Are you a driven Facility Engineer that in your job want to contribute to societal difference? We are now looking for you who wants to be part of our team.

We are approaching the scale up of production at the end of the year, and as an Facility Engineer you will have an essential role in the organisation when you are an important part of the planning, implementing and maintaining of the infrastructure as well as equipment of the buildings and facilities.

As an Facility engineer, the days are filled with varying tasks and problem solving, as you work close to the production and operational processes. We are looking for you who has great project management skills, as you will perform analyses of the processes and recommend and implement improvements. This is the opportunity for you who likes to see things from a helicopter view, as well as being an essential part of the daily work in the production. You will work broadly with analyzing the resource allocation, our energy use and also our safety processes within the facility area.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Collecting, analysing and presenting data regarding the facility’s resource requirements (ex. responsible for collecting data regarding the need of spare parts, maintenance, environmental, health, safety, energy, controls/instrumentation and HVAC)

  • Designing and optimising the facility’s layout and operational systems

  • Evaluate, develop, implement and continuously improve the utility plans, systems and operation

  • Coordinate, plan, document and develop the infrastructure and equipment maintenance schedules, activities and routines

The person we are looking for is strongly goal oriented, curious and eager to learn. You have great communication skills, you thrive in teamwork and problem solving. Our organisation requires and values great self-discipline and a natural talent to make things happen, and we see that this role demands excellent project management skills and knowledge in structural code requirements.

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.
