Northvolt is searching for highly talented simulation engineers to join our vibrant and growing team. With your experience in mechanical and thermal simulation, you will play an integral role in the design, validation, and qualification of our safe, long-lasting, high-performance lithium-ion batteries.

At Northvolt, your responsibilities will include developing and validating mechanical and thermal models of lithium-ion batteries. You will then apply these models to help address internal and external project requirements. A proportion of your role will involve planning appropriate experiments for model validation and processing the resulting data.

This is your chance to contribute to the development of the world's greenest and most sustainable lithium-ion batteries.

Key responsibilities:

  • Perform mechanical and thermal simulations of lithium-ion batteries to support cell design, cell validation, and customer requirements

  • Analyse and process experimental data for modelling purposes

  • Parameterize and validate mechanical and thermal models of lithium-ion batteries

  • Plan, organize, direct, and follow up on project-related modelling activities

  • Execute engineering tasks defined within projects to meet schedule, budget, and specifications

Please apply with a CV in English and your complete LinkedIn profile.

Full-time employment, fixed salary.

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.
