Energy Vault is the creator of renewable energy storage products that are transforming the world’s approach to utility-scale energy storage for grid resiliency. Applying conventional physics fundamentals of gravity and potential energy, the system combines an innovative crane design that lifts specially designed, massive composite blocks with a proprietary, cloud-based software platform which orchestrates the storage and discharge of electricity. Utilizing eco-friendly materials and manufacturing processes at unprecedented economics, Energy Vault is accelerating the shift to a fully renewable world.
As Senior Materials Engineer, you will lead the design and synthesis for the composite blocks/bricks in the energy storage systems. A director of the testing and processing procedures, you will write technical specifications, taking into account economic factors; you will also monitor how different materials perform and deteriorate, predicting and minimizing product failure. You’ll also perform root cause analyses when there are failures. The impact of materials processing on the environment will be important to you.
