This is a full on research development company inventing materials, making prototype Li-ion anodes, testing Li-ion batteries they make and producing material for sale in the industry.
Working there is fun and challenging and days, weeks fly by.
Intense training is given with salary incentives monthly to encourage fast learning and bonuses for ideas and for bringing in good people to work there. I highly recommend them as a caring and challenging employer.
typical day: don safety equipment and get stuck in mixing anodes slurry, coating slurries, calendering and punching anodes, drying anodes. Moving into dry room fabricating, coin cells, bi cells, stack cells or 18650 cells. Testing them on banks of Arbin or Toyo rigs and opening them to check expansion and faliure rates in the glove boxes. Move to office to graph and database the results feeding from the Arbin room constantly. Train at the lunch and learn meetings and stay late to finish long runs and do it all again the next day/ week.
best part of job: challenges to get things working, I was the bottom rung in this machine and the research assistants had the least exciting jobs, yet I looked forward to work every Monday and worked late on a Friday evening regularly.
hardest part of job...resisting the shed loads of cake brought in.
