Sr. Automation Electrical Engineer


No matter which country you’re in, the transition from an economy based on fossil fuels to one based on sustainable energy sources is well underway. It takes slightly different approaches, and it progresses from different starting points depending on the area, but it’s clear, we’re all engaged in a global shared “electrification" challenge.

At BASQUEVOLT our mission is to develop sustainably the best battery materials and cells that will make possible the mass deployment of electric transportation, stationary energy storage and advanced portable devices.

Our proprietary solid-state battery technology will allow us to develop and commercialise safe, high performance and affordable products for a diverse portfolio of customers, from mobility, stationary energy storage and consumer electronics.

To this end, we offer three positions to join the team as Sr. Automation Electrical Engineer.



The Sr. Automation Electrical Engineer isresponsible for the definition of the electrolyte manufacturing process of Basquevolt’s solid & semi-solid proprietary cells. The Sr. Automation Electrical Engineer will work closely with the Process Engineering Director to accomplish the process defined targets.

Reporting directly to the Process Engineering director, they will be responsible for:

  1. Develop and execute complex process control system integration projects for Basquevolt current and future scale-up production process.
  2. Program, configure, test, and commission PLC and HMI based control systems to facilitate data acquisition and integrate with supervisory control system.
  3. Configure process measurement instrumentation, integrate associated data acquisition with PLCs, and historize process data to SQL databases.
  4. Specify controls hardware including PLCs and associated IO, to facilitate data acquisition.
  5. Communicate with the equipment vendors for their control system and on-site commissioning of equipment as it is delivered to the factory.
  6. Support to develop of advanced manufacturing process to ensure solid electrolyte Li batteries production in a safe and quality focused manner and to improve process SOPs for all equipment operation.
  7. Design the wiring for the OEM controllers, i.e. robot controller, motion controller, vision system, and create and maintain the system wiring diagram.

The Sr. Automation Electrical Engineer is expected to work as a key team member within the Process Engineering department to provide innovative solutions to process and manufacturing definition of Basquevolt cell solutions.


We are offering one permanent position as Sr. Automation Electrical Engineer that will give you a unique opportunity to work alongside some of the most talented leaders in the lithium battery sector in Europe and provide extensive opportunity for personal growth within the company.

In addition to the appeal of the entire project, BASQUEVOLT offers a very competitive basic salary and conditions.
