We are looking for a Data Scientist with expertise in batteries to join us in our mission to contribute to a greener future. You will be a part of our Battery Intelligence Team at our HQ's in Stockholm.

Within Northvolt, our labs, batteries and factories are producing large amounts of data which gets captured in our cloud platforms, processed and organized. Working within the Battery Intelligence Team, we will together use this data from various stages of the battery life cycle to understand, monitor and predict battery health & performance across the fleet of connected batteries and develop state-of-the art machine learning solutions. We use technology and data with the goal to build the smartest and greenest battery.

About the job

We are looking for a passionate problem-solver with a knack for data and batteries to help us build the best models to understand battery health and performance, for us and for our customers.

Example of use cases are: models to help us understand and predict battery aging, connect battery health to usage patterns to understand drivers of aging, as well as detection of anomalies in our battery systems in customer operation.

You will leverage your prior knowledge of batteries and data-driven methods to help us build better models to estimate internal battery states.
You will develop these solutions together with our team of data scientists and collaborate with software engineers to turn them into scalable systems.

Your contribution will allow us to better deliver relevant insights about battery performance and life to our customers and internal data users.

About the team

You will be embedded in a team of Data Scientists and work with teams across Northvolt to help us get the most from our data.

Our team's goal is to use the data we collect across Northvolt and from our battery systems in the field to generate added-value insights about battery performance and life.

We analyze large time series datasets to estimate battery aging remotely, predict aging into the future and analyze relationships and influencing factors between battery usage and aging.

The person we are looking for is flexible, curios 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.

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. For us it’s important to look at your skills and potential, please refrain form including your picture and age with your application to help us with this.

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.
