Lab Operator

Imprint Energy provides trusted, safe, and high-performance zinc batteries in form factors that blend electronics into our lives. We print batteries! And that's possible because we developed a green, stable, safe, and non-toxic zinc battery chemistry. We have had good traction providing a safe, disposable, and label-like power source for logistics smart tags, data loggers, and medical patches, and are making inroads to becoming a de facto green battery chemistry alternative as more product designers and customers demand safer and more sustainable electronic products. Imprint has received recognition for its thought leadership and accomplishments: MIT Technology Review Innovators under 35, 50 Smartest Companies, and multiple Best Product and Innovation awards.

You will play an important role in the choice of materials and processing conditions, and writing production documentation for technology transfer. Your choices will help advance Imprint’s products to be produced in the billions of units per year.
