Northvolt has an exciting job opportunity for a IT Support Specialist to join our passionate IT team at our R&D Factory in Västerås. We are looking for a service-minded, solution-oriented team player who can make sure that we offer top-class support to our employees in all things IT. Don't know “all-things-IT" yet? That's fine – keep reading!

Northvolt is positioning itself to play a critical role in the shift to a carbon-free society by building one of the first large-scale European battery factories. In order to execute on our plans we need to make sure that our teams are productive, and that the support we provide them is excellent, professional and delivered with a smile.

We know that quality IT is key to this, but we are also keen to recruit and nurture junior professionals. In joining us you will not only play an important part in the Northvolt mission, but develop yourself and your skills in purpose-driven and thrilling environment.

We are looking for someone with the skills and personality to handle a wide range of IT issues. Whether it’s a Japanese Cell Design Engineer by your desk requiring a software update, a German Automotive Program Manager on the phone needing intranet access, an offline printer or a dodgy network connection in a meeting room, we need someone who can juggle problems, support their colleagues and find solutions!

To be successful in this role, and at Northvolt in general, you need to have a positive and action-oriented attitude, as well as a service-minded approach. You don’t need to be a professional with twenty years’ experience, but it would be ideal if you have some previous involvement in IT support/helpdesk, and it would be even better if you have engaged with start-up environments or other equally mildly action filled (read: chaotic) environments.

Candidates should have broad knowledge in IT and enjoy seeking the latest tools to develop an IT department. You should be passionate about tech and people, and thrive in a challenging and fast-paced environment, where you’re happy to take the initiative and go that extra mile to find and deliver innovative and creative solutions.

Again, you don’t need to "know it all" yet – we would rather see that you are curious, eager to learn and keen to develop under the wisdom of our senior IT gurus in the direction you imagine your IT career advancing within Support Engineering, Desktop Engineering or Productivity Engineering.

You must be comfortable writing and speaking in English, and Swedish is a plus. (An ability to say "Thank you" and "You’re welcome" in Japanese would be handy too – but we'll teach you that!)

So if we caught your attention and this sounds like a role for you, what are you waiting for?

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Administering and coordinating hardware orders, licenses, network lines and services
  • Working closely together with project managers and HR, and facilitating onboarding
  • Setting up necessary training sessions for teams
  • Proactive work towards continual improvements of processes, tools and routines
  • Handling relations with suppliers and vendors
  • Managing Office 365 and backup systems of internal data
  • Managing intranet (no coding required)
  • Administering office hardware (TV, printer, monitors, keyboards, conference phones etc)

Apply with CV and cover letter or your complete LinkedIn profile.

Full time employment, fixed salary.
Planned starting date is asap.

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.
