Robotics & Mechatronics Internship

Intern / Student, Full-time · Karlsruhe

Your mission
Circu Li-ion is driving the green revolution by prolonging the lifespan of individual battery cells through our cutting-edge automated battery disassembly lines. Our systems disassemble Li-ion battery packs into reusable Li-ion cells, minimizing waste and maximizing sustainability. By upcycling these cells into second-life CO2-neutral battery packs, we're revolutionizing the way batteries are reused and recycled for a better future.  

Your role
We're looking for a Robotics Engineering intern to join our team and help us revolutionize the opening of power tool, micro-mobility, and electric vehicle batteries using robot arms. As an intern in this role, you'll be responsible for planning, organizing, coordinating, and implementing new strategies to safely and efficiently open these batteries to increase the battery library. Working alongside our skilled and diverse engineering team, you'll have the opportunity to tackle complex technical challenges and contribute to our cutting-edge technology.

  • Conduct DoE (design of experiments) to select optimal process parameters for opening battery packs
  • Perform tests (milling, drilling, cutting, unscrewing) on battery packs 
  • Create an innovative pipeline for battery disassembly process 
  • Debug and operate robot code on various platforms (e.g. ABB, UR) 
  • Develop concepts for designing robotics system elements to open battery packs
  • Identify battery pack components, understand their functions, and safely remove them 
  • Troubleshoot issues that may occur during battery pack opening and cell block extraction. 
Your profile
  • Bsc/Msc in Robotics, Mechanical, Electrical or Process Manufacturing with robotics knowledge 
  • Experience in debugging industrial robot code (eg: ABB, UR), conducting experiments, and conceptualizing mechanical components for robots 
  • Familiarity with DoE methods 
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills *
  • Highly motivated, curious, team-oriented, and ready for challenges 
  • Minimum availability of 6 months
Why us?
  • High degree of collaboration and autonomy while working with a group of highly committed and supportive peers.  
  • REAL environmental impact at scale  
  • Transparent culture with flat hierarchies where every person is highly valued.  
  • Developing your professional skills by taking over responsibilities.  
  • Getting things done attitude, and access to cutting edge technologies.  
  • A guaranteed steep continuous learning curve from day one.  
 If we could spark your interest and you want to be part of the green energy revolution, we look forward to hearing from you!
