Northvolt has an electrifying job opening for an engineer with experience in the field of material flow and automation equipment (e.g. Automatic Storage and Retrieval Systems, Buffers, Conveyors, Robots). Should you choose to accept this future focused mission, you will play a vital role in designing the infrastructure for enabling efficient and innovative material flow throughout the battery manufacturing process for our next big projects. Do you want to play an important role in the transformation to a carbon free society?

The work environment requires an enthusiastic problem solver. Your projects will be implemented in a production environment which has very high demands on cleanliness and up-time to reach the quality level and production efficiency. We will work with the best solution providers globally to pull this off utilizing a combination of proven technologies and design of new innovative solutions.

Now more about you: Your previous professional work experience as industrial engineer/project engineer/production engineer or other relevant positions has given you an eye for robust industrial designs. This combined with your experience and knowledge in technical project planning, design, commissioning, and manufacturing makes your implementations practical. You love to drive cross-functional discussions and consider and translate all the variables that matter to your internal counterparts and external global suppliers. Even in the face of complex industrial automation projects, you pay attention to detail when it counts, and know how to prioritize for timely delivery of your scope.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Specify equipment in the form of project specifications, requirements, and generating request for quotations.
  • Identify and leverage outside partners for solution development and design.
  • Coordinate with other Northvolt departments (e.g. Construction, Digitization, Supply Chain) to ensure successful execution.
  • Support and provide inputs in the modelling and simulation of individual technologies and entire systems.

  • Work with factory simulation to validate line capacities and develop flow paths.

  • Partner with the automation and controls team to implement the material flow concepts and system design into functions in the FMS/WCS/FCS/MES.

The person we are looking for is goal oriented, can maintain a good sense of humor when pressure rises, curious and eager to learn.

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.
