The electrification of cars, trucks and busses is one of the most extensive and disruptive industry transformations ever. Northvolt leads this change and aims to become the leading battery partner for the European automotive industry and set new benchmarks for sustainability and CO2 footprint.

As the Lead Thermal Simulation Engineer, you work in the cross-functional vehicle integration team to evaluate the design of Northvolt's automotive battery solution. You will be responsible for the thermal design and thermal simulation of battery modules. A special emphasize will be on swelling force simulation and the evaluation of design options to manage cell swelling. You will align with cell design, mechanical engineer and electrical engineers and work together to create modules/systems that meet and exceed our customers specification.

We believe you have gathered strong experience in thermal design and thermal simulation of battery cell modules and have worked for automotive projects. You have a genuine technical interest and knowledge and want to drive things. As a person you are structured, love to solve technical problems and meet ambitious targets.

As a part of our vehicle integration team you will, together with dedicated international colleagues get the chance to build up a world class Automotive system R&D group.

You will be based in Västerås, Sweden with commuting distance to Stockholm. Since most of our customer are based in Central Europe some travel will be required.

At Northvolt we all work tightly together with a low level of hierarchy. What we all have in common is that we are bold and passionate, and in whatever area we contribute to - 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 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.
