Posted on Friday, October 21, 2022

Cuberg is commercializing a next-generation lithium metal battery to power the rise of electric mobility. Our battery technology provides huge benefits in terms of energy density, power, and safety, all in a format that allows for rapid scaling. Be part of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform the future of electric mobility.

We are currently seeking motivated Interns in the areas of mechanical engineering, materials science, data, and test. We are looking for candidates who have a passion for making an impact in our sustainable energy future and who will thrive in a rapidly evolving, close-knit, and dynamic early-stage startup environment. The ideal candidate will think independently, be unafraid to take on major responsibilities, and perform all tasks with diligence and care.

Join us in building the future of energy.
