We are looking for an exceptionally innovative and driven individual to join in our mission to build a greener future. This role is part of Northvolt’s sodium ion team based in Västerås and Stockholm. By joining us, you will be a key player in developing the next generation of battery technology, an even more sustainable and competitive product and contribute to the global transition towards a clean and carbon-neutral energy future.

About the job

You will be an integral part of the program office, interacting with internal and external stakeholders to create the foundation for connecting the development and industrialization efforts to commercial and financing initiatives.
In the role you will be responsible for creating and maintaining qualitative and quantitative analysis of ongoing efforts within the program, helping in steering the development to success while getting unique insights and learnings in both technical and commercial settings. You will gather and analyze information, formulate and test hypotheses, and develop and communicate recommendations.
We aim to reinvent how batteries are designed, produced and used around a new technology platform. This is stretching from R&D efforts all the way to end-customer value creation and financing strategies. You are expected to be creative in finding solutions to push yourself and your colleagues across the organization to ensure progress and success of the program. You need to be up to speed on constantly changing circumstances and evaluate proposed solutions from different stakeholders, making non-biased decisions that create the most value.
As an intern within the team you receive support, coaching and mentoring from the team across many different sectors, building up know-how along the complete value chain for battery industries. This includes but is not limited to R&D, legal, financing, business development, etc.
You will primarily interact with, and get support from, senior managers within the program to help guide your work and career at Northvolt.

About the team
You will join a fairly new effort and thus a small but dedicated team which will grow with the progress of this project. This role gives you the opportunity to be part of an exciting new project from the beginning and allows you to grow and take on additional responsibility fast. The dedicated core team includes cell design, process and materials engineering, commercialization strategy and factory development, etc. However, this project requires cross-functional contribution across the entire organization which will be a key aspect of this role. In this position, you will join a passionate team that is driven by creating an even more sustainable product which will make a significant impact for Northvolt and the transition towards a greener future.
