Note: While we accept applications at all experience levels, we are particularly interested in candidates who are at an early stage in their career. Don't worry if you are not yet an expert in all tools and tech today. We are looking for new team members who will grow with us. Now, on with the job description...

We are looking to grow the data team within Northvolt Software Engineering & AI. Our factories, batteries and R&D laboratories are producing large amounts of heterogenous data that get uploaded to our cloud platform, and are then processed, organized, and ready for analysis. Working together with the data team, you will partner and collaborate with cross-functional stakeholders across Northvolt. As a Data Scientist, you will contribute directly to solving problems, lead discovery of insights, and build a shared knowledge base. We strive to use technology and data to co-develop solutions that matter, and welcome applicants from diverse experience levels and backgrounds.

We are searching for someone passionate about using data visualization, statistics, and modeling to tell stories. The ideal candidate is a curious life-long learner who takes ownership and is eager to collaborate to build better products. In this role, you will be a true data advocate across the organization and spend a significant part of your time collaborating with Northvolt colleagues outside the software team. You enjoy communicating and empathizing with people in diverse professional roles, cultural backgrounds, and experience levels in data-driven approaches. This role is a vital member of the Software Engineering & AI team and is key to Northvolt's mission to enable the future of energy.

Key responsibilities include

  • Working closely with management and engineers to identify most valuable data solutions and bringing these ideas through design to implementation and deployment (Example: Create regular business intelligence style reports on manufacture throughput, quality, and data completeness that can be used by both technical and non-technical users)
  • Developing solutions for tracking performance, characterizing operation patterns, and detecting anomalies in our factories and battery products in the field (Example: Create real-time dashboards that track quality parameters in data generated from manufacuring equipment)
  • Defining requirements (data schema, storage, user experience) and actively contributing to development of self-service data analytics tools across teams within Northvolt (Example: Recommend solution for and help build analysis environment in Apache Superset, a custom web application, or a mobile app to explore traceability data for cells that are produced in our factory)
  • Sharing knowledge and skills in data analysis and data science broadly within Northvolt to make every team more data-driven (Example: Train Thermal Engineers to use AWS, Python and Jupyter Notebooks to access, visualize, and analyze detailed thermistor data from our battery packs to find root cause of temperature related faults)

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.
