For this position, the battery system engineering team is looking for a Cell Engineer who has extensive knowledge in Lithium-ion battery cell chemistry. The Cell Engineer’s major responsibility is to lead and review cell characterisation campaigns and cell test results to ensure the cell performance meets the cell specification. This role requires close collaboration with cell suppliers to guarantee that cell performance aligns with battery pack specifications, encompassing cell selection, performance simulations, and cell-level test results. 

Additionally, the role involves working closely with other System Engineers to create and validate 1D models and optimizing cell performance in conjunction with the battery design. The cell engineer is also assuming technology intelligence and benchmarking in the field of battery cell development.

We are looking for people that share our core values: Customer Obsession, Ownership, Boldness, Excellence and Integrity. If you want to embrace our people-first values and make a real impact, Bold is your place! 

About Bold Valuable Tech: Our Vision

At Bold, we´re a diverse community, from all over the world and from multiple industries and backgrounds. Combining experience from Automotive, Motorsport, Aerospace and Aviation with skills from concept phase through to full product delivery. Our rapid expansion is a testament to our commitment to pushing boundaries and delivering cutting-edge solutions. 

We have two engineering divisions, different in their technologies but similarly focused on delivering compelling products to our customers. 

In our Applied Engineering division, we are an integral part of the design & development process for our high-performance customers including Formula 1, Motorsport and Automotive. From the initial stages of blank sheet designs to the final production, we assume ownership with a relentless commitment to bringing our clients' visions to life. We contribute across all areas of engineering and in multiple different specialisms including composite & materials, bodywork, aero & structural, powertrain, and tooling.    

In our Electrification division, we specialize in R&D of state of the art of battery systems. Taking projects from initial concepts to production: we are designing, developing, testing, and manufacturing the next generation of high-performance batteries to innovative projects for multiple industries. We aim to generate a real impact on the future of electric mobility.
