  • Applications are considered on a rolling basis

The digitalization team at Northvolt is looking for candidates that get excited about the idea of making a factory smart using a cutting-edge technology stack.

What does it mean?

You will work on distributed systems using Go and AWS with large data throughput and strict uptime requirements.

Do you have an example of what I would do?

Working together with a product owner and people from other functional teams, you could work on defining and implementing the logic that determines when a machine is allowed to produce material. To get there, you might get to collaborate with someone that can help you in updating what information we send from our machines or with someone working on a separate system that keeps track of production schedules. When questions come up, you discuss them with the team. Working on this, you are more than likely to talk with people from various backgrounds and nationalities as we are currently people from more than 70 nations working at Northvolt.

What are you looking for in a candidate?

We are looking for someone that feels comfortable in solving problems with code. And who gets excited about tackling challenges. Our software in mainly written in Go. However, previous experience with Go is not a requirement. You may have been working in C, C++, Java, Rust etc. What we do think you have, is an eye for detail and a passion for finding the simplest solution to complex problems.

Why would I apply for this job?

You will be working with amazing people on problems that matter. Not, only for the bottom-line of the company but also for the future of this planet.

What growth opportunities are there for me?

We win as a team - and fail as a team. Things go wrong, and we learn from them. Here you will never feel afraid of making mistakes. You will have the opportunity to take ownership of projects from the get-go and still feel that there is someone who has your back. When you don't know what to do, you can always reach out to your team.

Apply with CV and cover letter or your complete LinkedIn profile. We look forward to hearing from you!
