Samsung hiring outside talent, looking for battery experts in USA and Europe



Like any other business out there, Samsung Electronics has its faults. Last year's recall of the Note 7 was a blunder with no analog in recent times, but the way the tech giant responded to the crisis is certainly commendable. 

After implementing an 8 step battery testing procedure and creating a separate team which oversees the whole process of designing, producing, and inspecting parts, Sammie is now looking to recruit some talent that knows a thing or two about power cells. 

The Investor reports that Samsung is now on the hunt for battery experts across the USA and Europe. According to sources of the media outlet, candidates need to have a master's or doctorate's degree in battery science, with priority targets being cell development and battery materials specialists. 

Apparently, some candidates have already been interviewed by Samsung's HR executive in the US, but no further details were given. 

Apart from improving safety measures, the company is also interested in accelerating and enhancing its efforts for producing next-gen solid-state batteries. The main advantages of solid-state power cells are touted to be resistance to catching fire, and a much greater energy density compared to current Li-ion batteries.

This is to me another commendable step by Samsung to wanting to do something in their products that their consumers should really relax in the future about when comes to using anything that would involve using

Whatever they did to the S8 Plus battery, do it to the rest. The sucker is a beast man.
