The RoleOpportunity Overview
Reporting to the Engineering Manager, you will join a team including four other Manufacturing Design Engineers and be responsible for the design and development of natural gas equipment such as process skids, to support industry contract manufacturing as well as standard products. To a lesser extent, you may also be involved in the design, development and implementation of natural gas fueling stations.
For each of your assigned project and/or products, you will have full cycle involvement, including applying mechanical, electrical and process engineering knowledge from project concept to proposal to final completion and implementation. While you will support Clean Energy LNG stations and projects, you will more often work with industry clients on commercial plants and commercial plant equipment.
You will typically balance a variety of projects and work on various assigned project teams, depending on the complexity and scope of each assignment. You will take a collaborative approach to your role, working with Development, Project Management, Shop personnel, engineers and others, and focus heavily on design. A good deal of your work will be completed independently but you'll also have the full support of the team. You will bridge the gap between the creation of documentation necessary to production and manufacturing.
Specifically, you will:
- Create Engineering designs in compliance with engineering principles, company standards, customer contract requirements and related specifications.
- Develop engineering documentation, 3D CAD models, calculations, manufacturing procedures, and customer technical literature for effective communication and robust implementation of process systems manufactured by Clean Energy Cryogenics.
- Utilize design for manufacturing principles and creative problem-solving in new product development.
- Implement solutions based on industry Codes and Standards (ASME BPVC) and sound engineering practice
- Provide support to Sales and Marketing teams through pre-project work.
- Formulate plans, designs, cost estimates, and specifications for the construction or modernization of fueling stations, along with its projected maintenance.
- Perform engineering and quality analysis of designs; develop and execute product testing protocols
- Develop and maintain a schedule and budget for Engineering projects and control expenditures within the limitations of that budget.
- Work closely with manufacturing for design input, customer requirement tracking, product quality and ensuring compliance with engineering
- Coordinate the completion of each project including definition, development, internal or external approvals, and validation or commissioning.
- Interface with customers, general contractors, suppliers and external technical resources to ensure scope is defined, and technical requirements are being delivered.
- Contribute ideas, leadership, support, and development in project teams and to peers.
- Prepare status and progress project reports for the Manager of Engineering and company management.
- Advise management regarding engineering problems and potential ways to solve them.
- Conduct a quality check of all documents and reports, verifying accuracy of data, information, and calculations.
- Assist in process implementation as well as preparing and maintaining standards, specifications, and other departmental documentation.
More Good ReasonsProfessional development
This position can be a challenging and rewarding one for years to come; at the same time, if you are interested in career advancement, we anticipate opportunities for proven performers as we grow.
Green standard for sustainability
You probably already knew that natural gas burns much more cleanly than gasoline and diesel, producing significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions. But did you also know that natural gas is increasingly renewable, using biomethane reclaimed from landfill via waste-to-energy solutions? Clean Energy is helping companies and public organizations meet aggressive environmental goals.
Great place to live and work
Evanston, Wyoming is the county seat of Uinta County and home to some 12,000 residents who enjoy the lifestyle you can only find in a small-town community. We'll be honest, though: Southwest Wyoming isn't for everyone. At more than 6700 feet above sea level, it's high, dry desert. Winters last from October to late April/early May and, while we do get snow, it's not the deep snowdrifts you might be picturing.
Of course, top rated skiing is a short drive away in Utah, such as Park City and Deer Valley. In fact, Wyoming is known for diverse outdoor recreation amenities. The people are friendly and the cost of living is well below the national average . . . Wyoming has no state income tax, for example.

The Clean Energy Cryogenics shop in Evanston, Wyoming is 63,000 square feet on 11 acres of land. A machine shop area produces items such as flanges for pressure vessel lids. A series of welding stations fabricate pump skids for LNG vehicle fueling, vacuum jacketed piping, and other fabricated equipment. We offer process piping, cryogenic storage, transfer and handling systems, pressure vessel design and manufacturing and more.
During construction, Clean Energy Cryogenics is on site with a small fleet of Dodge trucks, fabrication trailers, and welding rigs. By performing our own mechanical work, we can both minimize installation time and assure the highest quality workmanship.
In addition to a competitive salary and discretionary annual bonus potential, we offer a comprehensive benefits package that includes medical, dental and other insurances, a 401(k) plan with discretionary company match, paid time off and more.

Keys to SuccessWe're looking for a Manufacturing Design Engineer, who not only enjoys engineering but is passionate about it...someone who is not afraid to take risks, but who also has the ability, background and analytical reasoning skills to know why the risk is worthwhile. At the same time, you'll be a learner who's not married to only to what you've done and tried in the past but is invested in growing, evolving and continuing to learn now and into the future.
To be an exceptional Manufacturing Design Engineer, you will be highly engaged in your projects and enjoy the variety. Additionally, you will:
- Own your assignments, working autonomously but also leveraging the support of the team where needed.
- Be proactive. You will go out and get what you need, not wait for others to come to you.
- Overcome challenges through thoughtfulness and tenacity. You'll keep at it until you find a solution.
- Have a strong eye for details and remain goal oriented and results focused in all that you do.
- Be a reliable team player, working collaboratively and earning the trust and respect of those with whom you work.
