Hello awesome!

Northvolt is looking for an art director that aspires to save the world with sticky ideas, creative concepts and an explosion of pixel magic. Think you have it? Read on!

You’ll join the Northvolt’s brand team. A tight knit group of overworked greatness. So far this rag tag team of doers, designers and one lonely copywriter has been busy defining the brand through owned and earned channels. But in 2022 we’re gearing up to do really clever advertising. And that my friend, is your cue to enter the great halls of history.

As our first art director you’ll be responsible for having tonnes of fun cracking 1000s of ideas, throwing more than 900 away and putting the rest of them to good use in Social media ads and content, some outdoor, news papers , PR stunts and why not the first YouTube bumper no-one will skip?

Sound like fun? Okay, just remember that a lot of the stuff we do (not all) is targeted towards big-wig decision makers. AKA B2B. So that Super Bowl idea for a tasteless lager you had? Tell it to wait You need to save mankind avoid global warming first. Cheers!

The first stop towards rescuing the planet will be to man our big, hi-tech, robot infested battery factory in Skellefteå with workers. No we’re not asking you to work there! But we need you to market it. Sell it to people with a steady job. Like we’re doing right now.

But enough all the boring descriptions of your colourful future. You know, the one where your mom will cry tears of joy and your father will finally surrender to the fact that you didn’t take a real job. Let’s present the winning formula for landing this gig:

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.
