Lead Engineer

Permanent employee, Full-time · Hesperange

Your mission
Do you want to join our rockstar team of innovators and make a REAL impact in the sustainability space?

We at Circu Li-Ion fight the climate crisis by maximising the lifecycle of each li-ion cell. Used batteries are a true
​resource – more than 80% of battery cells can be recovered when a battery is at the end of its first life, while at the same time significantly reducing CO2 pollution. This means less waste, saving CO2 and using our resources to
their full potential.
We have designed a machine to extract and diagnose each li-ion cell in an automated manner from their battery 
packs and enable their re-usage. Our process sets new technological and ecological standards, closing the loop 
and fully enabling the circular economy in the battery industry.
