Software & System Test Leader

  • Stockholm

Do you have what it takes to enable the future of energy? Northvolt is right now looking for a test leader for software & system testing. At Battery Systems we develop high performance li-ion battery systems for several applications. These systems have high requirements when it comes to functional safety, performance and uptime so the quality assurance of the software & system functionality is essential.

We are looking for test leader that will be responsible for our software and system test activities and the build and design of our test environment. You will be part of the control system development team at battery systems which is responsible for the hardware architecture and the software development for battery management, data logging and connectivity control systems.

Key responsibilities:

  • Plan, arrange, coordinate and execute the SW and system testing activities needed, using software-In-the-loop (SIL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) inhouse, and at full system level (with the full real packs or subpacks) at external or internal testing facilities.
  • Developing and improving our test processes.
  • Set-up and develop the Northvolt battery SW & system test environment and designing, building/specifying our test automation and HIL systems.
  • Lead the technology roadmap for the SW & system testing platform so it always matches new projects and products.
    Arrange and plan test activities needed for every SW and system release and also for certification towards functional safety standards.
  • As the SW & System Test and Verification team grows, there is an opportunity to become team leader for that team.
  • Until the test team has grown there will also be hands-on work required like building and setting up the environment, writing test specifications, implementing the test cases etc.

At Northvolt we all work tightly together with a low level of hierarchy, and we encourage different backgrounds and levels of experience. What we all have in common is that we are bold, passionate and in whatever area we are working in we do it with excellence.

If you are interested apply with a cover letter (mandatory) and a CV (or your complete LinkedIn profile). Please add to your application how you can contribute with your background to Northvolt and enable the future of energy.

This job ad does not have a last application date since we will be evaluating and recruiting continuously.

Full time employment, fixed salary. The Battery Systems part of Northvolt is located in Stockholm.
