Our mission is to accelerate the EV transition by transforming battery manufacturing with better data and analytics.

JOB DESCRIPTION

About Liminal

Our mission is to accelerate the clean energy transition by decreasing the cost and improving the quality of battery manufacturing. We are pioneers in advanced process inspection & manufacturing intelligence solutions in the battery industry. Our EchoStat® platform uses ultrasound and data analytics to deliver unique insights that create value in battery production by speeding up time-to-market for new batteries, accelerating yield ramp for new production processes, and improving steady-state productivity.

Our Culture and Values

  • We are dedicated to building a world-class, world-positive company.
  • We work closely on a foundation of mutual trust and informed decisions.
  • We value personal growth, continuous learning, and safety.

About the Role

This is an in-person or hybrid role. As a Data Scientist, you will join a small, nimble team of engineers creating cutting-edge battery inspection equipment. You will be an integral part of analyzing the data produced with this equipment, developing a deeper understanding of the data's relationship to the battery's production history and performance, and creating tools and techniques to achieve those goals. On a typical day, you may: perform investigative analysis on experimental data; design and implement algorithms for distilling ultrasonic signals into meaningful features, and correlate those features with performance data; build analytics tools and visualizations to empower our engineers and customers; optimize, automate, and streamline our analytics pipeline, and integrate the pipeline with real-time data streams; or communicate your work to stakeholders with varied backgrounds. You value careful listening, thoughtful questions, and data-driven discussions. You are comfortable with gathering and distilling information to drive the direction of open-ended projects. The ideal candidate will approach this work with a mixture of intellectual curiosity, thoughtful creativity, and methodical rigor. The ideal candidate gets great satisfaction from seeing people do great things with their work, and above all is excited to solve hard problems that have a positive impact on the world’s clean energy future.
