Job description

Are you excited to help shape the future of battery technology and consequently the future of consumer electronics and mobility? Do you have the engineering wit do drive customer success from a technical perspective? Can you not wait to dive in to a VC-backed deep tech scale-up with the ambition to change the world? Then join our team of ambitious, innovative and entrepreneurial colleagues!


About the job
LeydenJar Technologies is developing a Li-ion (and solid state) battery solution. As LeydenJar's technologies are unique in the industry - 100% silicon film deposited on Cu substrate with PECVD deposition method - the success of our story significantly depends on the morphology of our 100% pure silicon Anode material. As a  PECVD scientist you will have a key roll in the development of the PECVD process that yield to world’s first class pure silicon Anode material.

For this you will be working together in a team of engineers. You will also connect to our batteries scientists to achieve your goals


You will be working on:

  • Improving productivity, stability, and quality or our core PECVD technology
  • Increasing our understanding of plasma chemistry of our PECVD process
  • Assist in designing and experimentally testing of new concepts to improve our plasma equipment and process
  • Specifying required material properties for specific application areas of the product
  • Building up cooperative global network between research institutes, universities, and LJT
  • Keep track on global developments on your topic
  • IP creation for newly developed products

Job requirements

About you:

  • You have thorough understanding on the various deposition methods. PECVD experience is a must.
