Coatings Engineer at LiquiGlide | Powderkeg

Location: Cambridge, MA

Employment Type: Full time

Team: Engineering

Company Summary

LiquiGlide is a fast-growing company that has changed the rules for how liquids move. Viscous

liquids are sticky, and they don’t flow easily—think toothpaste, lotions, ketchup, heavy oil, or

paint. This creates a lot of waste and inefficiency, and it handcuffs the way we design. But not

anymore. Invented at MIT, LiquiGlide’s liquid surface technology eliminates the friction between

liquids and solids to help liquids flow with ease and enable breakthroughs that used to be

impossible. Following a successful first launch with Colgate in 2021 ( Colgate Elixir ), LiquiGlide

is poised to revolutionize products, packaging, processes, and patient experiences.
