Job Description

Northvolt has an electrifying job opening for an engineer with experience in the field of material flow and automation equipment (e.g. Automatic Storage and Retrieval Systems, Buffers, Conveyors, Robots). Should you choose to accept this future focused mission, you will play a vital role in designing the infrastructure for enabling efficient and innovative material flow throughout the battery manufacturing process for our next big projects. Do you want to play an important role in the transformation to a carbon free society?

The work environment requires an enthusiastic problem solver. Your projects will be implemented in a production environment which has very high demands on cleanliness and up-time to reach the quality level and production efficiency. We will work with the best solution providers globally to pull this off utilizing a combination of proven technologies and design of new innovative solutions.

Now more about you: Your previous professional work experience as industrial engineer/project engineer/production engineer or other relevant positions has given you an eye for robust industrial designs. This combined with your experience and knowledge in technical project planning, design, commissioning, and manufacturing makes your implementations practical. You love to drive cross-functional discussions and consider and translate all the variables that matter to your internal counterparts and external global suppliers. Even in the face of complex industrial automation projects, you pay attention to detail when it counts, and know how to prioritize for timely delivery of your scope.

Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Specify equipment in the form of project specifications, requirements, and generating request for quotations.
  • Identify and leverage outside partners for solution development and design.
  • Coordinate with other Northvolt departments (e.g. Construction, Digitization, Supply Chain) to ensure successful execution.
  • Support and provide inputs in the modelling and simulation of individual technologies and entire systems.
  • Ensure suppliers understand and adhere to Northvolt’s technical standards.

  • Work with factory simulation to validate line capacities and develop flow paths.

  • Partner with the automation and controls team to implement the material flow concepts and system design into functions in the FMS/WCS/FCS/MES.

The person we are looking for is goal oriented, can maintain a good sense of humor when pressure rises, curious and eager to learn. You will get the chance to have a real impact on our success story and see the results of your work. Our organization requires and values great self-discipline and a natural talent to make things happen.
