Cambium works at the interface of biotech and materials science to build sustainable next-generation defense products. We integrate computational chemistry, product design, and advanced manufacturing methods to solve difficult challenges like hardening UAVs against directed energy, protecting payloads during hypersonic flight, and streamlining the defense product manufacturing supply chain. Our people come from places like SpaceX, Anduril, Scaled Composites, Lockheed Martin Skunkworks, and US DoD Research Labs. We are seeking motivated and exceptional people to join our team.

Cambium is seeking a Polymer Chemist to join our growing team in El Segundo, CA. The successful candidate will be curious with a desire to turn concepts into products, have a strong desire to help grow a company, and will help us build a work culture of open-mindedness that embraces creativity and contrarian thinking. At Cambium we’re willing to do things differently.


Cambium is seeking a Polymer Chemist to join our composite materials engineering team. You’ll work closely with our team to synthesize monomer and formulate new polymer composite resins. This will be a hands-on role and you will be involved in every step of the process – from providing expertise and experience to our computational methods team, designing reactions for production in our on-site reactors, and optimizing processes for manufacturability, cost, and most importantly, performance in extreme aerothermal environments. As Cambium experiences rapid growth, the responsibilities of this role are expected to evolve.
