Northvolt has an exciting job offer for a Factory Simulation Engineer to join our diverse and passionate Blueprint team in Stockholm.

In joining us you will play an important part from the very start in building one of the first large scale European battery factories. Northvolt will play an important role in the transformation to a carbon free society.

As a Factory Simulation Engineer, you will interact with factory design in the very early phases. Together with the team, you will contribute dimensioning equipment and buffer capacities for an efficient line balancing. Another integral contribution of the simulation engineer is to use 3D-simulation models to ensure the factory layout space is optimally distributed for material flow and automation to meet production volumes.

Main tool is discrete event simulation using multidisciplinary input parameters.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Verifying and optimizing factory design by using simulation.
  • Evaluate operating models and overall production capacity.
  • Using a standardized, modular and reusable approach to simulation modelling.
  • Support the Northvolt blueprint philosophy on high level, by capturing best practice manufacturing system configurations to meet production demands.

The person we are looking for is strongly goal oriented, 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 requires and values great self-discipline and a natural talent to make things happen.

Apply with CV and cover letter or your complete LinkedIn profile.

Full time employment, fixed salary.
Planned starting date is asap.

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.
