Location: Greater Boston

Salary:  Open

Job Description:

Our client has chosen to solve the most significant materials science problems to enable solid state batteries which can be manufactured in a much simpler way.  By eliminating liquids, these new batteries will enable substantial improvements in energy density, cost, and safety, and make possible the use of chemistries that have been considered “the holy grail” for batteries.  A truly solid state battery is now possible. Significant improvements in battery safety, performance and cost are achievable with ionic conductivities that exceed those of traditional liquid systems over a wide range of temperatures.   

Roles and Responsibilities:

The manufacturing engineer will be responsible for establishing robust processes. Proven experience in process development, equipment specification and the establishment and continuous improvement of production lines.  In this role, the manufacturing engineer will be responsible for creating standard operating procedures (SOPs), training technicians, establishing QC checkpoints and analyzing quality data. This position reports to the VP of Operations and will work closely with a polymer development team.     

Qualifications:   

  • B.S. or M.S. degree in mechanical, chemical, materials science, manufacturing or electrical engineering
  • A minimum of 3 years of manufacturing experience with Lithium ion batteries on advanced lithium ion battery materials and solid electrolytes
