Volledige vacaturetekst


As a global market leader in sensing & driving solutions, targeted for Automotive as well as Adjacent markets, Melexis is continuously expanding in applications that require semiconductor solutions with high levels of integration/miniaturisation and value-add. As batteries are a fundamental part of the future E-mobility, but also for ESS (Energy Storage Systems), the charge acceptance beyond 5C (full charge in <12 minutes) and transient charge acceptance are key, but should come without the penalty of cell degradation. Melexis has IP in this field that requires a lead engineer leveraging a strong background in Li-ion electrochemistry with a double focus: an internal focus to develop and validate the new concepts, as well as an outward focus, to forge strategic alliances with partners & industry experts in the value chain – possibly under EU funding.
