide ceramics. You will also support our custom 3D printer farm which includes a range of 3D printing
technologies for plastics and metals.
Your responsibilities will include working with senior researchers to develop experimental plans, performing
experiments, testing materials, assessing results, iterating experimental designs based on results, preparing
standard operating procedures, and troubleshooting production issues.

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
