We are looking for a driven Vision Test Engineer to join us in our mission to contribute to a greener future. The role is a part of our Northvolt Systems Test, Measurements and Instrumentation team based in Stockholm, Sweden. By joining us, you will play a key role in creating world-class testing of battery modules, developing automated test stations and prototype testing equipment.

About the job

A key member of the Test & Measurement team, the Vision Test Engineer will develop high accuracy and precision imaging-based automated quality inspections and measurements, sorting, and robotic guidance applications.

Working closely with the Process Engineering and Automations & Controls team, the Vision Test Engineer will help to establish test equipment capable of providing quality measurements and inspections. Starting from hardware selection and machine design through to software programming, commissioning and ramp-up, the Vision Test Engineer will develop test equipment and processes used in prototype and high-speed mass production environment.

About the team

We are continuously building a team of both experienced technicians and engineers and great leaders with deep technical background. You will be joining a growing team of specialists in mechanical, electrical and vision tests, based in Stockholm, Sweden. Our goal is to develop multi-disciplinary tests of battery cells, modules and packs from prototype stage to mass production. We start from the physics of the measurements, to the selection of components, sensors and instruments, and build these systems into low-vibration, low-noise, and interference-free platforms capable of the high-speed measurements required in mass production.

You will be responsible for creating a vision for world class testing of battery modules, from prototyping to mass production.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Collaborating with the Design, Process and Quality teams to define and specify manufacturing vision tests and processes
  • Supporting the execution of DOEs to optimize testing accuracy, precision and improve production output
  • Drafting test specifications, procedures, selecting components and sensors, designing test hardware, executing qualification and validation activities
  • Participating in the design of test stations capable of performing accurate & precise vision tests in a semi-automated (prototyping) to a fully automated (production) environment

The person we are looking for is flexible, 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 values great self-discipline and a natural talent to make things happen. Qualities that we cherish are sense of quality, friendliness, grit and a sense of humor.

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.
