Northvolt is seeking an experienced Senior Software Engineer to join our Digitalization Platform team. This is a rare opportunity to build the software that powers the largest battery factories in Europe and play a critical role in transforming society to a carbon-free future. With the company building a total of five Gigafactories across the world in the next few years, you will be at the forefront of the green industrial revolution.

As a Platform Software Engineer, you will be part of the team building the next-gen connected factory or Industry 4.0. Our cloud-first strategy, implemented in Northvolt Ett, our first Gigafactory in Europe, sets a global example in manufacturing. You will be responsible for the platform powering detailed product traceability, real-time monitoring of manufacturing line effectiveness, computer vision defect detection, and machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) modeling to predict quality and performance of the produced battery cells. Check out our blueprint strategy for our factories at https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/industries/northvolts-next-gen-connected-factory-a-digital-blueprint-factory-built-from-scratch/.

At Northvolt, we have a culture of innovation and creativity. We are a team of 19 platform engineers who focus on a wide variety of technologies, including Kubernetes (EKS & k3s), backend and frontend development, networking, embedded Linux, and security. We work with a cloud-first mindset, pushing the traditional ways of working in manufacturing. Our ruthless focus on automating all development processes helps us to deliver value to our customers as quickly as possible.

One of our biggest challenges is developing a blueprint for a digital factory to repeatably commission new factories while scaling the existing ones. As part of our cross-functional team, you will collaborate closely with product teams to provide guidance based on need, ensuring coherence and hands-on development of shared components.

We are a new company with ambitious plans, and we are looking for problem solvers who thrive in a dynamic and fast-paced environment. If you are passionate about technology and innovation, and if you are ready to take on the challenge of building the future, we want to hear from you!

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.
