JOB DESCRIPTION

The Battery Engineer will be responsible for the synthesis and manufacturing of battery components, including active materials, electrolytes, and inactive materials to enable the Cell Engineering Team to develop optimized cell designs. The Battery Engineer is expected to lead the design of experiments, produce and test coin cells, coordinate with Electrode Processing and Cell Assembly Technicians to scale up experiments and collaborate with the Cell Testing Engineer to ensure cells are tested to protocols as experimentally designed. The Battery Engineer is also expected to seek out additional characterization methodologies outside of company capabilities and collaborate with third-party organizations as necessary. You will be expected to communicate frequently and directly with the CTO to review results from experiments, and continually advance the mission of building better batteries. In addition, the battery engineer will have the unique opportunity to learn the entrepreneurial challenges of commercializing and developing technology from the benchtop to the market.

RESPONSIBILITIES

• Sourcing, characterizing, and evaluating active materials, electrolytes, and inactive materials from various suppliers

• Independently building test coin cells for materials characterizations, including mixing, coating, assembling, testing, and post-mortem

• Working with third-party organizations (including contractors, test labs, and universities) to utilize state-of-art characterization techniques

• Designing experiments (DoE) and working closely with Cell Testing Engineers for the proper execution

• Presenting experimental results to Cell Engineering Team to optimize large capacity cell designs

COMPANY FIT

• Self-driven, independent, and capable of solving problems on the fly

• Effective communicator using precise language, and the ability to manage a team

• Ability to work in a diverse, intellectually challenging, and rapid-paced team

QUALIFICATIONS

• M.S. or PhD. in Materials Engineering or Electrochemistry with a focus on energy storage

• 2 – 5 years industrial/academic experience in Li-ion battery research and development

• Knowledge of proper coin cell construction and various electrochemical testing techniques, including familiarity with Arbin/Maccor/Neware/Bio-Logic battery analyzers, EIS/FRA, CV, LVS, 3-electrode cell testing, etc.

• Some experience in Python, data structures, architectures and languages such as SQL would be a plus

• Knowledge of basic materials characterization techniques, including SEM, XRD, BET, laser particle size analyzers, TGA, etc.

• Previous experience with the following will be highly preferred:

◦ Formulations design for Li-ion battery electrodes

◦ Hands-on pouch cell, 18650/26650/21700, prismatic cell assembly experience

◦ Production-scale manufacturing of Li-ion batteries and familiarity with production-level equipment
