Senior Process Engineer

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.
