Graphenix Development Inc.: Battery Materials Engineer

About Graphenix Development Inc. (GDI)

GDI is creating the future of energy storage. GDI’s battery technology will allow electric vehicles to go much farther and batteries to last much longer. When a battery is running low, it will charge in a fraction of the time needed by conventional lithium-ion batteries. But that’s not good enough, not even close. GDI is focused on safety and we’ve got the technology to prove it. But even that’s not enough, which is why we need your help to make the apex lithium-ion battery needed throughout the new economy.

GDI is an investor-backed company focused on electrode development, manufacturing, and advanced materials. Our team collectively has decades of experience and holds over 40 patents. We create cutting-edge technology that will make the world a better place.
