The team constructively and destructively investigate commercially available cells in a proactive manner rather than reactive, in order to obtain full failure analysis.

About the role

This role houses the ownership for the CCD and will be the junction point for delivering a solution to meet Dyson’s aspirations of fully understanding the commercial cell scene.

A successful candidate will have the communication skills to translate technical feedback whilst empowering their own team to fully measure and analyse commercial cells. Reporting initially to the Senior Engineering Manager, subsequently to the Energy Storage Director, the role will encompass technical analysis and technical communications.

Main Duties/Responsibilities:

  • Contribute to the development characterization activities for commercial cell diagnostics ensuring the cells and their components are tested for form, composition and function.

  • Support developing both physical capability through equipment competence and theoretical understanding to meet all material performance, safety characteristics and manufacturability metrics for commercial cells.

  • You will be part of the subject matter expert team for quantitative and qualitative characterisation activity.

  • Contribute to that material structure and composition requirements are met in conjunction with the electrochemistry and cell build commercial claims.  You will help gather information for feedback on improvements.
