We are looking for a dedicated thermal simulation engineer to join us in our mission to contribute to a greener future. The role is within our excellent simulation team based in Västerås. By joining us, you will be a key player in supporting the design of the next generation of lithium-ion batteries and contributing to building one of the first large-scale European battery factories.
About the job
We are looking for a candidate to develop 3D thermal models of lithium-ion batteries to deliver to automotive customers and perform 3D thermal simulations to support cell design decisions. The candidate is expected to design tests to characterize and validate the models they develop and communicate their simulation results clearly with colleagues and automotive customers. This role offers an excellent opportunity to work closely with highly experienced cell designers and gain a deep understanding of the inner workings of lithium-ion batteries, which provides an excellent foundation for a career within the lithium-ion battery and electric vehicle fields.
About the team
The cell-level simulation team is based in Västerås, Sweden. The team consists of five dedicated simulation engineers and is set to expand to nine within the next year. We have divided the team into electrical, electrochemical, thermal, and mechanical specializations but we collaborate regularly to tackle the multiphysics nature of problems in lithium-ion batteries. With this position, we are looking to extend our thermal simulation capabilities to meet the high demand for this topic.
Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

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.
