We are looking for a dedicated and driven Production Manager to join us in our mission to contribute to build the world’s greenest battery. The role is a part of our passionate Revolt Ett team based in Skellefteå. By joining us, you will be part of building the first in-house full recycling flow in the world. Recovery and effective recycling of end-of-life batteries is key to closing the loop on batteries and to achieve a minimal carbon footprint.

About the job
The need to recycle batteries is increasing and the construction of Europe's largest recycling facility for batteries in Skellefteå is ongoing and will start its production process to separate out valuable metals for reuse in battery production during 2023. The goal is to source 50% of the raw materials needed for cell production from recycling by 2030 and therefore more recycling facilities are planned at site. So, forget about everything you thought you knew about working in the industry, this is going to be completely different!

The Production manager will be in charge of the Revolt Ett production steps Discharging, Dismantling, Crushing & Sorting and Hydromet in Skellefteå. You will have the opportunity to build a competent and dependable production team from scratch, capable to scale Northvolt Revolt’s production in Skellefteå.

  • Analyse production data to identify problems and recommend solutions (for example changes to procedures, workflow, or equipment) that will improve performance.
  • Liaise with functional colleagues (for example in planning, maintenance, process engineering, quality) and together understand current and future needs and develop plans, cost estimates, and schedules for integrating these needs into existing manufacturing activities.
  • Together with maintenance, plan, prioritize, and manage production line maintenance or downtime to minimize disruptions to manufacturing schedule

About the team
You will be a vital member of the Revolt Ett site management team in Skellefteå. Learning the processes and building a production team will be your first tasks. You will receive support from many knowledgeable colleagues throughout Northvolt's organization.

You will work closely with central S&OP, R&D, Industrialization team, purchasing functions, logistics and material handling to maximize efficiency. We expect you to know the modern Operations Management principles: Lean, Kaizen, Six Sigma and must also train and mentor all staff in these principles. You and your team must also have foresight and prepare for the future expansion.

The person we are looking for is driven and highly structured. You thrive by leading others and work towards common goals. You are used to a high paced work environment and got good time management skills. Qualities that we cherish are flexibility, sense of quality, friendliness, motivation to take on new challenges, grit and a sense of humor.

Northvolt is an equal opportunity employer. We're a diverse group of individuals, united by a common mission, who recognise that while our actions as individuals have a role to play in driving Northvolt towards its goals, we always seek to move forward as a team. We offer you an open and welcoming atmosphere where we win as a team – and fail as a team. Northvolt is growing at the speed of light and we are a strong believer in internal career development.

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.
