Northvolt‘s journey started in Västerås, Sweden with Northvolt Labs, a prototyping factory already in operation. The first phase of giga-factory - Northvolt Ett in Skellefteå is about to start manufacturing, while further expansion project has already kicked off. In Poland we have just broken ground on which a new Northvolt Systems assembly plan will be constructed. In joining us you will play an important part from the very start, building the landscape of first large scale European battery factories. Northvolt will play a significant role in the transformation to a carbon free society.

We have an awesome job offer for a Senior Planning and Logistics Developer to join our excellent and passionate team at Northvolt in Stockholm. As key player in our Team your assignment will be to to plan, design, develop and implement logistical solutions for cell manufacturing and recycling activities, securing Northvolt’s successful growth in Sweden, Poland, Germany and beyond.

You would as well play an active role in recruitment of your future "on the ground" colleagues. Having prepared a solid framework you would hand over executional responsibility to the local organisation you would have co-recruited.


In broad terms and without going into too much detail, Team Logistics and Planning looks after everything that moves or needs to be stored. Before it does, we also need to do quite a bit of planning.

Our job is:

  • to support Northvolt’s mission, growth and expansion with quality planning and logistics design
  • to build a scalable operational and organisational framework, within which Northvolt units execute and
  • to enable a sustainable, resilient and efficient supply chain


First and foremost - you are a supply chain professional at heart. In your career you had the opportunity to work with different pockets of a broader supply chain scope, ideally in different industries, with one of them being OEM / Tier1 landscape.

You understand very well the importance of SIOP, planning and forecasting as an enabler for a successful operational execution. You used to be engaged in capacity studies, identified bottlenecks and secured availability of resources.

However, we believe that your true passion lays in Logistics with an overall good experience in both transportation and warehousing, with a deep knowledge in one of them if not both. You have experience in designing and/or developing logistical networks or managed the execution, monitoring, and follow up of international shipping across different transport modes. You have been part of bigger RFQs and feasibility studies of Logistical resources delivering requirements and analysis to the projects. You are familiar with the administrative side of the logistical process, documentation required to despatch, clear customs, receive and store cargo.

Ideally, you have had a chance to experience all or part of the above in an environment of very quick growth, where you are not always in possession of all the information you would wish for, and where data at hand may be incomplete.
At Northvolt, we grow like hell. Having shipped only parcels just 3 years ago, we will very soon move tens of thousands of container loads per annum, across various geographies.

It's pretty amazing, right?

Together with the Team, in your job you will:

  • be the main contact for planning logistics queries regading movement and storage of raw materials, components
  • lead Planning and Logistics development projects within Northvolt cell manufacturing and recycling landscape
  • prepare logistical input for future Northvolt factories' design
  • liaise with colleagues and stakeholders and prepare relevant business requirement information necessary for procurement of logistics services
  • onboard Logistics Service Providers for relevant operational assignments
  • prepare and anchor internal and external Standard Operational Procedures for planning and logistical processes
  • take part in recruitment of colleagues across both Group, as well as Local Planning and Logistics organisations
  • serve as an escalation point for colleagues representing Northvolt Planning and Logistics operations
  • support implementation of vital planning and logistics systems: MRP, MES, WMS, TMS
  • continuously improve overall Northvolt operations

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.
