Engineering and r&D

Senior Battery Cell Engineer

Job Description:

  • Use newly developed electrode materials to perform the assembly and pilot-scale production of battery cells of different formats and specifications, and iteratively study cell design and material formulation using electroanalytical methods.
  • Develop comprehensive battery test protocols to study key design and performance parameters in different charging/discharging regimes.
  • Design framework to enable the electrode mass production process characterisation for different product (electrode material) iterations.
  • Collaborate very closely with a diverse team of material scientists and battery application engineers to improve cell performance and reliability to expedite the commercialisation of new novel materials.
  • Work and brainstorm with core team to identify and pursue new opportunities for improvement and next generation products. 

Desired Qualifications:

  • Masters/PhD in Chemistry, Materials Science, Chemical Engineering, Physics, or related disciplines.
  • 5 or more years of total R&D experience, out of which atleast 2 years must be in an industrial/corporate R&D setting. (experience/expertise in electrode/cell manufacturing is a significant plus).
  • Familiarity with battery cell testing in conjunction with various power electronics formats and at a pack level.
  • Conscientious, curious, deliberate thought process. Ability to record and communicate research findings in presentations and open discussions.


Senior Materials Scientist

Job Description:

  • Work directly in the development of our proprietary high-performance material for lithium-ion batteries.
  • Collaboratively design and invent, if needed, new synthesis methods  to improve and optimize the performance, safety and production throughput of the cathode/anode material.
  • Produce electrode coatings and assemble simple battery cells in different configurations and use electroanalytical methods to explore underlying factors to battery performance, and present your findings.
  • Monitor the advancements in battery technology and processes and advise the team accordingly.
  • Identify safety hazards and opportunities for improvement. Work cooperatively to address them.

Desired Qualifications:

  • PhD in Chemistry/ Materials Science/ Chemical Engineering with a focus on development, testing and characterization of materials for lithium-ion battery anode and cathode.
  • Minimum 5 years of hands-on laboratory experience of synthesis and testing of materials  for Lithium ion batteries. (Industrial experience and corporate R&D experience is a big plus).
  • In-depth knowledge of Li-ion battery operation and performance including charging, discharging, safety, impedance, aging, cycle life, temperature effects and failure modes.
