Northvolt has an exciting opportunity for a  Cell Test Engineer in the Quality test labs team.

During the coming months we will plan and mobilise our cell testing laboratories for the first large scale European factory for Li-ion cells. Quality Test labs will validate the safety and performance of production cells. The Cell Test Engineer will play a key role in a new emerging team.

You will be coordinating, supporting, and contributing in cross-functional teams to establish an effective operating model for cell test labs and meeting automotive customer requirements. Initially you will oversee the creation of new testing procedures, HSE & operational processes and control documentation associated with testing activities.

In general, you will have experience in testing and have a good sense of responsibility and commitment. Specifically, you have a good understanding of working and cooperating across different teams in a multicultural environment. You will be based at the facility in Skellefteå with occasional travel to Västerås.

Key-responsibilities includes but are not limited to:

  • Establish testing methods which satisfy customer and internal stakeholder requirements
  • Plan, organize and be responsible for execution of production related testing activities
  • Support with requirements for construction and procurement activities associated with creating new lab
  • Develop lab operating procedures, including HSE
  • Run training sessions for new technicians
  • Sharing test results and associated KPIs

The person we are looking for is a team player, curious and eager to learn. Our organisation requires and values great self-discipline and a natural talent to make things happen. The Cell Test Engineer is vital to Northvolt, ensuring we have a Quality product, since you will be testing cells directly after they have been produced.

What we offer you

We offer you a very diverse work environment with over 85 different nationalities. You will be given a unique opportunity to be a part of building a great company and having a real impact. The Test Engineer is a vital role to Northvolt's quality standards, the success of Northvolt and key to Northvolt's mission to enable the future of energy.

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.
