One of the special things about this company is its location! Situated out of the busy centre of Cambridge and nestled in the countryside, anyone joining this team will benefit from both worlds.

And what they are doing is very special; they've developed (and recently launched!) a clean, sustainable global 21st century high-density energy storage system.

The ONE Group are proud to have been instrumental in their growth and as they embark on the next part of their journey through scale-up, a crucial new hire.

We're on the lookout for a Prototype Development Engineer. This is likely to be a Chemical or Mechanical Engineer who wants to develop their career within a small (but growing!) R&D team, scaling up technology and bringing their engineering strengths to the team.

The Role:

  • Working alongside a x-disciplinary team of Polymer and Electrochemistry Scientists, share your development expertise and support the development of new energy storage products
  • Lead the testing of new system prototypes and providing data analysis
  • Design and create experiments to improve products, such as trialling new materials, form factors or concept designs
  • Develop a pilot line manufacturing process for new prototypes and test for repeat-ability
  • Be part of the scale-up process, utilising new processes or materials from research and testing them in larger cell formats, analysing performance and feeding back into the research team

Must Haves:

  • Chemical or Mechanical Engineering Degree
  • 4+ years' experience in a relevant 'real world' R&D environment
  • Demonstrable hands-on engineering skillset, with a superb understanding of chemical systems and manufacturing processes
  • Start-up mentality
  • Experience with batteries, supercapacitors or similar is preferred
  • Understanding or experience with polymers
  • Experience working with electronic systems, such as sensors, testing equipment or chemical process development


The Package:

  • Dependant on your level, a Senior Engineer could attract up to around £60k. Those with less experience would be £45k+
  • Share options
  • Beautiful, spacious, parkland setting with free parking, shuttle bus from the local rail station and dedicated buses from central Cambridge
  • On-site gym (indoor and outdoor facilities), award winning restaurant and a café bar
  • Perkbox
