Northvolt has an exciting job possibility for an software engineer that wants to be a part of making oil history.

You will play an important role in the design and development of the battery factories and battery test facilities, which will help the transformation to a carbon free society.

About the role

As Edge Software Engineer at Northvolt you will be responsible to deliver monitoring, traceability and control for the equipment in our factories . Your software will run on our edge gateways, which are the link between the PLCs, that control the machines, and the cloud. It runs 24x7 on our fleet of hundreds of devices the across the site and enables Northvolt to make better decisions.

The data we collect monitors and drives our production process and testing facilities. They provide a live report on how every cell is manufactured and how it is performing.

To make this happen, you will talk with the control engineers, suppliers and other cross-functional teams to understand how the machine is built, what its software interface looks like and how to get the data we need. Then you will design, write, test and deploy an application to collect the data and integrate the machine into our production process. You will need to get a in depth understanding of the production process and data flow in our system to support with root cause analysis to enable upgrades in our environment.

Part of that process is to manage the software that runs on our fleet of edge devices. This requires to deliver software and OS updates to thousands of edge gateways remotely, reliably, securely and at scale. For this, we have built a custom fleet management system and Linux distribution that you and the team continuously improve.

How we work

Our software is written in Go and we open source software like GitHub - gopcua/opcua: Native Go OPC-UA library . We choose carefully which services, tools and libraries we use since we need to have long-term maintainability in mind. Because of this, we try to focus on simple solutions that we can write ourselves and if possible rely on managed services from AWS.

What we expect from you

We require some basic understanding of algorithms, data structures, concurrency, distributed systems and eventual consistency but you don’t have to be an expert. We value passion, curiosity and willingness to learn on the job and teach you what you need to know.

You know how to explain your ideas to your peers and like to find solutions to complex problems. You are comfortable to work independently and value the support you get from the team. You are comfortable to challenge the status quo since we don’t have all the answers either.

Skills & Requirements

  • Basic knowledge of algorithms, data structures, concurrency, distributed systems and eventual consistency
  • Experience with one or several programming languages (Go, Python, Java, ...)
  • Good communication skills, a learning mindset and the ability to Get Stuff Done
  • Passion for solving problems with technology

Keywords : Go, Python, algorithms, concurrency, data structures, distributed systems, eventual consistency, automation, DevOps

About the company

Northvolt makes green batteries for a blue planet. Affordable cells and high-quality battery systems. All manufactured with a record-low carbon footprint. Purposely built to provide Europe with the opportunity to switch to renewable energy – efficiently and entirely.

To accomplish this, we do things differently. We design, manufacture, and recycle everything under one roof. We even build our own factories. All this is incredibly challenging and requires us to think in unconventional ways. We’re constantly experimenting, learning and adapting to make batteries so great – they will one day make oil history.

Northvolt is growing fast. We’re staffing our international office in Stockholm, our R&D facility, Northvolt Labs, in Västerås, as well as our Gdansk facility for production of battery systems. We're also hiring for our gigafactory Northvolt Ett in Skellefteå, Sweden. We want to work with smart individuals from all disciplines. Strong individuals that truly want to make a positive impact on the future. Those of us already on board share a passion for our mission. We’re prepared to work hard in pursuit of excellence. We enjoy the ride and our main drive is to make a difference for real. As a team, we’re dedicated to thinking new, working hard and having fun.
