We are seeking an extremely motivated Battery Engineer to join our mission to revolutionize battery chemistry development and commercialization with cutting-edge AI. This is a critically important role at the core of Chemix's operations. You will be the direct link between the materials discovered by our autonomous AI-driven R&D process and our next-generation EV battery products.

Our AI-driven process automates much of the tedium of battery R&D, including data processing and analysis, enabling our battery team to focus on higher-value tasks such as converting our customer's battery concept and requirement into practical and scalable cell designs. If you're a battery scientist fed up with the standard time-consuming approaches to battery development, and the glacial pace of battery improvement, Chemix could be a great fit.

Chemxi is a fast-moving startup, and we expect you to quickly and creatively solve all kinds of technical problems, including those beyond your core expertise. An ideal candidate is able to learn quickly, is eager to stretch their battery knowledge, takes pride in the quality of their work, and wants to make a real impact in energy storage technologies for electric transportation.

Responsibilities:

Cell testing: design cycling test protocols and conduct battery safety tests

Compile and present the specifications and test results of cells to customers and industry partners.

R&D process optimization: holistic analysis of R&D workflow, identification of efficiency and quality bottlenecks, and implementation of solutions

Requirements

BS in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Materials Science, or similar fields.

2+ years of battery industry experience
