Northvolt has one exciting job opening to join our Recycling Purchasing team in Västerås and one job opening in Skellefteå.

Sustainability is our mission: we are establishing a robust ecosystem for battery recycling in order to close the loop for Lithium-ion batteries- this is Revolt.

We plan to significantly grow in the next few years while we establish a complete ecosystem for battery recycling in Europe and this will require a strong focus on procurement of equipment, materials and services.

Today we have a recycling pilot plant in Västerås to demonstrate our process solution, we are starting a recycling hub in Norway and building a full-scale recycling plant in Skellefteå to secure a goal of 50% recycled material in new cells Northvolt will produce by 2030.

In this role you will be involved in sourcing and execution activities related to Pilot related procurement categories in the recycling process, building a close cooperation with suppliers and ensuring a strong supplier base to sustain Revolt growth in Europe.

The person we are looking for is strongly goal oriented, curious and eager to learn. Potential evolution for this role is an MRO Purchasing Specialist role. You will get the chance to have a real impact on our success story in Sweden and see the results of your work. Our organization requires and values great self-discipline and a natural talent to make things happen.

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.
