Are you ready to rise to the challenge of climate change with the team that will deliver? Form Energy is a U.S. technology and manufacturing company that is developing and commercializing pioneering energy storage technologies to enable the electric grid to run on 100% renewable energy, every day of the year.

Supported by leading investors such as Breakthrough Energy Ventures, ArcelorMittal, TPG Rise, MIT’s The Engine, and others, we share a common belief that low-cost, multi-day energy storage is the key to enable tomorrow’s zero carbon electric grid. Driven by our core values of humanity, excellence, and creativity, we are deeply motivated and inspired to create a better world. We need talented, hardworking individuals who share our goal of tackling the challenge of climate change. Do you want to work with us today to build a better tomorrow? 

Role Description

In this role, you will be responsible for supporting the development of new products, from the concept phase through full-scale production, with external manufacturing partners. You will be involved in early-stage engineering and manufacturing builds along with engaging suppliers from prototype volume through high-volume production. You’ll have the chance to work with a cross-functional team including Technical Program Managers, Battery Product Design, and Advanced Manufacturing, as well as numerous other teams to manage the risks associated with early-stage product development.

What You'll Do:

  • Collaborate with suppliers to provide DFM feedback, review injection molding simulation output (ex. Moldflow), and approve tooling via molding trials

  • Work with design engineering to downselect early design concepts by providing supplier feedback on materials and manufacturing methods

  • Solicit, compile, and present DFx feedback to the Battery Product Design team from external suppliers to support design concept down-selection

  • Serve as the voice of the supplier to internal engineering teams for EVT, DVT, and PVT build phases

  • Support Global Supply Chain Management as the technical point of contact for RFx efforts as well as developing the technical data package used for soliciting bids from suppliers.

  • Develop custom manufacturing and/or assembly processes to be outsourced to external manufacturing partners

  • Utilize BOMs, CAD models, and your knowledge of plastics manufacturing processes to develop initial manufacturing cost estimates of parts and assemblies based on market information and supplier feedback

What You'll Bring:

  • 4 + years of experience in New Product Introduction (NPI) in hardware development

  • Deep knowledge of thermoplastic molding and secondary processes (injection molding, blow molding, spin welding, ultrasonic welding, etc.) 

  • Experience taking at least one new product from the concept phase through production

  • Experience with product lifecycle management tools (i.e. Arena PLM)

  • Basic knowledge of large plastic part design, plastic painting, injection molding and processing

  • Experience establishing new relationships with suppliers and/or customers

  • Bachelor’s degree in mechanical/manufacturing engineering or related field
