Battery Modelling Engineer



London, UK
Posted on Monday, May 22, 2023

Our mission is to create technologies that enable people to breathe cleaner air. Through continuous research and development, we are pioneering new ways to utilise battery systems and enhance their health, charging, cycle life and range. Headquartered in London, we work in partnership with global OEMs in the automotive, robotics and consumer electronics industries to deliver advanced battery system performance and experiences. We are developers of the world’s first health adaptive battery charging software.

What you will be doing

You will be a core member of our growing battery modelling team to build class-leading models for battery controller design and BMS development. You will take a leading role in developing advanced features of our high-fidelity battery models to accurately capture the electrical and thermal dynamics as well as critical internal states of batteries. You will be working with our Engineering team to define model requirements and features, and collaborating closely with our Testing team to design and optimize model parameterization and validation processes.

From developing, validating, and deploying high-fidelity models alongside our software and control experts, you will gain deep insight into model-based battery controller and management system design across a spectrum of industry applications. We will provide you with opportunities to develop your skills as a model developer, such as attending seminars and workshops to advance your technical abilities.
