We are looking for an experienced Industrial Project Manager Recycling to join us in our mission to contribute to a greener future. The role is a part of our passionate recycling team Revolt, and the role will be based at German giga-factory site in Heide and our Germany head office in Hamburg. By joining us, you will be a key player in establishing and ramping up our recycling activities in Europe.

About the job
As Industrial Project Manager Recycling, you will have ownership of delivering Revolt plant(s) to be established in Germany. You will drive the process of getting the facility and equipment specified, designed, procured, delivered, installed, and commissioned. This involves close cooperation with the Revolt process team, as well as with the German Program team project managing the full giga-factory establishment. Furthermore, you will act as key interface towards potential partners, and manage all parties involved in getting the recycling plant up and running. You are an experienced Project Manager from an industrial environment, preferably having led similar plant establishment projects in previous roles.

About the team
The Revolt team currently consists of about 100 people and is in a strong growth phase, as we are getting prepared for starting operations of our first industrial recycling plant Revolt Ett in Skellefteå in 2023. The team is currently spread across three sites; at the head quarter in Stockholm, at our industrial recycling plant in Skellefteå and at our R&D Pilot plant in Västerås. We are now expanding the Revolt team to our next giga-factory site based in Heide and our German head office in Hamburg, where this role will be based.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Project manage the full scope of delivering a fully functional recycling plant, incl. design, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning phases

  • Build and lead a team to deliver on the above scope

  • Act as key link between the Revolt team and the Northvolt Drei Program team, who are driving the giga-factory establishment for cell production in Heide

The person we are looking for is driven, caring and structured. You thrive by leading others and work towards common goals. You are used to a high paced work environment and got good time management skills. Qualities that we cherish are flexibility, sense of quality, friendliness, motivation to take on new challenges, 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.

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.
