Cloud Engineer - Platform

  • Stockholm
  • Stockholm

Northvolt is looking for Cloud Engineers to join our Digitalization Platform team. As a Platform Cloud engineer, you will be contributing towards building the first set of large scale European battery factories (Northvolt will build a total of 5 Gigafactory’s across Europe in the next few years with a total of 170GWH output ), which will play an important role in the transformation to a carbon free society.

Northvolt Ett, Northvolt’s first Gigafactory in Europe, sets a global example in the world of manufacturing with its cloud-first strategy, also referred to as the next-gen connected factory, or Industry 4.0. To build this connected factory, Northvolt is extensively using Amazon Web Services (AWS) for modern cloud capabilities. Using the higher levels of abstractions provided by modern cloud services allows us to increase developer productivity, operational effectiveness, security, and reliability. Examples include detailed product traceability, near-real-time monitoring of manufacturing line effectiveness, computer vision powered defect detection, and machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) modeling to predict quality and performance of the produced battery cells. Check out this blogpost on our blueprint strategy for our factories.

Insights from the team
We work with a "cloud-first"-mindset which presents us with unique and interesting challenges, pushing the traditional ways of working in manufacturing. We have a ruthless focus on automating all our (development) processes, helping us to deliver value to our customers as quickly as possible.

Currently we are a team of 12 engineers focusing on a wide variety of technologies including Kubernetes (EKS & k3s), backend development, frontend development, networking, serverless, embedded Linux and anything security. We work in an agile framework, with a product owner who demonstrates confidence in our ability to do the job, and with hands-on experience to chip into our discussions. We work as a cross-functional team, where we collaborate tightly to have a common view on our strategy and the recommendations we provide. Far from the ivory towers, we work closely with the product teams to provide guidance based on need, ensuring coherence and hands on development of shared components.

We know that many different names are given to this role in other companies, and your experience likely spans a variety of areas including software development, cloud and traditional infrastructure. It is likely that in the past you have had titles like devops, infrastructure, software, cloud or site reliability -engineer/architect.

We are a new company with great plans and great people. We are constantly figuring out solutions to new types of problems. If you are a problem solver, this is for you!

Things you will do:

  • Bring best practices from DevOps and site reliability engineering disciplines to industrial technology while building and improving the tooling needed to support this.

  • Design, test and deploy infrastructure to operate a modern factory producing large amounts of data and connected batteries daily using infrastructure as code.

  • Collaborate with software engineers to develop automation solutions for how we safely test and deploy code on anything from battery packs to cloud to factory equipment.

  • Work to develop and help to document Northvolt’s processes around infrastructure and software deployment, best practices and ways of working.

  • Work with the Security team to continuously test, monitor, and improve the security of our infrastructure.

  • Work with our IT department to help build out the right network architecture and deployment solutions for 3rd party software we need.

  • Improve and build the ML/AI Platform leveraging the data available from all our factories

  • Collaborate with a cross-functional group of experts across the company to make sure we build the right things together for the right reasons and learn how electrical batteries are designed, developed, and manufactured from cradle to grave

  • Keep up with the state of the art in infrastructure, “everything as a software,” virtualization, CI/CD frameworks, cross-platform software development, engineering processes, as well as develop more domain knowledge in related areas (among others, automation, battery manufacturing and connectivity)

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

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.
