Can An Engineer Change The World?

A General died, and was greeted by St. Peter at the gateway to Heaven. In conversing with St. Peter, the General asked, “Who was the greatest warrior of all time?” St. Peter walked the General along an alley filled with famous warriors – they passed by Napoleon, Alexander the Great, Spartacus and many others.

Finally, the general is introduced to Anthony Morse, who, according to St. Peter was the greatest warrior of all time. The General, somewhat embarrassed, said that he had never heard of the great Anthony Morse. “What battles did he win?” To this, St. Peter responded that although he was the greatest warrior, when he lived, there were no great wars or great battles to be won.

Perhaps you are a great design engineer, a team leader, and are well versed in the field of design and development of internal combustion engines; perhaps, you might even have the drive and desire to change the world. But does your company present you with a “Great War” to fight? Or are you spending time making 1% improvements in one of a sliver of the hundreds of engine sub-assemblies?

Our company – LiquidPiston, Inc. – is a venture capital backed startup company whose revolutionary new rotary diesel combustion engine has the potential to eliminate our country’s dependency on foreign oil as well as dramatically lower our carbon footprint for environmental sustainability.

We will give you a “Great War” and a chance to leave your mark in history.

From its roots at MIT, LiquidPiston, Inc., located in Bloomfield, CT has developed a prototype engine based on a revolutionary thermodynamic cycle that offers unprecedented fuel efficiency, inherently quiet operation, and best in class power-to-weight ratio. Our multi-disciplinary engineering and scientific team has great experience in designing internal combustion engines. We use Solidworks to design and FEA parts; the materials and manufacturing methods are carefully selected; we understand thermodynamics of diesel engines and how they work and how to optimize the design and performance. We are enjoying engineering and technical challenges – we are an experienced team, but we maintain an open mind to new ideas and “can do” attitude.

If you would like to apply for one of our open positions, please submit a resume and cover letter and let us know how you can make a difference at LiquidPiston, please email your application to hr@liquidpiston.com.
