Manufacturers of portable products such as cordless power tools, garden tools and vacuum cleaners are the most experienced users of Li-Ion batteries. Silent, sustainable and packed with power, this market will keep growing, adding everything that’s still powered with a cord or small combustion engine. Together with the expanding micromobility market including e-bikes, e-scooters and electrical kick-bikes, there is a rapidly increasing demand for good sustainable batteries.

Northvolt is now looking for a Business Development Manager responsible helping companies within the portable and micromobility market segment to become more sustainable by using the World's Greenest Battery.

We believe that you have a genuine technical interest and strong experience as Business Development/Key Account Manager and in managing customer development projects involving technical, timing and financial elements. As a person you are curious, structured, love to execute plans and meet ambitious targets. Communication skills, the ability to guide an internal project team in time management and the attitude to foster a productive and passionate culture are key success factors.

You will be a part of the Business Development team and report to our Director of Business Development – Portable & Micromobility.

You will be based in Stockholm or Västerås, Sweden and travel on a regular basis to our customers throughout Europe and occasionally beyond.

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