Process Operator - Manufacturing Associate (Free form)

Some of Europe’s largest companies have put their faith in Northvolt because they know our green batteries can make a real difference. But we need people like you to help us drive this mission forward. We are now recruiting operators to several parts of our production in Skellefteå.
About the job

As an Operator, you’ll work at the heart of Northvolt – where battery cells are manufactured. Key duties involve control and monitoring of the machines, re-filling material and contributing to continuous improvements on the line.

Precise tasks and what your working day looks like depend on where in production you work. In some Operator roles you don’t work close to machines, but instead service workstations with materials, ensure batteries are packed and ready to leave the factory, or support production in other vital ways. You will work in in close collaboration with other operators, shift leaders, maintenance, quality and environment personnel.

At Northvolt, you will be part of a fast-growing company with high energy. Battery production is a completely new base industry in Sweden. Unlike many other industries, most of the production occurs in cleanrooms and are highly automated.

About the team
You will be part of a team were each and everyone counts. We work hard to create a good work environment, to make room for creativity and for people to grow, while encouraging initiatives for improvement. We aim to become the world’s most equal and includisive workplace.

Collaboration, kindness, and problem-solving is the way of life at Northvolt. We take each other to the next level by challenging and supporting one another. This sets the stage for how we get things done: We take ownership, we grow with our tasks, and we go to work knowing we make a difference that matters.

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.
