We are now looking for a driven Finance Manager. By joining us, you will be at the forefront of building a new company from scratch, growing Northvolt's footprint in Germany and contribute to building one of the largest European battery factories. Our team is currently based in Hamburg with an outreach to our planned gigafactory in Heide, Schleswig-Holstein. Few industries offer as great of an opportunity for career growth and personal development as the European battery industry.

About the job
As Finance Manager for Drei and Northvolts German operations you will be a critical member to set-up and drive our finance operations covering a comprehensive set of tasks, focusing on planning, execution and follow up.

The size of our current operation is still modest, with day-to-day accounting outsourced but the necessity to setting-up the financial control and planning system for the rapid scaling phase. As the project and team expands, you will work closely together with the Director of Business Control to establish local routines fulfilling reporting and accounting requirements, both from a local and from a group perspective. In setting-up the finance system, you will work shoulder-to-shoulder with the corporate finance function and can revert to the expertise at group level.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Set-up, manage and drive the administration of the financial control and planning system
  • Management of the company's overhead budget and business plan
  • Internal reporting; budget, business plan, forecast and business KPIs
  • Risk management - financial, strategic and operational risks communicated and proactively managed
  • Ensure compliance with local and international rules and regulations

The person we are looking for is driven, curious, technically minded with an entrepreneurial spirit. You thrive by working with others towards common goals. You are used to a high paced work environment and got good time management skills. Qualities that we cherish are flexibility, sense of quality, friendliness, motivation to take on new challenges, grit and a sense of humor.

Northvolt is an equal opportunity employer. We're a diverse group of individuals, united by a common mission, who recognise that while our actions as individuals have a role to play in driving Northvolt towards its goals, we always seek to move forward as a team. We offer you an open and welcoming atmosphere where we win as a team – and fail as a team. Northvolt is growing at the speed of light and we are a strong believer in internal career development.

Planned starting date is as soon as possible.

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 and our planned factory in Heide, Germany. 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.
