Northvolt's Research and Development Laboratory (R&D Lab) executes the fabrication of new, novel lithium ion batteries as designed by our world class Cell Design Team. We are literally the first step in building and evaluating the next generation of lithium ion technology.
As a member of this team, you will primarily work in a dry & clean room, operating prototype cell production equipment to produce lithium ion cells. We generally work on a two-shift system, where one week is the morning shift, and the following week is an evening shift.
The person we are looking for is strongly goal oriented, curious and eager to learn. You will get the chance to have a real impact on our success story in Sweden (to start with) and see the results of your work. Our organization requires and values great self-discipline and a natural talent to make things happen. The R&D Technician is a vital member of the R&D Lab team and key to Northvolt's mission to enable the future of energy.
Special Note: R&D Lab is adding a night shift (2230-0700) which, after about 18 months, will convert to a two-shift (0630-1500/1430-2300) schedule. We are particularly interested in individuals who are amenable to these night hours, which comes with a 15-20% pay bonus according to the collective bargaining agreement.

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.
Join us today. Together, let’s enable the future of energy!
