Northvolt‘s journey started in Västerås, Sweden with Northvolt Labs, a prototyping factory already in operation. The first phase of giga-factory - Northvolt Ett in Skellefteå is being constructed, while further expansion project has already kicked off. In joining us you will play an important part from the very start, building the landscape of first large scale European battery factories. Northvolt will play a significant role in the transformation to a carbon free society.
We have a pretty awesome job offer for a Lead Developer within our excellent and passionate Planning and Logistics Team at Northvolt. If you're as cool as this job ad, you'd be located in Stockholm, report to the Director of Planning and Logistics and have the opportunity to secure Northvolt’s successful growth in Sweden, Poland and beyond.
Your primary assignment will be to drive key, interdepartmental projects, pulling together stakeholders from across the Northvolt landscape, both within Supply Chain, as well as beyond. Everything we do is new and at Northvolt we do it for the first time - we need your help.
You will also regularly find yourself assisting your colleagues as a special agent deployed to a task force. Like James Bond, but minus the gun and the Martini.
In broad terms and without going into too much detail, Team Planning and Logistics looks after everything that moves or needs to be stored. Before it does, we also need to do quite a bit of planning, but that's a separate story.
Our mission is to support Northvolt’s growth and expansion with logistical and planning expertise and to create a robust operational framework, within which Northvolt units can operate. In parallel, we must secure sustainability of our solutions while maintaining supply chain efficiency.
You have worked with logistics on a global level, but your professional home is Europe or closely tied to it. And look... we know that there is no candidate that ticks all the boxes... we get this, but there's a few things (we understood by now) that are rather important.
So, broadly speaking, we would really want you to have strong background in the field of planning, moving and storing of materials, components and finished goods. Both across the world, as well as on-site and inside a plant.
Excellent understanding of end to end supply chain in a manufacturing industry is super important - the projects you'd be running stretch well beyond one type, mode or direction of flow.
We realised as well, that those of us, who had in their past built big from nothing or little find their place at Northvolt much easier. So if have been driving or been engaged in greenfield or brownfield projects, where logistical solutions, routes and networks were built from the ground up or heavily re-designed - you will feel at home.
And lastly, since most of our customers are car or truck manufacturers, it would be ideal, if you did the things above in an OEM or tier 1 environment.
Some of the things you would get to do on the job (actual order will likely be quite different):
Draft, publish and maintain updates to next year's best selling epos "Northvolt Planning and Logistics Blueprint"
Lead key Planning and Logistics development projects, managing cross-functional teams and individual contributors
Take part in designing and building of end-to-end logistics, connecting Northvolt's suppliers, factories, customers, recycling locations and aftermarket requirements
On an ad-hoc basis support Northvolt factories with your operational excellence experience
Support and coach Planning and Logistics Coordinators, Specialists and Developers
Provide input and support in development of the KPI dashboard
Education and Experience
You have 10+ years of relevant working experience in Planning and Logistics or Supply Chain Development arena, ideally:
inside and outside a manufacturing plant
in a start-up / greenfield / brownfield setting
at an OEM or tier 1 supplier
You're super good with people
You can explain fairly complex things to a child
You love diversity. We are like 100 nationalities at Northvolt!
Your good with computers and systems: ERP, WMS, TMS (preferably D365 suite), MS Office
Skills and Abilities
Qualities that we cherish are friendliness, openness, flexibility, sense of quality, motivation to take on new challenges, grit, and a sense of humour.
The person we are looking for is cheerful, positive, curious, creative and eager to learn. You will get the chance to have a real impact on our success story in Sweden (to start with) and see the results of your work. Our organisation requires and values great self-discipline and a natural talent to make things happen. Logistics Procurement function is of massive importance in the Supply Chain Organisation and key to Northvolt's mission to enable the future of energy.

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.
