Northvolt has exciting job offers for a senior process development engineer to join our bold battery systems team in Stockholm.

In joining us you will play an important part from the very start in developing a new generation of battery system and building a large scale European battery factory. Northvolt will play an important role in the transformation to a carbon free society, and this is your opportunity to take part in leading those efforts and help drive us to success.

We are continuously building a team of both experienced engineers and great leaders with engineering background.

Process development engineers are responsible for the planning and organisation of deliverables within a given process area for new system assembly processes; creating DOE's, generation of process specifications, developing capability through prototype sample builds and bringing a repeatable and capable production line into the factory, with safety at front of mind.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Development of new manufacturing processes to ensure successful launch of new products.
  • Characterize processes, define critical parameters, run DOE's, and establish controls that allow measurement of process capability.

  • Define process development plan, describing major elements of transition from design to manufacturing.

  • Identify and evaluate process improvement areas through data analysis and interpretation.

  • Support Design for Manufacturability and Assembly (DFMA) activities.

  • Ownership and drive development of the PFMEA.

The person we are looking for is strongly goal oriented, curious and eager to learn. You will get the chance to have a real impact on our success story in Sweden (to start with) and see the results of your work. Our organization requires and values great self-discipline and a natural talent to make things happen. The process development engineer is a vital member of the Northvolt Systems manufacturing engineering team and key to Northvolt's mission to enable the future of energy.

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.
