Join us and be a pioneer for a green transport revolution.
Automotive Cells Company (ACC) is one of Europe’s newest and most exciting high-tech companies. Backed by Saft-Total, Stellantis and Mercedes-Benz, ACC is set to power the future of the automotive industry by innovating in battery technology.
We aim to produce sustainable, affordable, high-capacity, longer-life batteries as a cleaner alternative to current energy sources. We have created an R&D center and new state-of-the art facility in Nouvelle Aquitaine, France, and we are building gigafactories in Germany and Italy, in addition to the one already built in Hauts de France.

We need a range of skilled and agile people to bring our vision to life, especially in the areas of industrialization, mechanical design, testing/prototyping and any other function of a new-born company. If you’re looking to take your career further than you imagined, if you’re passionate about creating cleaner transport, we’d like to hear from you.

Our core Values are : Pioneering Spirit, Fast & Agile, Excellence, Greener & Cleaner !

We are also very proud of our 2022 CSR Report :

Accelerating sustainable mobility for all.

Overall job definition :

The focus is on cathode electrodes optimization/development, technical specifications of non-active chemical components with deep knowledge on the cathode electrode design and material characterization.

Main missions :

- The electrodes team drives the composition, development, characterization, and testing of cathode electrode formulation according to specified product goals.

- The Cathode electrode Engineer is responsible for advising on the choice of non-active materials (PVDF, CB, dispersive, boehmite…) that will improve architecture and design ofcathode electrodes.

- In the product development process, the Cathode electrode engineer is responsible for the evaluation and characterization of new cathode electrodes formulation using physical and chemical techniques.

- During the Scale-up of Product, the Electrode engineer is in support of Process/Project/Quality teams for the technical topics/issues related to her/his field.

- She/He should be responsible of Root cause analysis understanding related to cathode electrodes in the context of Product manufacturing scale-up and on-site support of the pilot plants if required.

- As well as technical specifications linked to cathode formulation and ceramic coating.

- The main objective is to ensure that the cathode electrodes meet the cell specifications during the various phases of product scaling. For this purpose, planning, and driven cathode electrodes DOE from laboratory to pilot scale its required, in addition to root cause analysis to understand degradation mechanism/issues in electrodes.

- The main outputs of this work are product/process specifications, DOE validation reports and risk product assessment.

- Close work with Chemical component group (CAM) is required to enable the transition from high performing raw materials to cathode electrodes.


Knowledge :

Battery manufacturing, battery design process, materials chemistry, electrochemistry, chemical laboratory experience and design of experiments.
