ElectroChemist/ Battery Engineer


To support lab-based activities on battery testing and analysis. Design and execution of electrochemical tests to support the development and commercialization of battery material products that meet Li-ion customer specifications.

  • Conducts electrode fabrication, cell assembly, and electrochemical analysis to support the development of Si-based anode materials.
  • Understands product design targets and performance requirements. Develops and carries out standard operation procedures for electrochemical quality control (QC) tests.
  • Conducts measurement system analysis (MSA) to understand the implications of measurement errors and to ensure the integrity of electrochemical tests.
  • Provides technical support for customers in battery testing.
  • Designs and performs advanced electrochemical analyses to assist in battery failure mode analysis.
  • Identify new binders, electrolytes, and additives. Designs new generations of electrode and electrolyte formulations to improve battery performance.
  • Facilitates knowledge transfer to design and manufacturing teams and provide support to enable or accelerate product development and scale up
  • Contributes to the technology direction of Nexeon through participating in technology reviews and peer review of project activities.
  • Presents key technical analyses of material performance, supports project and technical roadmap requirements
  • Collaborates with the IP department to assist with drafting and evaluation of internal patent claims/filings.
  • Provides written and oral reports at all levels within the company including summaries of large bodies of work.
  • Ensures a high level of safety awareness, being an active voice for continuous improvement and supporting all safety driven improvement activities
