Do you want to be a part of a young, hungry start-up working towards electrifying the world's vehicles and machines? Do you want to feel the exhilaration of working with a team of like-minded future-forward people using cutting-edge technology to create advanced battery systems? Then we think you might just belong with the ELEO crew.

We're growing every day, which means we need more brilliant minds joining the team. Right now, that means a Mechanical R&D Engineer to come on board brimming with ideas and ready to take the battery industry by storm with us! 

What will you do as a Mechanical R&D Engineer at ELEO?

At ELEO we create cutting-edge battery systems with superior energy density to power a wide variety of electric applications. Your baby will be implementing the battery systems in various applications depending on the specified requirements of our clients—working closely with them to ensure that their needs are being met. You will also be required to join in on our awesome monthly beer sessions and BBQs :)

Your work includes:

  • Developing and optimizing innovative mechanical solutions
  • Analysis and simulation of design problems (mechanical, thermal, etc.)
  • Working in multi-disciplinary engineering teams
  • Requirements formulation and technical documentation
  • Both system-level and detailed engineering
  • Product development
  • Prototyping and testing

A day in the life of a Mechanical R&D Engineer:

Your day kicks off with a cup of coffee, giving you the caffeine fix you need to get started. You check your email/messages for any updates and then check in with the project leader Jules Frints . You and your team are working on designing the integral inner components of the battery pack based on the client's needs. When the design is complete, you'll move on to prototyping and building the components. But, first thing's first! 

Yesterday you found some issues with the design. You brainstorm with your fellow engineers on how to solve this issue, which leads to a jam-sesh of ideas and designs for how to fix it. 

Next, it's time for lunch. If it's a nice, sunny day you head outside to catch some rays with your teammates on a lunch walk.

Full and happy, you hop back in and improvise a set-up to test your initial designs and improvise a set-up to test your ideas. Success! Concept 2 seems promising! You head back to your laptop to finish up the designs so you can order a prototype. 

You wrap up your work and it's time to go home! You had an awesome, productive day and got a ton of great work done with your team. Enjoy your evening, and see you tomorrow!
