Join the team
Are you ready to come join us in changing the world of energy storage? Great! We would love to share what it is like to work at Silatronix. First, there is a lot of chemistry and battery talk. If you're of a chemical or electrochemical background that's fantastic, you will fit right in! But what if you're not a chemist? No problem at all, because you too will become a chemical expert via "Office Osmosis".
Working at Silatronix is rarely boring. As a smaller company there are ample opportunities to wear more than one hat if you so desire. When you're not busy working on the latest new molecule or battery test, chances are good that something fun will be going on. For example, the day Adrián put that excess liquid nitrogen to good use by making ice cream.... delicious! Did you say you happen to have a deep knowledge of random Taylor Swift trivia questions? That could come in handy around here. One final note on our dress code: flannel is encouraged but not required on Fridays.
Silatronix is an equal opportunity employer.
