Element Energy

Element Energy is a dynamic early-stage company that is looking to reimagine battery management.  Our breakthrough algorithms and our patented control system solves critical battery safety and performance issues in the multi-billion dollar large-scale grid storage and electric vehicle battery markets.  Our goal is to reduce the high degradation rates that plague renewable energy and battery storage products, and more importantly, we help mitigate the pervasive problems of battery fires that threaten user safety and property damage.  These solutions are essential for the widespread adoption of clean renewable energy and “the electrification of everything” movement that is changing the world’s renewable energy storage infrastructure.


Element Energy is seeking a software engineer in machine learning / deep learning with substantial industry experience to join our engineering and technology teams. This person will be responsible for software development of advanced deep learning (DL) and machine learning (ML) for CLBMS battery management products. His/Her roles will include managing large amount/scale of data, processing, feature engineering. The focus of development will be specially on new ML/DL algorithms for CLB battery data & features. The deliverables are to run on computing infrastructure in on-premise or managed cloud services such as AWS, Azure, GCP. This is a unique opportunity for someone who is passionate about developing an integrated algorithm/software platform of applications and services for next-generation battery management. You’ll be involved in the complete software development life cycle from product/system concept through to services for customers.
