Northvolt has an exciting job offer for a Project Manager to join our Blueprint team.

The mission of the blueprints team is to deliver a lean and scalable digital factory blueprint of a highly efficient world class battery factory. It will constitute a comprehensive solution with guidelines and tools needed to establish the factory spanning process, equipment, materials, facility, utilities and people.

In the long-term, you will have the opportunity to enable and drive the replication of other giga-factories in the world.

While simultaneously delivering the plan digitally, the blueprint organization will support key tactical issues in manufacturing operations to ensure customer deliverables as well as the most accurate and useful blueprint product possible.

The project manager in the blueprint team will be responsible for creating an efficient road map for the development of the blueprint. The latter implies, but is not limited to, taking ownership of any activity related initial content specification, to content creation consolidation, and the actual implementation.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • In collaboration with the Northvolt team, designing and building a detailed project plan for the blueprint
  • Manage and coordinate project resources from Northvolt to ensure project delivery during both the planning and execution phase

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.
