Enovix is seeking an R&D Cell Integration Engineer to design, build, and characterize next-gen high energy density batteries. The candidate will be responsible for creating cell designs, defining and qualifying new processes, overseeing builds, understanding test and safety performance, analyzing cycle time and yields, and transferring cell designs to production.
- Develop a cell design that achieves desired product goals by understanding the design space and systematically working through design trade-offs.
- Assist process engineers in the research and development of new processes that enables the production of next generation cell designs.
- Decide and down-select individual cell components that enable final product performance and reliability requirements to be achieved.
- Design and run (well-designed) experiments based on DOE methodologies.
- Analyze and summarize performance data and use various electrochemical and materials analysis techniques to determine degradation mechanisms.
- Perform FMEA and root cause analysis as needed to achieve design and product goals.
- Create and execute on project plans and drive projects to completion on schedule.
Skills and Qualifications
- Master’s Degree in materials science, chemical engineering, physics, chemistry or related discipline is required, and a PhD is preferred.
- Demonstrated capability to effectively analyze data and extract/summarize meaningful information is required.
- Knowledge of battery chemistry and physics or demonstrated ability to learn quickly is required.
- Familiarity with DOE, FMEA and 8D methodologies is required.
- Experience in design, development, and integration of lithium-ion batteries is highly desired.
- Proven track-record of solving problems in the scale-up of R&D processes to high-volume manufacturing is desired.
Enovix is building a next-generation lithium-ion battery to increase energy density and improve safety. Our patented 3D cell architecture enables a high-capacity silicon anode to increase energy density by 30% to 80%, depending on cell size. And our patented 3D cell architecture includes features that reduce the danger of explosion and fire from thermal runaway. We’re backed by strategic relationships with Intel, Qualcomm, and Cypress and over $150 million in venture, strategic, and private funding. We’ve been awarded over 50 patents and have over 50 more pending that will create sustainable enterprise value and provide a competitive barrier for years to come.
