The Mechanical Engineer will primarily engage in the ongoing development of Fluence’s energy storage products, focusing on the mechanical design. Fluence deploys lithium-ion batteries in utility scale projects, typically inside of metal enclosures. The work will be focused on systems related to the structural design of the enclosures; internal equipment layout for ease of manufacturing, installation, and maintenance; cooling and fire suppression system design; and design to meet various published technical standards and codes. Fluence is looking for an experienced mechanical engineer who can tackle difficult technical problems and perform design work. The ideal candidate will have a broad mechanical engineering background as well as strong proficiency in 3D CAD and finite element analysis. Experience with cooling systems, both air cooling and liquid cooling, is also beneficial.




Required qualifications:


  • 7+ years’ experience


  • Experience with developing products from the concept stage through prototyping, final design, and manufacturing


  • Highly experienced with solid model design software (preferably including SolidWorks), including performing structural FEA analysis


  • Takes individual initiative and works with minimal supervision while being a collaborative team player. Possesses sound business judgment.


  • Has excellent English verbal and writing skills.





The additional qualifications below are preferred but not required:


  • Experience performing mechanical design of electrical power equipment, such as electrical panels, power converters, or control panels.
