Northvolt is looking for frontend and mobile software engineers to join our software team and help build out modern interfaces for a next generation manufacturing system. You will be contributing in your area from the very start in building one of the first large scale European battery factories, which will play an important role in the transformation to a carbon free society. This is a greenfield project in a complex field, which requires a combination of proven technologies and design of new innovative solutions.

You will collaborate with a cross-functional group of experts from factory automation, battery systems, software engineering and machine learning to design and implement highly functional and responsive websites and applications.

  • Keep up with the state of the art in frontend libraries and frameworks, cross-platform software development, and engineering processes, as well as develop more domain knowledge in related areas such as automation, battery systems, manufacturing and connectivity.

  • Help us build a great team and make Northvolt an amazing place to work!

The stack:

  • Frontend: REACT application built with TYPESCRIPT talking to a GRAPHQL backend.

  • IoT: For many applications, such as manufacturing equipment in the factory or battery packs in electrical vehicles, we deploy and maintain embedded client applications written in GO on custom hardware.

  • Cloud: A serverless environment with Golang and technologies such as Kubernetes, ElasticSearch, DynamoDB, S3, Lambda, and MQTT.

  • API: All factory and battery resources are exposed through a GRAPHQL API.
