  • Gdańsk

Northvolt is a European supplier of high-quality battery cells and systems, made in an environmentally sustainable way. The company was founded in 2016 with the mission to build the world’s greenest battery with a minimal carbon footprint and the highest recycling capabilities.

In the plant located in Gdańsk we produce energy storage systems and battery modules that replace internal combustion engines in industrial machines. Currently Northvolt Poland is increasing its manufacturing capabilities by building a highly-automated, state-of-the-art production plant.

Currently we are looking for TechOps Engineer to join our IT team.

We work with a "cloud-first"-mindset which presents us with unique and interesting challenges, pushing the traditional ways of working in manufacturing. We have a ruthless focus on automating all our IT infrastructure and processes, and applying IaC or IaC like philosophy to each and every aspect of it.

We know that many different names are given to this role in other companies, and your experience likely spans a variety of areas. It is likely that in the past you have had titles like sysadmin, system engineer, infrastructure engineer, devops engineer, SRE engineer or even system architect. It is also very likely that you have significant experience with both *nix and Win platforms, and probably even a bit of networking.

Key responsibilities:

  • Design, test and deploy infrastructure to operate a modern factory producing large amounts of data and connected batteries daily and be at the cutting edge of a so called 4th industrial revolution, Industry 4.0.
  • Bring best practices from various IT engineering disciplines to industrial world and very often be part of optimization and value-added engineering of products, services and solutions from world’s leading technology and manufacturing companies. Simply put, you would be helping us bring industry up to speed with technology.
  • Work to develop and help to document Northvolt’s processes around design, provisioning and deployment of our complete IT and IoT infrastructure.
  • Work with the InfoSec team to continuously test, monitor, and improve the security of our IT and IoT infrastructure.
  • Work with our networking team implementing SDN and IaC automation principles in our industrial, building and private&public cloud networks.
  • Have a day-to-day communication and close relationship with senior engineering and product development teams from some of the biggest technology providers in the world and constantly evaluate and provide early adopters feedback for some of their flagship products and services.
  • Share the platform (tools and competence) and closely work with our DevOps team. We like to think that our TechOps is very similar to our DevOps, just a tiny bit more fun. Meaning that we not only work with products, tools and services that are designed as cloud native and built for automation, but deal with large variety of systems, products and services, each with its own set of challenges and on a different leg of a journey towards technological maturity and advancement. For some, this is cumbersome and tiring process, but for you and us, it is the reason we love our jobs. We find ways to automate things that are not meant to be automated.
  • Work with all our IT teams to help build out the right enterprise architecture and integrate a wide variety of systems and business applications in a way that would minimize manual administration, eliminate repetitive tasks and automate them to an extent which would allow our IT team to not get stuck in administration but focus solely on fun and challenging tasks of further optimization and implementation of new solutions.
  • Collaborate with a cross-functional group of experts across the company to make sure we build the right things together for the right reasons and learn how general mass scale manufacturing works, and how electrical batteries are designed, developed, and produced from cradle to grave.
  • Keep up with the state of the art in IT infrastructure, “everything as a code”, virtualization, “containerization” and IT engineering processes, as well as develop more domain knowledge in related areas (among others, automation, battery manufacturing and connectivity).
  • Help us build a great team and make Northvolt a great place to work!

The position involves working on site with the possibility of working remotely once fully onboarded. 100% remote work is not possible.
