With whom you will CELLebrate

The mission has started. We proudly announce that in our Battery Valley we are starting our own battery cell production and the ramp up of our worldwide headquarters for global cell manufacturing. The CTO organization takes care of the battery cell development. Our responsibility includes research, predevelopment of materials and components, series development, prototyping, testing and analysis of battery cells. 


How you will CELLebrate

  • Contribute to our efforts of bringing our lithium-ion battery cell into mass production
  • Bring in your anode know-how to improve lithium-ion battery performance (energy density, power, lifetime, safety and cost)
  • Become a key member of an interdisciplinary team to help determine the ideal anode chemistry and cell designs
  • Evaluate and select anode active materials and inactive materials for our future products based on customer requirements
  • Generate specifications for anode active materials (especially, graphite and/or silicon-based materials) and other electrode components (including binders, conductive additives, current collector foils)
  • Lead technical discussions with material suppliers
  • Support the team in the qualification of materials and the respective suppliers, in designing and developing electrochemical/chemical tests to understand material degradation and its impact on cell performance and aging and in analyzing electrochemical data and material data to elucidate fundamental mechanisms leading to degradation or improvement, and identify optimization pathways
  • Identify root causes for failure modes and derive counter measures

What you need for our CELLebration

  • Completed University degree in chemistry, chemical engineering, material science, or equivalent major
  • Familiar with electrochemistry, battery active materials and their degradation mechanisms 
  • Familiar with electrochemical testing 
  • Proficient with data analysis
  • Familiar with chemical analysis techniques for battery materials
  • Ability to learn new concepts and methods from literature, propose design of experiments, and execute independently
  • Business fluent English language skills

What else can you bring

  • In-depth knowledge in the field of  battery materials and battery cells, especially regarding anode active materials, binders, conductive additives and their interactions within the battery cell

What to look forward to

  • Flexible working hours from 28 to 40h per week
  • Possibility of a 4-day-week (up to 35h per week)
  • 30 days paid + 10 days unpaid leave
  • Mobile work options
  • Relocation support
  • More benefits to come

We believe that the best results are created in a diverse and inclusive environment. 
Therefore, all qualified applications will be considered for employment regardless of age, race, religion, gender (identity), sexual orientation, national origin or disability.
