We are seeking a Mechanical Engineer to join the Module Mechanical Design group, which develops the core battery module and support systems in Form Energy’s long-duration energy storage system. You will own the design of components and assemblies from concept to production, with a strong emphasis on design for manufacturing and assembly. You will creatively solve mechanical design challenges while applying your knowledge of designing plastic components for mass manufacturing. Expect to work with cross-functional teams on requirements definition and validation plans, then deliver a design that meets those requirements. To bring your designs to life, you should be comfortable working in a prototype shop environment, as well as communicating with manufacturers to deliver an optimized, production-ready design. Finally, be prepared to troubleshoot design problems as they arise and work with the Module Mechanical Design team to implement improvements.
The salary range for this role is $108,025 - $133,255. The range listed is what we reasonably expect to pay for this role at the time of this posting. We may ultimately pay more or less than the posted range and may be modified in the future.
