Battery Cell Specialist

Main Task

The battery cells and their configuration not only determines the design of the accupack and by extension the back of the car but also its top speed, acceleration as well as its endurance. It goes without saying that the decisions here carry great impact on characteristics of the final car. In this position you will decide what cells to use, in what configuration and the design of the segments in which they are stored. This includes the sensor- and slave-boards that collects data from the cells to the BMS.

Your Profile

The sensor- and slave boards are governed by a lot of rules, requiring you to be structured, meticulous and organised to make sure these are followed. For working with the hardware you should have an interest in embedded electronics. Both design, verification, and testing. Interest in embedded programming. Your design choices will in large terms decide the design and packaging in the car, you are therefore a good communicator with your intentions, ideas and decisions to the rest of the team. A background and interests in batteries are not required but highly meriting.
