Northvolt is looking for a data scientist with machine learning focus for for the Battery Systems Software Engineering Department.

You will be part of realizing our "Connected Battery" vision where data stretching from cell manufacturing to reported data from our systems already in the field at large industrial customers is used to create state-of-the art machine learning solutions. This to help customers and Northvolt to better track their batteries over time, through intelligence derived from productionized advanced analytics models.

Example of use cases are: models to help us understand and predict battery aging, connect these to usage patterns as well as detection of anomalies in our battery system in operation.

You will develop these machine learning solutions together with our team of data scientists and software engineers. As you will be one of the first data scientists with specific focus on machine learning you will have a great opportunity to impact what and how we will do in this area.

At Northvolt we all work tightly together in 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. Do you have what it takes to be a part of our team?

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 two gigafactories: Northvolt Ett in Skellefteå, Sweden, and Northvolt Zwei in Salzgitter, Germany. 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.
