Material Engineer - Anode

Northvolt has an exciting job offer for an experienced anode engineer to join our stellar/bold/passionate team in Västeras.

In joining us you will play an important part from the very start in building one of the first large scale European battery factories. Northvolt will play an important role in the transformation to a carbon free society.

As an experienced anode engineer, you will work around Li-ion battery cells with the focus on anode.

Evaluation and Analysis related works will be carried out toward the final goal of successful anode incorporation in commercial and R&D cell projects. The works will be carried out with the consultation of senior engineers.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Active material evaluation in its physico-chemical aspects including bet, DSC, various densities and orientation index (XRD) in colaboration with QC lab.
  • Basic Slurry mixing and evaluation: acquiring basic mixing information for successful anode coating.
  • Basic electrode fabrication and evaluation such as electrolyte soaking, springback and adhesion test.
  • Basic cell fabrication and evaluation: especially coincell fabrication and evaluation will be essential, even though part of the work could be outsourced as needed. Still it should to be followed up and summarized by anode engineers.
  • Electro chemical tests including swelling, EIS, Li plating, rate capability, cyclability, high temperature and low temperature characteristics: Even though some part of the evaluation can be outsourced, data organization and analysis will be very important part since it will give a clue to selection of material and also direction of improvement.

You will be assigned to a specific battery cell projects to follow-up the specific needs of the cell development around the anode. – The ultimate goal of anode activity is its successful incorporation into a cell/Electrode.

Communication and follow-up with anode supplier and new developers will be also important part of the job: While we will try to do more internal evaluation, utilizing suppliers’ data and test resources will be also important in evaluation and selecting good candidates.

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.
