14141 W. Highway 290, Building #400 Austin, TX, USA 78737
+1 (512) 387-2553
Cell Engineer
Rolled-Ribbon Battery Company is a privately-held company that has developed and patented Rolled-Ribbon® technology – game-changing technology that produces the best high-power high-capacity Li-ion cells and batteries. The company is preparing for the commercialization of its technology, including the development of its first commercial products and the construction of a manufacturing facility in Austin, TX. Currently, the company is growing its core team to bring Rolled-Ribbon® products and technology to market. This position represents an opportunity to be a significant part of creating the next “big thing” in Li-ion battery systems. The company provides competitive compensation and excellent benefits.
The Cell Engineer will be responsible for conducting projects and tasks under the supervision of the Manager of Cell Engineering and in collaboration with mechanical, electrical, and software engineers. As the company is a young startup, the candidate should be interested in all electrochemical, chemical, materials, mechanical, environmental, and safety aspects of Li-ion cells and batteries. Previous relevant industrial (preferred) and/or academic experience is desired; however, a candidate possessing high-level critical thinking and analytical skills, strong quality and work ethics, disciplined and teachable attitudes, and an internal drive for problem solving and achieving results, while possibly lacking specific battery experience, will be successful for this position. Initially, development projects and pilot line production tasks will center on the designs and builds of the initial product offerings as the company seeks “design wins” from prospective customers. This is a key position with planned progression to leading projects, and possibly supervising teams as the company grows. Accordingly, the candidate should be an experienced hands-on engineer/scientist with good teamwork and communication skills. The candidate should be forward-thinking, proactive and attentive to detail.
BS, MS or PhD in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Materials Science with knowledge of/experience in the design, build, and testing of electrochemical systems, and an interest in Li-ion cell and battery production
Experience in three or more of the following areas:
o Planning and executing technical experiments and investigations, including documenting (a plus)
o Manipulating, interpreting, and reporting test data
o Selecting, procuring, and using instruments, equipment, tools, and materials
o Working in a laboratory (including using a glovebox) and special environments (e.g., dry room)
o Designing and building electrochemical cells (Li-ion, a plus)
o Testing and characterizing – performance and safety – Li-ion cells (a plus)
Knowledge of Li-ion cell production processes, cell testing methods, and applications
Knowledge and exercise of relevant environmental, health and safety practices
Proficiency with computer software; Microsoft Office® (Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint – Visio a plus)
Good communication skills: oral, written, and interpersonal
