Staff Modeling Engineer

Form Energy Somerville MA or Berkeley CA, MA Full Time
Apply on company site
Form Energy is a team of passionate people tackling the challenge of climate change through transformationally low cost energy storage.  Our team members are active learners who enjoy working on tough technology problems in massive markets and embody our values of humanity, excellence and creativity. The company is backed by a diverse set of committed investors and we have raised over $360M to date.
Role Description
We are looking for a Staff Modeling Engineer to join our full-scale battery module team to inform the design direction and validation of our product. The Staff Modeling Engineer will be responsible for creating performance and degradation models for Form Energy’s electrochemical energy-storing battery module. This engineer is expected to collaborate with other modeling specialists across the company, including mechanistic, FEA, cell, and systems modelers. In particular, this role will serve as a key interface between subscale cell and system performance modeling and directly inform product design directions. The ideal candidate will have strong interdisciplinary communication skills to participate in system design trade studies across teams and component design owners.

What you'll do:

    • Create a Python-based battery module performance model, which accounts for specific materials selection and component geometries, among other key design or operational variables
    • Collaborate with cell degradation modelers to create a battery module degradation model, accounting for new degradation modes arising from the device design embodiment
    • Define modeling interfaces (both within software and organizationally) among cell, electrode, and non-electrochemical component models to inform battery module performance
    • Work with the systems performance modeling function to execute design trade studies among component, battery module, and system design
    • Specify experiments, in collaboration with battery engineers, to fill data gaps that inform and validate battery module modeling efforts; collaborate with engineers across teams to interpret electrochemical test data

What you'll bring:

    • BS in Materials Science, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or similar
    • 5+ years experience modeling electrochemical systems in a product development setting
    • Deep theoretical understanding of electrochemical science and systems
    • Expert in developing models with a scientific programming language; Python experience is preferred
    • Experience with JMP or statistical analysis software is a plus
    • Strong technical communication skills, especially with remote team members
    • Must be able to obtain US work authorization
