Northvolt is further expanding facilities in Västerås. Therefore we are looking to hire a Program Manager with a strong track record in early project execution of complex construction projects.

As Program Manager, you will take ownership of the early project execution in a subset of a large-scale battery factory being built in Germany. You will be the key person in one of the largest factory projects in Europe, ensuring planning of building, process utilities and manufacturing equipment.

You will be responsible for prioritizing project resources, managing partners and ensuring the cost and timeliness of projects are according to plan. You are expected to build up and strengthen the in-house team.

The Program Manager will work across a number of different disciplines within Northvolt, including construction, process design and procurement. You will work with your project resources on a daily basis but will, in addition to that, have daily interactions with respective work stream leaders in Northvolt.

In general, you have experience in driving and leading large and complex projects. You are execution-oriented and can motivate your colleagues and team to go the extra mile.

You have experience as project manager driving greenfield/brownfield projects in demanding industries, e.g. mining, oil & gas, pharmaceutical, automotive, semi-conductor manufacturing.

You may have experience from projects such as building new sites, installing new equipment, and/or major re-work on current infrastructure. Your involvement in such projects has been in designing and planning and/or driving and tracking execution of such projects, as well as being deeply involved in day-to-day problem solving.

You are creative, open-minded and willing to work on many tasks at the same time, from double checking a calculation from an equipment vendor, to filling out an excel template to leading a complex multi-month installation exercise.

You will get the chance to have a real impact on our success story in Europe and see the results of your work. Our organization requires and values great self-discipline and a natural talent to make things happen. Apply with CV in English or your complete LinkedIn profile.

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.
