The factory blueprint organization is a new team enabling the delivery of a lean, scalable, digital “blueprint” of a rapidly deployable, highly efficient world class battery factory. The “blueprint team” will organize existing content while also build new content to enable a comprehensive solution spanning process, equipment, materials, and facility and utilities. While delivering the plan “on paper”, the blueprint organization will also practically support key tactical issues in manufacturing operations to ensure customer deliverables as well as the most accurate and useful blueprint product possible.

We are looking for Data Scientists to create, execute and maintain tools and structures for measuring and improving manufacturing (and blueprint) performance.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Involvement from start to finish, from data acquisition, to storage, analysis, and meaningful action to improve manufacturing performance.
  • This role will use all available numerical signals from automation, supplementing qualitative data, to extract the best performance from the factory and improve insights at both the shop floor and working level. Tools for engineers but also factory workers such as SCADA / “andon” boards are a primary focus.
  • Surround yourself with manufacturing data and transform the growing manufacturing operation
  • Selects tools and structures for acquiring, storing, analyzing, and acting to improve manufacturing
  • Creates and implements SCADA tools collaborating with operations and engineering teams
  • Designs evaluates and monitors key metrics, understanding root causes of changes in metrics
  • Builds and shares live dashboards and reports complete with user documentation

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.
