Are you the one?

Northvolt is establishing it's first mass-production facility in Skellefteå. In joining us you will play an important part from the very start in building one of the first large scale European battery factories.

As Maintenance engineer you will be a part of establishing maintenance routines and learn from equipment suppliers as well as the commissioning teams in order to become an expert within the factory. Your role will include the execution of preventative maintenance in collaboration with operators as well as being reactive to perform corrective maintenance when needed.

  • Developing and optimizing the maintenance for the equipment in terms of reliability, cost and safety.

  • Assessing and reporting safety hazards associated with maintenance of equipment

  • Take proper and fast action when having failures and deviations affecting the production.

  • Establishing a good culture where all of us work together to provide the best solutions to employees, customers, suppliers, owners and thereby the best to Northvolt.

  • Always strive to improve with focus on safety, quality, environment and production efficiency.

  • Giving positive and constructive corrective feedback to your own team members and other shift teams, in order to make room for improvements and development.

The first people to join our Maintenance team are curious, eager to learn and real problem solvers. We are looking for team members that are strongly goal oriented, as well as good communicators.
