Vacancy:
Battery consultant
The company

Bax is an innovation consultancy that supports changemakers to build pilots, tools, and collaborations that turn ideas into societal impact.

With offices in Barcelona, Brussels, Cambridge, Düsseldorf, and Utrecht, we power more than 1,200 public and private organisations to design and pilot new solutions for the biggest challenges facing our society and environment. From the energy transition, to urban greening to healthcare innovation, we work on ideas that matter with changemakers from every corner of society.

With a network of 3,000 partners and active projects in 44 countries, clients who work with Bax join one of Europe’s biggest innovation ecosystems. Every one of our clients and partners is putting a big idea into the real world. Everyone believes in collaboration and real-world testing. And everyone receives committed support from Bax and our team of 75 innovation specialists.

The position

As a consultant, you will be taking the lead in client-facing assignments, managing one or multiple junior colleagues and supporting business development activities.

We expect you to participate in different assignments that may cover substantially different fields – from the development of next-generation batteries for electromobility to practices and technologies for reusing and repurposing end-of-life batteries. We do not formally require you to have a strong background in particular fields, but we expect that you will work to the utmost of your ability to quickly adapt and learn on the job, especially those within materials, energy engineering, and related technological domains.

Your activities will include working closely with one or two other Bax  consultants, several junior colleagues, as well as with clients and other parties that Bax collaborates within its assignments.

You can find more information on our work in Batteries here, to check the types of assignments we work on.

This job is based in our headquarters, the Barcelona office.
